"If we would have played that game on Sunday, he probably would have played," Lynn said, via ESPN's Eric Williams.
Lynn's optimism strongly suggests we should prepare for Gordon's return. The Pro Bowl running back missed the past three games due to a knee injury suffered in Week 12.
Austin Ekeler remains in concussion protocol after missing last week's win, according to Lynn. The team will continue to evaluate the running back.
In other Chargers injury news, tight end Hunter Henry, lost for what was expected to be the entire 2018 season to an ACL tear suffered in May, returned to practice with the team Monday but remains on the physically unable to perform list. Henry has a 21-day window to either be activated or miss the remainder of the season, which will include a playoff appearance for L.A.
Henry said he isn't surprised that he made it back to the practice field before the end of the season.
"I had (being back) in my mind, and tried to push for that since the get-go," Henry told the Chargers' official website. "I worked as hard as I could, and there's a lot of work still to do to get back out there. ... It'll be different but good to get back in the flow of things. I'm geared up and ready to go, but it's a long journey, and it's cool to have an opportunity like this."
