The San Diego Chargers have moved Jackie Battle ahead of Ryan Mathews on the teams depth chart. The reason according to the Chargers is because Battle started last week.
Battle, 29, ran for 39 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries against Kansas City. He also caught 4 passes for 42 yards and a touchdown.

Last season Mathews ran for 1091 yards in 14 games, he committed 5 fumbles

Jackie Battle’s arms are not this big Juan…

1) Rob Gronkowski: Gronk! How could he have killed your team? Well he was being touted as a first round pick coming into the season after setting the league on fire last year, but despite having a solid start to the season, he has not been elite in the first quarter of the season.
Tight end is a difficult position to scout – and if you spent a first rounder on Gronk you are...
