Coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that Ballage will most likely serve as the Chargers' "primary back" heading into Sunday's game against the Jets, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Lynn also said that he wants to scheme more looks for Ballage, even though the third-yard back already saw an ample workload in last week's loss to the Dolphins, when he handled 23 touches and surpassed 100 yards from scrimmage. Though he currently sits atop the depth chart, Ballage's reign as the No. 1 back will likely only last as long as Austin Ekeler (hamstring/knee) remains on injured reserve. The Chargers are tentatively hoping that Ekeler can make it back from IR for a Week 12 game in Buffalo, but even if that's the case, Ballage could still see plenty of use in a complementary role.
