Per Daniel Popper on Twitter, Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler was not participating in team practice yesterday, and his nagging hamstring injury has him questionable to play Week 1 against the Washington Football Team. (Daniel Popper)

Betting Impact:

Washington is -1.5 point home favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. The Chargers opened as one-point road favorites earlier in the week and stayed there for awhile, but the line jumped the fence mid-week to Washington -1. This is the largest number the Football Team has been favored by all week, and the movement times up perfectly with Ekeler's absence from practice which first surfaced on Wednesday. If Ekeler is ultimately cleared to play, it would be interesting if the spread comes back close to a pick'em.
