 Latest Chargers Player Notes
Dec 10 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon may return for the Chiefs game Thursday after missing the last two games with a knee injury. Gordon was injured on a reverse against the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 25.


Dec 10 2018 - Michael Badgley
  PK Michael Badgley was a perfect four-for-four Sunday, including a team-record 59-yarder to end the first half. He finished with 14 points to give him 62 total points for the year, the most by a Chargers kicker through seven games in team history.


Dec 10 2018 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler aggravated a neck injury late in the team's 26-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Ekeler was injured while trying to recover the Bengals' onside kick attempt during the fourth quarter. He remained on the field for several moments before being helped to the sideline. Ekeler, who had 94 total yards and a touchdown against the Bengals, has carried 98 times for 496 yards with two scores this season.


Dec 10 2018 - Keenan Allen
  WR Keenan Allen's 14-yard touchdown on the opening drive Sunday pushed him over the 1,000-yard mark for the third time in his career. Allen now ranks 12th in team history with 28 career TD catches, and extended his career-long streak to five straight games with a touchdown reception.


Dec 10 2018 - Philip Rivers
  QB Philip Rivers had a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the first quarter Sunday when he went 7-for-7 for 104 yards and a touchdown. It was the 11th time in his career to post a perfect passer rating in the opening quarter of a game.


Dec 10 2018 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler aggravated a neck injury during the waning moments of the team's 26-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Ekeler was injured while bidding to recover a Bengals' onside kick attempt during the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest. He remained on the field for several moments before being helped to the sideline. ESPN's Adam Schefter said Ekeler will require further testing as the Chargers (10-3) brace for an AFC West showdown against the Kansas City Chiefs (11-2) on Thursday (8:20 p.m. ET).


Dec 9 2018 - Michael Badgley
  PK Michael Badgley, a rookie who converted the game-winning 29-yard field goal at Pittsburgh last week, made four field goals including a 59-yarder on Sunday. The 59-yarder is the longest in franchise history. He capped the scoring making a 45-yard field goal with 49 seconds left. "You've got to go out there with that kind of confidence," Badgley said. "If you're going out there thinking you're going to miss it, you probably shouldn't be kicking it."


Dec 8 2018 - Jatavis Brown
  LB Jatavis Brown was fined $26,379 for an unnecessary roughness incident.


Dec 7 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon of the Chargers missed a third straight practice on Friday because of a knee injury and later in the day the team announced that he will not play on Sunday against Cincinnati. The Chargers (9-3) are playing it safe with their leading rusher so he can possibly be close to full strength next Thursday night in a key AFC West game against the division-leading Kansas City Chiefs (10-2). Gordon sustained the injury two weeks ago against the Arizona Cardinals and the Chargers said he was "week-to-week" before he sat out last Sunday's victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Dec 5 2018 - Justice Liggins
  WR Justice Liggins was signed by the Chargers to their practice squad Wednesday (Dec. 5). He had been waived by the Chargers Sept. 1.


Dec 5 2018 - Desmond King
  CB/KR Desmond King was tabbed as the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after collecting nine tackles and a 73-yard punt return for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's 33-30 victory versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Dec 3 2018 - Justin Jackson
  RB Justin Jackson gave the offense a big boost in the second half Sunday, accounting for 82 of the Chargers' 231 second-half yards


Dec 3 2018 - Keenan Allen
  WR Keenan Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and one touchdown Sunday. It was the second-most productive game of his career as he fell one catch shy of tying his team-record of 15 catches. It was his 21st 100-yard outing, tying Antonio Gates for ?fth in team history.


Dec 3 2018 - Dylan Cantrell
  WR Dylan Cantrell was signed by the Chargers to fill the spot that opened when RT Joe Barksdale was released. Cantrell was a sixth-round draft pick in this year's draft out of Texas Tech and he suffered a minor injury at the start of training camp that sidelined him the entire preseason. He spent the first 13 weeks of the year on the team's practice squad.


Dec 3 2018 - Dylan Cantrell
  WR Dylan Cantrell was signed by the Chargers from their practice squad Monday (Dec. 3).


Dec 3 2018 - Derwin James
  S Derwin James picked off Ben Roethlisberger at Los Angeles' 8-yard line. It was James' third interception of the season, and second in as many games.


Dec 3 2018 - Travis Benjamin
  WR Travis Benjamin hauled in a 46-yard touchdown reception. It was Benjamin's first touchdown since Week 17 of last season.


Dec 3 2018 - Desmond King
  CB Desmond King scored a second-half touchdown on a 73-yard punt return.


Dec 3 2018 - Justin Jackson
  RB Justin Jackson rallied his team in the second-half comeback, with 82 total yards and a touchdown. He finished with 63 rushing yards on eight carries.


Dec 3 2018 - Keenan Allen
  WR Keenan Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown.


Dec 3 2018 - Philip Rivers
  QB Philip Rivers now has seven comeback wins in his career after being down by 16 points or more. He completed 26 of 36 passes for 299 yards and two touchdowns.


Dec 3 2018 - Michael Badgley
  PK Michael Badgley hit a 29-yard field goal as time expired to cap a 26-point second half for the Los Angeles Chargers, lifting them to a 33-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night at Heinz Field. Badgley initially missed a 39-yard attempt but Pittsburgh was called for offsides. Badgley's ensuing 34-yard attempt was blocked, but the Steelers were again flagged for offsides. He made his third attempt for the game-winner -- with Pittsburgh again drawing the flag for offsides -- but the Chargers obviously declined to claim the win.


Dec 2 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon's stay on the bench could be a relatively short one. Gordon has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3-1) with a sprained MCL in his right knee. He could return, however, as early as next week against the Cincinnati Bengals or versus the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 13, ESPN reported. The 25-year-old Gordon was injured on a reverse early in the second half of last Sunday's 45-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, with a leg whip by defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche taking him down for a 10-yard loss. Los Angeles (8-3) was leading 28-10 at the time.


Nov 30 2018 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler will start for the Chargers in place of injured RB Melvin Gordon on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. When Gordon was out against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7, Ekeler filled in and had 12 carries for 42 yards plus five catches for 26 yards in a 20-19 victory. Gordon leads the Chargers with 153 carries for 802 yards and nine touchdowns, in addition to 44 receptions for 453 yards and four more scores. Ekeler has 70 carries for 409 yards and a touchdown, and 32 catches for 354 yards and three scores.


Nov 30 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon will not play in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers because of a knee injury, the team confirmed on Friday. It was not unexpected because the Chargers said on Monday that Gordon was considered week-to-week after an MRI exam disclosed that he is dealing with an MCL sprain of his right knee. After Gordon failed to practice in any capacity on Wednesday through Friday, coach Anthony Lynn confirmed to reporters that the 25-year-old will be sidelined for the second time this season.


Nov 29 2018 - Troymaine Pope
  RB Troymaine Pope was signed by the Chargers to the practice squad Wednesday (Nov. 28). He had been released by the Seahawks from the practice squad Nov. 20.


Nov 28 2018 - Philip Rivers
  QB Philip Rivers was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after his record-breaking performance in his last outing, the NFL announced Wednesday. Rivers completed 25 consecutive passes to start the game in Sunday's 45-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals, breaking Mark Brunell's record of 22 straight in 2006. Rivers' string of completions tied Ryan Tannehill, who connected on 25 straight passes over a two-game stretch for the Miami Dolphins in 2011. The 36-year-old Rivers finished Sunday's contest with just one incompletion on 29 pass attempts for 259 yards and three touchdowns.


Nov 27 2018 - Derwin James
  S Derwin James now has two interceptions, 3 1/2 sacks and nine pass defenses in his rookie season.


Nov 27 2018 - Michael Badgley
  K Michael Badgley made all six extra points and set a team mark for the most points scored by a kicker (39) through the first five games of his career without a missed field goal. With his field goal in the fourth quarter, he passed George Blair for the most points by a Chargers kicker through five career games (42).


Nov 27 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon (1,255) went over 1,200 scrimmage yards on the season, extending his streak to three seasons with 1,200 yards from scrimmage and at least 10 total touchdowns, the longest active streak in the NFL.


Nov 27 2018 - Austin Ekeler
  RB Austin Ekeler had five carries for 35 yards and a touchdown against the Cardinals. He added 10 receptions for 68 yards.


Nov 27 2018 - Joey Bosa
  DE Joey Bosa had two sacks against the Cardinals. He has the fourth-most multi-sack games (seven) in the NFL since entering the league in 2016. He finished Sunday with five total tackles, two tackles for loss and two quarterback hits.


Nov 26 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon is considered week-to-week with a sprained MCL in his right knee, the team announced Monday. Gordon was injured on a reverse early in the second half of Sunday's 45-10 victory over the Arizona Carddinals, with a leg whip by defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche taking him down for a 10-yard loss. Los Angeles (8-3) was leading 28-10 at the time. "That's a play that we've had in for a long time," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. "We've been trying to get it called in a game. Melvin loves the play, and we were not taking our foot off the gas pedal. It's a play if he gets around the perimeter, he may still be running. But they made a heck of a play and hit us in the backfield."


Nov 25 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon had 10 carries for 61 yards and two touchdowns before leaving with a knee injury in the third quarter. It is not known if he will miss the next game at Pittsburgh.


Nov 25 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon scored two touchdowns in Sunday's 45-10 victory over Arizona. Gordon rushed for 61 yards with two touchdowns on 10 carries despite being limited in the team's last two practices.

Nov 24 2018 - Melvin Gordon
  RB Melvin Gordon is a question mark for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Gordon was limited in practice Thursday and Friday due to knee and hamstring injuries and could be looming as a game-time decision for the Chargers. "Took some of the load off of him today," Los Angeles coach Anthony Lynn said after Friday's practice. "Tomorrow we'll see how he runs around and then Sunday."


Nov 23 2018 - Corey Liuget

Nov 19 2018 - Antonio Gates
  TE Antonio Gates was questionable with a knee injury but ended up playing and hauling in five passes for 80 yards and a score. Three of his receptions came on third-and-longs while another reception was good for a score. He passed Derrick Mason for 18th-most receptions in NFL history.


Nov 19 2018 - Corey Liuget
  DT Corey Liuget will miss the remainder of the season with a right knee injury. Liuget was carted to the locker room after sustaining a torn quad tendon in the first half of the Chargers' 23-22 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Head coach Anthony Lynn announced after the game that Liuget will miss the rest of the season for Los Angeles (7-3), which has lost two key cogs to its defense in as many weeks. Linebacker Denzel Perryman was lost for the season with a knee injury in a 20-6 win at Oakland in Week 10.


Nov 15 2018 - Joey Bosa
  DE Joey Bosa returned to practice this week, but it remains unclear whether he will play in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. The Chargers do not have to decide yet, so they continue to monitor Bosa's progress. It may come down to a game-day decision. On Wednesday, Bosa participated in practice for the first time since injuring his foot the week of the season opener. He was only a limited participant in that practice, though.


Nov 14 2018 - Joey Bosa
  DE Joey Bosa returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time this season as he rebounds from a foot injury. Head coach Anthony Lynn wouldn't rule out Bosa, a Pro Bowler, playing on Sunday against the Broncos. He also noted that the Chargers were going to be cautious with him and "ease" him back into playing. Bosa was limited in practice.


Nov 14 2018 - Joey Bosa
  DE Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers, who has not played in a game this season because of a bone bruise in his left foot, was back at practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. Head coach Anthony Lynn said Bosa is healthy enough to take part in individual drills and that the team will evaluate how to proceed moving forward. There was no indication that he might be able to play on Sunday at home against the Denver Broncos, but Bosa has said that as soon as he can practice, he will play in games. The 6-5, 280-pound Bosa, who the Chargers made the third pick of the 2016 draft as a two-time All-American out of Ohio State, sustained the foot injury in August and had not practiced since a few days before the season opener.
