Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Struggles to repeat production in second year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown could be on the roster bubble for the 2018 season following a disappointing 2017 campaign, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.

Williams couched his commentary by saying the Chargers need to figure out a way to "take advantage of Brown's unique skill set," so it seems likely the 23-year-old linebacker will be around for at least another season. In any case, it's a surprise that Brown's return to the Chargers next season isn't considered a foregone conclusion, given that he's only one year removed from a scintillating rookie campaign in which he recorded 79 tackles and 3.5 sacks in just 12 games. However, Brown failed to adapt to new defensive coordinator Gus Bradley's system in 2017, eventually falling behind Denzel Perryman, Korey Toomer and Nick Dzubnar in the pecking order at inside linebacker. While Brown still registered 79 tackles this season, 36 of those came in the first three weeks with Perryman sidelined due to an ankle injury. Brown will have to impress coaches in the offseason if he wants to have any hope of earning back a starting role in 2018.

Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (abdomen) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Brown was all over the field on Saturday for the Chargers, registering eight tackles, but seemed to suffer an abdominal injury in the process. Given his full participation Thursday, the linebacker should be ready to go Sunday against the Jets.

Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown was a limited participant at the Chargers' practice Wednesday with an abdomen injury.

Brown tied for the team lead with eight tackles in Saturday's loss to the Chiefs and played 33 of 66 defensive snaps, also a team high among linebackers. The 23-year-old will have interesting IDP appeal this week with Denzel Perryman (hamstring) ruled out, assuming Brown is able to avoid setback.

Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Registers eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Saturday's 30-13 loss to the Chiefs.

After three straight weeks in which Brown played more snaps on special teams then on defense, the second-year linebacker exploded onto the scene to tie with safety Adrian Phillips for the game-high in tackles. If starting inside linebacker Denzel Perryman, who left Saturday's game with a strained tendon in his hamstring, were to miss additional time, Brown would instantly become an intriguing IDP option.

Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Left off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) wasn't on Wednesday's injury report, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Brown has been nursing this injury for more than two weeks, but it looks as if he may be fully recovered. He's been limited in the Chargers' past two games, and it remains to be seen whether he'll have a full workload Sunday against the Broncos.
