Vincent Brown WR SD 22 Hrs

Brown, who was originally sidelined when he strained a calf musled on July 25, is still not practicing, the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

At the start of training camp, Brown was working as the fourth receiver, behind Keenan Allen, Eddie Royal and Malcom Floyd. With Brown not playing, Dontrelle Inman and Seyi Ajirotutu have rotated into the fourth and fifth spots. The third preseason game is traditionally the most important, and Brown will not be playing again. While it would still be a shock if he got cut, this is definitely not good news for him.

Brown, who has already missed one exhibition game and might miss another, is in danger of dropping to the end of the depth chart, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

There has been some rumbling that Brown could actually get cut if he doesn't perform soon, but that would be a major surprise because he played well at times last season and is already familiar with the offense. Still, Dontrelle Inmam and Seyi Ajirotutu have been looking good in camp, so Brown needs to get on the field and remind the Bolts of what he is capable of doing sooner rather than later.

Vincent Brown is likely to be the Chargers' No. 4 receiver this year.

As beat writer Michael Gehlken notes, Brown "can play any wide receiver spot" in San Diego's offense. He's likely to serve as a utilityman behind "Z" receiver Keenan Allen, "X" Malcom Floyd, and slot man Eddie Royal. Brown flopped in a chance at a major role last season. His Dynasty league value is minimal.

Vincent Brown was held catch-less in the Wild Card round.

Brown has faceplanted in his first fully-healthy NFL season, playing poorly throughout 2013 and ultimately losing his starting job to Eddie Royal. It would be a surprise if Brown made any impact on San Diego's postseason run.

Vincent Brown was held catch-less on one target in San Diego's Week 17 overtime loss to Kansas City.

Brown's 2013 season was his first ever as a fully healthy player, but highly disappointing. Philip Rivers showed little confidence in the former third-round draft pick due to blown routes and inconsistent physicality. Because Brown lacks blazing speed and explosiveness, he needs to be a receiver who wins contested passes. And he didn't do that enough in 2013, getting severely outplayed by Keenan Allen. Brown finishes with a 41-471-1 line in 16 games, starting 13. The Chargers may look to upgrade on him in 2014.

Vincent Brown had two catches for 38 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Raiders.

He was targeted five times in the passing game. Brown drew a pass interference call that set up a four-yard touchdown to Keenan Allen in the third quarter and nearly had a 30-yard catch down the left sideline but couldn't stay in bounds. He hasn't been a factor as the Chargers' No. 2 wideout this season and will enter Week 17 with just 41 catches, 472 yards, and one touchdown.

Vincent Brown caught three passes for 54 yards in San Diego's Week 15 win over the Broncos.

Brown's 54 yards actually led the team on a night were San Diego dialed up only 19 passes, mustering 166 yards through the air. Embarrassingly for the summer sleeper, Brown's 54 yards were his second most of the season. He'll remain off the fantasy radar for Week 16.

Vincent Brown was held to one catch for 16 yards in San Diego's Week 13 loss to the Bengals.

The one-catch afternoon came despite the fact that Eddie Royal (toe, chest) was inactive. Brown is now on pace for a hugely disappointing 44/467/1 stat-line. Simply not living up to the lofty expectations he set before missing the entire 2012 season with a broken ankle, Brown is not a must-hold in Dynasty leagues.
