Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said running back Melvin Gordon's left foot is in a boot after suffering an ankle injury late in the game against the New York Jets.

"He's seeing the doctors tomorrow [Tuesday], and we'll know more about Melvin as we get going here," Lynn said. "Ankles can be kind of tricky. We can keep him out all week, and he's had enough reps where he can go out and play. He knows what he's doing, and that's something that we'll look at. But he's another guy that's probably going to come down to the end of the week."

Fantasy Impact:

Lynn said Gordon could be a game-time decision on Sunday in the team's regular-season finale against the Oakland Raiders. The Chargers are in the Wild Card hunt so they could certainly use Gordon if he's healthy. His status will need to be monitored this week.
