Ryan Mathews breaks clavicle

Mike Florio: (PFT)

When the Chargers declared an intention to convert running back Ryan Mathews into a workhorse this season, many wondered whether he’d stay healthy.

Few imagined that he’d be injured so quickly.

The team has announced that Mathews has a broken clavicle, and that he’ll miss the next four-to-six weeks.

Mathews will have surgery on Friday.

The injury bumps up the likes of Ronnie Brown, Jackie Battle, Curtis Brinkley, Michael Hayes, and Edwin Baker.

The Chargers also could try to sign an available veteran, like Cedric Benson. Or the Chargers can wait for the coming roster cuts. Or the Chargers can swing a trade with a team that believes it has more running backs than it needs.

Or the Chargers can just pass the ball more.

Florio, seriously? I know you talking about us. Stewart? No way.

We don't feel we have more RB's than we need, otherwise we wouldn't have signed Tolbert,

4-6 weeks? I don't see the Chargers doing anything drastic to compensate.

He'll likely get hurt again, dude is made out of glass.

They have servicable backs after Matthews. I doubt they go out and sign someone like Benson or try to trade for someone.

Probably nothing drastic, but they'll do something. Norv knows he has to win this year.

But that's okay. He can take our OC spot after Chud leaves to be HC in San Diego.
