Chargers DE Joey Bosa (foot) is not expected to return until "next month."

Bosa will get the cast removed from his foot on Sunday then wear a walking boot around. He's reportedly not expected back until "sometime next month." Isaac Rochell will continue to start opposite Melvin Ingram until Bosa returns.

Antonio Gates (illness) is questionable for Week 3 against the Rams.

Travis Benjamin (foot) is also questionable for Sunday. Players rarely sit out because of an illness, so it would be surprising if Gates does not play. That said, he played only 11 snaps at full health in Week 2, so he'll make little impact for Los Angeles whether he's available or not. Virgil Green was notably in on 41-of-56 snaps.

Travis Benjamin (foot) is questionable for Week 3 against the Rams.

Benjamin actually tested his foot out prior to the Chargers' Week 2 matchup against the Bills but failed to play, indicating those tests did not go well. Mike Williams was in on 39-of-56 (70 percent) offensive snaps in his stead, hauling in the only receiving touchdown among the Chargers' wideouts. All of he, Keenan Allen, and Tyrell Williams will continue to be heavily involved if Benjamin is officially ruled out prior to kick-off.

Antonio Gates (illness) remained sidelined Thursday.

Gates played just 11-of-56 snaps in Week 2. It's fair to wonder if he makes it through the entire season on the Chargers' 53-man roster.
Sep 20 - 6:25 PM

Antonio Gates (illness) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Gates is feeling a little under the weather, but he should be fine for Sunday's showdown against the Rams. The 38-year-old has been a non-factor with just two catches for 16 yards through his first two games.
Sep 19 - 6:47 PM

Melvin Gordon (neck) is practicing in full for Week 3 against the Rams.

Gordon suffered the injury late in Sunday's win at Buffalo, though obviously it was nothing serious. Coming off last week's three-touchdown performance, Gordon belongs in the RB1 discussion for Week 3, even in a tough matchup against the 2-0 Rams.

Suspended Chargers DT Corey Liuget is suing his ex-trainer, blaming him for his PED ban.

Liuget is seeking $15 million in damages. He alleges his ex-trainer told him he was using a "high dose of an over-the-counter, anti-inflammatory" to treat Liuget's foot pain. Instead, according to Liuget, it was a banned substance. Liuget will return to the Bolts in Week 5.

Antonio Gates was held without a catch in Week 2 against Buffalo.

He had just one target. Gates has been an afterthought in the Chargers' offense after two catches in the season opener. He's droppable in fantasy leagues.
Sep 16 - 5:20 PM

Mike Williams caught two passes for 27 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against Buffalo.

Williams stayed involved on offense after playing 54 percent of snaps in the season opener. His touchdown came on an opening drive red-zone strike from Philip Rivers, but he faded over the second half. With Travis Benjamin dealing with a foot injury, Williams should continue to see his role grow.
Sep 16 - 5:14 PM

Tyrell Williams caught three passes for 48 yards in Week 2 against Buffalo.

It was a quiet game for Williams, though he improved on his eight yards for Week 1. Williams has been dealing with a groin injury, but looked fully healthy. The Chargers' deep threat remains off the fantasy radar.
Sep 16 - 5:11 PM

Keenan Allen caught 6-of-8 passes for 67 yards in the Chargers' Week 2 win over Buffalo.

Allen led the Chargers in receiving in a spread-it-out game from Philip Rivers. The Chargers got up big early and didn't need to pass much in the second half, so Allen didn't get a ton of chances to exploit Buffalo's secondary. Allen is averaging seven catches and 88 yards through two games. He gets a matchup with the Rams in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:49 PM

Austin Ekeler rushed 11 times for 77 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in Week 2 against Buffalo.

Ekeler was heavily involved for the second straight week. His touches were inflated with Melvin Gordon checking out with an injury in the fourth quarter, but it's becoming clear the Chargers have a role for Ekeler in their weekly gameplan. Ekeler is on the radar as a PPR FLEX for Week 3 against the Rams.
Sep 16 - 4:42 PM

Melvin Gordon rushed nine times for 28 yards and a touchdown and caught 6-of-7 passes for 38 yards and two touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 2 win over Buffalo.

Gordon did all of his damage in the first half. He went untouched on 20-yard run for his first score before beating the Bills for two red-zone TDs. Gordon was held in check on the ground, but his pass game usage continues to be encouraging. The Chargers rested Gordon most of the fourth quarter after picking up a minor injury. Gordon will remain a locked-in RB1 for Week 3 against the Rams.
Sep 16 - 4:36 PM

Philip Rivers completed 23-of-27 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns in the Chargers' Week 2 win over Buffalo.

It was a near-perfect game from Rivers, who didn't face any resistance from an injured Buffalo secondary. Rivers threw a touchdown to Mike Williams on the opening drive, with his other two coming on checkdowns to Melvin Gordon. This was another cupcake matchup for Rivers after shredding the Chiefs in the opener, but he's been locked in to start the year. The Chargers have a matchup with the Rams in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 4:26 PM

Travis Benjamin (foot) is out for Week 2 against Buffalo.

Benjamin didn't show enough in pregame warmups to play. It's a downgrade to the Chargers' deep pass game, but should create more targets for Mike Williams. The rest of the Chargers inactives are LB Emmanuel Ellerbee, C Cole Toner, RT Joe Barksdale, OG Forrest Lamp, DT T.Y. McGill, and DE Joey Bosa.
