Chargers running back Ryan Mathews left the visitor's locker room on crutches, with his left foot in a walking boot. Teammate Mike Tolbert suffered a concussion during Sunday's 29-24 victory over the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field and did not return.
Mathews remained productive despite early injuries. He had a career-high 125 yards on 24 carries. His injuries, just like Tolbert, aren't expected to affect his playing status for the Oct. 23 game at the New York Jets following next week's bye.
We'll continue to follow the progress of both backs leading up to week 7 against the Jets.
