The word from Chargers coach Anthony Lynn on Tuesday morning wasn’t optimistic about the chances that running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler would be in the lineup against the Chiefs on Thursday.Ekeler remained out of practice Tuesday with a neck injury and a concussion Womens Sammy Watkins Jersey , but the news about Gordon was more positive. Gordon was a limited participant in practice for the Chargers and said that a decision on his status remains up in the air.“I’ve been grinding hard to get back and we’re still trying to decide what we’re going to do,” Gordon said, via ESPN.com. “I know Coach is trying to be careful and doesn’t want me to further hurt myself or things like that. So we’ll see where that goes, but I’m a lot stronger and more confident than I was last week.”If Gordon and Ekeler are both out, rookies Justin Jackson and Detrez Newsome would be the running backs. Quarterback Philip Rivers said he thinks they’re up to the task and he’ll work to “take a little bit off of them so they can play fast” on Thursday. Coach Jon Gruden knows the Oakland Raiders aren't nearly good enough to overcome a litany of mistakes if they want to be able to beat one of the top teams in the league like the Kansas City Chiefs.So when the running backs lose three fumbles, a key penalty wipes out a fourth-down conversion and a player jumps offside on a third-down stop that denied Oakland a chance to try to put together a game-winning drive http://www.thechiefsfootballauthentic.com/laurent-duvernay-tardif-jersey-authentic , the Raiders ended up on the short end of a 40-33 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.The loss made the Raiders (2-10) the first team to be officially eliminated from the playoffs, although Gruden is not quite ready to turn his focus to the draft and the future."We don't look ahead right now. We are looking at the Pittsburgh Steelers, that's all we are doing," Gruden said. "I'm really proud of our team. We fought back yesterday and made it 33-30 in the fourth quarter. We got them third-and-5, we get a stop and we jump offside. We gave Kansas City too many mulligans. We fumbled the ball to them three times. We had a fourth-and-1 called back, and we gave them first downs by jumping offside. We are not looking ahead to nothing except the Pittsburgh Steelers. I can assure you that Youth Travis Kelce Jersey , at least on our side of the building."Despite another loss that sent the Raiders to their 12th season of at least 10 losses in the past 16 years, Gruden was able to glean some positives, especially with the play from the offense.Oakland ran for 171 yards for its biggest day on the ground since Week 2 in 2017. The Raiders averaged 6.1 yards per carry but were hurt by the fumbles from Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington.Quarterback Derek Carr had one of his best games yet, throwing for 285 yards and three touchdowns, while extending his streak of games without an interception to seven in a row Youth Mitch Morse Jersey , tying Rich Gannon's franchise record.Carr even managed to stretch the field a bit, completing five passes that traveled at least 15 yards downfield, tied for his most in a single game in the past two seasons."I think the offensive line has gotten healthy. I think that helps," Gruden said. "I think we're healthier up front. Derek has played good football. I think that's a great combination. When you're healthy upfront and you've got some continuity with your linemen, you're able to pass-protect and block better. It has an effect on every phase of your offense. Derek has been hot. He's been playing well. He's really picking up the system well. He made some great audibles yesterday. He made some great throws. I'm excited about that."But it wasn't enough in part because of the fumbles, the holding penalty on center Rodney Hudson that wiped out a fourth-down conversion on the opening drive and the offside penalty against Fadol Brown that extended Kansas City's game-sealing touchdown drive.NOTES: Gruden explained why he used a challenge after Kansas City scored a TD late in the first half on a pass to Travis Kelce Youth Kareem Hunt Jersey , even though coaches aren't allowed to challenge scoring plays. "I knew exactly what I was doing, by the way. It wasn't a very sensible thing to do but I wanted to challenge Al Riveron in New York City to look at it because I have people in the press box telling me that's not a catch. Seeing plays overturned by somebody you can't even see, I thought with three timeouts and seven seconds left I'd use one of my timeouts by giving Al a little extra time to look at that play. I knew exactly what I was doing." ... Gruden said he wasn't sure if either OL Donald Penn (groin) or RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) will be able to return from IR and play down the stretch. ... Oakland claimed OL Denzelle Good off waivers from Indianapolis and waived Ian Silberman.
