San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) will not be able to play in Week 6.

Week 12: vs St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Ryan Mathews returned to give the Chargers a respectable rushing attack against the Oakland Raiders last week, knocking off some rust from his long layoff as he put up 16/70/0 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving during the contest. Backup Branden Oliver posted 13/36/0 rushing with 1/3/0 receiving in a complimentary role. Mathews was reported to limp in the locker room after the game, but there is no indication from the team that he took any sort of significant injury against the Raiders. We'll see what he can do in this contest against a surging St. Louis D. The Rams shocked the world by holding the Broncos to seven points last week - they only gave up 10/28/0 rushing to the Broncos during the game, after limiting Arizona to 22/28/1 rushing two games ago. Forget the season averages - the Rams' defensive front has suddenly asserted dominance in this phase of the game. Mathews and Oliver face a bad matchup in this game.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs MIA (4 / 23 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Brown had a couple of decent runs late in the fourth quarter during "garbage time" with the game already completely out of reach. But perhaps his biggest play of the game wasn't something he did well but rather a missed opportunity. Streaking down the right sideline, Rivers hit him perfectly in stride on the run for what should have been a huge gain. But he dropped the pass, leading to yet another San Diego punt.

2014 Week 11 vs OAK (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

The Chargers picked a curious time to get Brown his first rushing attempt. After 58 minutes of very minimal work in the passing game, the Chargers had a 3rd and 5 that, if converted, would have ended the game. Instead, Brown was stuffed for no gain on a very critical play.

Chargers | Donald Brown puts in full practice (Wed Nov 12, 04:17 PM) - San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Our View: Brown isn't much of a fantasy factor at this point of the year--especially with starting RB Ryan Mathews likely coming back from a nine-week absence due to a knee injury.
