  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Inactive for Week 2

    Spiller is inactive for Thursday night's game against Kansas City.

    With Spiller the odd man out for now, the Chargers' Week 2 backfield is slated to be led by Austin Ekeler, with Joshua Kelley and Sony Michel on hand to handle complementary work versus the Chiefs.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Healthy scratch to start career

    Spiller (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Raiders, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The rookie overcame a preseason ankle injury by returning to practice as a full participant this past week, but the Chargers will still have Spiller in street clothes for the season-opening divisional clash. Recent veteran addition Sony Michel will serve as the No. 3 running back behind the top backfield duo of Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley against Las Vegas.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Practicing fully

    Spiller (ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

    The rookie fourth-round pick is thus slated to be available for the Chargers' season opener against the Raiders, but as long as undisputed top back Austin Ekeler remains healthy, Spiller might have only a small role on offense. The Chargers also have Joshua Kelley and Sony Michel on hand as candidates to see complementary snaps and touches behind Ekeler.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Returns from ankle sprain

    Spiller (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

    The rookie was out for less than two weeks after spraining his ankle in the Chargers' second preseason game. He may be only third or fourth on the depth chart to start the year, but it at least appears he'll be available if the Chargers need him, which could be fairly soon given that the other guys (Joshua Kelley, Larry Rountree) jostling for backup roles behind Austin Ekeler were unimpressive last year.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Considered week-to-week

    Spiller (ankle) is considered week-to-week, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

    He won't play in the Chargers' final preseason game and can be considered questionable for Week 1 against the Raiders. Even if he gets healthy, it isn't clear Spiller will have a role in the season opener, as he ran behind Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree this preseason. The rookie fourth-round pick is capable of moving ahead of those players as the year progresses, but this ankle injury probably ends any chance Spiller will do it before Week 1.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Suffers ankle injury

    Spiller suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys and is questionable to return.

    Spiller was the third back to earn a carry for the Chargers, behind both Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree. Spiller also was ineffective with the opportunity given, tallying only three rushes for three yards prior to his exit. It's unclear how long the issue may sideline him, but it appears as if he has plenty of work to do to make an impact in the offense.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Garners 44 total yards in debut

    Spiller rushed 10 times for 34 yards and brought in his only target for 10 yards in the Chargers' 29-22 preseason loss to the Rams on Saturday night.

    The rookie fourth-round pick saw his first carry with 4:39 remaining in the first half as the third running back in, and he ended up pacing the Chargers in carries and rushing yards. While Spiller wasn't exactly efficient on the ground, he was also playing behind an assortment of second- and third-team offensive linemen. Spiller remains in a battle with the likes of Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree for positioning behind Austin Ekeler, and he should have ample opportunity to make his case again in next Saturday night's home preseason clash against the Cowboys.
