Austin Ekeler says he has a bruised nerve in his neck that limits his mobility, putting his availability in serious question for Thursday. He dealt with a similar injury two weeks ago, but said this one is worse. “You can't let your pride get in the way of it,” he said. “It's football, yeah, but there's a lot of life after football, too.”

Anthony Lynn said Melvin Gordon's improved with two weeks off due to a sprained right knee. However, Chargers will not have a full practice this week to evaluate where he is at with the injury.

Michael Badgley said he's made kicks from as far as 70 yards practicing on his own. Badgley said he was in Coach Lynn's ear saying, ‘Let's do this,' after the Bengals were called for defensive off sides at the end of the first half. "I think the kick still would have been good from 64, but that's just me," Badgley said about his franchise-best, 59-yarder.
