The Chargers hope to re-sign Woodhead this offseason, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Woodhead played in just two games this season before suffering a torn ACL. Although that severely restricted his output going into unrestricted free agency, the early timing of the injury has Woodhead expected to be fully healthy for offseason workouts. Whether those take place with the Chargers or not remains to be seen, but after workhorse second-year tailback Melvin Gordon ended this season banged up himself, having Woodhead back around would ideally enable Los Angeles to keep both back fresh in 2017.

Woodhead is "six weeks ahead of schedule" in his recovery from an ACL tear in his right knee, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

As he approaches the four-month mark in his rehab, Woodhead has already progressed to cutting, which bodes well for his personal goal of full health by the start of the offseason program. Where he'll be situated in a few months remains to be seen, though, due to his upcoming unrestricted free agency. If the Chargers keep him around as a complement to workhorse RB Melvin Gordon, Woodhead will help lead the charge in their relocation to Los Angeles.

Woodhead (knee) expects to be fully healthy for the start of offseason programs in April, ESPN's Eric Williams reports. "I feel really good, and we'll see as things get closer what happens. But as far as my injury, I'm not concerned with my injury at all."

EDGE Analysis

While Woodhead appears to be progressing along well from his torn ACL which he suffered in Week 2, the 33-year-old isn't a lock to return to the Chargers, as the diminutive running back will hit unrestricted free agency this offseason. The emergence of Melvin Gordon likely doesn't help Woodhead's chances at returning, but given the veteran's chemistry with Philip Rivers, it would be a surprise to see him not return for his fifth season with the Chargers.

Woodhead (knee) has progressed to performing squats and running , Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reports.

EDGE Analysis

Just two and a half months removed from tearing the ACL in his right knee, Woodhead has yet to see the light at the end of the tunnel in his rehab. Rather, Monday's development is a stepping stone toward potentially participating in the offseason program. A more realistic timetable is likely a return for training camp, but ultimately his recovery will be monitored with a watchful eye.

The Chargers announced Monday that Danny Woodhead suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was hope that Woodhead had suffered a mere MCL sprain, which would have allowed him to return at some point this season. However, further testing revealed the precise diagnosis and its season-ending nature. Losing their second premier receiver in as many weeks, Philip Rivers will likely trust even more in Antonio Gates, Travis Benjamin, and Tyrell Williams in the passing attack.

Woodhead is slated for additional tests on his right knee Monday, at which point the Chargers will clarify the running back's status.

EDGE Analysis

Once the Chargers' medical staff does its due diligence, an accompanying prognosis should be clarified. At the moment, the team hopes that Woodhead merely suffered a sprained MCL, according to Alex Marvez of Sports Illustrated, which would likely ensure a return at some point this season.

Woodhead (right knee) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

After he was tackled in awkward fashion at the conclusion of a reception in the first quarter, Woodhead was unable to walk off the field under his own power and promptly took a cart to the locker room. An official diagnosis has yet to emerge, but the Chargers will seemingly lose another top pass-catcher for an extended period.

Woodhead is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Jaguars due to a right knee injury, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The hits keep coming in San Diego. Already down two wide receivers in Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson with serious knee injuries, the Chargers may be without their top pass-catcher out of the backfield. Upon an awkward tackle in the first quarter, Woodhead required assistance from the training staff to walk off the field and was carted to the locker room. Although the severity of the injury will be known in due time, the running back corps has been whittled down to three active bodies in Melvin Gordon, Kenneth Farrow, and Derek Watt.

Woodhead rushed for 89 yards on 16 carries and added five catches for 31 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

The 89 yards rushing were the most by a Charger since Donald Brown's 90 yards in Week 7 of last season. While his exploits as a runner might be his strong suit of his Week 1, his receiving ability will likely be his primary contribution to the team in the remaining 15 games. Woodhead's 80 receptions led the team last season as they spent half the year without star receiver Keenan Allen. With Allen potentially gone for the remainder of 2016, expect Woodhead to be a top candidate to lead the team in receptions again.

Woodhead finished Sunday's preseason loss to the Vikings with three carries for zero yards, and one catch for 25 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Woodhead was used sparingly throughout the first half as the first-string Chargers offense played into the second quarter. While the 32-year-old didn't make much noise on the ground, his 25 yard catch-and-run was the longest catch by any Charger. With Branden Oliver (Achilles) likely done for an extended period of time, look for Woodhead to see even more time in the backfield during the regular season.
