Anthony Lynn: Melvin Gordon Will Be \'No. 1 Guy\' When He\'s Ready 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Sep 27, 2019 1:11 pm

Anthony Lynn told reporters on Thursday that once Melvin Gordon is up to speed, he will be the Los Angeles Chargers\' starter moving forward.

\"He was our starter for a reason,\" Lynn said. \"I like the way Austin [Ekeler] and JJ [Justin Jackson] have been working. They\'ve done an excellent job and proved they can play in this league. They will still have a major role in this offense, but as soon as Melvin\'s ready, he\'ll go back to being our No. 1 guy.\"

Gordon ended his 64-day holdout due to a contract impasse with the team this week.

Lynn said Gordon is unlikely to play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, although he could travel with the team.
