    Jackie Battle started for the Chargers against the Chiefs on Sunday and was getting a majority of the early work. Battle got six of the Chargers first seven rushing attempts as they built a 17-0 lead — and Battle scored a touchdown.

    San Diego general manager A.J. Smith threatened to send Ryan Mathews packing over his fumbling problems, telling the San Diego Union-Tribune he could "be somebody else's fumbler."

    The Chargers did follow through with their threat and benched Mathews against the Chiefs. WhileBattle played pretty well when Mathews was out early this season with a broken clavicle, the San Diego offense is not going to be as good with Mathews is nailed to the bench.
