Chargers' Nick Vannett: Will play Sunday
Vannett (back) is active Sunday against the Broncos.
Vannett has been nursing a back injury the last couple of weeks, but he'll continue to play through the injury again in Week 17. With Donald Parham (coach's decision) once again inactive, the Ohio State product should be the Chargers' No. 3 option at tight end.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Nick Vannett: Could play Week 17
Vannett (back) is listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.
The veteran tight end was able to play through his back issue in Week 16, and after two limited sessions to begin the Chargers' week of practice, he has a shot to suit up Sunday.

Chargers' Nick Vannett: Questionable for Saturday
Vannett (back) is listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the Bills.
Vannett now seems to be dealing with a back issue that's put him in jeopardy of missing Los Angeles' Week 16 contest, per Daniel Popper of The Athletic. The 30-year-old has not been targeted despite playing 72 offensive snaps this season, and if he were to miss Saturday's affair, Stone Smartt would likely see increased work as a reserve option....

Chargers' Nick Vannett: Ready for Sunday
Vannett (concussion) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Vannett was able to log full practice sessions both Thursday and Friday after limited work Wednesday, and it now seems as if he's had enough time to move past his concussion. The 30-year-old has appeared in only three games for Los Angeles this season, and he'll likely serve as the team's No. 4 tight end in Week 14.... See More ... See Less
Chargers' Nick Vannett: Limited at practice Wednesday
Vannett (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Vannett has been dealing with the aftermath of a concussion presumably suffered Week 11 against the Packers, and he's been held out of each of the Chargers' past two games. Though it's not clear if he's cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, the tight end's limited practice session Wednesday is a positive sign of progress after he logged a trio of DNPs during prep last week. Vannett is behind Gerald Everett, Donald Parham and possibly Stone Smartt in Los Angeles' tight end pecking order, and he hasn't logged more than 20 percent of the team's offensive snaps in any of the three games in which he's played thus far....

Chargers' Nick Vannett: Missing Week 12
Vannett (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens.
The veteran tight end was held out of practice all week with a concussion, so it's not a surprise that he'll be inactive for Week 12's contest. Vannett has appeared in three games with the Chargers since signing with the team's active roster in early November, playing 59 total snaps (34 offensive and 25 on special teams).... See More ...

Vannett (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.
Vannett popped up on Wednesday's injury report with a concussion and will now need to clear the concussion protocol before he's eligible to return to the field.
