Chargers LB Jatavis Brown (ankle) is inactive for the 2nd straight game. LB Denzel Perryman (ankle) is once again active. Both entered the day questionable. Perryman barely played despite being active in Week 1, and Brown isn't likely to enter the starting lineup even when he's healthy. We'll see if the Chargers alter their LB playing time at all, but these situations looked irrelevant in Week 1.
Chargers LB Denzel Perryman is questionable for Sunday's opener against the Colts because of an ankle injury. He put in limited practices all week, which would suggest he's a decent bet to play. Perryman hasn't been an every-snap LB even when healthy though and makes for just a middling IDP option. LB Jatavis Brown is doubtful for the game after missing practice all week with his own ankle injury. It's not clear how much that matters, though. The team website lists Thomas Davis and Uchenna Nwosu as starters next to MLB Perryman. Various injuries have kept us from being able to confirm that via preseason action. This is a situation to avoid for now in most IDP leagues.
The Chargers have ruled out LB Jatavis Brown for Sunday's game against the Ravens because of an ankle injury. That leaves the Chargers' LB corps with no one worth trusting in most IDP lineups. It adds upside to S Adrian Phillips and S Derwin James, though.
The Chargers will be without LB Jatavis Brown (groin) and LB Kyzir White (knee) for today's game against the Browns. That leaves the defense down to its #3 weak-side LB, with only Denzel Perryman as an IDP option in the LB corps.
The Chargers plan to start Denzel Perryman at weak-side LB in his return from IR this week against Jacksonville, with LB Hayes Pullard continuing to play the middle, according to Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News. That would leave Jatavis Brown out of the lineup after his playing time dipped to 25% before the Week 9 bye. Brown's fine to drop in IDP leagues if you haven't already. Pullard looks like the guy to use if you need 1 this week, and then we'll see about everyone's usage going forward.
Chargers LB Jatavis Brown is active for today's game against the Raiders. An ankle injury that cut his playing time in half last week continued to limit his practice time. Brown did participate more this week than last, though, and is OK to use as a lower-level IDP starter.
Chargers LB Jatavis Brown (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. He played just 50% of the snaps last week against the Giants but then put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday before a full workout Friday. There's some risk vs. the usual level of Brown, but he's worth pushing into IDP lineups this week.
Chargers OLB Jatavis Brown (ankle) is active for today's game against the Giants. He'll certainly carry durability risk but is also too good for most IDP owners to sit when available. The Chargers also made MLB Korey Toomer a healthy scratch for the 1st time this season. That leaves more snaps available for Hayes Pullard, who has outplayed Toomer to this point.
Chargers LB Jatavis Brown is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants because of a foot injury. He returned to a limited practice after missing the 1st 2 days and opening the week in a walking boot. We'll update Brown's status Sunday morning.
Chargers LB Jatavis Brown hurt his right foot in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He played through the issue in that game but was in a protective boot Monday, according to ESPN's Eric D. Williams. HC Anthony Lynn said he doesn't expect Brown to practice Wednesday, but Brown said he expects to play Sunday against the Giants. We'll keep an eye on his participation Thursday and Friday to try to gauge the risk in using him for Week 5 IDP lineups.
Chargers ILB Jatavis Brown (knee) is active for today's game against the Panthers. We don't know whether he'll return to a full-time role or rotate with Korey Toomer -- who has started in his place the past 4 games -- and regular fellow starter Denzel Perryman. The uncertainty lowers the IDP floor for Brown and Toomer. Perryman commonly plays 50-60% of the snaps, so his outlook goes unchanged.
Chargers ILB Jatavis Brown (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game at Carolina. He put in limited practices all week after missing the past 4 games. It's tough to know whether he will jump right back to an every-down role if he's active against Carolina or rotate in with Denzel Perryman and Korey Toomer. We'll keep an eye out for word, but the uncertainty makes all 3 risky IDP options. Toomer has been filling in at Brown's spot and would likely see at least a significant decrease in playing time if Brown's active Sunday.
The Chargers have ruled LB Jatavis Brown (knee) and CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Texans. That leaves Korey Toomer starting next to LB Denzel Perryman, who's ready to return from his hamstring injury. Perryman's a halftime player when healthy, so we'd bet on Toomer retaining a 3-down role and a solid IDP profile this week.
The Chargers have ruled LB Jatavis Brown (knee) and LB Denzel Perryman (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That again leaves Korey Toomer as the only San Diego ILB worth your IDP attention. He tied for the team lead in snaps played last week. OLB Melvin Ingram was the team's only other LB to crack 40% playing time.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that Chargers ILB Jatavis Brown will likely miss "a week or two" after suffering a knee injury in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. That might make fellow rookie Joshua Perry and former Raiders practice-squad member Korey Toomer the starters Sunday against the Titans. That's because LB Denzel Perryman also left the Week 8 game with a hamstring injury after just 8 plays. We'll see about Perryman's status this week, as well as what we might learn about the roles for whoever plays ILB in San Diego in Week 9.
Chargers ILB Denzel Perryman put in a limited practice Wednesday after leaving the Week 4 loss to the Saints early with a shoulder injury. That would seem to point to him playing against the Raiders this Sunday. We'll keep an eye on Perryman's status. Rookie Jatavis Brown will remain the top LB play in San Diego, though, regardless of whether Perryman's ready to start.
