Chargers-Broncos Injury Report

122618_DENinjuryreport_CMS

Austin Ekeler (neck) is off the injury report, meaning the Chargers will have their running back duo back in full force as he'll join Melvin Gordon against the Broncos.

"Austin looked good running around this week," Head Coach Anthony Lynn said. "He's got fresh legs now. He's missed a couple games (so I'm) looking forward to seeing him go home and play well."

Only one Charger, Sean Culkin, is on the report as he's listed as questionable for Sunday after sitting out the past three games with a back injury. The health of the team at this point in the season has Lynn extremely happy.

"We're as healthy as any team in the league right now, so I feel good about that," he said.

While the Bolts have healthy backs again, Denver will be without star rookie running back Phillip Lindsay. The Pro Bowler's season ends after suffering a wrist injury in Sunday's game against the Raiders. Lindsay, who was placed on Injured/Reserve Friday, has had an impressive rookie campaign, leading the team with 1,037 rushing yards on 192 carries (5.4 avg.). In his place, rookie Royce Freeman and veteran Devontae Booker will step up and share the workload.

Also placed on IR and out for the Broncos is WR Andre Holmes (ankle). The Broncos' receiving corps has been depleted as of late, with leading receiver Emmanuel Sanders out for the season with a torn Achilles.
