Chargers RB Joshua Kelley questionable to return vs. Broncos

The Chargers’ best pure runner in 2022 may be missing the rest of tonight’s game.

The team announced that Joshua Kelley is questionable to return with a knee injury suffered in the first quarter. Kelley was spotted heading into the blue tent and later working on a stationary bike on the sideline in the first quarter.

Kelley did not log an offensive touch before exiting the game, suggesting that his injury may have occurred either on special teams or while serving as a blocker for Justin Herbert.

Without Kelley available, Sony Michel will take the bulk of the carries behind Austin Ekeler. Ekeler has been effective thus far, however, scoring a touchdown midway through the second quarter.
