San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is officially on notice from team general manager A.J. Smith for his continuing problems with fumbles, says the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Mathews, in his first game back from a broken clavicle, fumbled in the Chargers' loss Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons. It was his 11th fumble in his brief NFL career.

“I am very concerned, and it has to stop,” Smith said. “I believe you can improve in ball security. And no one works any harder in trying to get better than Ryan. However, if it continues he will play less.”
