In his weekly press conference, head coach Norv Turner said that Ryan Mathews still has not been cleared for contact, and that he doesn’t have a firm date yet on when he will be.
“It could be tomorrow, or it could be a week from tomorrow,” he said. “We’re continuing to evaluate him and hopefully it will be sooner than later. But again, we’ll get an update tomorrow based on how much he’s able to do in practice, and the day he’s cleared, we’ll let you know.”
Mathews fractured his clavicle on his first carry of the preseason and has been working hard to get back out on the field. Being cleared for contact is one of the last hurdles needed for him to be ready for game action.
