Per Kevin Acee, San Diego Chargers WR Vincent Brown will be out approximately eight weeks after breaking his ankle in Saturday night's game 28-20 win over the Dallas Cowboys. He will undergo surgery tomorrow.
Brown appeared to land awkwardly on his ankle after catching an 18-yard pass from QB Charlie Whitehurst. With his foot elevated, Brown was carted off the field. Prior to his injury, Brown had 2 catches for 32 yards on the night.
After a strong college career at San Diego State, Brown was drafted by the Charges in the third round of the 2011 draft. In the 2011 season, he played in 14 games for the Bolts and amassed 329 yards on 19 receptions.
Going into training camp, he was expected to take the place of former Charger Vincent Jackson and was thought to be out-playing current veteran WR Robert Meachem. Coach Norv Turner was quoted as saying, "He’s in the middle of having an outstanding training camp, and he obviously is a playmaker, so he’s a guy that’s going to figure real strongly in what we do."
