06:58 AM ET 07.02 | Perhaps the report that never was will wind up, in the end, helping Ryan Mathews. [Mathews is] a good kid with bad luck and seemingly not a whole bunch of common sense. Thankfully for the Chargers and Mathews, they aren't dealing with another NFL arresting development. But let's not get carried away in Mathews' vindication in this particular instance. ... Get the heck out of trouble's way, kid. Mathews did not deserve to be the subject of an unfounded report. But at a time when he is in need of a career-saving season, he is instead the subject of more nonsense he isn't entirely immune to. False though the particular report may be, the questions it raises are the more troubling aspect.

C'mon. It's Aaron Hernandez's time to be in the spotlight. Don't deny him that.

Nightclub altercations are so 5 years ago anyway

Grow up, young man.

And the Question is ?

Much ado about nothing.

Trying to unearth the past... Let it go.

I stopped watching this kid's career so long ago it feels like he's long retired. I think almost everyone has. Sad when a promising player can't stay on the field. It has to be incredibly frustrating.

The folks on NFLN said the Chargers should get Michael Turner back. Might be an interesting idea if this kid can't carry the full load.

You mean "when" he can't.

Not a chance. Turner is WAY beyond washed up.

The Chargers continue to auger into the ground. They should have kept AJ Smith and Norv Turner for another year. At least they created better non-stories....

I'm feelin kinda stupid here. The police report was false yet they're talking about him staying out of trouble? Is there a history with him that I'm not aware of? If there isn't then either I'm an idiot or this article was just a waste of intern space.

I hadn't thought of that, but I'll bet you're right about that.

This is what happen when you reach for a RB at 12 in the first round. He rused for 707 yards and averaged 3.8 yards/carry last season, that's below replacement level.
