Raiders Vs. Chargers Injury Report: Ryan Mathews Is Full Participant In Practice

The Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers released their Tuesday practice participation reports as they prepare for their divisional Thursday Night Football showdown. The teams are tied for first and looking to gain an edge in their first of two games this season.

The biggest news from Tuesday's report was that Ryan Mathews was a full participant in practice. Mathews has been dealing with a groin injury, which is an injury that can easily lead to setbacks. If Mathews suffers no setbacks, he would likely split carries to some extent with Mike Tolbert on Thursday. Their is not always a clearly defined role between the two. Of course, both have struggled to stay healthy this season, so both have been necessary to get through each week.

The Raiders will likely be without Darren McFadden for Thursday's game, which means Michael Bush will get the start at running back, with Taiwan Jones backing him up. Sebastian Janikowski continues to sit out practice and the Raiders will likely reassess him on Wednesday before making a decision on bringing in a temporary kicker once again.
