San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is listed as "day to day" after getting banged up in a car accident. Mathews told reporters he banged an elbow "a little bit" and was sore on Tuesday. He said the accident occurred while he was driving a familiar road on his way to the team hotel after watching a movie at his home. "It's a freak thing that happened," he said. "I drive that corner every day going to work. I felt like I played about four games when I woke up this morning," Mathews said after sitting out Tuesday's practice. (ESPN)
