Donald Brown Returns to Practice


San Diego Chargers RB Donald Brown has returned to practice from the nasty concussion that he had a few weeks ago. 

Donald Brown was able to re-join the team in practice for the first time in weeks after suffering a nasty concussion against the New York Jets. He likely will be available to play against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. If he were to come back for that game, he would take the back seat to Branden Oliver in the starting lineup.

Not sure where he fits on the depth chart after that. Would he take the reps from Ronnie Brown when he gets back? Would he be the 3rd down back that is used to protect the quarterback or would he just be the backup to give Branden Oliver a breather?

Donald Brown didn’t show much when he was on the field earlier in the season. He will need to break some runs off in order to get more reps with the rest of the offense. He could easily be used in for the role that Ronnie Brown has at the moment. Ronnie has not done much for the team in his return, he mainly has been used to protect Philip Rivers and doesn’t offer much in the run game or in the passing attack any longer.
