The Chargers already lost two linebackers early on so far, now Danario Alexander is going to miss the entire season with a torn ACL. When injuries in any sport, any level, players are expected to step up and perform as if the job they were filling in, was theirs to begin with.
Brown missed seven camp practices this year with a hamstring strain after an injury plagued start of his professional football career.
Right now the Chargers are looking at Malcom Floyd, Vincent Brown, Eddie Royal, rookie Keenan Allen and Robert Meachem as their wide receivers. Although Brown expects to start opposite of Floyd, he will miss tomorrows pre-season opener.
Brown does have some solid competition behind him, having veterans Eddie Royal and Robert Meachem looking to possibly lock up that No. 2 receiver spot, along with rookie Keenan Allen. Him missing tomorrows game won’t help him out much, having to watch his competition on this roster, showing coaches how bad they want that vacant spot.
Brown caught 19 passes in 2011, for 329 yards and two touchdowns.
