Last Thursday, Chargers running back Ryan Mathews fractured a clavicle on his first carry of the preseason. A week later, he has “no doubt” he’ll be ready to go in Week 1 when the Chargers face the Raiders on Monday Night Football. Reported by Profootballtalk.com

The three-year veteran said that he’s out of a sling, and he believes he’s ahead of schedule. The Chargers initially said that Mathews is expected to miss four-to-six weeks. The front end of that estimate would indeed allow him be ready for the first week of the regular season. He also explained that he has been doing some light workouts and will start running again next week. We recommend more of a wait-and-see approach on him while considering your running back depth if needed to cover him for one to three weeks.
