According to Kris Rhim of ESPN, Los Angeles Chargers RB Austin Ekeler (ankle) was not spotted at practice on Friday, marking his second consecutive full week of practice missed. (Kris Rhim on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

It seems highly unlikely that Ekeler will be ready to go for Week 3, marking his second consecutive game missed. Joshua Kelley again should be in line to see the majority of the work out of the backfield, with RB Elijah Dotson working as the RB2. Kelley has a more favorable matchup in Week 3 and should be viewed as an RB2/FLEX play.
