Culkin caught his first career pass, but for the most part it was a disappointing season for the second-year tight end. While it's unclear if Antonio Gates will return to the team, Hunter Henry (knee) should be back in 2019 and the continual presence of Virgil Green will likely hinder Culkin's opportunities to receive consistent looks.

Culkin sat out the last four games due to a lingering back injury, but will retake the field versus Denver. The second-year tight end will serve a depth role behind Antonio Gates and Virgil Green.
Culkin (back) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Culkin practiced in a limited capacity each day this week. The Missouri product is in danger of missing his fourth consecutive game Sunday due to a lingering back injury. If Culkin misses Sunday's game, the Los Angeles offense likely wouldn't be impacted much.
Culkin (back) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Ravens.
Culkin will miss his third straight game due to a lingering back injury. The second-year tight end has only been targeted once this season and hasn't seen more than 20 offensive snaps since Week 6, so his continued absence is unlikely to notably impact the Chargers' offense.
