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 has been listed on the injury report 19 times for injuries that included his ankle, groin, calf, knee, elbow, and neck. It will be hard for him to shake the “injury-plagued” label that fans had already applied to him prior to this injury. Selected 12th in the 2010 draft after the San Diego Chargers traded up to get him, Mathews has had a nondescript career so far. After a lackluster rookie season in which he rushed for 678 yards, seven touchdowns,  and four fumbles, he rebounded a bit in 2011 with a 1,000 yard campaign and was selected to the Pro Bowl as an alternate, filling in for Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice. Through Sunday, Mathews had rushed for 707 yards, just one touchdown, and two fumbles. This year was the lowest yards per attempt of his career at 3.8. There is speculation that if/when the Chargers clean house and fire head coach Norv Turner and general manager AJ Smith, Mathews may be one of the players released by the new regime, given his underwhelming performance to date.   The post REPORT: Chargers Ryan Mathews Out for the Remainder of the Season appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
