Ryan Mathews held out of practice with concussion


The Chargers will get a much needed blocker back, but they could be without a back they need as well.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, running back Ryan Mathews has not been cleared to resume practicing after suffering a concussion last week against the Raiders.

The better news is that left tackle King Dunlap has been cleared after his concussion, and returned to practice today, although the Chargers line remains in flux.

Left guard Chad Rinehart (foot) isn’t practicing today, and now right tackle D.J. Fluker is not practicing either, though there was no explanation for his absence.

The Chargers have struggled to keep a healthy line in front of Philip Rivers this season, spoiling what has been, on the whole, a solid bounce-back season for him.

    They are just being nice. Real reason is he is held out for being terrible at football.

    I’m a Bolt fan and I have to say I don’t have the patience anymore to wait for this guy to “break out” on a good season. Next guy up is what I’m saying. Isn’t Michael Turner still out there?

    Michael Turner is awful.

    Never thought I’d read that, but it seems like Dunlap is holding up okay in San Diego.

    I’ve just about given up on this guy. Although not as soft as say a Darren Mcfadden….the guy is still hurt an awful lot.

    Mathews is done. Injured too much; little production. Time to draft a better RB in the middle rounds next year…

    Take it from an Eagles fan, it’s never good news for King Dunlap to be in the lineup.

    When Matthews retires, he can play Samuel L Jackson’s role in Unbreakable 2.

    Tvguy22: he beat you a few weeks back then again so does everyone else. NFC Least where the Bolts would be in first place pretty pathetic
