Donald Brown RB SD 30 Days

Brown (concussion) practiced Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Brown's status for Sunday's game against the Dolphins is still cloudy, but his return to practice Wednesday is clearly a step in the right direction for the running back, who last saw game action in Week 5. With Ryan Mathews iffy this week and the team on bye in Week 10, the Chargers may continue to feature Branden Oliver on Sunday, with an eye toward having an intact backfield on hand in Week 11.

Brown (concussion) is not practice Tuesday, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Brown missed last weekend's game due to a concussion and since he still hasn't been cleared to practice, he seems doubtful to be ready for Thursday's game versus Denver. As a result, Branden Oliver will likely maintain his role as the Chargers' top running back.

Brown (concussion) has yet to practice this week, and according to Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune it appears doubtful that the running back will play Sunday against the Raiders.

We'll revisit Brown's status Friday, but in the event that he is unable to play this weekend, Branden Oliver would figure to see the bulk of the Chargers' Week 6 carries, with Ronnie Brown and Shaun Draughn also on hand in serve in reserve/complementary roles.
