Chargers RB Gordon leaves with knee injury

Updated: 26-11-2018 06:35 IST

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon left during the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Arizona Cardinals with a right knee injury and did not return.

ESPN reported Gordon has an MCL injury that could put his availability in doubt for next week's game at the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"His knee is swollen right now," head coach Anthony Lynn told reporters after the game. "We don't know exactly what it is. We'll get a further evaluation tomorrow, and we'll go from there."

Gordon's leg was hit by Robert Nkemdiche after he got the ball on a reverse. He appeared to be in significant pain and was helped off the field before getting treatment on a table on the sideline. The team called Gordon questionable to return, but he did not, with the Chargers up several scores for the whole second half.

Gordon, who was questionable to play Sunday with a hamstring injury, finished with 10 carries for 61 yards and two touchdowns. He has 153 carries for 802 yards and nine scores this season, in addition to 44 catches for 453 yards and four TDs.

No. 2 running back Austin Ekeler continued his strong season with 15 touches for 103 total yards.
