Branden Oliver placed on IR

ESPN - [Full Article]

RB Branden Oliver suffered a turf toe injury against the Baltimore Ravens and hoped to get back on the field. However, the Chargers apparently needed the roster spot, placing him on the injured reserve list.

Oliver ends his second NFL season with 31 carries for 108 yards (3.5 yards per carry) and 13 catches for 112 yards. He also returned eight kickoffs for 197 yards (24.6 yards per return).

Fantasy Impact: 

WR Javontee Herndon was added from the practice squad. Oliver was getting more time as the result of Melvin Gordon's struggles. But given the state of the team, it may be time for the Chargers to just see what they have with Gordon at RB and hope he gets on track.
