    Has reared its ugly head again....

    Cory Liuget wearing protective boot on right foot. Finished practice yesterday after trainers checked on him. #Chargers

    ------------
    Vincent Brown is doing about everything at Chargers Park, playing with teammates aside.

    That noticeable limitation will continue for sometime.

    The wide receiver did not practice Thursday, making it a full week he's been sidelined with a calf strain. Brown suffered it July 25 on the second day of training camp when running a route during a position drill. It expectedly will force him to miss the Aug. 7 exhibition opener against the Cowboys, and possibly longer, as a tight competition at receiver continues without him.

    Brown has watched every practice he's missed.

    He stood Thursday with a protective boot over his right foot.

    I can't imagine there is a player we can less afford to lose. We have ZERO depth on D-line right now, particularly DE.

    Vincent Brown and injury are being used in the same sentence waaaaaaay too often. This guy needs to GET AND STAY healthy! We need him!

    At this point I wouldn't be surprised or heart broken (tbh) to see Vincent Brown not on the roster on opening day,
    As long as Keenan Allen, Malcolm Floyd, Eddie Royal, Antonio Gates and Ladarius Green suit up and produce, we're good.

    It also sounds like Dontrell Inman and Tevin Reese are making the most out of their opportunities and looking great out there. It would be a shame to see one or both of these guys not make the team because the guy on the sideline automatically makes the team. But having said that it is a shame that he isn't out there competing because it is impossible to determine who really wins that 4th or 5th roster spot.

    I also think we're past the P.U.P. mark so the only ideal thing would be to I.R./designated to return him and hope for the best.

    Flowers missed his 3rd practice in a row today.:cautious: As usual McCoy offers no information.

    I'm hopeful its precautionary, Flowers is the type that tends to get nicked up a ton but rarely misses a game on Sunday

    These boots are made for walking and that's just what they'll do.
    Cause when the Turk comes creeping, your Bolt career will be through.

    Not the BOOT! I think I'm traumatized from the "minor injury" that forced Teo to wear the BOOT and miss a handful of games

    I would think so. But at this point I don't care much. Just get to September without any major injuries.

    I'm completley fine with limiting starters to 1 series, even in game 3.

    These boys just need to get through the preseason healthy instead of resembling a MASH unit on opening day. The defense looks weak with the starters they do have and the reserves appear to be a huge drop off.
