Chargers' Austin Ekeler: Limited while sporting cast
Ekeler (hand) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, sporting a large cast over his broken left hand, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Judging by the size of the cast, Ekeler presumably will be limited to a special-teams role if he's cleared to play in Sunday's game against the Jets. His usual duties as a passing-down back are out of the question, and it also appears he would have difficulty taking handoffs. Branden Oliver will thus serve as the top backup to Melvin Gordon, who could get a few extra targets with Ekeler out of the backfield rotation.
