LOS ANGELES CHARGERS HEAD COACH ANTHONY LYNN
On RB Melvin Gordon III:
"Melvin will go. He had a good week of practice. He looks good."
On Gordon's workload on Saturday:
"He's been out a couple of weeks. He won't be on a pitch count, but we will be watching him closely because we have more than capable guys that can go in there and get the job done."
On WR Keenan Allen:
"Keenan Allen will be a game-time decision right now."
On what he needs to see from Allen to have him active on Saturday:
"I need to see him run full speed and make cuts. He did some things in practice this week. Before I put a player in the game, I like to see them run full speed."
On the team's success on the road:
"I think our guys just eliminate distractions and they play well. I think, sometimes, that road crowds can galvanize a team. They're a tough and resilient group. I think it just fits our style."
On the crowds at StubHub Center:
"Playing on the road is night and day from playing at [StubHub]. It's a lot louder. You're truly in hostile territory [on the road]. The way our attitude about everything — the relocation and the whole nine yards — if you approach things like that with the right attitude, it can make you better. I feel like our guys are doing that."
On if there are similarities between this team and team's he has coached in the past that were successful on the road:
"Yeah, I was on some good Denver teams that played well on the road. That was more of a veteran team. Guys were more professional — guys are just older and more mature. They handled the road things really well. This group, is a mixture of young guys and older guys. They have this unique skill set to just eliminate distractions and stay focused."
On if RB Austin Ekeler has a chance to play on Saturday:
"Ekeler will be out. He's going to be out. We're going to give him a little more time."
On if Ekeler has cleared concussion protocol:
"No, he's still in the concussion protocol, but he's not practicing because of his shoulder. When he gets the strength back in his shoulder, he will be back on the practice field."
