McCoy: Ryan Mathews has a chance to play in Week 13
Wednesday, November 27, 2013, 12:41pm
We still consider him doubtful since he re-injured his hamstring, but we'll monitor his practice reps this week ahead of Sunday's game. The Chargers play in the late round of games. Danny Woodhead would be a great start if Mathews is sidelined, while Ronnie Brown would likely see an expanded backup role.
Ryan Mathews aggravates hammy
Sunday, November 24, 2013, 7:40pm
Chargers running back Ryan Mathews aggravated a right hamstring injury, forcing his third-quarter exit. He had 14 carries for 53 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown. It's his second goal-line score in three games.
No timetable was given for his absence or that of any Charger.
Brady: Shane Vereen's role 'hugely important'
Thursday, November 21, 2013, 11:18am
“Since the middle of last year, he has really emerged and developed into that role,” Tom Brady said. “I think the best part is he really understands the importance and magnitude of that role and takes a lot of pride in it. It’s a hugely important part of our offense.”
Vereen had 21 touches back in Week 1, and he registered nine touches (including eight catches) in Week 11, playing 47% of the snaps. He projects to be a low-end RB2 the rest of the way, but has more value in PPR formats.
Shane Vereen IN, Brandon Bolden OUT for MNF
Monday, November 18, 2013, 7:21pm
Shane Vereen is active and expected to be "eased in" per Adam Schefter, though that could mean many different things as we've seen in recent weeks with Andre Brown and Percy Harvin. Both Bolden and Washington are inactive, so Vereen should be the primary passing down RB. Combined, Vereen and Danny Woodhead saw an average of 11.6 touches in 2012, so expect 10-13 touches in a bad matchup with the Panthers. Shutdown CB Aqib Talib is also active.

MNF Injury Report - Mathews PROBABLE
Saturday, October 12, 2013, 5:35pm
S LaRon Landry (ankle), LB Bjoern Werner (foot)
LB Erik Walden (elbow)
RB Stanley Havili (ankle), DT Ricky Jean Francois (groin)
G Chad Rinehart (toe)
LB Donald Butler (groin), T D.J. Fluker (calf), LB Jarret Johnson (hamstring), CB Richard Marshall (groin)
G Jeromey Clary (collarbone), T King Dunlap (concussion), RB Ryan Mathews (concussion), G Rich Ohrnberger (groin), CB Johnny Patrick (chest), LB Manti Te'o (foot), CB Shareece Wright (hamstring)
Mathews is listed as probable despite suffering a concussion last week. In both standard and PPR rankings, though, we have Danny Woodhead as a much better play, and as the RB trending upward in the Charger backfield as of late. Mathews is ranked as an RB4 in what's considered a tough matchup against the Colts.
Ryan Mathews suffers a concussion
Monday, October 7, 2013, 9:08am
Mathews left the game in the second quarter. He rushed three times for eight yards.
Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown are the only other Chargers tailbacks on the roster and neither is really a carry-the-load back. Mathews was averaging about 15 carries a game this season as Woodhead saw his touches increasing since Week 1. If Mathews were to miss time, the team could look to bring in another back. The Bolts play Week 6 at Indy on Monday night so Mathews will have more time to pass protocol, but we may not know his status ahead of time.
