The Chargers are not optimistic that running backs Melvin Gordon (knee) and Austin Ekeler (neck, concussion) will be ready for Thursday's huge AFC West matchup at Kansas City, HC Anthony Lynn told me.
The short week comes at a tough time for the Chargers. Jackson needs to be added if he happens to still be on your wire. He'll get a nice matchup and a potential big workload against the Chiefs, which could end up as a high scoring game. Newsome will likely get some work as well.
