Vincent Brown May Miss At Least 4 More Weeks

20121025-181748.jpg

So that is why we brought Danario Alexander onto the roster. Vincent Brown is not recovering as quickly as we had hoped and could miss another 4 weeks.

“[Brown] is continuing through his rehab and I think he is making good progress,” coach Norv Turner said. “He hasn’t obviously been able to practice. He is in the middle of rehab. So, what he is able to do, we will find out probably in the next month.” (via CBS Sports)

Alexander will be getting some valuable reps in practice and will get opportunities on offense. If he can stay healthy, he could be a nice weapon to have while Brown is out.

Brown is eligible to get back on the field, but still has not made that step. He still is in rehab and it will take him some time to get back up to game speed. He will need more time.

    Really looking forward to see Alexander and Floyd on the outside, Gates at TE Royal/Meach in the slot RM in the backfield and then a TD

      We’ve been looking forward to that all year. Unfortunately the reality is: RM on the bench, Rivers in the backfield with the opposing team’s defensive line, and open receivers with the ball under thrown for INTs

    That type of injury is difficult to repair; do not rush the kid (VB) back to play just so the Bolts can get some utility from him. I say sit out the remainder of the season, allow the repair to heal properly and then bring him back with a newly revamped Chargers squad for 2013. This kid could be a great player for many years to come and add greatly to the Bolts receiving corps. It will be interesting to see if A. J. himself makes the cut at the end of the season and/or will he deal VB out just to get a high round draft choice that he will fail to properly choose. This season looks like so many I have lived through in the past. Hopefully Dean Spanos will get it right one of these years and choose wisely someone who can properly manage the Chargers franchise.
