Chargers S Jahleel Addae diagnosed with concussion
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Chargers safety Jahleel Addae was diagnosed with a concussion Friday, U-T San Diego reports.

Addae appeared shaken up after a big hit at the end of the third quarter during Thursday's loss to the Broncos but was diagnosed with a stinger and allowed to remain in the game. Addae suffered the stinger as well, possibly on a big hit during the first defensive play of the game. The safety played 54 of 71 defensive snaps Thursday. He'll have to go through concussion protocol before being allowed to practice.

Chargers RB Ryan Mathews could return Week 9
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

There's a chance Chargers running back Ryan Mathews will return Week 9, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

"That's in my head," Mathews said. "I'm just going keep doing my treatment this week, come back on Monday, and see what they say." Mathews has missed six straight games due to an MCL sprain. Mathews was able to put in some work prior to Thursday night's game, though he was not a candidate to play. He seemed to handle the workout well.

Branden Oliver now looking like less of a sure thing
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

After taking the league by storm with consecutive 100-yard rushing games, Chargers running back Branden Oliver has come back to earth over the last two weeks.

Oliver rushed for just 36 yards on 13 carries in Week 8 against the Broncos, his second straight game with six or fewer Fantasy points. Though it looked like he might take the starting job and run with it, Oliver's struggles over the last two games should leave the door open for Ryan Mathews to take on a solid role when he comes back from his knee injury -- whenever that might be.

As long as Mathews remains out, Oliver will be the go-to back in San Diego, but this is something to keep an eye on. He could remain useful in the Danny Woodhead role, however, even when Mathews is back, so don't expect Oliver to lose all his value. But he has a tough matchup on the way in Week with a Dolphins defense that is allowing just 3.70 yards per carry to running backs on the way.

Keenan Allen still searching for the big play
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen put together his second double-digit Fantasy point effort of the season Thursday, but does Week 8 represent a turning point in his season?

Allen finally found the end zone for the first time all season en route to a seven-catch, 73-yard effort, which made for his best outing of the season. However, we still see some of the big issues that have limited him all season lurking in Allen's supposed breakout game.

Targets and catches have been there all season for Allen, but he hasn't done much with them, and that was still something of an issue Thursday. He had a season-high 41 yards after the catch, but that came out to an average of just 4.6 per reception. That is still down from 6.2 per catch a year ago.

Allen's role in the offense is still big enough that there is reason for confidence, but his inability to break off the big play remains troubling. Until he starts to turn that trend around, Allen's upside remains limited.
