Melvin Gordon Player Overview

Gordon’s left knee has been an issue in his first 2 NFL seasons: He tore his meniscus in Week 15 of his rookie year — going under the knife after being placed on IR. Last year, he sprained his left PCL. That injury sat him for 3 games. The Pro Bowler has averaged 256 touches per season in his young career. That’s not a ton of usage for a guy who has trouble staying on the field.
