Ryan Mathews (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's looking like Ryan Mathews' impact in this Sunday's showdown versus the Broncos will match what he did during the practice week: nil. Mathews didn't practice Friday, his third consecutive practice missed because of an ankle injury. The Chargers have yet to rule him out for Week 15. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Officially, Mathews is questionable. But players rarely play after zero practice unless they are long-time veterans or one of the game's greats. Mathews is neither; he's a talented-but-injury-prone back who has dealt with knee, shoulder and ankle ailments this year. If he can't go, Donald...

Ryan Mathews misses another practice Thursday

Right ankle injury Chargers RB Ryan Mathews not practicing today. Yet to this week after right ankle injury Sunday. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter) FF Today's Take: The link provides footage of how the injury happened; suffice it to say Mathews faces long odds of playing this week with any kind of effectiveness if he is somehow cleared in time. Making matters worse, Mathews' long injury history and the opponent this week (the Denver Broncos) are also working against him. Donald Brown has overtaken Branden Oliver in recent weeks, but the two would likely share touches if Mathews...

Film Study: Mathews has Success with the Counter Play

For the second week in a row, we're going to take a look at a successful running play. This week, the Chargers use a nicely designed Counter to get Ryan Mathews some running room, and extend what became the offense's only scoring drive on Sunday. The Counter play is a staple for every running game playbook in football. It is a misdirection play, as the primary idea behind the play is to force the defense to move in the direction away from where the play is going. In that sense, the Counter is another example of a constraint play (i.e. a play used to keep the defense honest), and this...

Ryan Mathews Questionable For Week 15 With Ankle Injury

Chargers running back Ryan Mathews (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:He injured his right ankle during the first half of Week 14. He had only two carries during the second half, and his status is now in question for Sunday. Branden Oliver will see an increase in snaps if Mathews sits.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews misses Wednesday practice with ankle injury; status unknown

San Diego RB Ryan Mathews missed practice Wednesday with an ankle injury he sustained in Week 14. His status is currently unknown for the Chargers Week 15 game with Denver. If Matthews is ruled out, Donald Brown will likely get the start at runnig back, with Branden Oliver backing him up. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Against the Broncos tough run defense and likely to be playing from behind, there isn't a San Diego running back that's worth using unless you're in a bind this week. If you're planning to use Matthews, be sure you have a backup plan in place before Sunday.
