Ryan Mathews returns to practice, questionable

The San Diego Union-Tribune - [Full Article]

Chargers running back Ryan Mathews practiced in a limited role Friday, his first on-field activity of any kind this week after sitting out with a neck injury.

The third-year pro hasn't played when he didn't practice during the week, so his participation in individual and team drills offers a glimmer of hope that he could be active Sunday against Denver.

Mathews was listed as questionable on the team's official injury report, which was released after Friday's practice.

Fantasy Impact: 

The newspaper's use of the phrase "glimmer of hope" doesn't sound very encouraging. If he can't play, Jackie Battle and Ronnie Brown would form a RBBC in a bad matchup with the Broncos. The Chargers play in the second round of games on Sunday so owners may want to have a Plan B ready to go.
