Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hip, knee, out) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is out for Week 17. With Gordon and Kenneth Farrow out, Ronnie Hillman and Andre Williams figure to work in some sort of timeshare against the Chiefs.

Melvin Gordon plans on making the decision regarding his availability on Sunday a tough one for the San Diego Chargers.

"My expectation is to get out there, so that's what we're aiming for right now," Gordon said.

The Wisconsin product missed the past two games with a strained hip and sprained left knee. Gordon wore a helmet and bulky brace on his left knee on Tuesday as he worked with trainers on the field during the early portion of practice.

Fantasy Impact:

The Chargers are not required to release an injury report updating Gordon's status until Wednesday. Gordon is three yards shy of reaching 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his NFL career, and wants to reach the milestone badly. However, Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said the team will make sure Gordon is fully healthy before putting him out on the field and risking a more significant injury heading into the offseason.

Chargers RB Kenneth Farrow heads to IR

The Chargers have been using rookie Kenneth Farrow as Melvin Gordon's replacement. But now, Farrow is also going on Injured Reserve. He suffered a shoulder injury during San Diego's loss to the lowly Cleveland Browns on Saturday and his season is over.

Gordon is still considered day-to-day with his injury, but with the Chargers' season all but over, it doesn't make much sense to risk further injury in Week 17. If he sits, San Diego will incredibly be without its top five running backs for the regular season finale.

Ronnie Hillman -- who was cut by the Broncos just before the start of the season, signed with the Vikings in late September and stayed there for two months before being released and then catching on with San Diego -- is the team's only healthy running back on the active roster.

Fantasy Impact:

It doesn't seem likely Gordon will play. The story mentioned a possible Andre Williams return since he was on the team's practice squad at one point this season. Looks like Hillman could be in store for a nice workload in what is a tough matchup, however.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon day to day with hip strain, knee sprain

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.

Chargers sign RB Ronnie Hillman

Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 7:08pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

The San Diego Chargers added depth to their backfield by signing former Broncos and Vikings running back Ronnie Hillman.

Hillman, a former San Diego State Aztec, was released by the Vikings this week after playing in five games for them. The Chargers released WR Griff Whalen in a corresponding move.

Hillman has been in the league for five years (debuted in 2012), and crazy enough is still only 25 years old.

Fantasy Impact:

The Chargers don't have much depth behind Melvin Gordon who has seen a big workload this year but especially the last few weeks. The team talked about getting Kenneth Farrow more work but it hasn't happened. Hillman struggled in Minnesota but could provide the Chargers some depth at the position, and they should be pretty familiar with Hillman seeing him twice a year the last couple of seasons.

Vikings waive RB Ronnie Hillman

Monday, November 21, 2016, 2:08pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Ronnie Hillman wasn’t able to add anything to the worst rushing game in the league, so now he’s looking for work again.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Vikings waived the former Broncos running back.

Hillman had just 18 carries for 50 yards in five games with the Vikings, and hasn’t cracked the Jerick McKinnonMatt Asiata rotation.

Fantasy Impact:

The Vikings are last in the league at 70.0 rushing yards per game and 2.7 yards per carry and are without Adrian Peterson. Peterson could be back early next month.
