RELAX! CALM DOWN! IT WILL ALL BE OKAY!
On Wednesday, the Chargers released their first injury report of the 2021 season following practice and while it was a refreshingly-short list, there was one name on there that certainly got the fan base into a tizzy.
Austin Ekeler was joined by three other players on Wendesday’s injury: right tackle Bryan Bulaga (full), safety Trey Marshall (DNP), and fullback Gabe Nabers (full). The news likely came as a surprise to many who missed the earlier reports in the day that Ekeler worked alone with trainers to the side of practice. It remains to be scene just how minor/severe the injury is but the team’s RB1 has two more days to show that he’s good to go ahead of Sunday’s opener.
