Booker left Sunday’s win over the San Diego Chargers for a series after he landed hard on his left shoulder lunging for a Trevor Siemian pass in the first quarter. As the ball fell incomplete, Booker hit the ground and Chargers cornerback Brandon Flowers landed on top of him on a third-and-7 that ended the Broncos’ first possession of the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Booker was out of the lineup on the Broncos’ next possession and then re-entered the game the next time they got the ball -- and played the rest of the way. However, he got treatment following the game and had some additional exams Monday morning. It is possible Booker, who was the Broncos' fourth-round pick in this past April's draft, could be limited some in practice this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Hunter Henry reported concussion-like symptoms this week but practiced and said he would play against the Broncos and sure enough he's in the lineup.

Fantasy Impact:

Chargers TE Hunter Henry plans to play

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Chargers tight end Hunter Henry reported concussion-like symptoms this week, but he has been practicing and expects to play on Sunday against the Broncos.

Although Henry is officially listed as questionable and hasn’t been given final clearance in the league’s concussion protocol, he told reporters he’s playing.

Fantasy Impact:

Henry has supplanted Antonio Gates as the No. 1 tight end in San Diego. Henry has 20 catches for 326 yards and three touchdowns this season. Obviously we can't take a player's word he's going to play so monitor his situation heading into games this week.

Bolts Beat: Team has to manage RB Melvin Gordon's workload

Tuesday, October 25, 2016, 9:27am

ESPN - [Full Article]

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Melvin Gordon has 158 touches in seven games for the San Diego Chargers this season. He totaled 217 touches all of last season.

With 461 yards on 138 carries, Gordon’s on pace to carry the ball 315 times this season, which would put him in the top-10 in team history for the Chargers.

Of course, the franchise’s all-time leading rusher, future Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson carried the ball at least 315 times in six of his first seven seasons with San Diego, including a franchise-high 372 times in 2002.

Fantasy Impact:

With Danny Woodhead and Branden Oliver done for the year, Gordon’s embraced the role of workhorse back for the Chargers. With 461 yards on 138 carries, Melvin Gordon's on pace to carry the ball 315 times this season. However, Gordon had microfracture knee surgery in January, and at some point, the Chargers have to take a long-term view of Gordon’s workload over a 16-game season. Backup running back Kenneth Farrow has just 31 yards on eight carries but RB coach Ollie Wilson was quoted as saying Farrow needs to play a little more to save Gordon.
