Sunday PM update: Ekeler is dealing with a hamstring injury and hyperextended knee. He will get an MRI on Monday and is expected to miss multiple weeks, according to Adam Schefter.

Post-game update: Head coach Anthony Lynn said after the game that he does not know how bad Ekeler’s injury is, “but it looked pretty bad.”

UPDATE: The Chargers have announced Ekeler is questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

Chargers top running back and fantasy star, Austin Ekeler, is down with an injury. He grabbed at his hamstring after a two-yard run and was carted into the locker room.

Ekeler’s injury does not look promising for his return today and there is likely concern that it could be a multi-game loss. If he can’t go, Joshua Kelley gets the bulk of the work and would be a priority waiver add.
