Raiders Vs. Chargers MNF Injury Report: Ryan Matthews Admits He Won't Play

The Oakland Raiders received some good news Friday when San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Matthews shared that he doesn't think he will be participating in Monday night's game, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Here's what the third-year Fresno State product had to say on the subject:

"I haven't been cleared for contact, and I think we're just going to wait this week," Mathews said. "I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing. ... I just have to have the mindset right. I probably won't be playing in this game."

Matthews has been rehabbing his broken clavicle since suffering the injury back on Aug. 9. He began participating in individual drills this week at practice but apparently that wasn't good enough for the individuals who make the important decisions for the Chargers.

Ronnie Brown is now expected to shoulder the load against the Raiders. Jackie Battle and Curtis Brinkley could also see an uptick in carries as San Diego attempts to pick up the slack.
