The San Diego Chargers are expected to get running back Ryan Mathews back next week.

Mathews could have played this week, but was sat out due to a lack of playing time. He has been hampered by a collarbone injury.
However, the doctors have give him full clearance to play. He should put in a full week of practice, and be able to start next week against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Chargers have given him more than six weeks to recover from the injury and expect him to get a full workload when he returns.

Tight end Antonio Gates and running back Ryan Mathews are among the San Diego Chargers' inactives for their game against the Tennessee Titans.

With the San Diego Chargers hosting the Tennessee Titans Sunday for Week 2, the team decided to honor former linebacker Junior Seau, who sadly committed suicide back in May on a self-inflicted gun shot.Chargers defensive end Antonio Garay showed his dedication for the late great, having this amazing haircut. Garay is usually known for having interesting haircuts, but this by far...
Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley is starting Sunday's game in favor of Ronnie Brown.Fantasy Spin:Brown is on his last legs. Brinkley handled more carries than the veteran in Week 1 but neither did much against the Raiders. Oakland is getting shredded by Reggie Bush Sunday so it's more likely Brown and Brinkley just aren't very good. Only start Brinkley if you're desperate.
The San Diego Chargers announced they have signed cornerback Greg Gatson from the teams practice squad and released guard-tackle Reggie Wells.
Gatson, who wears No. 31, was signed in May as an undrafted rookie from Arkansas. He collected 15 tackles on defense during the preseason and one on special teams. Source: The Redzone Attached Thumbnails
Owning Antonio Gates in fantasy means you'll be an expert on the Q/D that shows next to his name all year long. I drafted Gates in the sixth round, so I don't have a huge investment in him. Plus I drafted Fleener as a TE handcuff.Now on to yesterday. Here is a timeline of how Gates' impact transpired:8:00a - Initial check/review of lineup. Proceed to watch pregames...
Dante Rosario made the most of Antonio Gates' absence. The tight end had three touchdown catches for the first time in his NFL career and San Diego's defense harassed Jake Locker all afternoon as the Chargers beat the Tennessee Titans for the ninth straight time, 38-10 Sunday.
SAN DIEGO -- With an injured Antonio Gates sitting out the contest, quarterback Philip Rivers found a new target at tight end to fill the void. Reserve Dante Rosario, who hadn't recorded a touchdown catch since 2009, when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers, was on the receiving end of a career-high three as the Chargers earned a 38-10 victory over Tennessee on Sunday...
SAN DIEGO -- Reserve tight end Dante Rosario had never caught more than two touchdown passes in a season during his previous five in the NFL. On Sunday, he surpassed that mark by becoming a focal point of the Chargers' offense. Rosario, who hadn't recorded a touchdown catch since 2009 when he was a member of the Carolina Panthers, was on the receiving end of a career-high...
As I'm sure you've discovered by now, I was generally satisfied with what I saw on Monday Night in Oakland. There is a lot to improve upon, but the biggest thing is that I never felt like the Chargers would inevitably make an asinine play and lose. That speaks volumes after what we all suffered through last season. When we were 4-1, we all vented about how the team...
Yesterday's game against the San Diego Chargers was really ugly, but it wasn't without a few bright spots. My post-game recap was pretty gloomy, so now it's time for a few reasons for optimism.
Jake Locker's mobility was evident again on a big scramble to convert third down. That play also drew a stupid personal foul penalty and sparked a scoring drive...
Well, this one didn't start pretty and it didn't end pretty. The Chargers took the opening kickoff for a touchdown, then scored on their second possession on a short field after an ugly Jake Locker overthrown interception. A three-and-out later, the Chargers were up 17-0 and it was a long day for the Tennessee Titans in their first regular season visit to San Diego since...
