Ryan Mathews to honor injured San Diego Chargers teammate Danny Woodhead

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews missed seeing No. 39 on the practice field and game days.That jersey belongs to Danny Woodhead, a backfield mate whose season was cut short in Week 3 when he suffered a broken fibula against the Buffalo Bills. So the ex-Fresno State star donned the number in honor of his great friend, and he will continue to wear it in advance of Sunday’s showdown against the New England Patriots.
