Following a relatively light week of injuries, some of this week's biggest storylines regard the availability of players sidelined with multi-week issues. With the playoffs looming, teams with post-season hopes often push their guys to go in these situations, while non-contenders often send players to injured reserve. With that said, here are a few updates on this week's notable injuries.
After missing the past few weeks with an MCL issues, Adam Schefter reports that the Chargers tentatively expect Melvin Gordon to return this week. Gordon practiced in full on Tuesday and said himself that he is healthy enough to play. Gordon noted that he is not yet 100%, but he will still suit up by all accounts.
