SAN DIEGO (AP) - The fading San Diego Chargers may get help from running back Ryan Mathews and linebacker Manti Te'o against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
Mathews and Te'o practiced Friday and are expected to play this weekend.
Mathews has been out since Sept. 14 with a sprained right knee. He's listed as probable for Sunday. Te'o, absent since the season's second week with a broken right foot, is probable.
The Chargers (5-4) are coming off their bye and trying to snap a three-game losing streak against the winless Raiders (0-9).
Linebacker Jerry Attaochu (hamstring), who has missed five of the past six games, is questionable.
Nose tackle Sean Lissemore (quad) is doubtful and hasn't worked since exiting the Chargers last game on Nov. 2. Center Rich Ohrnberger (back) didn't practice, but is probable for Sunday.
