Chargers RB Ryan Mathews appears OK for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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

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.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews leaves with shoulder injury

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.
