Well this is just awful. Halfway through the first quarter Melvin Gordon has been carted off the field with an injury.
Gordon was attempting to recover a fumble after Philip Rivers got stripped and was tackled from behind before he even touched the ball. His left foot was planted and as his hips went down and forward his leg stayed in place. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a hip dislocation or something close to that.
This is an absolute shame. MG3 had completely turned around from his rookie season. He was running with power, he was making better decisions, and he was finding the endzone. A lot.
Even more heart breaking, Gordon was just 3 yards short of breaking the 1,000 yard mark for the season. Hopefully he can make it back before the end of the season. Just an absolute shame.
Next man up Kenneth Farrow, good luck rookie.
