Rivers said Mathews has "shown that toughness all year long. Obviously, this injury has lingered on and kind of came on the last few weeks, but he's been tough for us all year long. As a running back you battle all kind of nicks and bumps and bruises. I've been happy for him and us that he didn't have to deal with a fluke collarbone deal or things that you can't battle through, and then he gets an ankle. He's battling through it though."
