SAN DIEGO (AP) - Chargers running back Ryan Mathews missed practice Thursday because of an injured left foot, a setback coming on the heels of what coach Norv Turner felt was his best game as a pro.

Mathews ran 21 times for 98 yards and two touchdowns, and had four receptions for 51 yards in a 20-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Mathews says he plans to practice Friday and thinks he’ll be ready to go Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Mathews had limited work Wednesday.

Also missing practice were defensive end Jacques Cesaire (knee), receivers Vincent Jackson (abdomen) and Malcom Floyd (groin), cornerback Quentin Jammer (hamstring) and tight end Antonio Gates (foot). The likelihood of Gates playing on Sunday has decreased significantly.
