The Chargers were hit with injuries to key players near the beginning of the season. In recent weeks, they got back some of them like tackle Bryan Bulaga and guard Trai Turner. But they’ve still been without a few other notables like running back Austin Ekeler and cornerback Chris Harris, Jr.

Ekeler, who’s been running now, used social media to hint when he would be returning, pegging a Week 12 as his ideal return date. But despite his optimism, coach Anthony Lynn said that “it would be nice” but didn’t offer much more than that.

Meanwhile, Harris returning this upcoming weekend against the Bills is more realistic. Lynn said that the team would like to see him on the field on Sunday after suffering a foot injury in Week 3. Last week, Harris was designated to return from the injured reserve.

We will update the status on both players as this week goes on.
