Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers (concussion) practiced on Wednesday.

Like Malcom Floyd, Flowers suffered a brain injury in last Sunday's win over Cleveland. Flowers will likely need to pass a few more steps in the NFL's concussion protocol in order to receive clearance for Monday night.
Oct 7 - 4:31 PM

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers left Sunday's Week 4 game with a concussion.

He's done for the day.
Oct 4 - 6:49 PM

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

Flowers was a surprise inactive last week, but it looks like he is on track to return against the Browns. Jason Verrett (foot) was also a full participant on Wednesday after playing limited snaps Week 3.
Oct 1 - 10:25 AM

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers (knee) is inactive for Week 3 against the Vikings.

It's a surprise after he was listed as "probable" on the injury report. RCB Jason Verrett (foot) is active. Flowers should be considered week to week.
Sep 27 - 11:44 AM

Chargers reached an agreement on a four-year, $36M contract with CB Brandon Flowers.

The talented Flowers was an awful fit for Bob Sutton's press-man scheme with the Chiefs in 2013, which allowed the Chargers to land him cheaply one year ago. He proceeded to flourish, grading out as a top-15 corner in PFF's ranks. It's a nice re-signing by the Chargers, who can pair Flowers and Jason Verrett together for the next few years. Throw in safety Eric Weddle and they have the core of a very formidable secondary.
Mar 8 - 4:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers are close to re-signing free agent CB Brandon Flowers.

The Chargers have been in talks with Flowers, and the expectation is that a deal will get done. A top-15 corner by PFF last year, Flowers would be one of top options available on the open market. With Shareece Wright a free agent, San Diego will have a major need opposite Jason Verrett if Flowers doesn't return.
Mar 7 - 6:43 PM

Free agent CB Brandon Flowers said he hopes to re-sign with the Chargers.

Flowers said he was in negotiations with San Diego, but admitted he's likely to test free agency before finalizing a deal. This isn't a particularly strong class for cornerbacks, so Flowers should land a pretty lucrative deal on the open market. He was a top-15 corner in PFF's grades last season.
Mar 5 - 12:23 PM

The Dolphins have "internally discussed" free agent CBs Brandon Flowers and Kareem Jackson.

Both Flowers and Jackson serve as outside corners in their base defense and can cover the slot in sub-packages. So it may be telling that these two types of corners are on the Dolphins' radar. Miami is expected to cut Cortland Finnegan soon, and will be a player on the free agent cornerback market.
Mar 1 - 2:14 PM

Chargers LCB Brandon Flowers briefly left Week 16 against the 49ers with a right ankle injury.

Flowers had his ankle stepped on by a teammate at the end of a second-quarter run. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but did not re-enter the game in the first half. He was able to return after the break.

Brandon Flowers (concussion) has resumed practicing.

Flowers is now on track to return against the Dolphins. It's good news for the Chargers with Jason Verrett (shoulder) already ruled out for Week 9. Flowers is in the midst of a nice bounce-back season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 corner through the season's first eight weeks.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (concussion) will not play in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Fellow CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) is questionable, obviously an awful time for San Diego to be banged up in the secondary. Richard Marshall and Shareece Wright are potential starters as Peyton Manning licks his chops. The Chargers will also be without ILB Manti Te'o (foot), OLB Jeremiah Attaochu (hamstring), RB Donald Brown (concussion) and RB Ryan Mathews (knee).

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers was forced from San Diego's Week 7 game against the Chiefs with a concussion, and will not return.

Flowers put a huge second-quarter hit on Jamaal Charles at the goal-line, but ended up taking the worst of it. Amazingly, Flowers was briefly allowed to continue playing before being pulled. He was officially ruled out in the third quarter.

Chargers CB Brandon Flowers (groin) is active for Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Flowers, who has been playing at an extremely high level this season, gets to face his former team. Fellow CB Jason Verrett (shoulder) is inactive. Verrett is week to week. Also inactive for the Chargers are RB Ryan Mathews, RB Donald Brown, ILB Manti Te'o, WR Dontrelle Inman, DT Ricardo Mathews and OLB Jeremiah Attaochu.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 02:40:00 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego reports CB Brandon Flowers' groin injury is considered "not too bad."

Flowers also dealt with a groin injury in Week 2. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Shareece Wright (knee) would replace Flowers opposite Jason Verrett.
