Vincent Brown returned to practice Wednesday for the San Diego Chargers, according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Brown is currently on injured reserve due to an ankle injury, but was designated for return by the Chargers before the season began.
Brown is in just his second year in the NFL. He caught 19 passes for 329 yards and two touchdowns during his rookie year after being drafted in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He was expected to take on an expanded role within the Chargers' offense before being ruled out in training camp.
Fantasy Impact: The Chargers' receivers have struggled outside of Malcom Floyd and a late-blooming Danario Alexander, so there's plenty of room for Brown to make an impact when he returns. Unfortunately, he is unlikely to suit up this season, and shouldn't be considered a viable fantasy option if he does. Brown may be worth a late-round 2013 fantasy drafts, however.
