Mathews Misses Practice with Neck Injury

Posted by Ricky Henne on November 14, 2012 – 5:20 PM

Ryan Mathews missed practice today with a stiff neck.  He injured himself on the same hit in the third quarter on Sunday that the Buccaneers’ Quincy Black suffered a season-ending neck injury on.

Here is what head coach Norv Turner had to say about Mathews and his injury.

“His neck is pretty stiff.  He took a pretty good shot on that hit. We’ll see where he’s at tomorrow.  Hopefully he’ll be alright and be able to practice tomorrow and Friday and be able to play on Sunday.”

    matthews is way to injury prone. we need to get a good dependable back that can stay healthy

    Please draft a new back next year or get Reggie Bush because hes on his contract year and trade back for Mike Tolbert and release Mathews.

    He won’t be missed anyways ever since he started playing is just has losses than wins..put Jackie Battel and Rosario on the line.

    Ryan give back all that money cuz your not able to jump start your career and put confidence in sd charger fans. I saw you play all through college at FSU and you were injury prone. Us charger fans are dissapointed in u ryan leaf….i mean ryan matthews.

    Mathews never leaves a play without respect. The more he runs, the better I feel, win or lose.

    mattews is garbage, plain and simple. watch any good running back in the league, and you will see that mattews runs nothing like them

    Ryan Mathews has no jukes or cuts at all. All he does in run straight. I bet old LT is still better. Come out of retirement!

    Are you guys really bashing Mathews? Norv runs the ball like a straight Pu$$y…

    Shotgun formation runs dont even count in my book I want to see us really run the ball hard that is how Ryan ran in Fresno and Norv is just to much of a cute run play caller to be any good in the NFL today.

    a bunch of jack a**es on here, mathews is a strong good back, he’s been able to produce more than any of the other backs currently on the team, it’s not his problem the line can’t hold and norv can’t draw up a descent run play.

    You guys are morons. Mathews is the most dynamic player on offense but Norv COMPLETELY underuses him. I guarantee if Norv gave him 20 carries a game we would rarely lose. But Norv keeps doing the same thing, with the same results and that’s why he will be fired.

    That was a wicked shot. Sad to see anyone hurt but it shows Matthew’s toughness that he went heads up with a linebacker and came away walking when the other guy didn’t. Heal up sir! We need all our weapons!

    Matthews has a lot to prove. He was thrown into the Spot Light of a departing, Future Hall of Fame Player LT. He comes in with high expectations from fans and a horrible Offensive Line. Norv is in panic mode because his job is at risk. He took a 14-2 team under Marty and has turned them into a drop to your knees and pray in Nov and Dec team. Even AJ who had such confidence in his “yes Sir” coach is turning his back on him with the “with another losing season, we will have to take the team in another direction” comment. A fan is a fan, win or lose. Look at the Raiders, Browns, or Lions fans. All support losing teams. So true fans, sit in the seats, shout at the top of your lungs, and just keep supporting your special NFL team. But…. Norv and AJ might really have to go. And please throw English in that group. I’d rather have Merriman back and now we can get him for a discounted rate.

    figures. mr. china doll is broken again… there is nothing good about this team anymore.. go get a new GM, like bill polian, new coach, like marty shottenheimer, or bill cowher, or.. then get a O lone and a REAL NFL running back.. this team is pathetic… fouts and coryell are probably crying right now

    Can’t believe “some” of the comments I see on here sometimes are you guys even fans of the same team as me?You guys rag on the players but expect them to produce for you?I’m sure the only reasons these guys have to win is for themselves and for the fans that still believe in them not the ones that just talk s**t on them.My message to all charger players is remember their are fans that still believe in this team forget the Haters.

    Mathews,(one t you stupid fucks) is one of the most fluid runners in the nfl. He is in fact underutilized, and under-coached. AJ Smith is an asshole, who cant resign a player to save a life, and our big uglies havent been getting it done in this post-mcneil/diehlman era. So when he goes to another team, and you idiots are scratching your heads wondering why he’s leading the league in rushing, im gonna be hunting down AJ.

    Mathews is the best. I seen him play in person. Most of you guys are arm chair qb trolls. You think you know the game. When all you know is dish network game plan. He does what the coach tells him to do. They practice that way. Most of you if you got hit a quarter as hard as he gets hit would be on disability ! I thank god t hat the pro teams dot pay attention to you trolls like they do in college.

    You guys are way too critical. The guy on the other end of the collision is OUT FOR THE YEAR!!!! And he is the bigger defensive player. Matthews is good when he gets the ball. Asking for Tolbert back? What has Tolbert done this year? Nothing. You can’t just draft one Hall of Fame running back after another.

    What happend to mathews becoming an elite running back? And for all the backups to come in to try to make the yards that mathews cant get is pathetic. At times like this I really miss LT.

    Just give him the f….. ball!!!!!!
