This is no surprise considering Brown has already been ruled out for the postseason due to an ankle injury he picked up in the regular-season finale against Denver. It's not clear when the linebacker is expected to be healthy again, or if he'll be limited when OTAs come around in late April. In any case, the ascending talent is under contract with Los Angeles for one more season after cranking out a career-high 97 tackles over 15 games in 2018.
Brown sustained an undisclosed ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Broncos, the severity of which will keep him sidelined throughout the upcoming postseason. Hayes Pullard is expected to draw the start at left outside linebacker in Brown's absence.
Brown (ankle) is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Hayes Pullard will continue to draw the start at left outside linebacker as long as Brown remains sidelined.
Brown is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Broncos due to an ankle injury.
Brown was carted to the locker room during the first half of Sunday's game, according to Sam Fortier of The Athletic. Hayes Pullard will slot into the starting lineup as long as Brown remains sidelined.
Brown tallied 11 tackles (six solo) in the 33-30 win over the Steelers on Sunday.
Brown has been incredibly productive since Denzel Perryman (knee/hamstring) went on IR in Week 10, accumulating double-digit tackle numbers in three of the past five games. As a result, the third-year linebacker appears poised to blow away his career-high in tackles (79) and may force the Chargers to seriously consider starting Brown at inside linebacker to begin next season's campaign.
