A hamstring ailment landed Chargers running back Ryan Mathews on the injury report Friday, but he is probable for Sunday night’s game at Oakland.

According to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune, coach Mike McCoy indicated Mathews was dealing with some tightness.

Mathews leads the Chargers in rushing yards (226) and carries (64) through four games. Danny Woodhead has become the club’s primary receiving threat out of the backfield, catching 20 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns in the last three weeks.

The Chargers (2-2) are two games behind the unbeaten Broncos and Chiefs in the AFC West. San Diego is one game ahead of Oakland, which has lost two games in a row.

    biggest mistake SD has made. letting so many quality HB’s go in order to keep Mathews as THE guy. in a league where you want 2 HB’s. they finally got a guy in woodhead who is a good player, but wow, letting Tolbert and sproles leave? ouch.

    Hope he plays actually, don’t think his game and 3.9 carry average is anything to be scared about, fumbles too.

    Might as well call this a Monday morning game in lieu of Sunday night game!

    This guy should be the poster child for why we need Obamacare. ‘Probable?’ Probable to go on IR after the game is more like it.

    Put my grandmother in at RB, doesn’t really matter. Playing football in a toilet against a floating turd of a football team, the disChargers shouldn’t have to much difficulty in this one. That’s all dependent on the fact that they remember not to slip in the overflow of Jokeland fan’s fecal matter swish-swashing around the stadium…

    Mathews is the new McFadden.

    Funny you say that, considering that’s how the league views DMC.

    SD’s starting left tackle is out. There’s your weakness. Jason Tarver needs to make the defense clamp down on that like a pitbull and not let go.

    Awesome, he should be good for a couple of fumbles.
