by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (ankle) out Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews didn't practice Wednesday due to a right ankle injury, U-T San Diego reports.

Mathews was limited to just two carries in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Patriots after suffering a leg injury late in the first half. His availability for Week 15 will be determined by how the ankle fares over the next few days.

"There's no doubt we're better when (Mathews is) out there," quarterback Philip Rivers said Wednesday. "At the same time, we have confidence in Donald, Branden (Oliver) and Ronnie (Brown) when they're in there as well. But when he's rolling and we're balanced, that's when we're at our best."

Mathews has played just six games this seaosn, gaining 330 yards on 74 carries and scoring three touchdowns.


Chargers' Ryan Mathews, Ladarius Green not seen at practice


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Running back Ryan Mathews and tight end Ladarius Green were not seen during the open portion of Chargers' practice Wednesday. 

Mathews is dealing with a leg injury after being tackled on play where the defender was called for tripping. He came back but quickly came back out with what the team called an ankle injury. 

Green is dealing with a concussion when he was hit hard during Sunday's game against the Patriots. 


Chargers RB Ryan Mathews gains 48 yards vs. Patriots


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews rushed for 44 yards on 11 carries and caught one reception for four yards in his team's 23-14 loss to the Patriots in Week 14.

Mathews appeared to suffer a leg injury late in the first half on a play in which the defender that tackled him was called for tripping. He missed the team's first series of the second half but returned to the game before an injury was announced by the Chargers. Mathews has been given just 11 or 12 carries in five of his six games this season, limiting his overall upside. He'll look for a better showing in Week 15 against the Broncos.


Ryan Mathews producing with limited touches


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews found the end zone yet again in Week 13, as he continues to produce solidly since his return from a knee injury.

Mathews finished the game with just 38 yards, but received the goal-line work necessary for a solid Fantasy showing Sunday. The 38 yards are a disappointing total, however, especially coming on the heels of a 105-yard showing on just 12 carries in Week 12, during which he also scored.

The Chargers appear willing to limit Mathews' carries given his injury history, but he's going to get the important carries down in the red zone. You might not get huge numbers from Mathews if he's only getting 15 or so carries every game, but he's still productive enough that you have to keep him active moving forward. 


Chargers RB Ryan Mathews scores third rushing TD of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews scored a rushing touchdown but was unable to make much else of an impact on the ground during Sunday's 34-33 victory in Week 13.

Mathews will look to get back on track Week 14 against New England.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews appears OK for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Chargers featured back Ryan Mathews appears ready to roll for the Sunday game in Baltimore after missing some of the Week 12 game with a shoulder injury sustained in the third quarter when two Rams defenders weighing a combined 600 pounds landed on it.

Mathews, who returned late in the fourth quarter, practiced Wednesday.


Ryan Mathews pulls away from Branden Oliver


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) Even though Chargers running back Ryan Mathews was more effective than Branden Oliver in his return from a shoulder injury, he split carries almost evenly with his replacement Week 11 against Oakland. That wasn't so much the case Week 12 against St. Louis, though, when Mathews took his first carry 11 yards and never looked back en route to 105. He also scored a touchdown on a 32-yard run in the third quarter.

He injured his shoulder on that play, which was a big reason why Oliver got the six carries he did, but Mathews returned and still finished with twice as many. Imagine how many yards he would have had if he had gotten 15-to-18 carries.

If Mathews had struggled to keep up with Oliver after the long layoff, the Chargers might continue to ease him in, but since he's been far and away the more effective of the two in two games back, he looks like he'll take the job and run with it, reducing Oliver to just a handcuff option in Fantasy.

Mathews falls a little short of must-start status with an especially tough matchup Week 13 at Baltimore, but for most owners, he's probably still worth running out there.


Ryan Mathews breaks out for first 100-yard game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews ran 12 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 win over the Rams, his first 100-yard effort this season. Mathews suffered a left shoulder injury when he ripped off a career-best 32-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, but he was able to return.

Mathews caught two passes for eight yards. He'll visit the Ravens in Week 13.


Ryan Mathews returns for Chargers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, who left the game against the Rams in the third quarter with a shoulder injury, returned late in the fourth quarter.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews leaves with shoulder injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews went to the locker room in the third quarter after sustaining a left shoulder injury, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Mathews returned to the sideline with his helmet on, but did not immediately reenter the game. The team called him questionable to return.

Branden Oliver and Donald Brown handled backfield duties following Mathews' injury.

Mathews headed to the locker room after a career-best 32-yard touchdown run. He ran 11 times for 102 yards and caught two passes for 8 yards before leaving.


Ryan Mathews leads Chargers rushing attack in Week 11 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews returned to action Sunday, rushing for 70 yards on 16 carries and catching his only target for another five yards in his team's 13-6 win over the Raiders in Week 11.

Mathews started out a little slow, gaining a total of one yard on his first three carries, but looked just fine after missing two months with a knee injury. His best carry came early in the third quarter, when he made a slight adjustment after taking the ball to cut through a hole in the defense and then kept his balance after taking his first hit before finally being dragged down with a 20-yard gain.

Running mate Branden Oliver also received 13 carries in a game that the Chargers led for more than 59 minutes. However, Oliver averaged just 2.8 yards per carry, gaining only 36 yards on the ground while adding one catch for three yards. Mathews will likely remain the No. 1 option in the running game moving forward while healthy. The Chargers move on to face the Rams in Week 12.


Ryan Mathews returns to lead role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Charges running back Ryan Mathews took the lead role back from  Branden Oliver in Week 11, after missing seven games with a knee injury.

The Chargers didn't really ease Mathews back in too much, as he touched the ball 17 times in the win. The blowout still left Oliver plenty of opportunities to contribute, as he added 13 carries, but was far less effective than Mathews, rushing for 34 fewer yards on just three fewer carries.

There is no question Mathews is the better option in the backfield, so it was good to see get something close to a full workload in his return. The Chargers trust Oliver enough to keep him involved, but Mathews is likely to get 15-20 touches per game. He should be a solid Fantasy option down the stretch, while Oliver will likely be just a handcuff option for Mathews owners.


Chargers RB Ryan Mathews active vs. Raiders


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is active as expected for Sunday's Week 11 matchup with the Raiders. Mathews will be playing for the first time since Week 2 due to a knee injury.

Chargers fairly healthy with Week 11 game on horizon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) Cornerback Jason Verrett (shoulder) is out and nose tackle Sean Lissemore (quad) is doubtful, but it appears all other Chargers are ready to roll Sunday against Oakland. The only exception could be safety Jahleel Addae (concussion), who is questionable.

The probables are linebackers Manti Te'o (foot) and Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring), running back Ryan Mathews (knee) and offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger (back).


Ryan Mathews projected to get 15 touches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, who's been out since Week 3 with a sprained MCL, is expected to start Sunday against Oakland and get about 15 touches, depending on game flow, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.
