Chargers welcome ‘awake’ Vincent Brown - Michael Gehlken (UT$)
"One of his many attributes, we always said, was how sharp he was," Philip Rivers said Wednesday. "He could play every position. … He hasn’t been here in this offense for some time, and then he’s out there today. I gave him a signal for something that we hadn’t really talked about. It’s the same signal we had when he was here. And he was like that."

Reich talks Gordon -- fumbles and return - Tom Krasovic (UT$)
"We play (several running backs) anyway. So, you just kind of keep rolling, and then you adjust as you go in a game. You get the feel for the game. You get a feel for the look in the guy's eyes, and how confident they're feeling. And then, you get a feel for what you're trying to do, and how you're going to try to win that game.

Mailbag: Could Danny Woodhead Win Comeback Player of the Year? - Ricky Henne
Danny Woodhead’s comeback season has flown a bit under the radar, which is to be expected with the team’s struggles.  Still, he hasn’t missed a beat in 2015.  Woodhead leads all NFL running backs with 593 receiving yards, is tied for second with three TD catches and ranks third with 53 receptions.  He leads the team with 848 yards from scrimmage, and is on pace to rack up a career-high 1,131 yards from scrimmage. That being said, while I think he deserves to be in consideration, Eric Berry I believe should hands down win the award with how he’s returned from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Key Matchups: Chargers at Chiefs - Ricky Henne
The team coughed it up three times last week and put it on the ground on two other occasions.  Two of the turnovers came in Denver territory while the Broncos returned the other for a pick-six.  Melvin Gordon had a pair of those fumbles (one recovered), and McCoy noted earlier this week that there will be a bullseye on the rookie running back as defenders target him to turn it over. Reich agreed with the head coach, explaining how that is always the case for a player after he struggles with protection.

Bob Iger believes NFL 'very serious' about Los Angeles move - Ramona Shelburne
Iger was making his first public comments since agreeing to serve as the non-executive chairman of Carson Holdings, the group overseeing the development and construction of a stadium in Carson where the Raiders and Chargers would both play if the proposal is approved by at least 24 of the NFL's 32 owners next month.
