Anthony Lynn told reporters on Thursday that once Melvin Gordon is up to speed, he will be the Los Angeles Chargers' starter moving forward.

"He was our starter for a reason," Lynn said. "I like the way Austin [Ekeler] and JJ [Justin Jackson] have been working. They've done an excellent job and proved they can play in this league. They will still have a major role in this offense, but as soon as Melvin's ready, he'll go back to being our No. 1 guy."

Gordon ended his 64-day holdout due to a contract impasse with the team this week.

Lynn said Gordon is unlikely to play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, although he could travel with the team.
