Not having met the Browns since 2009, the Chargers come into Northern Ohio with much to prove and little room for error.
The signing of guard/tackle Reggie Wells, a 10-year veteran, comes in the wake of the unknown verdict on starting left tackle Jared Gaither, out since late July with a back injury.
Excerpt: Mathews rushed for 1,091 yards last season in his second NFL campaign, injured his clavicle on his first carry of the first preseason game this summer. In that win over Green Bay. When the Bolts line up to meet the Raiders in Oakland, he still will not be in uniform, recovering from surgery. San Diego will also be without wide receiver Vincent Brown.
Whenever the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders get together on the football field, expect more than just a little excitement. In fact, expect an all out war.
