San Diego Chargers RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring) missed practices Wednesday and Thursday was limited Friday. He is questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: If you're hoping to have Brown this week, it's not looking good. Meanwhile, Jackie Battle's fantasy owners stand to benefit most. Check back before Sunday afternoon just to make sure.

San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner didn't reveal his plans at running back in Week 16 after RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) was placed on the Injured Reserve. 'Well, we've got a chance to get Ronnie Brown back' Turner said. 'Jackie Battle will get a chance to play. And Brink (Curtis Brinkley ) played some yesterday, though I don't know that he would play on third down. And we'll probably add Edwin Baker to the 53-man roster. I don't know that he would be active, but we'd have to see where Ronnie Brown is.' Brown was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday.
Huddle Up: Mathews' fantasy owners or those desperate enough to be eyeing a Chargers' back in Week 16 will have to play the waiting game and see how Brown is coming along later in the week.

San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner said there is a chance RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring) will be able to play Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Ryan Mathews lost for the season, a healthy Brown would be the logical replacement. If Brown misses a second straight week, though, look for Curtis Brinkley and Jackie Battle to share the RB duties in Week 16.

San Diego Chargers RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring), LB Donald Butler (groin), OT Jeromey Clary (knee) and OG Tyronne Green (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Dec. 14, and are doubtful for Week 15.
Huddle Up: There aren't likely many fantasy GMs counting on Brown, but on the flip side, this is a bit of welcome news for Ryan Mathews' fantasy owners, who haven't had a whole lot of it this season.

San Diego Chargers' RB Ronnie Brown (hamstring), LB Donald Butler (groin), OT Jeromey Clary (knee), OG Tyronne Green (hamstring) and LB Demorrio Williams (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Brown has been getting steady work -- most of it on third down -- and if he's limited or can't go Sunday, Ryan Mathews will be in line for more touches against the Panthers. Sure, Mathews has been a deep disappointment, but more work against the league's sixth-worst fantasy run defense could be a recipe for a surprise showing.

San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner indicated Sunday, Aug. 12, that the team will use a running back by committee approach until RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) is healthy enough to return. 'Right now, it'd probably be a mix' between RBs Ronnie Brown, Le'Ron McClain and Curtis Brinkley.
Huddle Up: San Diego lost Mike Tolbert in the offseason, had no apparent interest in adding free-agent Cedric Benson, who signed with the Packers on Sunday, and are content to go with what it has while Mathews heals. If that's the case, and Mathews doesn't return until Week 3 or so, the Chargers' RB situation figures to be too muddled early in the season to have much fantasy value.

San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner said Friday, Aug. 10, that he did not anticipate the team bringing in a running back with RB Ryan Mathews (clavicle) sidelined four to six weeks. That means RBs Jackie Battle, Curtis Brinkley, Ronnie Brown and FB Le'Ron McClain are likely to shoulder the load during the remaining preseason games.
Huddle Up: This is a good sign about their hopes for Mathews to recover soon and not need more help. When Ronnie Brown was in Philly last year, they felt he had lost a step so temper any expectation what Brown will do whether Mathews is there or not.
