Norv Turner won't say who the Chargers' starting running back is
San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner won’t say who his starting running back will be this week. Last week Jackie Battle got the majority of the carries in their win over the Chiefs
“The starter, we’ll find out on the first play of the game,” Turner said, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Battle doesn’t believe Ryan Mathews has lost his starting spot.
“I wouldn’t say he lost his starting job,” Battle said. “It’s just a title. He’s still going to get his reps. I’m still going to get mine.”
Even though battle is listed as the Chargers’ starting running back, I don’t believe it’s going to last much longer. In the end Mathews is a better player and will get his job back.
