Chargers RB Mathews inactive


Rookie running back Branden Oliver started Sunday’s game for the San Diego Chargers, who were without Ryan Mathews.

Mathews was inactive for the AFC West game with the first-place Denver Broncos.

Ryan injured his right ankle last Sunday against the New England Patriots and did not practice this week.

Oliver and Donald Brown will split the workload with veteran Ronnie Brown likely to contribute on third downs.
