Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is a full-go for Sunday's AFC wild-card game against the host Baltimore Ravens after going through three full practice sessions without a setback.

Gordon, who injured an ankle in last Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, was officially cleared on Friday and taken off the team's injury report.

Gordon rushed for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns in 12 games during the regular season. He also caught 50 passes for a career-high 490 yards, along with four scores.

Backup running back Austin Ekeler (groin) is listed as questionable after being a limited practice participant on Friday. Nose tackle Brandon Mebane (personal) is doubtful.

Linebacker Jatavis Brown was listed as out after suffering a season-ending ankle injury against the Broncos.

The Chargers are still pondering whether or not to activate tight end Hunter Henry, who missed the entire regular season after tearing the ACL in his right knee in May.

"We have an extra day to take a look at Hunter and make that decision so we're going to use it," Chargers coach Anthony Lynn told reporters.

Lynn said Henry would see limited action if he were to suit up.

"He would definitely be on a pitch count if he plays," Lynn said. "You can't put a player out there for an extended period of time that hasn't played since last December."

Baltimore, which recorded a 22-10 road win over the Chargers on Dec. 22, listed three players as questionable: guard/tackle Alex Lewis (shoulder), receiver Chris Moore (shoulder, hip) and cornerback Tavon Young (groin).

Moore did not practice on Friday. Young was limited and Lewis was a full participant.
