  Chargers | No timetable for Ryan Mathews    Wed Oct 1, 05:34 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) said he's feeling good, but he has no timetable for when he might return. He wants to make sure he's fully healthy before returning to action. "I'm feeling good," Mathews said. "I'm taking it one day at a time, doing my best to get my full workouts in and do the best that I can to get my knee right."

Footballguys view: Mathews had a problem with injuries earlier in his career, but was much more durable last year. Donald Brown isn't lighting it up in his absence, so Mathews should have a very large role in the backfield when he does return.

  Chargers | Chargers lacking running game    Tue Sep 30, 04:55 PM

The San Diego Chargers ran just 20 times for 42 yards in Week 4 against the Jacksonville Jaguars for a measly 2.1 yards per carry. After four games this year, they are the second-worst running team in the league, and they host the New York Jets, the stingiest run defense, in Week 5. 'The big thing is the running game. It's nowhere where it needs to be,' head coach Mike McCoy said. 'There's no excuses about it. We're not running it well enough. We're not blocking well enough. Whatever we're running isn't working. We've got to figure out as coaches and players how to get it done.' RB Ryan Mathews (knee) is out indefinitely and RB Danny Woodhead (leg) is out for the season.

Footballguys view: The Chargers have a commitment to running the rock, but the production hasn't been there without Mathews. There's no timetable for Mathews return, but he could return in about a month. In the meantime, we'll see the Chargers lean on Brown as much as they can. This offense moves the ball with the passing game and Philip Rivers.

  Chargers | Chargers won't give up on run game    Mon Sep 29, 09:14 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown and RB Branden Oliver combined for 42 yards on 29 carries in Week 4, and although head coach Mike McCoy bashed the running game during a press conference Monday, Sept. 29, he also said that the team is committed to improving it. 'We're going to be forced to run it more down the road, and we're going to run the football,' McCoy said. 'So we'll be successful, we just have to do a better job doing it. You've got to have balance without a doubt.'

Footballguys view: Brown is dead last in the NFL with .44 yards before contact per rush. He is only gaining 1.56 yds after contact per rush (32nd) this year as well. The sooner Ryan Mathews can come back, the better this ground game will look.

  Chargers | Philip Rivers amasses records    Mon Sep 29, 05:38 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers posted a 130.0 passer rating courtesy of his 377 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions on 29 of 39 passing Sunday, Sept. 29. Rivers eclipsed the 120.0 barrier for the third consecutive game, which ties the longest stretch of his career. It also marked the third straight game he completed more than 72 percent of his passes, which is one shy of his personal best, and he eclipsed 300 yards for the 35th time in his career. Rivers set a new team record by throwing a touchdown pass in his 24th straight game.

Footballguys view: Rivers is on fire, and the Chargers could be the best team in the AFC. They're certainly contenders in the AFC, and they'll push the Broncos for the title in the AFC West. They have a gravy schedule coming up for a majority of the games left in 2014.

  Chargers | Shareece Wright injured    Mon Sep 29, 04:17 AM

San Diego Chargers CB Shareece Wright (knee) left the game Sunday, Sept. 28, against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a knee injury. The team believed Wright sprained his MCL and hoped no ACL damage was done. He will have an MRI Monday, Sept. 29.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green will play    Sun Sep 28, 02:29 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 4 game.

Footballguys view: Green might not be used much, and he isn't a guaranteed part of the game plan eve when he is healthy. The Chargers should rack up points against the Jaguars, so if you waited on Green, it could still pay off.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green's role expanding?    Sat Sep 27, 09:00 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (hamstring) has been targeted seven times this season, and five of those targets came in Week 3. Meanwhile, TE Antonio Gates saw just one target in Week 3 after being targeted a combined 17 times in the team's first two games.

Footballguys view: Perhaps it is, but this week with Green questionable and trending down in practice participation, it might be best to bench him.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green questionable    Fri Sep 26, 04:19 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 26, and is questionable for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Green's practice status has gone down as the week has gone on, which is never a good sign. Antonio Gates is looking like a strong TE1 against the creampuff Jaguars defense.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates practices fully    Thu Sep 25, 05:21 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday, Sept. 25.

Footballguys view: Gates should be good to go, though he and Ladarius Green can steal each other's looks. We have them both as a borderline TE1/TE2 play this week though sometimes Philip Rivers will lock on one and ignore the other, so there is risk.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green limited    Thu Sep 25, 05:19 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Footballguys view: Green and Gates - we never know which will be the big man in the offense though we keep hoping for more dual tight end sets. Green and Gates are both borderline TE1/TE2 plays this week though there is some risk as sometimes Philip Rivers focuses on just one.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen fully participates    Thu Sep 25, 05:18 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (groin) participated fully in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Footballguys view: Allen is having a bit of a sophomore slump and the groin is making it difficult for him to break out of it. He's on the border of WR2 and WR3 this week with some upside because Jacksonville just isn't playing well.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews doesn't practice    Thu Sep 25, 05:15 PM

The San Diego Chargers signed free-agent RB Shaun Draughn (Bears) to an undisclosed one-year deal Tuesday, Sept. 23, according to Draughn's agent.

Footballguys view: Draughn looked like he won the primary backup job behind Matt Forte (Bears) in training camp. Then Chicago decided to let him go early in the regular season. Draughn will serve as the third back for the Chargers behind Donald Brown and Branden Oliver.

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (leg) planned to be ready for full workouts in around 12 weeks but will take things slow since his season is over.

Footballguys view: A gut punch for the Chargers here. Losing a player who cannot be replaced easily will hurt the different looks the offense has with Woodhead.

  Chargers | Donald Brown can't find running room    Mon Sep 22, 02:21 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown rushed for seven yards on 15 carries in the second half against the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. Seven of Brown's carries went for zero yards or were negative plays.

Footballguys view: Brown got a hefty workload because Ryan Mathews missed the game, and Danny Woodhead got banged up against the Bills. Moving forward, Brown will continue to be the lead back for the Chargers. Woodhead may need season-ending surgery on his ankle, and Mathews isn't due back for another few weeks.

  Chargers | Antonio Gates held to one grab    Sun Sep 21, 09:39 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates (hamstring) was able to play in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was limited to just one reception for eight yards.

Footballguys view: The fantasy gods and Chargers offense are having fun with us. Just when it seemed like Gates was getting back to his elite production, he is a minimal part of the offense and third-year TE Ladarius Green plays a larger role.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen quiet in win    Sun Sep 21, 09:37 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (groin) was able to play in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he managed just two catches for 17 yards and he was targeted just the two times.

Footballguys view: Allen is being used almost exclusively on shallow crossers and other routes in the short and intermediate parts of the field. He is a low ceiling WR3/Flex, but one worth a long look against Jacksonville next week.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead done for season?    Sun Sep 21, 06:19 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle, leg) suffered a severe high ankle sprain and fractured fibula in the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills. A source said Sunday, Sept. 21, that season-ending surgery is likely.

Footballguys view: Woodhead was going to get increased opportunity with Ryan Mathews injury, but now Marion Grice is likely to get the call-up from the practice squad and some part of this backfield. Donald Brown will be the workhorse in a great matchup at Jacksonville this week.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) will go for further tests Sunday, Sept. 21, night in San Diego, according to head coach Mike McCoy.

Footballguys view: Woodhead may need surgery, and it certainly looks like a multi-week absence for the Chargers all-purpose back. Look for Marion Grice to get called up from the practice squad.
