LA Chargers running back Austin Ekeler will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks after suffering a grade two hamstring pull.

Initially the team thought Ekeler had a hyperextended knee, but an MRI taken today confirmed the details.

Backups Joshua Kelley and Justin Jackson will look to step up in Ekeler’s absence.

Both Kelley and Jackson will likely be high waiver wire adds for this week.
