The 2023 NFL season is just around the corner, and the Los Angeles Chargers find themselves with a few uncertainties. Amidst the anticipation, a critical question has been promptly answered by none other than the team’s offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore. He leaves no room for doubt – Austin Ekeler will remain the star player in the LA backfield this season.
There had been talks circulating about the workload of Chargers’ standout, Austin Ekeler, with concerns rising that he might see a reduced role due to the extensive demands placed upon him in the last couple of seasons. While we shouldn’t expect an exact replay of 2021 or 2022, one thing is for sure – Ekeler’s versatile performance won’t falter.
Stepping into his seventh season and at the age of 28, there’s no evident sign of Ekeler slowing down. The key lies in the Chargers maintaining their fitness and staying in good health throughout the season. As we gear up for the 2023 season, there’s a palpable excitement among the league and fervent fans alike. All eyes are set on Ekeler as he gears up to shine in the newly enhanced offense.
“Austin is the guy. Certainly, we feel really confident about Austin, but as the season goes on, we want to be able to utilize those guys to allow Austin to be Austin. We’ll sprinkle those guys in, and every game will be a little bit different the way those rotations role, but certainly Austin is number one.”
