Chargers | Ryan Mathews misses practice (Mon Oct 20, 04:54 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 20. The Chargers did not hold a practice Monday, and this is an estimation.

Our View: We're not shocked. Mathews may not be back until after the Chargers Week 10 bye. The Chargers play on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos, and we should see Branden Oliver as the featured back.

Chargers | Week 7 Inactives (Sun Oct 19, 02:46 PM) - The San Diego Chargers have declared LB Jeremiah Attaochu, RB Donald Brown, WR Dontrelle Inman, DT Ricardo Mathews, RB Ryan Mathews, LB Manti Te'o, CB Jason Verrett inactive for Week 7.

Our View: Verrett made the game-saving interception last week against the Raiders, but the talented rookie corner is out for the divisional showdown with the Chiefs.

Chargers | Ryan Mathews will not play (Fri Oct 17, 03:48 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and has been ruled out for Week 7.

Our View: Mathews still has not started running yet and could well be out through the Chargers' Week 10 bye. Branden Oliver owners will get an RB1 for longer than they anticipated when they picked him up.

Chargers | Ryan Mathews misses practice again (Thu Oct 16, 04:22 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) missed practice again Thursday, Oct. 16.

Our View: Mathews might come back as the starter, but Branden Oliver has carved himself out a sizable role....even when Mathews is back. We may not see Mathews back for a couple more weeks...stay tuned.

Chargers | Ryan Mathews remains sidelined (Thu Oct 16, 12:51 AM) - Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) continues to rehab from a Sept. 14 injury to his right knee, but he will not play in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and it might not be Week 8 against the Denver Broncos in a game Thursday, Oct. 23.

Our View: That keeps Brandon Oliver as a high-end RB2 this week. We'll be curious to see how this plays out long term with Mathews in the final year of his contract. While he has been productive at times, he's also spent way too much time on the trainers table.
