Chargers WR Vincent Brown out eight weeks with broken ankle

San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Brown @VincentBrown86 suffered a broken left ankle during Saturday's preseason win over the Dallas Cowboys. While hauling in an 18-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, Brown went down and was carted off. The penciled-in starters at wide receiver for San Diego should be Robert Meachem, Malcom Floyd and Eddie Royal @EddieRoyalWR in the slot.

Fantasy Analysis:

With Brown out for nearly half the season, this is a death blow to his fantasy status. After a solid rookie year in 2011, the second-year wideout out of San Diego State was poised to take a big step forward and see a definite increase in playing time. This injury puts that potential to bed and Brown should be limited to dynasty rosters only. The Chargers hope to have him back by Week 6, but he'll also need time to rehab his injury and get his leg back in shape.
