WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Detrez Newsome | Chargers RB

The Chargers are waiving Detrez Newsome.

ESPN's Eric Williams says Newsome is expected to be on the practice squad if he clears waivers, so his status should be known sometime tomorrow.

Detrez Newsome handles eight touches in win over the Chiefs.

Newsome rushed six times for 34 yards and caught two passes for 19 yards. Justin Jackson operated as the clear lead back, but Thursday night's backup did well in a change-of-pace role. Still, Newsome can stay on the waiver wire as Melvin Gordon (knee) nears a return.

Detrez Newsome rushed four times for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Newsome hadn't received a carry since Week 2, but he had a role in a blowout with Melvin Gordon (knee) leaving the game. The undrafted rookie should now operate as the No. 3 back behind Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson, but it's unlikely to lead to fantasy value down the stretch.
