Chargers HC Mike McCoy said RB Melvin Gordon has hip strain and knee sprain. "He'll be day to day, and we'll take it from there."

Related players: Kenneth Farrow, Ronnie Hillman

Fantasy Impact:

Kenneth Farrow and Ronnie Hillman could split time, according to story by Gehklen. Farrow apparently struggle with pass protection, so the team could lean on Hillman in passing situations. Without having much to play for, it would seem unlikely the Bolts rush Gordon along to play this week.

Relief in locker room surrounding Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hip). "He's OK," source said.

Fantasy Impact:

Good news for the long-term prognosis for Gordon. Keep in mind, with three games left and the Bolts pretty much out of a playoff berth, it's possible Gordon is shut down for the year. Gehlken's tweet added an MRI Monday will determine just that.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hip) has been downgraded to out.

Related players: Kenneth Farrow

Fantasy Impact:

Kenneth Farrow takes over for the rest of the game. It's been a while, but in the offseason we reported from those who follow the team nothing but good things to say about Farrow. He'll be in store for a big workload should Gordon have to miss any time.

Bucs WR Cecil Shorts suffers massive knee injury

Monday, December 5, 2016, 4:11pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Veteran wideout Cecil Shorts blew out his knee in yesterday’s win over the Chargers. According to Britt McHenry of ESPN, Shorts suffered a torn ACL, MCL, PCL and dislocated his kneecap.

That effectively leaves skin as all that was holding his lower leg to his upper leg, and would obviously mean Shorts is out for the rest of the season.

Bucs RB Doug Martin 'bent back' but says he's fine

Monday, December 5, 2016, 9:33am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Buccaneers closed out Sunday’s 28-21 win over the Chargers with running back Doug Martin on the bench, but it doesn’t look like the veteran is going to be out for another extended period.

He said after the game, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, that he was “bent back” before heading for the sideline and that he expects to be fine.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bucs got Jacquizz Rodgers back this week. Martin missed six games with a hamstring injury this year which allowed Rodgers to make a fantasy impact. In Week 13, Rodgers made a big catch on the game-winning touchdown drive and then ran the clock out on the next Tampa possession. Rodgers may be worth owning for Martin owners.
