The Los Angeles Chargers practiced without Austin Ekeler on Wednesday as the running back was sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Ekeler, 26, spent the session working on the side with trainers.

The Chargers face the Washington Football Team on the road on Sunday in their season opener.

Ekeler began last season as the Chargers No. 1 back, but was limited to 10 games after suffering hamstring and knee injuries in Week 4.

Ekeler finished the season with 530 rushing yards, 403 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

In four seasons, all with the Chargers, Ekeler has rushed for 1,901 yards and nine touchdowns and has 2,079 receiving yards and 16 scores.

The Chargers other running backs are Justin Jackson, Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree III.
