SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers got a scare Wednesday when running back Danny Woodhead went down with a sprained left ankle during minicamp and stayed down for several minutes.

Several teammates circled around Woodhead, who eventually got up and walked off the field on his own power.

Coach Mike McCoy said Woodhead was coming across on a screen and got rolled up on by a defensive lineman.

Woodhead missed most of the 2014 season with a broken leg.

McCoy said he was so pleased with the first two days of minicamp and the offseason in general that he canceled Thursday's practice.

Offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said running back Melvin Gordon finished the offseason program strong. Gordon had microfracture surgery on his left knee in January.
