San Diego Chargers running back Danny Woodhead suffered an ankle injury Sunday on the opening drive against the Buffalo Bills and will not return.
Woodhead appeared to roll his right ankle on a 1-yard carry on first and 10 from Buffalo’s 24-yard line with 11:50 to play in the opening quarter.
After being attended to by trainers, Woodhead had to be carted off of the field.
The Chargers were already thin at running back heading into the contest, with Ryan Mathews out for four to five weeks with an MCL knee sprain. San Diego has just two healthy running backs on the active roster in Donald Brown and rookie Branden Oliver.
