Mathews: "My mindset is I'm playing"

San Diego Union Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews did what he could Sunday.

An ankle injury that's slowed him the past two weeks could be played on for so long. He was out most of the second half.

“My mindset is I'm playing (against Denver),” said Mathews, who praised the work of the team's running backs. “We keep fighting. Coach (Mike) McCoy says it all the time. It's the next man up. We're all ready.”

Fantasy Impact: 

It's interesting that Mathews just didn't say "I'm playing," since that's what most overly optimistic players would say at this point in the season. We'll watch his practice activity, but he may not be able to go against the Broncos.
