San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews is putting in the effort to try and  return from a broken clavicle as soon as possible. He is recovering quickly. He had this quote to share after he was able to return to practice:

“You just got to be confident about it. I think if you’re sulking around, just basically feeling sorry for yourself, everything takes longer. You’ve got to have that mindset that you’re going to get back as soon as possible.” – SDUT

I like his approach to returning back to the field! Confidence! No sulking!

Wonder if he was referencing a teammate when he mentions ‘sulking and feeling sorry about themselves, making the recovery process take longer’? That doesn’t sound like anyone on the roster, right?

Could the third year running back really be throwing a jab at Jared Gaither? The fans and media have been all over Gaither’s case. He seems that he is playing up the injury and his history doesn’t really help his case.

Is there already animosity building up in the locker room? Did he call him out?
