Melvin Gordon is banged up

Melvin Gordon has been fighting through a bunch of leg injuries all year, but this week might be his toughest yet. On 11/25 against the Arizona Cardinals Melvin Gordon suffered a right MCL injury on a tackle by Arizona defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche. This caused Gordon to miss the next 3 weeks. Then, in a week 17 game Gordon appeared to suffer a mild right high ankle sprain. Last week, against the Ravens, Gordon appeared to already be slowed down with his injuries to his right leg and was wearing a right knee brace. Then, during the first quarter CJ Mosley made a tackle that appeared to cause a left MCL sprain. He returned to the game but was not the same Melvin Gordon we have seen earlier in the year. Melvin Gordon is active and will play against the Patriots but expect him to be limited and not nearly 100%. We will likely see more Austin Ekeler than usual.

My name is Eric Friedman and I'm originally from New York. I am a big New York sports fan including the Giants, Mets, Knicks, and Rangers. I played multiple sports in high school including baseball, basketball, and tennis. I went down south after high school and attended Wake Forest University, where I majored in health and exercise science and minored in Biology. I stayed for medical school and graduated from Wake Forest School of Medicine. Now, I am living in Baltimore where I work as an emergency medicine resident at the University of Maryland and Shock Trauma. I plan to go to sports medicine fellowship afterwards due to my love of sports and helping athletes get healthy and back on the field. I have worked at multiple sports medicine clinics and have published research about achilles tendon tears. I am on twitter @sportsinjuryMD
