Flowers likely is going through the league's concussion protocol, and his status will need to be monitored on a daily basis heading into Sunday. Should Flowers, whose 19 total tackles currently leads the team, be unable to go this weekend, Casey Hayward likely will take over starting cornerback duties.
Flowers picked up seven tackles (five solo) and knocked down one pass in the win over the Jaguars Sunday.
Once again, Flowers was near the top of the tackle totals, as once again the Chargers jumped out to an early lead, forcing their opponent to move the ball quickly through the air. Flowers has racked up an impressive amount of tackles (13 solo) through two weeks, but that number figures to level out as the Chargers find themselves in closer contests.
Flowers recorded eight solo tackles in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Flowers was kept busy on the outside as the Chiefs were forced to rally back from a large deficit through the air. While he didn't record a pass breakup or an interception, IDP owners have to be happy with his large tackle numbers. That figures to go down however, as the Chargers likely won't always be playing with a substantial lead.
Flowers failed to intercept a single pass last season, the first time he hasn't recorded at least one takeaway in his six-year career. Couple that with the fact that he registered just 33 tackles (29 solo), and it's fair to say Flowers is coming off his worst season as a pro. However, following an offseason in which the 30-year-old corner reportedly trimmed 10-12 pounds off his frame and appears completely healthy following a nagging knee injury that caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season, Flowers looks to be on the upswing heading into the new year. Even with Casey Hayward joining the secondary via free agency, Flowers is still expected to start opposite Jason Verrett and could be a good candidate to rebound should he stay healthy.
