    Chargers’ Ryan Mathews not expected to play vs. Titans

    Chargers running back Ryan Mathews has said since the day he broke his collarbone in the preseason that he was targeting a Week One return. But now it’s looking like his return will come in Week Three.

    Mathews is unlikely to play today in Tennessee, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Although Mathews was able to practice on a limited basis this week, it’s not surprising that he’ll need another week (at least) before he can play in a game.

    With Mathews out, the Chargers will again rely on Curtis Brinkley and Ronnie Brown to split the running back workload. That didn’t work out too well in Week One, when Brinkley carried 10 times for 12 yards and Brown carried five times for five yards.

    Then again, if Chris Johnson plays the way he played in Week One, even Brinkley and Brown combining for 1.1 yards a carry would give the Chargers the better running attack of the two teams on the field in Tennessee today.

    Not surprising and a smart move - don't push him now

    Hey guys if you don't have the Chargers insider on your tablet and have a UT San Diego subscription, check out their issue in honor of Junior Seau. It's very very powerful, and if you don't have the subscription it's worth the 99cents.
