    Chargers' Donald Brown: Ready to pitch in

    Brown, who has only been active for two of eight games this season, is ready to step into Branden Oliver's backup role, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Brown's name had been mentioned as a possible trade target before Oliver's season-ending injury, but he is now in the mix for playing time for the Bolts. San Diego features Melvin Gordon on early downs and Danny Woodhead in passing situations, but Brown will serve as the primary backup to both guys, and he is now just one more injury away from seeing significant playing time. Brown is familiar with the Chargers system and is an adept blocker, so the team will not hesitate to use them whenever necessary.
