The Los Angeles Chargers appear to be getting healthy at the right time. Hunter Henry has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in New England, and star running back Melvin Gordon was removed from the injury report altogether.

QUESTIONABLE: Hunter Henry, Derek Watt, Brandon Facyson, Kyle Wilson

Henry, of course, hasn’t played a single down for the Chargers yet this season. He tore his ACL last spring and was placed on injured reserve. Recently, he was removed from the list and has been practicing in full this past week. So, it sure looks like he’ll be in the lineup when Philip Rivers and Co. battle the Patriots.
As for Gordon, he has suffered numerous minor knee injuries this year and got banged up during the team’s wild-card game against Baltimore. When healthy, however, he’s the team’s top scorer near the goal line and is one of the best running backs in the game today. In 12 games this season, he totaled 1,375 yards and 14 touchdowns from scrimmage.
