Ryan Matthews Doubtful for Monday Night

Matthews was able to work out on Wednesday, but was still not allowed to practice during the contact portions of the day. Matthews had surgery earlier this camp to repair a broken clavicle. Norv Turner was quoted by North County Times stating “He’s doing everything possible to get back.” But, he does not think Matthews will be prepared for game one. If Matthews is not ready Ronnie Brown will be the starter Monday Night, which is not going to excite the Chargers faithful.

Jared Gaither will definitely not be starting Monday Night with his continuing back spasms being a problem. This has been a disappointing pick up for San Diego thus far, and they will be forced to start undrafted rookie Mike Harris at left tackle. This especially hurts Norv Turner’s offense, which is predicated on rushing and a deep passing game. Rivers is going to have his hands full Monday Night against the Oakland defense.
