Chargers place Austin Ekeler (hamstring) on Injured Reserve

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (hamstring) was placed on Injured Reserve on Friday.

What It Means:

Ekeler will be eligible to return for Week 8's matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While he is sidelined, expect Josh Kelley to handle most of the early down touches with Justin Jackson also mixing in.

Kelley's current projection for Week 5's matchup against the New Orleans Saints includes 12.8 carries for 52.3 yards and 2.1 receptions for 15.9 yards. Our models project Kelly to score 10.2 FanDuel points against numberFire's 15th ranked run defense.
