A few minutes later the NFL Around the League Twitter account added:

Entering this week, Mathews had ran for 226 yards and zero touchdowns on 64 carries, averaging just 3.5 yards per attempt.
After being the No. 12 overall selection in the 2010 NFL draft, Mathews has yet to live up to expectations in San Diego. He's ran for just 2,702 yards in his career, and injuries forced him to miss 10 games already over his career.
This isn't what the Chargers wanted to see on Sunday night. We will keep you updated with any additional information regarding the injury as it comes in.
