Vincent Brown feeling better, but still no timetable for return: Fantasy implications

Stephen Dunn

Vincent Brown reportedly ran well Thursday, and says he feels "real good" as he continues his recovery from a broken ankle suffered before the Chargers' season began. We break down the fantasy implications.

Vincent Brown says he feels "real good" after running well Thursday, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Brown suffered a broken ankle in August, and has yet to appear in a game this season for the San Diego Chargers.

Brown was placed on injured reserve in September, but with a designation that allows him to return later in the season. There is apparently still no timetable for his return, however.

Fantasy Impact: Brown has been vaporware since being draft in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He appeared in 14 games last season, but was limited with a litany of injuries. For his career, Brown has 19 catches for 329 yards and two touchdowns.

When healthy, Brown has the potential to a solid contributor in what has otherwise been an underwhelming receiving corps this season, despite the additions of Robert Meachem and Eddie Royal. We'll have to wait and see whether Brown plays this year, but at this point that's not safe bet.
