Chargers activate Justin Jackson (knee) from injured reserve

The Los Angeles Chargers activated running back Justin Jackson (knee) from the injured reserve.

What It Means:

We haven't seen Jackson since he injured his knee back in Week 9, but he'll return to a Chargers backfield that has changed since that time. With Austin Ekeler finally healthy again, Jackson will likely compete with Kalen Ballage for change-of-pace touches as the team's RB2.

The team obviously trusts Jackson, but it's unclear how much work he'll get once he's officially back on the field. In the time since his injury, the team gave Ballage a heavy workload (over 20 touches in back-to-back weeks), but Jackson was far more efficient with his opportunities earlier this year than Ballage has been so far.
