Chargers’ RB Mathews has nose cauterized

SAN DIEGO – Chargers running back Ryan Mathews has had his nose cauterized in an uncomfortable procedure he says should eliminate nosebleeds that have plagued him during his career.

The rookie has dealt with football-related bloody noses since high school. Dry heat adds to the problem, and a combination of an arid climate and full contact on Saturday night caused Mathews’ nose to bleed during an exhibition game against the Dallas Cowboys.

He got hit hard near the goal line, driving his helmet back into his nose. Mathews’ nose started bleeding, which sidelined him for most of a series late in the first half.



Mathews missed practice Tuesday but recovered in time to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the San Diego Padres’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
