According to Kevin Acee, Vincent Brown could be back in the second half of the season and the Chargers will keep him on the 53-man roster. This reminds me of what the Chargers did with Luis Castillo last season. Brown will take a roster spot, but he will not be available to play till later in the season (hopefully).
Brown had surgery on his left ankle today. There may have been some slight ligament damage, but the recovery time still has not been specified. When he does return, we don’t know how effective he will be this season. Hope surgery went well and that he can still make big things happen this season.
Expectation is that Vincent Brown can play second half of season. May have been slight ligament damage. Chargers likely keep him on roster.
