Running back Austin Ekeler was added to the injury report with a hip issue and did not practice as a result.

The severity of the injury remains to be seen and it will be closely monitored leading up into the contest.

This comes a day after Ekeler commented on the state of the backfield, adding that someone needs to step up and establish themselves as the second back.

If Ekeler is limited or ruled out, Justin Jackson, Joshua Kelley and rookie Larry Rountree will all have more opportunities to make their cases.
