The Chargers removed running back Melvin Gordon from their injury report Friday, meaning he's set to play in Sunday's AFC Divisional Round matchup with the New England Patriots.

Gordon sprained his knee last weekend against the Baltimore Ravens and missed practice Wednesday but returned to action Thursday. The Pro Bowl running back may not be 100 percent, but he'll at least be on the field barring some unexpected development between now and Sunday.

That Hunter Henry also could play Sunday is a surprise. The veteran tight end missed the entire 2018 regular season due to a torn ACL (as Stephen A. Smith is now aware) but was added to L.A.'s active roster earlier this week.

The Patriots are even healthier than the Chargers, as they had perfect attendance at practice Friday and appear to have benefited from their Wild Card Round bye. The only player listed as questionable is Deatrich Wise Jr., who's been limited at practice all week because of an ankle injury.
