Freeman returned to take limited reps before Week 9's game so he was close to returning, but the team opted to sit him out through the Week 10 bye. Freeman's return likely hurts Booker's fantasy value more than Lindsay's at this point.

The Chargers are in fact promoting Michael Badgley from their practice squad to take over as their starting kicker.

Sturgis missed a field goal and two extra points this past week. When the Chargers when back to Sturgis, it was known he was on a short leash, so this move comes as no surprise.
As the Los Angeles Chargers get ready to make a second-half postseason push, they could get an unexpected boost from a player they were not counting on.
Chargers tight end Hunter Henry, who tore his ACL during OTAs this past May, has a chance to return to action next month, league sources tell ESPN.
Henry's return still would be a longshot, according to sources, but it is a shot -- and it is more than most were expecting when he initially suffered the knee injury it in a non-contact drill last spring, the story said. Henry's return would come at the end of the regular season, making him a risky play if he's activated in time for your fantasy playoffs. But given the struggle fantasy teams are having at TE this year, keep an eye on Henry. The story went on to say Henry is running and squatting, his strength is returning, he has not suffered any setbacks and his attitude is good because he feels so good, according to sources.
Carson went out with a hip injury after picking up 40 yards on eight carries in the first half.
Carson got his last carry with 7:49 to play in the second quarter and then retired to the bench. He watched the second half with his left leg heavily wrapped. Davis and Penny could see increased rolls in the run game if Carson's injury causes him to miss time.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 9. The full reps indicate that he’s good to go for Sunday.
Gordon Missed Week 7 and the Chargers had a Week 8 bye, giving the star back nearly three full weeks of rest leading into this weekend. After topping 22 PPR points in five of six games and scoring at least 16 in every outing this year, he is locked and loaded as a top-five running back against the Seahawks.

Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Gordon should be able to make his return this week, but this is certainly a situation to monitor. Austin Ekeler would move up if Gordon can’t play.

The hamstring issue that cause him to skip their only practice in London got worse on Saturday, however, and the team announced he’d been downgraded to questionable. The trend continued on Sunday morning and Gordon was left out of the lineup.

The story said the Bolts wanted to 'protect' Gordon so the hamstring doesn't become a lingering thing. The Chargers are on a bye this week after the London game. According to reports, the field was slippery as well which could have been a factor.

Fire up Austin Ekeler in Week 7 as a viable RB2 with RB1 upside in Week 7.
Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon, downgraded today due to a hamstring injury, “will most likely be a game-time decision,” per source with knowledge of the situation.
Melvin Gordon was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring injury, and the Chargers downgraded him to questionable Saturday. Putting his Week 7 status in further doubt, Los Angeles signed RB Detrez Newsome to the 53-man roster and waived LB Emmanuel Ellerbee.
Those with Melvin Gordon on their fantasy teams need to be aware that the Chargers kickoff at 9:30 AM eastern time in London. That's plenty of time to make adjustments if Gordon is ruled out tomorrow, but set an alarm so you do not forget to take Gordon out of your lineups if he's inactive. Austin Ekeler would vault into an RB1 if Gordon is out against the Titans.
