      Coach Anthony Lynn said Gordon (knee) was "full speed" at Tuesday's practice, Eric D. Williams of reports.

      Analysis: Whether that translates to full participation remains to be seen, but the description of Gordon lines up with Williams' own report from earlier Tuesday, when the running back was "moving well." Because Austin Ekeler (head/neck) remains in the concussion protocol, the Chargers backfield seems to be trending toward Gordon in the lead role, with Justin Jackson and Detrez Newsome available for the occasional touch Saturday against the Ravens.

      Boyle (concussion) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports.

      Analysis: Boyle remains subject to the league's concussion protocol after suffering a head injury during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. His status must improve throughout the week before potentially becoming available for Saturday's tilt against the Chargers, though the Ravens have several complementary options at tight end including Mark Andrews, Hayden Hurst and Maxx Williams.

      Powell was signed by the 49ers on Tuesday.

      Analysis: Powell has bounced around from the 49ers' active roster to the practice squad multiple times this season, but this most recent move comes on the heels of fellow defensive back Ahkello Witherspoon's (knee) transition to IR. Powell figures to provide depth at safety and on special teams.
