Chargers running back Ryan Mathews suffered a broken clavicle on the third offensive play of Thursday night’s 21-13 preseason win against the Packers.
He is expected to miss four to six weeks coach Norv Turner said. Turner told Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune he doesn’t anticipate signing of running back. He said the team already has depth in place.
“That’s why Ronnie Brown‘s here,” Turner said. “I think you’re going to have situations where you’re not going to have everybody. That’s what I’ve been talking about since April after the draft and after we signed these players, we’ve protected ourselves in those situations. “If someone goes down, we have answers. We have guys who can step in and go.”
