Chargers RB Ryan Mathews listed as probable for Thursday
Willis McGahee all ran over the Oakland Raiders' defense last week without much resistance. San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews will get his chance to do the same on Thursday. Mathews was a full participant during the team's Tuesday and Wednesday practices, and he is listed as probable for the game. He missed the Chargers' previous game because of a groin injury.
Of course, Mike Tolbert will be involved quite a bit, but even with his carry count perhaps a little limited, Mathews is a very strong start against that Oakland defense. Don't forget that before Oakland gave up 299 yards on the ground to the Broncos, they had allowed Jackie Battle to run for close to five yards per carry in week seven. And Arian Foster gained 184 yards from scrimmage against the Raiders in week five.
