  • Chargers' Junior Colson: Appendectomy causes NFI stint

    Head coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters Wednesday that Colson's placement on the active/non-football illness list is due to an appendectomy, Eric Smith of the Chargers' official site reports.

    The rookie linebacker out of Michigan was placed on Los Angeles' active/non-football illness list one week ago, and the timetable for his return is currently unknown. Once Colson recovers from his appendectomy, he's expected to serve as one of the Chargers' top inside linebackers.

  • Chargers' Gus Edwards: Being eased back in

    Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that Edwards (undisclosed) went through individual drills during Wednesday's practice, Kris Rhim of ESPN.com reports.

    Harbaugh added that Edwards underwent an unspecified offseason procedure, and as a result, the Chargers plan to give the running back a "longer runway" in terms of being a full participant in practice. As the coming season approaches, Daniel Popper of The Athletic has suggested that Edwards, when available, profiles as the team's lead back, with J.K. Dobbins, Kimani Vidal and Isaiah Spiller in the mix for complementary touches. Given that Edwards hasn't been involved as a pass catcher during his career, he'll make most of his fantasy impact in early-down and goal-line situations, a context that could lead to PPR utility for whomever emerges as the team's top change-of-pace option.

  • Chargers' J.K. Dobbins: Practicing in full pads

    Dobbins (Achilles) is participating in the first day of Chargers training camp Wednesday, Kris Rhim of ESPN.com reports.

    Dobbins will avoid having to begin training camp on the PUP list, confirming that he's truly healthy after having suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Baltimore's regular-season opener in 2023. Whether Dobbins' effectiveness has been compromised by the injury remains to be determined, as the torn Achilles represents the most recent setback among the gauntlet of major injuries he's dealt with in his NFL career, which also include a torn ACL, a torn LCL and severe hamstring strain. Still, Dobbins' presence on the field to begin camp is a major point in his favor, and as long as he hasn't lost too much explosiveness, he could be set for a significant role alongside former Ravens teammate Gus Edwards in a familiar rushing scheme led by offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

  • Chargers' Gus Edwards: Taking part in practice

    Edwards (undisclosed) was on the field Wednesday in the first day of training camp, Kris Rhim of ESPN.com reports.

    Edwards was seen going through drills in full pads Wednesday after having been limited to working out on the side during June minicamp. The veteran bruiser appears to be over whatever injury was pestering him during spring. He'll reunite in Los Angeles with offensive coordinator Greg Roman in what is expected to be a run-heavy offensive scheme under new Chargers head coach Jim Harbaugh. Edwards appears to be the favorite to serve as the Chargers' starting running back Week 1, and he should be in line to handle the majority of goal-line work. Former Ravens teammate J.K. Dobbins (Achilles), Kimani Vidal and Isaiah Spiller could all be in the mix for change-of-pace work, as Edwards has never been much of a factor on third downs or obvious passing situations.

  • Chargers' Isaiah Spiller: Competing for No. 3 RB role

    Spiller is slated to compete with rookie sixth-round pick Kimani Vidal for the No. 3 running back job behind Gus Edwards (undisclosed) and J.K. Dobbins (Achilles) during training camp, Alexander Insdorf of BoltBeat.com reports.

    Spiller, a 2022 fourth-round pick, is averaging just 2.5 YPC on 55 rush attempts across two seasons in the NFL, so he'll likely need to take a big step forward this offseason in order to earn a notable backfield role. Neither of Edwards nor Dobbins are a lock to stay healthy and play a full 17-game slate this season, though the former did accomplish that in 2023 with Baltimore, making the Chargers' third running back spot a position that could eventually hold fantasy value. Plus, new offensive coordinator Greg Roman figures to install a run-heavy scheme, and potentially one that could suit Spiller's elusiveness. However, Vidal boasts similar bulk and notably superior speed to Spiller.

  • Chargers' Junior Colson: Starting camp on NFI list

    The Chargers placed Colston on the active/non-football illness list Wednesday with an unspecified injury, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The Chargers haven't offered up a timeline for Colson's return to the field, but he can come off the NFI list at any time during training camp, once cleared to practice. The rookie third-round pick out of Michigan appears in prime position to compete for a starting role at linebacker, assuming he's not sidelined too long.
