The Chargers are playing mediocre so far this preseason even though they placed a beat down on the Green Bay Packers 21 -13 and Dallas Cowboys 28 to 20. The Chargers defense came off firing forcing fumbles left and right. The offense looked sloppy because of the Rivers interception and the missed 35 yard field gold by Nick Novak. Rivers again threw two more interceptions. Against Dallas, the Chargers second team out played the first team squad.
Ryan Mathews broke his clavicle and had surgery the next day. Mathews has gone to the media stating he will be back by the time opening day rolls around.

Brown is suppost to have surgery on sunday according to team sources. Brown will be gone for at least eight weeks and five games. He could possibly come back from injury around the New Orleans game. He will then have to recover and attend rehab. The injury is possibly a season ending injury.
