Chargers RB Gordon showing versatility as a receiver

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) If the first two weeks are going to serve as a harbinger for the rest of the season, defensive coordinators are going to have another concern when figuring out how to defend Melvin Gordon.

The Los Angeles Chargers running back leads the team in receptions with 15 after the first two games. Gordon had six receptions for 38 yards in Sunday's 31-20 win at Buffalo with two of his three touchdowns coming on catches

It is the second time in the past two seasons that Gordon has had a two-game stretch of 15 receptions, but it appears as if he is being counted on more as a receiving option.
