Reporters are only allowed to attend one organized team activity per week for the San Diego Chargers. So on Tuesday we reported that running back Ryan Mathews was as no-show for the team's first OTA.
However, Ricky Henne of Chargers.com, the team’s website, writes that Mathews was in attendance on Wednesday, and looks to build on his career-best 2013 season.
“This whole process has been fun and it’s important,” Mathews said. “It’s great to be back to football and be around these guys. We brought a bunch of new guys in and they fit right in. We have a good group and all have roles. We’re going to be a tight knit group and will feed off each other to do whatever it takes to win.”
