San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (leg) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list after he suffered a broken fibula during the team's Week 3 game.
Huddle Up: Donald Brown will now be the bell cow until Ryan Mathews returns. Once Mathews is back, Brown will take over Woodhead's pass catching role in San Diego's backfield.

With injuries to both RB Ryan Mathews (knee) and Danny Woodhead (ankle/leg), RB Branden Oliver could see more playing time going forward with the San Diego Chargers.
Huddle Up: Donald Brown isn't a full-workload kind of back, so with Ryan down at least a couple more weeks and Woodhead likely done for the season the Chargers will need someone to step up--and Oliver will get first crack at the gig.

Updating a previous report, San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead (ankle, leg) suffered a severe high ankle sprain and fractured fibula in the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills. A source said Sunday, Sept. 21, that season-ending surgery is likely.
Huddle Up: The Chargers will likely sign another RB this week but Donald Brown is in line for a heavy workload until Ryan Mathews returns. Brown is a strong RB2, then he'll take over Woodhead's pass catching role in San Diego's offense.

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead has signed a two-year contract extension. Financial terms were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Take it as a definite sign Woodhead still figures heavily in the Bolts' RB plans after logging career highs in both rushes (106) and receptions (76) last season. And with the Chargers signing free agent Donald Brown to a 3-year, $10.5 million deal this offseason, you have to really wonder about the S.D. future of Ryan Mathews, whose 4-year contract is up after this season.
