Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Devin Funchess suffered a broken collarbone in his team's Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, a source told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Philip Rivers engineered an eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive on the opening possession of the extra period, and I covered that in my postgame story, if you'd like the details. Ekeler, the Chargers' lead back with Melvin Gordon holding out for a new contract, had 154 all-purpose yards on the day.
It is still unclear which running back will see a majority of snaps, as head coach Anthony Lynn said he will use the running backs as "a tandem". He showed speed through the hole.
"I can't focus on Melvin not being there". "In the past I still made plays on the field".
I started this weekly feature last season while I was in Jacksonville, and the Jaguars subscribers enjoyed it.
They had led the game throughout and were up 24-9 midway through the third quarter.
By game's end, Mack's 174 rushing yards were not only a career-best, but they were the 11th-most rushing yards in a single game in Colts franchise history, and the ninth-most since 1960.
Marlon Mack ran in for the two points that made it 24-24. The Colts may not have had Luck for the start of the year anyway as he only participated in three practices since April.
Ekeler carried four times for 19 of those yards and caught two passes for 18 yards.
"You experience every emotion". "It's a lot of things to build on". Just so we're clear. "I know for sure that won't be unnoticed". His one-yard scoring run ended the series. Last season, the Chargers ranked 22nd for fantasy points allowed for quarterbacks, so Brissett should be able to put up solid numbers in the season opener. Ekeler shed attempted tackles by Darius Leonard and Pierre Desir before motoring up the right sideline.
Brissett tied it at 7 with a 4-yard strike to T.Y. Hilton.
The Chargers played without their kicker, Michael Badgley, who was inactive because of a groin injury.
National Football League sources report that Gordon will miss not only the Chargers' opening game this afternoon against the Colts, but the first six to eight weeks of the 2019 season.
Future Hall of Famer Adam Vinatieri had what he called a "lousy" showing on Sunday that cost his Colts a win. Indianapolis won both meetings last season, including 33-17 in Week 17 which gave the Colts the final AFC playoff spot.
