San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) will not be able to play in Week 6.

Week 13: at Baltimore Ravens

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Ryan Mathews had his best game vs. Saint Louis, with 12/105/1 rushing and 2/8/0 receiving to his credit - Branden Oliver chipped in with 6/17/0 rushing and 4/23/0 receiving during the contest. It appears that Mathews is finally rounding into 'game shape' and he may be a fantasy force during the stretch run into the playoffs. We'll see if he can build off the solid numbers here in Week 13. The Ravens' rush D kept New Orleans out of the end zone, but they allowed 21/126/0 rushing to Mark Ingram and company. Two games ago, Tennessee had 22/67/0 rushing to their credit - to date the Ravens have given up just six rushing scores over 11 games played. They rank fifth in the NFL averaging 88.3 rushing yards allowed per game. Mathews has a tough road trip ahead.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 11 vs OAK (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

The Chargers picked a curious time to get Brown his first rushing attempt. After 58 minutes of very minimal work in the passing game, the Chargers had a 3rd and 5 that, if converted, would have ended the game. Instead, Brown was stuffed for no gain on a very critical play.

2014 Week 12 vs STL (1 / 7 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Brown had a limited workload and is the clear third string back behind Mathews and Oliver, but he did pick up a nice catch over the middle for first down yardage during the two minute offense to help get the Chargers into field goal range. In other words, his workload isn't limited to mop-up duty.

Chargers | Bolts managing Ryan Mathews' touches (Mon Nov 24, 07:32 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee, shoulder) has 175 rushing yards in two games since returning from a knee injury, but he's carried the ball an average of 14 times in those two games, with just four carries in the fourth quarter and two in the red zone. Head coach Mike McCoy said that team is monitoring Mathews' touches as he makes his way back from injury. RBs Branden Oliver and Donald Brown are still being sprinkled in. Mathews suffered a shoulder injury in the second half but returned to the game, and the injury isn't considered serious.

Our View: It's wise for the team to treat Mathews this way. He's a talented back, but Mathews has been oft-injured during his pro career. As he gets healthier, his role could increase.
