Chargers | Ryan Mathews still not cleared for contact

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) has not been cleared for contact yet after suffering a broken clavicle Aug. 9. It is not clear if Mathews will be available to return to action in Week 2 when the Chargers host the Tennessee Titans. The team hasn't given a clear indication when he will be cleared to return. "It could be tomorrow, or it could be a week from tomorrow. We're continuing to evaluate him, and hopefully, it will be sooner rather 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," head coach Norv Turner told the media Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The waiting game continues. For now, proceed for Week 2 as if you will have to keep Mathews riding the pine for another week.
