Austin Ekeler Hopes To Play Week 4, Bye Week Could Change Plans

Sunday, September 24, 10:45 AM

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler (high-ankle sprain) is "hopeful" that he can return in Week 4, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. However, with a Week 5 bye, the Chargers could choose to hold him out until Week 6. He had 154 scrimmage yards and one touchdown in the season opener. Until Ekeler can return, Joshua Kelley will operate as the lead back while Isaiah Spiller and rookie Elijah Dotson also earn opportunities.

Elijah Mitchell Gets Involved In Easy Win Over Giants

Friday, September 22, 11:29 AM

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan made good on his promise to get running back Elijah Mitchell involved in the game plan after Mitchell didn't play at all in the Week 2 win over the Los Angeles Rams. On Thursday night in the 30-12 win over the New York Giants, Mitchell saw a season-high 11 carries for 42 yards and caught all three of his targets for two yards. It was nice to see the 25-year-old get more involved in a game that wasn't close at all late, but Mitchell's week-to-week workload could vary drastically based on game flow, and as long as bell-cow Christian McCaffrey is healthy and doing his thing, Mitchell isn't going to have standalone fantasy value. He could, however, see another solid workload in a Week 4 matchup with the lowly Arizona Cardinals.
