The Chargers could be without their best running back Sunday.
Melvin Gordon has been downgraded to questionable, and is nursing a hamstring injury that will make him a game-time decision, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Los Angeles traveled across the pond this week to face Tennessee in London.
Chargers’ RB Melvin Gordon, downgraded today due to a hamstring injury, “will most likely be a game-time decision,” per source with knowledge of the situation. Chargers kick off at 930 am ET vs Titans in London.

The Pro Bowl player was not on the injury report until the Chargers’ practice Friday in London. He was listed as limited.
“I think it was just sore,” head coach Anthony Lynn said after practice, via ESPN. “We had a long plane ride. He probably didn’t drink enough water.
“We were just being extra cautious with him, and we just held him out today (Friday). It would have been the third practice that he has been on field turf. With his knees and ankles, I don’t think that’s good for him at all, so we just held him out.”
Gordon has not missed a game this season, and is third in the NFL with 466 rushing yards.
