Ryan Mathews in doubt for Week 12

Michael Gehlken, Twitter - [Full Article]

Chargers HC Norv Turner doesn't say much on Ryan Mathews. "Hopefully he'll be alright. If he's not, Mike Tolbert and Curtis Brinkley will take the load."

Fantasy Impact: 

We never like to hear head coaches use the word "hopeful" when describing a player's potential availability. We'll keep an eye on Mathews' practice participation on Friday, but he is looking iffy for Week 12. The Chargers play at 4:15 PM ET, so fantasy owners will likely have to make a decision about Mathews on Sunday morning with limited information. If he sits, Mike Tolbert becomes a solid RB2 start against the Broncos.
