Melvin Gordon (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Titans.
Gordon was downgraded to questionable Saturday after his hamstring injury was more serious than initially thought. His status was tipped when Detrez Newsome was promoted from the practice squad. Hamstring injuries can linger, but Gordon has a bye next week to get healthy. Austin Ekeler will start for Gordon and is a plug-and-play RB2, with Justin Jackson backing him up.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Gordon's absence won’t have a significant impact on the Week 7 DFS landscape with the Chargers game's 9:30 AM London start time, but look for Austin Ekeler to become the workhorse back for the Chargers in Gordon’s absence. For those playing slates that include this game, Ekeler is a sure value in this spot as he appears in line for a heavy workload with both rushing and pass-catching involvement. Oct 21 - 8:02 AM
