News: Flowers (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the Chargers' official site reports.
Impact: The return of Flowers, who the San Diego Union-Tribune expects to start Sunday's game, will provide a welcome boost to the Chargers' secondary, with fellow cornerback Jason Verrett out indefinitely with a shoulder injury.
News: Brown (concussion) practiced fully again Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, the Chargers' official site reports.
Impact: Brown is thus poised to return to a San Diego backfield that will be without Ryan Mathews once again Sunday, though in his anticipated return, a likely outcome is that he works in a complementary role along with Branden Oliver this weekend, a scenario that make Brown a Week 9 dart for those in deeper formats.
News: Mathews (knee) was a limited participant in practice Fiday, but he is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Impact: With regard to the status of Mathews, who last suited up on Sept. 14, coach Mike McCoy said, "he's getting close." For his part, Gehlken suggests that barring a setback, it would "be a shock" if the running back isn't available for the Chargers' Nov. 16 game against the Raiders, which follows the team's Week 10 bye.
