The Los Angeles Chargers and Baltimore Ravens will meet in the AFC Wild Card Game after facing off against each other just two weeks ago when Baltimore won, 22-10, in Los Angeles as a 4-point underdog.

You can view daily practice participation along with estimated and official game statuses for all of these players on our Wild Card Round Injury Report.

Chargers Injuries

  • RB Melvin Gordon (ankle)
  • TE Hunter Henry (knee)

Notable players on IR: CB Trevor Williams (knee), DT Corey Liuget (quad), LB Denzel Perryman (knee), LB Kyzir White (knee), CB Jason Verrett (Achilles)

Adam Schefter had some fantastic information for Chargers nation to start the week.

Still, Gordon clearly isn’t operating at 100%, so expect Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson to see some snaps. Henry also isn’t expected to play a full allotment of snaps this week considering his last game action was December 16, 2017.

Ravens Injuries

  • LG Alex Lewis (shoulder)

Notable players on IR: RB Alex Collins (leg), DT Willie Henry (back), RB De’Lance Turner (hamstring)

The Ravens are probably the healthiest team in the entire playoffs. The return of their starting left guard would certainly help matters, but the offense was largely just fine without Lewis from Weeks 14-17. They’re otherwise expected to be all systems go against the Chargers.
