- Rapoport adds that Mathews remains hopeful he can be back even sooner than this timeline.
We’ll have more updates regarding Mathews as the news is available.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Chargers RB Ryan Mathews is scheduled to undergo an MRI on injured knee after he was forced to leave Sunday’s game on a cart.
According to Schefter, the concern right now for the Chargers is that Mathews has a sprained MCL.
Mathews is in a contract year, so he really has a lot riding on this season. The good news is that we’re discussing his MCL and not his ACL. Players can come back in a few weeks from an MCL, but we’ll have to see what the MRI reveals in the coming days.
