Michael Gehlken of Urban-Tribune San Diego reported Sunday night that Chargers RB Ryan Mathews suffered another broken clavicle during Week 15′s disappointing loss. Gehlken adds that Mathews is currently the Chargers only running back under contract next season, so they will have to “decide their level of faith in whether Mathews can follow course in 2013.“ Gehlken notes that Mathews durability has been a concern since the Chargers took him in the first round of the 2009 draft. Mathews has been placed on the injured/reserved list after the injury, so the Chargers will have to consider adding a free agent or possibly taking a running back at some point during next year’s draft. We have Steven Jackson and Reggie Bush as the only running backs in our Top 50 Free Agent List. For the complete list of available players, check out our 2013 Free Agents list.
