Chargers Injury Report: Mathews Appears Cleared For Contact; Gates Still Not Practicing


Ryan Mathews is in full pads today in practice and it appears that he is cleared for contact. This could be a huge boost for our running game. Just don’t hit him in the shoulder guys! We will know more after practice. (Gehlken)

Quentin Jammer was back on the practice field after taking a day off yesterday with a broken hand. Richard Goodman was also back and cleared for practice after suffering a concussion.

Antonio Gates missed his second straight practice with sore ribs. I would have thought that he would be back on the field today, but it looks like another day to rest.

Shareece Wright was still out with an ankle injury. He was in a boot and crutches yesterday and it doesn’t look like he will be ready for the game on Sunday.

Jared Gaither is playing solitaire… or something like that.

UPDATE (2:17pm): Mathews appears cleared for contact, but he skipped the blocking sled drill and still appears unlikely to play. (McLellan)

    yay get to see Harris do his stuff for another week. i wonder if we could trade Gaithers contract for Harris’s contract at the end of the season when Gaither is still out and the rookie shows out lol jp but it would be nice to see Harris have another stellar night. and thats what im hoping for.
