Antonio Gates - TEPosted 11/27/15 5:27pm ET
San Diego Chargers TEs Antonio Gates (hip) and Ladarius Green (ankle) and WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) are listed as probable for Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Gate will play in his fourth straight game, but with Green getting healthier, the targets will be diluted between the two tight ends. Floyd, meanwhile, looks like he'll suit up for the first time in three weeks and will resume his fantasy-boom-or-bust deep-threat role.
Antonio Gates - TEPosted 11/25/15 7:25pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hip) and WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) were limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.
Huddle Up: Gates is dealing with a hip issues and won't see much practice time this week but he'll be in the starting lineup against Jacksonville. Expect him to be Philip Rivers' favorite target with all the injuries San Diego has at receiver.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/20/15 3:45pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) didn't practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is out for Week 11.
Huddle Up: The Chargers' bye week wasn't quite enough for Floyd to recover from his Week 9 shoulder injury, and his absence will mean more looks for the rest of the Bolts' pass-catchers, most notably Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gates.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/19/15 9:20am ET
Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) said Wednesday, Nov. 18, that he is hopeful of returning this season despite suffering a torn labrum in his left shoulder. 'I plan on coming back,' Floyd said. 'Based on the experience of all the injuries I've had, you've got to know your body and how to rehab it and get back on track.'
Huddle Up: Reading between the lines it certainly doesn't sound like Floyd will be back this week. Philip Rivers would certainly appreciate a familiar face in the receiving corps at some point.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 11/18/15 5:27pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: Very concerning for Green's fantasy owners as the tight end still is unable to practice coming out of the team's bye week. The only hope is for a quick turnaround the next few days.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/18/15 5:27pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.
Huddle Up: There was some hope that the bye week might give Floyd time to heal enough to get back on the field, but he remains a serious question mark for now.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 11/11/15 12:30am ET
San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead is on pace for 926 receiving yards in 2015, which would set the single-season record for receiving yards by a San Diego running back.
Huddle Up: Woodhead leads all backs with 521 receiving yards and three TDs while ranking second with with 59 targets and 45 receptions. And with the Chargers' WRs and TEs banged up and rookie teammate Melvin Gordon still struggling, Woodhead will continue to very much involved in the S.D. passing game.
Danny Woodhead - RBPosted 11/10/15 12:45am ET
San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead ran six times for 33 yards in the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Nov. 9, and he added six receptions for a team-high 78 yards and a touchdown. He was targeted 10 times.
Huddle Up: Woodhead didn't start as usual, but he continues to outshine starter Melvin Gordon as the first-round pick produced only 31 rushing yards and 25 receiving yards on 14 total touches and is still looking for his first NFL TD. Woodhead, meanwhile, has had at least five receptions in four of his last five games and has had at least 60 yards in seven of nine outings this season.
Stevie Johnson - WRPosted 11/10/15 12:47am ET
San Diego Chargers WR Stevie Johnson posted a team-high seven catches for 68 yards in the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears on Monday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: With Keenan Allen out for the season and Malcom Floyd departing early Monday night with a shoulder injury, Johnson is now the Bolts' de facto No. 1 WR as long as he can avoid the rampant San Diego injury bug himself.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/10/15 3:31pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) could be done for the rest of the season after suffering an injury in Week 10 Monday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: The 34-year-old Floyd had previously announced this was going to be his final season, and the hard-hitting injury bug that's been ravaging the Chargers all season unfortunately looks as if it might've brought the campaign to an early end.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/10/15 8:12pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Mike McCoy. McCoy said Floyd has time to rehabilitate his shoulder injury with the upcoming bye week.
Huddle Up: Good news here as it sounds like Floyd has avoided a serious injury with the bye week also falling at the right time.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/10/15 11:44pm ET
Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd (shoulder) suffered a torn labrum in a Week 9 loss to the Chicago Bears. It's yet to be determined whether or not the injury will cause Floyd to miss the rest of the season. Floyd has already said this season will be his last.
Huddle Up: There are no medical degrees here at Huddle headquarters, but sadly this sounds like anything but a short-term injury and don't bank on having Floyd the remainder of the season.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 11/9/15 7:39pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) has been declared inactive for the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears on Monday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: As expected, Green will sit out after suffering an ankle injury early in last week's loss to the Ravens, and that, combined with WR Keenan Allen's absence, figures to mean a heavy dose of targets for veteran TE Antonio Gates in particular.
Malcom Floyd - WRPosted 11/9/15 9:46pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Malcom Floyd suffered a left-shoulder injury early in the second quarter of the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears on Monday, Nov. 9 and didn't return.
Huddle Up: Floyd came down hard diving for a deep pass down the sideline on his first target of the night, becoming the latest San Diego player to be bitten by the rampant injury bug. The Chargers lost leading WR Keenan Allen for the season to a lacerated kidney a week ago and are down to Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman as their primary receivers with Floyd out.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 11/7/15 3:25pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 9 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Green isn't expected to play Monday night. With Green and Keenan Allen out, Antonio Gates will dominate targets with Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd also on the WR3/Flex radar.
Antonio Gates - TEPosted 11/7/15 3:25pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) is considered probable for Week 9 versus the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Ladarius Green is out Monday night and with no Keenan Allen, Gates becomes a high-end TE1 for this week's game against the Bears.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 11/6/15 5:50pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: The Chargers have one more practice as they don't play until Monday night this week, but it's not looking good for Green, who reportedly was in a walking boot Thursday. Things are looking better for fellow S.D. TE Antonio Gates (knee) who was limited Friday for the second straight practice.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 11/5/15 6:39pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (ankle) missed practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: Green injured his ankle in the first quarter of Sunday's game in Baltimore and didn't return, leaving his Week 9 status in doubt. Still, it was only the Bolts' first practice of the week so Green and fellow ailing TE Antonio Gates will have an extra day to get healthier before Monday night's tilt against the Bears.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 11/4/15 6:40pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green will be dealing with an ankle injury this week. Green left in the first quarter of the Chargers' Week 8 game and did not return.
Huddle Up: If it's someone playing for the Chargers, they're no doubt battling a health issue, and that list includes fellow TE Antonio Gates (knee). If you own a S.D. tight end, you're going to need a daily practice update this week leading up to the Monday-night game against the Bears.
Stevie Johnson - WRPosted 11/3/15 12:59am ET
San Diego Chargers WR Stevie Johnson is likely to see more targets with WR Keenan Allen (kidney) out for 'some time' due to an injury to his kidney sustained in the Week 8 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Of the Bolts' other wideouts, Johnson has the skill-set most closely resembling Allen's, but he's also had problems staying healthy, missing Weeks 5 and 6 and playing with nagging injuries in parts of other contests. He's definitely worth a look, though, given the Bolts' pass-happy approach so far this season.
Eric Weddle - SPosted 11/3/15 10:10am ET
San Diego Chargers SS Eric Weddle is drawing trade interest from at least four teams, including the New York Giants. The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 4 p.m. ET.
Huddle Up: Usually the NFL trade deadline comes and goes without much fanfare, but after yesterday's Vernon Davis to the Broncos deal things could get interesting. The Giants need secondary help, and with Weddle in the last year of his contract it makes sense for the Chargers to try to get something for him now if they're not planning to bring him back.
Keenan Allen - WRPosted 11/3/15 2:51pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen is being placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a lacerated kidney, according to reports. Allen is expected to make a full recovery, but he will miss the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: The Chargers' brutal injury season now has claimed Philip Rivers' top offensive weapon in the rejuvenated Allen, who ranked as fantasy's sixth-best wideout so far with 96 points. Only Julio Jones (70) had more receptions than Allen, and look for the Bolts will replace him with a combo of Stevie Johnson and Dontrelle Inman. Malcom Floyd should also see a few more targets as should backup Jacoby Jones.
Branden Oliver - RBPosted 11/3/15 4:39pm ET
San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (toe) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: The M.A.S.H. drama continues in San Diego as Donald Brown not moves back into the picture as the Bolts' No. 3 back behind Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead.
Jacoby Jones - WRPosted 11/3/15 6:53pm ET
The San Diego Chargers released WR Jacoby Jones Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: It would've stood to reason that Jones was due for more opportunities with fellow wideout Keenan Allen being placed on injured reserve earlier in the day, but the Bolts decided instead to waive the disappointing wideout after Tuesday's trade deadline for financial considerations -- any team claiming him off waiver will have to pick up the balance of his $900K salary -- and will move on at the position. One possible landing spot for Jones is his former team in Baltimore, which also is in need of WR help with leading receiver Steve Smith Sr. going down with a season-ending Achilles tear Sunday.
Keenan Allen - WRPosted 11/2/15 4:49pm ET
San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (kidney) is dealing with a kidney injury, and there is no timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike McCoy.
Huddle Up: No timetable was given for Allen's return but it sounds like a multiple week injury. Stevie Johnson and Malcom Floyd will see an increased role with Allen out.
Branden Oliver - RBPosted 11/2/15 11:08pm ET
San Diego Chargers RB Branden Oliver (toe) is wearing a walking boot and is using crutches because of a turf toe injury. He is not sure if he will be able to play in the Week 9 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Nov. 9.
Huddle Up: The San Diego injury bug is now hitting the backfield. Oliver has averaged 10.6 touches over the last three games, and if he can't go next Monday night, it'll mean extra work for fellow backs Melvin Gordon and Danny Woodhead.
Melvin Gordon - RBPosted 10/30/15 4:20pm ET
San Diego Chargers RB Melvin Gordon (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 30, and is listed as probable for the Week 8 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: The first-round pick will be out there again Sunday, but his fantasy prospects remain shady at best as he's rushed for no more than 42 yards in any of his last four games and is still looking for his first NFL TD.
Antonio Gates - TEPosted 10/28/15 1:34am ET
San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) has foregone an MRI exam on the left medial collateral ligament sprain in his knee, and he's listening to his body on when he might be able to return to the field. His injury could keep him out several weeks, and he could undergo an MRI exam this week if he doesn't see any progress. 'I'm playing it by ear,' Gates said. 'I'll see how it feels on Wednesday, Thursday. If I still can't go, then I'm going to try to look at it to see what the root of the problem is, what really is going on. Right now, it's a feel thing. I know my body. (The athletic trainers) trust me to make the right choice.'
Huddle Up: Quick rebounds are tough for 35-year-old NFL bodies, and if Ladarius Green is still available in your league, swoop him up as he'll remain in a prominent role on the TE-friendly, pass-happy Chargers as long as Gates is out.
Antonio Gates - TEPosted 10/27/15 3:40pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (knee) said he hopes to participate in practice at some point this week after missing the last game because of a medial collateral ligament injury. Gates said he worked out Saturday, Oct. 24, but said his knee did not feel right.
Huddle Up: At 35 now, it's going to take Gates a little longer to get back from injuries, and if he winds up missing another week, Ladarius Green will be in line for another TE1 performance.
Ladarius Green - TEPosted 10/25/15 11:32pm ET
San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green posted four receptions for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Week 7 game against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Green has emerged as a solid fantasy option even when Antonio Gates is healthy. If Gates is out again next week, Green will be on the TE1 radar.
