Ryan Mathews Injury: Chargers RB Not Expected To Play Vs. Titans

According to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is unlikely to play against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Mathews practiced this week but it looks like he hasn't recovered from his collarbone injury enough to see the field on Sunday.

Mathews has a broken clavicle that he suffered on his first carry of the preseason, adding to his long history of injury issues dating back to his college days. In his place will be former Miami Dolphin Ronnie Brown, who started in Mathews place during the Chargers' Week 1 win over the Oakland Raiders.

When Mathews is on the field, he can be one of the more complete backs in the NFL. But due to injuries, he has not had the opportunity to consistently be that for the Chargers and this is another instance where his lack of durability will make him miss time.
