Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Mathews still isn’t running on his injured knee. It looks like Branden Oliver will continue to be the lead back through Week 9, maybe longer. We were expecting Mathews to be further along in his recovery by now, but knee injuries are tricky. He was expected to miss 4-5 weeks, and he is now in the middle of the 5th week of his recovery.

Rams RB Zac Stacy (ankle) did not practice Wednesday. Stacy’s injury may open the door for Benny Cunningham and/or Tre Mason to see additional snaps in what has devolved into an ugly RBBC in St. Louis. Complicating matters, the matchup with the Seahawks isn’t good.

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart (knee) took full practice reps again Thursday. Stewart is expected to start in a nice matchup against the Packers. Consider him a RB3/flex type since the Panther running game isn’t exactly firing on all cylinders.
