After sitting out a day of practice because of a car accident, Ryan Mathews was back out on the field last night at Qualcomm Stadium and didn’t skip a beat. Any injury concerns from the car accident can be brushed to the side since he was able to go full speed.

“He looked fast to me,” coach Norv Turner said after practice, which was held at Qualcomm Stadium. “He looked real fast. He’s a really explosive player. Just missing a couple days and then coming back out here, you just feel his presence.” SDUT

Now the Chargers need to find ways to get those other players off the sideline and back into practice.
