    Chargers RB Mathews practicing again, set to play in Week 11
    by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
    Chargers running back Ryan Mathews practiced again Wednesday and is all but set to play in Week 11 against Oakland. He has been out since Week 3 with a knee injury.

    Mathews is expected to return to the featured back spot. Backup Brandon Oliver has just 55 yards on his last 26 carries.

    Thumb injury to Chargers' Philip Rivers not believed to be serious
    by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
    Chargers coach Mike McCoy told reporters following a 37-0 defeat to Miami that the hand injury to quarterback Philip Rivers is not considered to be serious. McCoy indicated that Rivers would have stayed in the game if the score was close, per the NFL Network.

    Rivers completed only 12 of 23 pass attempts for 138 yards and three interceptions before leaving the game late in the third quarter. The Chargers are on a bye next week, which means Rivers will get a week of rest before San Diego faces Oakland in Week 11.

    Wow. Those Rivers stats remind me of "he who shall not be named."
    That's scary like Ebola (before midterm elections).

    Perfect timing for Ingram to have an impact in the 2nd half of the season.

    Rivers said busted play in 2nd half was a check with me, he forgot to verbalize to the rest of the team he changed it to go left. My bad.

    Eric Williams ‏@eric_d_williams 13h13 hours ago
    Philip Rivers said he got his knee rolled up on in the first half, and the wind knocked out of him late in the game. But he's fine.

    Ricky Henne ‏@ChargersRHenne 13h13 hours ago

    His injured knee heavily wrapped, Ryan Mathews limped out of the locker room. Wore a brace during the game.Interested to see how he recovers

    Mathews grimaced pretty good after getting dragged down from behind yesterday. I don't know if he re-aggravated the MCL, but the huge wrap indicates they're probably just trying to get ahead of swelling.

    The Bolts won and that is always a good thing. Hopefully all the guys coming back will grow better into playing shape with the reps the got yesterday.

    @UTgehlken: Mike McCoy on if Philip Rivers is healthy: "Yes. He's going to play this week."” >As if it was ever in doubt. McCoy is a comic.

    Eric Williams ‏@eric_d_williams 4h4 hours ago
    McCoy says he talked to Ryan Mathews this morning and that his knee feels fine after playing his first game in two months.

    Eric Williams ‏@eric_d_williams 5h5 hours ago
    Mike McCoy denies Philip Rivers has rib injury. Says he has not missed a snap in practice. Hasn't been treated for injury by training staff.

    Ricky Henne ‏@ChargersRHenne 5h5 hours ago

    League mandate.

    McCoy obviously hates it...says as little as he can get away with. For guys like him, the league rule is a farce.
    The question is, does McCoy's strategy help the team win, enough to counter the feeling many fans get,
    that they're being blown off? If he wins a Super Bowl, no one will give a damn about his reluctance to talk.
    Since Lombardi trophies don't look real likely, real soon, though...folks might just feel alienated for nothing...
