Chargers RB Melvin Gordon returns to the game

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The offense has been ineffective thus far, but Melvin Gordon is back on the field for the Los Angeles Chargers. His first play back on the field was a run for a 2-yard loss, but it was encouraging to see him back in action and able to take a hit. The offense runs through Gordon and having him back is huge for Ken Whisenhunt’s unit.

The offense is now moving thanks to a big reception by Keenan Allen on 3rd down, and the return of Gordon will allow them to stay balanced as they try to figure out the Ravens’ defense.

We will have to monitor Gordon to see if he is back at 100% but his first two runs certainly looked like he was healthy enough to be back in the game.
