Ryan Mathews Breaks Clavicle, Out 4 to 6 Weeks

Ryan Mathews left tonight’s game with a shoulder injury after one carry. He is now the current poster boy for the risk of injury in preseason games. According to Michael Gehlken, Mathews suffered a broken clavicle and will now be out 4-6 weeks. That estimate would put him potentially returning for the season opener in the best case scenario while missing the rest of the preseason, and missing the first two games in a worst case, before working back into the mix.

Mathews has yet to play a full season since entering the league two years ago, and is already in jeopardy of making it three years in a row with missed games due to a variety of injuries. The positive: once this heals, there should be no long term concern if it heals properly.
