Chargers RB Melvin Gordon out for Week 14
The Los Angeles Chargers will be without running back Melvin Gordon for a second straight game.
Gordon did not practice on Friday and has missed practice all week as he recovers from a sprained knee suffered against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 12. He did not play in the team’s comeback win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Chargers have ruled him out for Week 14 against the Bengals.
The Chargers looked lost in the first half playing without Gordon against Pittsburgh. They hardly attempted any rushes and only had 2 rushing yards at halftime. They then decided to give the ball to Justin Jackson in the second half, and his 63 yards and a touchdown helped propel the team to victory.
Jackson and Austin Ekeler will likely split carries against Cincinnati as they did against Pittsburgh.
