Chargers head coach Mike McCoy said Monday that Woodhead (leg) looks the same as he did before suffering a fractured fibula in Week 3 last season, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

Now nearly nine months removed from the injury, Woodhead has been able to participate in the Chargers' offseason program. He figures to reprise his role as the team's top running back for passing downs, as first-round draft pick Melvin Gordon recorded just 22 receptions during his college career. Branden Oliver, who caught 36-of-45 targets last year, also figures to be in the mix for touches, possibly even challenging Woodhead for passing-down work. Gordon is expected to get most of the carries.

Woodhead, whose 2014 season ended in Week 3 when he suffered a broken fibula, indicates that he feels good as the start of the Chargers' offseason program approaches, the team's official site reports.

"I feel really, really good," said Woodhead, who was limited 15 carries for 38 yards and five catches for 34 yards in three games last season. "I really do. As far as the injury goes, that is something I'm not even thinking about." With Ryan Mathews having departed via free agency, a healthy Woodhead is now in line to reprise his change-of-pace duties in the Chargers' 2015 backfield, which also currently includes Branden Oliver and Donald Brown and figures to be bolstered in the upcoming NFL draft.

Woodhead, who suffered a broken fibula Sunday, is headed to IR, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

With Ryan Mathews still out, Donald Brown figures to be a busy back for the Chargers in the coming weeks, with Branden Oliver on hand in a backup role. In any case, the team is certainly going to add running back depth sooner rather than later, with Marion Grice a candidate to be promoted from the team's practice squad and/or a free agent addition possibly on tap.

Woodhead (ankle) suffered a severe high ankle sprain and a fractured fibula, meaning he'll likely require season-ending surgery, FOX Sports 1's Alex Marvez reports.

The diagnosis hasn't been confirmed by a Chargers beat reporter, but the San Diego Union Tribune suggests that the injury is likely serious. With Ryan Mathews (knee) already expected to miss the next few games due to a sprained MCL, Donald Brown now figures to see even more of the ball. Brown, who had already replaced Mathews as the early-down back, is positioned to assume Woodhead's role on passing downs. Undrafted rookie Branden Olivier is the only other running back on the roster, but Marion Grice will likely be signed from the practice squad.

Woodhead (ankle) is slated to undergo further testing on his ankle Sunday night, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Woodhead was carted off of the field Sunday against the Bills after sustaining an ankle injury on the Chargers' opening drive and upon his exit, the team's only healthy running backs for the rest of the day were Donald Brown and Branden Oliver. More on Woodhead's status as we know it, but the San Diego Union Tribune suggests that his injury could be fairly serious.
