  Chargers | Donald Brown participates fully    Thu Oct 30, 04:10 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) practiced fully Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Brown will split time with Branden Oliver this week. We're good with starting Oliver as a RB2, but we don't want Brown anywhere near our lineup.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews likely to sit    Thu Oct 30, 09:49 AM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) is likely to sit out of the Week 9 game and return after the Week 10 bye.

Footballguys view: Brandon Oliver has been playing well, last week notwithstanding, so there is no rush to bring Mathews back. They'll rest him a little longer to keep him fresh for a potential playoff run. Mathews is in a contract year, so sitting has got to be killing him. It's not impossible to believe he won't be back next year, especially with how Oliver is playing. Oliver should be a solid RB2 this week against Miami, by the way.

  Chargers | Donald Brown a full go    Wed Oct 29, 04:09 PM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Brown should be back this week for the Chargers, but fantasy owners don't need to rush out and get him in the lineup. Ryan Mathews will be back in the near future, and rookie Branden Oliver has carved out a significant role no matter how many RBs are healthy for the team.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews back in Week 9?    Fri Oct 24, 09:44 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) missed his sixth consecutive game in Week 8 Thursday, Oct. 23, against the Denver Broncos, but he could return to practice as early as Monday, Oct. 27. However, Mathews is nearing a return and unlikely to miss more than one additional game, if that. Mathews worked out before the game Thursday, and his right knee was stable and he appeared conditioned.

Footballguys view: This situation should be monitored by fantasy owners. When Mathews returns, the team might choose to ease him in the lineup. He should return as the starter, but Branden Oliver has done enough to carve out a Danny Woodhead-like role upon Mathews' return.

  Chargers | Donald Brown might practice soon    Fri Oct 24, 09:42 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) missed his third straight game in Week 8 Thursday, Oct. 23, against the Denver Broncos, but he might be able to return to practice Monday, Oct. 27.

Footballguys view: Even if/when Brown returns, we feel that Branden Oliver has done enough to carve out a role....and likely a larger role than Brown is going to get.

  Chargers | Jason Verrett to meet with specialist    Fri Oct 24, 06:15 PM

San Diego Chargers CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) will meet with a specialist next week to determine the severity of the shoulder injury he suffered in Week 8.

Footballguys view: This is not a good sign for Brown. The Chargers have a short week as they play the Broncos on Thursday night. It looks like we'll see Branden Oliver and Ronnie Brown in the backfield for the Chargers in Week 8.

Footballguys view: The Chargers want to be as near full strength as possible when going up against the Broncos. Losing Flowers for this week won't help.

  Chargers | Ladarius Green not involved    Mon Oct 20, 04:29 PM

San Diego Chargers TE Ladarius Green hasn't seen his role expand this year after head coach Mike McCoy expected him to earn a much bigger role in the offense in the offseason. Green wasn't thrown to at all in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs after being featured extensively against them last year.

Footballguys view: The Chargers barely had the ball against the Chiefs. We'll see if they can get Green more involved on Thursday night against the Broncos.

San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) missed practice again Thursday, Oct. 16.

  Chargers | Keenan Allen off injury report    Thu Oct 16, 04:18 PM

San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen (hamstring) was not listed on the team's injury report Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Allen is definitely in a sophomore slump with these injuries/inconsistencies, which makes him a WR3 with risk. Disappointing as that is, Malcom Floyd is playing well though and is worth a look as a low end WR3.

  Chargers | Ryan Mathews remains sidelined    Thu Oct 16, 12:51 AM

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews (knee) continues to rehab from a Sept. 14 injury to his right knee, but he will not play in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and it might not be Week 8 against the Denver Broncos in a game Thursday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: That keeps Brandon Oliver as a high-end RB2 this week. We'll be curious to see how this plays out long term with Mathews in the final year of his contract. While he has been productive at times, he's also spent way too much time on the trainers table.
