NFL Injury Report:
San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews broke his left
clavicle during yesterday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers and will be out for
the remainder of the season, reports Michael Gehlken of the U-T San Diego.
Ryan Mathews broke his left clavicle. Broke right clavicle in preseason. Out for year.
— Michael Gehlken (@UTgehlken) December 17, 2012
Mathews rushed four times for 22 yards and caught three
passes for eight yards Sunday before sustaining his season-ending injury. He previously
broke his right clavicle on his first carry of the preseason.
It’s been another disappointing year for Mathews, who was
selected 12th overall in the 2010 draft by the Chargers. On the
season he amassed 707 yards and one touchdown on 187 carries to go with 39
receptions for 252 yards.
Running back Ronnie Brown is also dealing with injury at
this point, so Curtis Brinkley and Jackie Battle are likely to split a bulk of
the carries for the Chargers from here on out.

Per Rob Kelley of the Pigskin Report, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is out for the rest of the season with a broken left clavicle. This was not the same injury he sustained during the preseason, where he broke his right clavicle. This is just the latest injury for Mathews who has been plagued by numerous injuries during his short three year career. Since 2010, Mathews...
The San Diego Chargers are a team in a state of flux currently, but one of the biggest question marks surrounding the team is whether or not RB Ryan Mathews is a NFL caliber running back. Mathews was selected by the Chargers as the heir-apparent replacement for LaDainian Tomlinson, after the club moved up in the draft to select him. He came with an impressive resume, but he is now...
Michael Gehlken reports that Chargers RB Ryan Mathews is done for the season after he suffered a broke his right collarbone during Sunday’s loss to the Panthers.
This is the second time he’s broken his collarbone this season, all be it this time it was the other side.
Mathews’ 2012 season has been as disappointing as any, and there’s certain to be question about his future...
The holiday season is, once again, upon us, presumably leading NFL fans everywhere to ponder what their favorite team(s) might be hoping for next season.1. For the sake of redundancy, I will lump the obvious ones together: an improved offensive line, a new general manager who does not subscribe to A.J. Smith's end-of-season-fire-sale mentality; and a head coach who isn't...
Poor Norv can't even buy a vowel when that's all that remains in the puzzle.
The San Diego Chargers have ruled linebacker Demorrio
Williams out for today’s contest against the Carolina Panthers, while running
back Ronnie Brown is doubtful and wide receiver Eddie Royal is questionable.
Brown didn’t practice all week after suffering a hamstring
injury during last weekend’s victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The
backup running back, who’s...
Ryan Mathews went down with his second broken collarbone of the season. That means the running back situation in San Diego is opened up. Their stable includes Curtis Brinkley, Jackie Battle, and Ronnie Brown. After Mathews went down last week Brinkley was the most productive of the group. He tallied 6 carries for 42 yards [...]
The Carolina Panthers "Chargers East" embarrassed the San Diego Chargers, 31-7 on Sunday. San Diego has been on a downward spiral since the week six Monday Night Football "double-header" versus Denver by losing to Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Denver (again), Baltimore, and Cincinnati. The team has only bested Kansas City (really, who hasn't), and, frankly, surprised...
The Carolina Panthers will play against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Scheduled for a 4:05 pm EST kickoff this game will air on FOX from Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.
Both teams could look quite different next season. Reports suggest that Chargers coach Norv Turner is set to be fired along with general manager AJ Smith. The Panthers have already made a move to replace their...
SAN DIEGO - In a season of lows, the Chargers hit their lowest point Sunday. In one of their worst performances, San Diego lost out on its slim chance for a playoff berth after being pounded by the Carolina Panthers 31-7. "We did a great job of starting fast and getting in a groove of things very early," said quarterback Cam Newton, who completed 19 of 33 passes for...
SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers killed their slim hopes for a playoff berth with one of their worst performances of the season. Two touchdown passes by Carolina quarterback Cam Newton and two rushing scores by fullback Mike Tolbert boosted the Panthers to a 31-7 victory Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium. The loss officially ended San Diego's bid for the postseason. It's...
The San Diego Chargers have placed wide receiver Malcolm Floyd, running back Ryan Mathews and tackle Reggie Wells on the season-ending Reserve-Injured List, the team announced Tuesday. The three players were injured during the Chargers' home loss to the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. Floyd suffered an ankle injury after starting the first 14 games, catching 56 passes for...
