The Chargers don’t plan on Sunday being the last short-yardage touchdowns by Mike Tolbert.
The fullback-tailback stepped in for Mathews Sunday, carrying 16 times for 82 yards and two touchdowns (from 2 and 1 yards). Even when the 218-pound Mathews returns, it won’t be unusual to see the 245-pound Tolbert subbed in at the line.
“I like both of them at the goal line a lot,” Turner said. “You get down in there and things get real tight, obviously Michael is alittle bit bigger and has more experience in our goal line runs. But I see both of them being in there at the goal line.”
