  • Chargers' Joshua Kelley: Could see uptick in playing time

    Head coach Brandon Staley suggested Wednesday that Kelley could see increased opportunities out of the Chargers backfield in the weeks to come, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. "Competition for carries is going to be something that you can see happening," Staley said. "We're going to keep exploring, making adjustments so that we can find that rhythm I've been talking about. That's certainly one way to do it."

    Austin Ekeler has struggled badly since his Week 6 return from a high-ankle sprain, and he's averaging a career-low 3.5 yards per carry on the season, a full yard below his 2022 average. Kelley has seen just 5.1 carries per game since Ekeler returned to the lineup, but the Chargers badly need an offensive spark, and upping Kelley's usage could be a way to improve the overall efficiency in the run game.

  • Chargers' Amen Ogbongbemiga: Dealing with hamstring injury

    Ogbongbemiga didn't practice Wednesday due to a hamstring issue.

    The extent of Ogbongbemiga's injury isn't clear, but given his DNP on Wednesday and the nature of hamstring injuries, there's a chance he'll be unable to suit up Sunday against the Broncos. The third-year linebacker has played in all 12 of Los Angeles' games this season but has primarily seen work on special teams, logging just five defensive snaps, four of which came in Week 2 versus the Titans.

  • Chargers' Ja'Sir Taylor: Opens week with full practice

    Taylor (illness) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

    Taylor missed Sunday's Week 13 win over New England due to an illness, but he appears to be feeling better since he was able to log a full practice session to open Week 14 prep. The second-year cornerback has had a major role on the Chargers' defense at times this season but he may have fallen out of favor given that he didn't log any defensive snaps Week 12 versus Baltimore. However, starter Deane Leonard didn't practice Wednesday due to an ankle/heel issue, so Taylor could be thrust back into a significant snap count Sunday against the Broncos if Leonard doesn't suit up.

  • Chargers' Nick Vannett: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Vannett (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Vannett has been dealing with the aftermath of a concussion presumably suffered Week 11 against the Packers, and he's been held out of each of the Chargers' past two games. Though it's not clear if he's cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, the tight end's limited practice session Wednesday is a positive sign of progress after he logged a trio of DNPs during prep last week. Vannett is behind Gerald Everett, Donald Parham and possibly Stone Smartt in Los Angeles' tight end pecking order, and he hasn't logged more than 20 percent of the team's offensive snaps in any of the three games in which he's played thus far.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Limited after return designation

    Palmer (knee) was a limited participant Wednesday in his return to practice.

    After the Chargers designated Palmer for return from IR on Wednesday, the team will now have a three-week window to evaluate him in practice before potentiall adding him back to the 53-man roster. The Chargers haven't ruled Palmer out from making his return to the lineup Sunday against the Broncos, but he'll likely need to upgrade to full practice participation Thursday or Friday in order to get the green light to play.

  • Chargers' Joshua Palmer: Practice window opens

    The Chargers designated Palmer (knee) for return from injured reserve Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The transaction opens up a 21-day window wherein Palmer can be activated from IR and added to the 53-man roster at any point. His presence would be a notable boost to the Chargers' receiving corps, which is lacking in reliable contributors beyond No. 1 option Keenan Allen. Depending on how confident the Chargers are in Palmer's health coming out of their three practices this week, he could be available to play as early as this Sunday versus Denver.
