Chargers Not Sure Who They’ll Start At RB In Week 5 -

Chargers coach Norv Turner was noncommittal Friday when asked who he’ll start at running back in Week 5 against the Saints. “The starter, we’ll find out on the first play of the game,” Turner said. If the Chargers had truly had a permanent depth-chart change, it stands to reason Turner wouldn’t have been so evasive and named Jackie Battle the starter as he was last week. But that’s not the case. Turner did indicate that Battle and Ryan Mathews will form a Week 5 timeshare. “It’s not a big deal,” said Turner. “One had 14 carries and one had 15 carries (last week), and if we can get that done again, it’ll be outstanding.”
