Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Inactive Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) is officially inactive for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs.

With Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) also out, Justin Jackson is in line to head the Chargers' Week 15 backfield, with Detrez Newsome and Troymaine Pope available to work in complementary/reserve duties.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) will not play Thursday against the Chiefs, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Gordon's status for Week 15 still has not been officially revealed, but this report provides even more proof that he will not return to action Thursday night. With Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) already ruled out, Justin Jackson is in line to start at running back for the Chargers.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Trending toward missing Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (knee) appears likely to sit out Thursday night's game against the Chiefs, Omar Ruiz of NFL Network reports.

We'll get confirmation of such an outcome, either way, upon the release of the Chargers' inactives in advance of Thursday's 8:20 ET kickoff. If Gordon is made inactive, Justin Jackson would head the team's Week 15 running attack, given that Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) is out.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Looking like no-go Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

When asked by Omar Ruiz of NFL Network if he was going to play Thursday against the Chiefs, Gordon (knee) "shook his head sideways, indicating a no."

Gordon's status for Thursday's contest will not be official until the Chargers' inactives released, and there is certainly still a chance he could play, but given that he himself answered the question in regards to his availability, the arrow for him playing is pointing down. Gordon's status will be revealed shortly before 6:00 PM (ET), but the early indication is it will be Justin Jackson starting at running back for the Chargers on Thursday night.

Chargers' Melvin Gordon: Uphill battle to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, "it will be challenging" for Gordon (knee) to suit up Thursday night at Kansas City.

Gordon was initially given a 2-to-4 week timetable for his return from a Grade 2 MCL sprain, and the Thursday night matchup lies 18 days since that diagnosis. Schefter notes that a final determination will be made on Gordon during pregame warmups, but his tone did not appear to be overly optimistic. In any case, anyone considering rostering Gordon this week will need to pay careful attention to the inactives announcement that will occur approximately 90 minutes prior to the 8:20 p.m. EST kickoff. Should Gordon be forced to miss his third game in a row, Justin Jackson would earn immediate consideration as the projected lead back, given that Austin Ekeler (neck/concussion) has already been ruled out. Whether its Gordon or Jackson, the Chargers will be facing a defense that is surrendering the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs in standard formats.
