Position Listing
Kyle Emanuel
No Updates
Melvin Gordon
News
Gordon (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Gordon has been productive of late, combining for 45 carries for 188 yards and a rushing TD to go along with 15 catches for 125 yards and three receiving scores over his last two games. He's available Sunday, as expected, after dealing with some shoulder soreness in recent days. He'll take aim at a Denver defense that has allowed an average of 70.2 rushing yards per game to date, a figure that ranks them behind only the Eagles (65.7).

Cardale Jones
News
The Chargers released Kellen Clemens and kept Jones on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

According to Jack Wang of the LA Daily News , the Chargers plan to re-sign Clemens, which might push Jones back to No. 3 on the depth chart. Saturday's transaction does at least suggest the team is interested in developing Jones, who was acquired from the Bills in July in exchange for a conditional draft pick.

Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Denver
Denzel Perryman
News
Perryman (ankle) is on track to practice this week, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Perryman is at the front end of the original 8-10 week recovery timetable, but due to the Chargers Week 9 bye, he cannot come off injured reserve until the team's Week 10 game against the Patriots. The 23-year-old can still return to practice this week per the IR-return rules, and will likely ease in to help avoid any setbacks.

Injury
Ankle - IR-R for Week 7 vs. Denver
Andre Williams
News
Williams signed a contract with the Chargers on Saturday.

Williams was cut by the Chargers at the start of September after an uneventful preseason. The team likely added Williams to bolster its backfield depth, with second-string running back Branden Oliver (hamstring) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants. The 2014 fourth-round pick will likely see a limited role behind Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler against his former team Sunday.

Nick Dzubnar
News
Dzubnar was promoted to the active roster after signing with the Chargers on Saturday.

It's unlikely he'll have much of a fantasy impact in the early going, but there's a chance he can move his way up the depth chart as the season progresses.

Travis Benjamin
News
Benjamin did not record a catch in the 17-16 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

Benjamin saw his snap count totals dip drastically from the previous week, perhaps due to the return of 2017 first-round pick Mike Williams, who played in his first NFL game after missing the first five weeks thanks to a herniated disk in his back. It's clear Benjamin is no better than the fifth-best option on offense, with the Chargers keen on highlighting the emerging Hunter Henry and Melvin Gordon, as well as nominal starting wide receivers Tyrell Williams and Keenan Allen. As a result, it's tough to project Benjamin putting together consistent numbers moving forward.

Antonio Gates
News
Gates caught his lone pass for 16 yards in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

Sunday's performance was the biggest in-season drop-off in terms of targets and yardage for Gates, as the veteran has seen a steady decline in production since catching his record-breaking touchdown pass in Week 2. While Hunter Henry's rise up the depth chart isn't much of a shocker -- five catches for 90 yards Sunday -- it was a bit surprising to see Sean McGrath see 25 snaps compared to Gates' 37, perhaps highlighting the Chargers' emphasis on giving new blood a chance to shine.

Isaiah Burse
News
Burse (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Burse's head injury seems like it could be more serious than we originally thought. He'll need to make a full recovery before returning to action.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Chris Hairston
News
Hairston was placed on the Non-Football Illness list Thursday and has been ruled out for the year, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Hairston was expected to serve as a backup tackle for most of the 2017 season. The team signed offensive lineman Tyler Marz from the Titans' practice squad to take over that role in Hairston's absence.

Injury
Undisclosed - Out for Week 7 vs. Denver
Josh Keyes
News
Keyes signed a contract with the Chargers on Monday, Hayley Elwood of the team's official site reports.

Keyes has experience working with Chargers linebackers coach Richard Smith when both were with the Falcons last winter, so this addition makes sense. Fellow linebacker Nigel Harris was waived in a corresponding move.

Tyrell Williams
News
Williams caught all three of his passes for 27 yards but recorded a fumble in the Chargers' 17-16 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

It's about to get incredibly frustrating for fantasy owners of Williams in the coming weeks, as the 25-year-old saw his lowest snap count of the season (44) thanks in part to the addition of Mike Williams, who took part in his first game after suffering a back injury during the preseason. It's a trend that likely won't end anytime soon, particularly as the other Williams begins to regain his strength.

Jason Verrett
News
Verrett (knee) underwent successful knee surgery three weeks ago and has been encouraged by the rehab process, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

After aggravating a torn ACL in Week 1 and requiring another procedure, Verrett will essentially have a second consecutive season wiped out due to injury. While it's good to see that Verrett's spirits have been high following the second surgery, the poor health he's displayed thus far in his brief career will likely limit his earning potential as he heads into free agency this offseason.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Corey Liuget
News
Liuget (back) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Liuget will miss his first game since 2015, but he's produced measly fantasy numbers this season so fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much. Expect to see Darius Philon to start opposite of Joey Bosa on the Chargers' defensive front.

Injury
Back - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Denver
James Onwualu
No Updates
Austin Ekeler
News
Ekeler carried the ball once for one yard and also recorded one catch for eight yards in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

It was the Melvin Gordon Show on Sunday, as the star running back ran rampant over the Raiders defense to the tune of 150 total yards and two touchdowns. As a result, Ekeler saw very little action, totaling just seven snaps on offense. So long as Branden Oliver (hamstring) remains out, Ekeler is the prime handcuff to Gordon.

Kaleb Eulls
News
Eulls (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Eulls will have to sit out his second season following the IR designation. The Mississippi State product was not expected to have any significant role coming into this season.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Spencer Pulley
News
Pulley started at center during the team's joint practice with the Rams on Saturday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Pulley took over for incumbent starter Matt Slauson, who shifted over to left guard with Forrest Lamp (knee) expected to miss the rest of the season. The undrafted free agent played 44 snaps at center during the 2016 season.

Forrest Lamp
News
Lamp (knee) underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee Monday, Eric Williams of ESPN reports.

Everything reportedly looks good following the surgery. Before he went down during the first week of camp, the second-round pick was expected to win a starting guard job. However, he'll now wait until next season to make his NFL debut.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Melvin Ingram
News
Ingram secured three tackles (two solo) during Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

Ingram was kept in check for one of the few times this season, with Joey Bosa picking up the lone sack in the contest. The 28-year-old will square off against a susceptible Broncos offensive line next week.

Rayshawn Jenkins
News
Jenkins (concussion) was back at practice as a full participant Wednesday.

Jenkins suffered a concussion in the Chargers season opener, which ultimately led him to miss Week 2. He appears back to full health though and should be on track to provide depth at safety for Sunday's clash against the Chiefs.

Korey Toomer
News
Toomer racked up eight tackles (seven solo) in the 24-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Not surprisingly, Toomer put together solid numbers with shockingly productive inside linebacker Hayes Pullard out thanks to a knee injury. With Denzel Perryman (ankle) nearing a return and Pullard unlikely to miss a second straight game, the days of relying on Toomer in IDP leagues may soon be coming to a close.

Sean McGrath
News
McGrath (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Giants.

McGrath practiced in a limited capacity every day this week, which was good enough for the tight end to warrant an active status in Week 5. Despite suiting up, McGrath has seen just one target in three games this season, so he's unlikely to have a spot in the offensive game plan as long as Hunter Henry and Antonio Gates remain at full strength.

Dillon DeBoer
Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Denver
Matt Slauson
News
Slauson (triceps) took on a full workload at Thursday's practice.

Slauson injured his triceps in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, and he was subsequently limited at Wednesday's practice as a result. However, it appears the Chargers were just being cautious with the veteran. Barring any setbacks, he appears on track to play Sunday against the Giants.

Dan Feeney
No Updates
Michael Davis
News
Davis was added to the Chargers' active roster on Saturday.

Davis recorded 11 tackles in four preseason games with the Chargers and was probably signed due to Jason Verrett (knee) surprisingly being ruled out for Week 2. The undrafted rookie will likely only serve as a depth corner and special teams player against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Brock Hekking
News
Hekking spent the 2016 season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury.

Hekking was waived with an injury designation by the Chargers and placed on IR after he cleared waivers. He'll look to remain healthy and catch on as a depth linebacker and special teams player in 2017.

Injury
Foot - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Denver
Chris Landrum
News
Landrum (shoulder) reverted to injured reserve Wednesday.

Landrum hurt his shoulder in training camp and wasn't available for either of the Chargers' first two preseason games. He's likely stuck on IR all season unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
A.J. Hendy
No Updates
Kenneth Farrow
News
Farrow (ankle) was reverted to the Chargers' injured reserve after being waived/injured.

Farrow was waived/injured Saturday due to an ankle injury that kept him out since the team's second preseason game. The injury ended up being a costly one, as it appears to have cost him a chance at the No. 3 spot on Los Angeles' depth chart.

Injury
Ankle - Injured Reserve
Jatavis Brown
News
Brown (ankle) wasn't on Wednesday's injury report, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Brown has been nursing this injury for over two weeks now, but it looks as if he may be fully recovered. He's been limited in the Chargers' past two games, and it is yet to be seen whether he'll have a full workload Sunday against the Broncos.

Tenny Palepoi
News
Palepoi was reinstated from the reserve/suspended list Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

After serving three games of a four-game suspension at the end of the 2016 season, Palepoi was reinstated after sitting out Week 1. He projects to provide depth on the Chargers' defensive line going forward.

Dontrelle Inman
News
Inman (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Inman was nursing a hamstring injury earlier in the week, but he was able to practice in full Thursday and was deemed healthy. With a healthy receiving corps ahead of him, though, his place in the lineup was considered expendable, and Inman will watch in his street clothes Sunday.

Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Denver
Geremy Davis
News
Davis signed with the Chargers' practice squad Tuesday.

Davis was waived by the Chargers prior to Week 2 when the team needed to sign cornerback Michael Davis to account for injuries in the secondary. Los Angeles has now elected to keep the wideout within the organization after he cleared waivers this weekend.

Tyler Marz
Injury
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Denver
No Updates
Damion Square
News
Jefferson (groin) is nearing a return to action at training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

Jefferson had sports hernia surgery in the latter portion of June, and it appears the Ravens are exercising caution before fully deploying him in training camp. Although head coach John Harbaugh held him out of practice again Friday, he did indicate that Jefferson is ready to go. The 25-year-old played the first four seasons of his career with the Cardinals before signing with the Ravens over the offseason. He tallied 96 tackles, two sacks, and two forced fumbles across 15 games last season. Barring any setbacks, he projects to be the Week 1 starter at free safety.

Drew Kaser
No Updates
Tyler Johnstone
Injury
Donavon Clark
News
Clark (knee) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

Clark's knee injuries have derailed his on-the-field progression over the last several years and will likely strip him of any 2017 impact.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Sam Tevi
No Updates
Russell Okung
News
Okung (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

His return to practice makes it safe to assume that he's no longer dealing with the ankle injury that kept him out of Sunday's preseason game against the Saints. If this is the case, the Chargers likely will have their most important offensive lineman available for the season opener.

Casey Hayward
News
Hayward (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, Eric Williams of ESPN.com reports.

The hamstring injury wasn't viewed as severe, so it's not surprising to see him return at this point. There has been no indication on whether the 27-year-old will play in Saturday's preseason matchup with the Rams, but even if he does suit up, expect the Chargers to exercise caution.

Tre Boston
News
Boston wrangled seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

The Chargers defense was surprisingly stout against the run, holding the Raiders to just five yards per carry, a number that was massively boosted by a Cordarrelle Patterson's 47-yard reverse. Boston was a major part of the improvement while nearly leading the team in tackles, as he only trailed linebackers Hayes Pullard (10) and Korey Toomer (eight) in stops on the afternoon.

Nick Novak
News
Novak missed one field goal, but connected on the game-winning 32-yard attempt, and also made both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

The missed field goal came after the Chargers intercepted quarterback Derek Carr on his very first throw of the game, with the ensuing drive yielding no yards and a 48-yard shank to the right. Novak made up for the miss by connecting on the 32-yard game-winning field goal, earning positive praise from head coach Anthony Lynn after a season mired by special teams miscues.

Charmeachealle Moore
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Joey Bosa
News
Bosa tallied three tackles (two solo), one sack and forced a fumble in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

What's more impressive: Bosa recording as many sacks (16) as games played in his career, or the fact that Bosa has six games in which he's failed to record a sack yet still has such eye-popping totals? The answer: Both are impressive numbers deserving of an even more impressive player. Bosa will look to continue the trend next week against the Broncos.

Philip Rivers
News
Rivers completed 25 of 36 passes for 268 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 17-16 victory over the Raiders.

While he didn't light up the game by any means, Rivers managed to stay turnover-free for just the second time this season to lead his team to a last-minute victory that culminated with a 32-yard field goal by Nick Novak. It hasn't been flashy, but the aging signal caller is bouncing back nicely after his three-interception meltdown against Kansas City in Week 3 by averaging 291 passing yards per outing while posting a 6:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. However, despite the recent success, Rivers won't be a reliable fantasy option in Week 7 when he and the Chargers take on a stifling Broncos secondary that's allowed only 6.2 YPA heading into their Sunday night game.

Isaac Rochell
No Updates
Joe Barksdale
News
Barksdale (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Barksdale has often been able to battle through this injury in the past, but he didn't practice at all this week so being inactive isn't out of the blue. Michael Schofield will likely slot in at right tackle.

Injury
Foot - Inactive for Week 7 vs. Denver
Desmond King
No Updates
Keenan Allen
News
Allen (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

The matchup is not optimal, but Allen is averaging 10 targets a game and is likely to continue to see his share of looks in the Chargers' Week 7 offense in the absence of any setbacks.

Brett Boyko
No Updates
Whitney Richardson
No Updates
Adrian Phillips
News
Phillips (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Phillips plays mainly in a special teams role, but he's still managed to rack up 15 tackles (12 solo) and an interception through six games. Until he can see an increase in his snap count, though, don't think of him as an IDP threat.

Chris McCain
News
McCain (elbow) has returned to Sunday's game against the Eagles, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.

McCain sustained the injury early in the game and returned to the field shortly after the Chargers announced him as questionable. The 25-year-old will likely resume his role as a rotational outside linebacker for the Chargers.

Branden Oliver
News
Oliver (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Oliver has finally recovered from a hamstring injury that kept him out for two weeks. However, he hasn't been given more than eight carries in a game this season, and behind a versatile Melvin Gordon, Oliver doesn't have much of a fantasy upside.

Hayes Pullard
News
Pullard racked up 10 tackles (two solo) and an interception in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

It was the first interception of Pullard's career and couldn't have come at a better time, given that the Chargers managed to rally in the fourth quarter thanks in large part to the pivotal pick. Pullard has been easily the biggest surprise on the Chargers defense, leading the unit in tackles for the second consecutive week despite being listed as a depth linebacker to begin the season. Given that Pullard played in 93 percent of the team's snaps -- while Korey Toomer and Jatavis Brown logged just 59 and 34 percent, respectively -- it seems the 25-year-old is no longer merely a depth option. As a result, IDP owners would be hard-pressed to find a better under-the-radar player to fill in for their teams.

Craig Mager
News
Mager agreed to join the Chargers practice squad Monday after getting waived by the club Debbie L. Skylar of MyNewsLA.com reports.

Mager played 21 games, starting 10, for the Chargers over the previous two seasons. He could see some time on the 53-man roster this season depending on injuries in front of him.

Hunter Henry
News
Henry corralled five of seven targets for 90 yards during Sunday's 17-16 victory over the Raiders.

Henry's usage seems to be evening out. After seeing zero targets in two of three games to start the season, the second-year tight end has garnered at least three looks in each of his past three outings -- including at least seven in each of the last two. While Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon will remain the clear focal points of this offense going forward, Henry is an effective weapon down the seam who should remain part of the Chargers' offensive gameplan regardless of opponent, as Los Angeles doesn't boast many other players that share the same combination of size and speed.

Mike Windt
No Updates
Michael Schofield
News
Schofield was claimed by the Chargers on Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Schofield figures to function as a depth lineman for the Chargers. Schofield was previously with Denver before being claimed by Los Angeles.

Derek Watt
News
Watt caught his only target for 53 yards in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

Watt managed to take a simple check down in the first quarter 53 yards, nearly scoring as he was tackled just before the end zone. That play set up the Chargers first touchdown, as Philip Rivers was able to connect with Antonio Gates for a touchdown just three plays later. Watt has primarily been used as a lead blocker for Melvin Gordon, and as a result has next to zero fantasy value as he hasn't been in a position to put together fantasy friendly stats.

Jeff Richards
No Updates
Jeremiah Attaochu
News
Attaochu was a full participant at the Chargers practice Sunday.

Attaochu was questionable for the season opener due to a hamstring injury and ultimately did not play. He appeared recovered from the issue prior to Week 2, as he logged full practices all week. However, he was ruled inactive for the team's loss to the Dolphins. It's unclear if he suffered a setback or just wasn't in the team's game plan. The 24-year-old is on track to make his season debut Sunday against the Chiefs unless he sees another healthy scratch.

Mike Williams
News
Williams (back) caught his only pass for 15 yards in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Raiders.

Fantasy owners shouldn't put much stock into Williams' numbers, given the Chargers made it clear they would take it slowly with their prized 2017 first-round pick. It's interesting to note, though, that Williams' arrival saw both Travis Benjamin (21) and Tyrell Williams (44) record season lows in snaps, which could be a sign of things to come once the former Williams gets his feet underneath him.

Jahleel Addae
News
Addae secured four tackles (three solo) in the 17-16 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

Addae saw fellow safety Tre Boston and hybrid option Desmond King all put up similar numbers, with Boston finishing highest of the bunch with seven tackles. Addae will continue to be a reliable if not unspectacular option in IDP leagues moving forward.

Andre Patton

Brandon Mebane
News
Mebane has fully recovered from the biceps tear he suffered last season, the Orange County Register reports.

Mebane was a welcomed addition to the defensive line during his first season with the Chargers in 2016, producing 21 tackles, a sack and an interception across 10 games. While he unfortunately suffered a torn biceps in Week 10 that forced him to finish the season on injured reserve, his return to full health should allow him to participate in the majority of the team's offseason program.

Darius Philon
News
Philon has been receiving first-team reps at defensive end as Joey Bosa continues his holdout, ESPN's Eric D. Williams reports.

With Joey Bosa continuing his holdout, Philon has stepped in and performed well during first-team reps. While the second-year pro will likely take a back seat once Bosa arrives to camp, it appears as if Philon has likely worked his way into San Diego's defensive line rotation and should see an increase in snaps heading into the 2016 season.

Asante Cleveland
News
Cleveland (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve Tuesday.

Cleveland had been waived/injured Monday due to an undisclosed injury. Unless he agrees to an injury settlement with the Chargers, he's likely stuck on IR throughout the end of the 2017 season.

Braedon Bowman
News
Bowman was waived by the Saints on Friday, Mark Inabinett of AL.com reports.

Bowman was trying to make it as a long snapper with the Saints. He's now free to sign elsewhere.

Kellen Clemens
News
Clemens re-signed with the Chargers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Despite his initial release, Clemens was given a spot on the 53-man roster after the Chargers placed linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle) on injured reserve Monday. It is assumed that the veteran will remain the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart, ahead of Cardale Jones.

Kenny Wiggins
News
Wiggins (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Wiggins sprained his ankle Tuesday, but any worry was short-lived. The 29-year-old will continue as the starting right guard.

Trevor Williams
News
Williams recorded one tackle and an interception in the 17-16 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

Williams has quietly held his own opposite of Casey Hayward, recording the first interception of his young career Sunday. While the second-year corner hasn't registered nearly enough counting numbers to earn IDP relevance, his emergence has helped hold together a Chargers defense that could have crumbled following Jason Verrett's season-ending knee injury.
