Ryan Mathews Fractures Collar Bone, Week 1 Status In Jeopardy

 

Allow me to plagiarize myself.

From my Top 50 Running Backs post back on 7/18/12:

… he’s also proven to be inconsistent and has shown an inability to avoid the injury bug.  Analysts  everywhere are predicting a breakout year for Mathews, but his history has me worried about him being overvalued as a top ten pick in 2012.

One carry into the 2012 preseason, Ryan Mathews justified those worries.Mathews will miss the next 4-6 weeks following surgery on the broken clavicle he suffered in Thursday night’s preseason game versus the Green Bay Packers.  Out of nowhere, Mathews became the darling of many analysts this offseason, with some of them going as far as saying he was primed for a top 5 fantasy season.  This is a huge setback for those hopes.
