Casey Hayward has emerged as the Bolts' top corner, while Trevor Williams and Craig Mager have taken over as the Nos. 2 and 3 cover men. Flowers turns 31 in February, and San Diego can save $7 million by cutting him in 2017.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Flowers has been out since suffering a concussion Week 10 against the Dolphins, and it does not look like he is on track to return this week. With a long and scary history with concussions, it would not be surprising if Flowers sat out the rest of the season. Trevor Williams saw a bump in snaps with Flowers out Week 12.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) returned to a full practice on Wednesday.

That puts Flowers on track to play Sunday against Denver. He'll be returning from a four-game absence. Having him back should give the Chargers' secondary a big boost. Only eight teams have allowed more passing yards per game than San Diego this year.

Chargers slot CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Falcons.

It's a slight upgrade to the matchup for Mohamed Sanu, who saw ten targets last week. In a likely high-scoring affair between the Chargers and Falcons, Sanu is worth a look as a WR4/flex play in PPR leagues.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) is out for Week 6 against the Broncos.

Flowers had little chance of suiting up this week with San Diego hosting the Broncos on Thursday night. He remains in the league's concussion protocol. With Flowers sidelined and Jason Verrett (ACL) on injured reserve, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders should be in for big weeks.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Flowers and Jason Verrett out last week, the Raiders receiving duo of Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree combined for 9-185-2 against a depleted San Diego secondary. Casey Hayward has been fantastic this year, but struggled some in Week 5, including allowing a 20-yard score to Crabtree late in the game. Emmanuel Sanders leads the league in red-zone targets with 12, while Demaryius Thomas ranks towards the top of the league in FPs per target. Both are perfectly suitable GPP targets in Week 6.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has yet to resume practicing.

He appears poised to miss his third straight game on Thursday. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be running relatively free in San Diego.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Slow to recover from his concussion, Flowers will miss his second straight game after not practicing all week. The Chargers will be without two of their top-three cornerbacks following the loss of Jason Verrett (ACL surgery). This is good news for the fantasy matchups of Derek Carr and his wide receivers.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) is out for Week 4.

It's an upgrade to Willie Snead's matchup, assuming Snead (toe) plays. Flowers has been covering the slot between Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward.

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers suffered a concussion in Week 3.

He took a knee to the helmet late in the game and didn't return. The Chargers have the high-scoring Saints on deck, so they will need Flowers. Flowers has been enjoying a bounce-back season following a dreadful 2015 campaign.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers said he's 10-12 pounds lighter than he was at this point last year.

Flowers got complacent after signing a four-year, $36-million deal last offseason, showing up to OTAs overweight and struggling through a career-worst season. "I had a dad bod coming in last year," said Flowers. "I started off bad last year, and it just kept on going downhill." Impressed by teammate Melvin Ingram's physical transformation, Flowers got serious about his conditioning by working with Miami-based trainer David Alexander. "Last year was unacceptable," said Flowers. "I knew what kind of place I was in last year, and I just can’t go back to where I was." Flowers earned PFF's third-worst cornerback grade out of 111 qualifiers in 2015.

Chargers placed CB Brandon Flowers (knee) on injured reserve.

It ends a highly-ineffective season for Flowers, who was one of the league's worst corners when healthy. He'll be replaced by Patrick Robinson opposite Jason Verrett. Due a $9.75M cap hit in 2016, Flowers is a candidate for offseason restructure. The Chargers promoted QB Brad Sorensen and activated DE Darius Philon in corresponding moves.
