San Diego running back Ryan Mathews (shoulder) remained sidelined at Chargers practice on Wednesday. The tailback injured his clavicle in the preseason; an injury which continues to effect him into the regular season.
Fantasy Analysis: Even though it was expected, this is not a good sign for fantasy owners who drafted Mathews. They will likely have to watch him ride the bench yet again as Ronnie Brown leads an attack-by-committee. Mathews is expected to be back for the Chargers this season but there is uncertainty surrounding when that might be. The best bet for owners is to hang tight with him until he returns, but it does not yet appear that he will be ready to go.
