San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews returned to practice today. Not sure if he is ready to take a hit yet, but he is out on the practice field trying to prep for the game Monday Night against the Raiders.

Mathews has been impressive in his road back to recovery. He has said all the right things and seems that he is making the effort to get back on the field. Can’t say that same thing about one of his injured teammate, Jared Gaither.

I would love to see Mathews back on the field against the Raiders, but he needs to be sure that he is all healed up and doesn’t suffer any setbacks when he does gat back. When he does return, he will be a huge boost to the offense.
