Ryan Mathews sat out of practice today as the Chargers started preperations for the Denver Broncos. Although the team will not put out an injury report until tomorrow, head coach Norv Turner said he expects everyone who missed practice today to be able to play on Monday night.
Turner was also effusive in his praise of Mathews. Here is what he had to say about him during his press conference with the media:
“Every time he has adversity or a setback, he comes back stronger. He’s done that since he’s been here. Every time everyone wants to count him out he comes back and he’s better. He’s just a mentally tough guy that when he’s on and he’s right, he’s really good.”

The Chargers will don their “Power Blue”/powder blue jerseys for the first time this season Monday night against Denver. San Diego has won 12 of the last 15 games while wearing them. Overall, since the powder-blue color first reappeared in 1994 during the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Season, the Chargers have a 14-8 record in those colored jerseys.
The team redesigned its uniform in 2007, introducing the new powder blue alternate uniform, and the Bolts are 9-3 in that jersey. From 1994-06, the Chargers wore their “Throwback” jerseys modeled after uniforms worn by the 1963 AFL Championship squad 10 times (5-5 record).
The Chargers will also wear the powder blues on Nov. 25 vs. Baltimore.
