The Facts: The Chargers opened the week with only two players not participating in practice: Jatavis Brown (ankle) and Brandon Mebane (not injury related). Meanwhile, Ekeler, who returned last week from a neck injury, was limited in practice due to a groin injury.
Diehards Line: Brown was forced to leave Sunday’s game at the end of the first quarter, and on Monday, Head Coach Anthony Lynn announced the linebacker will be out for the remainder of the season. In addition, although Melvin Gordon exited the Broncos game after tweaking his ankle, he was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Lynn noted that they will watch Gordon throughout the week to see where he’s at, but that he is improving every day. Also full participants in practice were Jahleel Addae (shoulder), Dan Feeney (knee) and Sam Tevi (groin). ... Stay tuned. More on Ekeler after today's practice.
