On WDAE's afternoon show, ESPN's Jenna Laine said that "I think it's quite possible we don't see [Jackson] the rest of the season."

Melvin Gordon could return for Week 14 photo
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Los Angeles Chargers are optimistic that RB Melvin Gordon (knee) is truly week-to-week and that "it won't be long now," before he's back on the field. Gordon has already been ruled out for Week 13 and is questionable for Week 14's home game against Cincinnati. Week 15, a crucial Thursday night matchup with the Chiefs, is a more likely return date for Gordon. According to Schefter, "They want him to rest for now and, in the words of another source, "at least be ready for the K.C. game."
