Texans signs RBs Ronnie Brown, William Powell


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) The Texans continued their makeover of the running back position Monday, signing veterans Ronnie Brown and William Powell, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The team released three running backs earlier Monday, including Andre Brown, who was thought to be the leader for the No. 2 role heading into camp. Ronnie Brown, 32, carried the ball 45 times for 157 yards (3.5 YPC) and one TD while catching eight passes for 60 yards last season with the Chargers. Powell, 26, didn't play last season after rushing for 216 yards on 59 carries in 2012.


Ronnie Brown makes four grabs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown caught four passes for 18 yards and ran once for zero yards in the playoff loss at Denver. He was targeted five times, second on the team.

Brown, 32, is an impending free agent.


Ryan Mathews unclear about Sunday status


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2014) Chargers running back Ryan Mathews said his "mindset" is to play Sunday against Denver despite missing all three practices this week, per the San Diego Union-Tribune, which reported that he looked gimpy on Friday.

His absence would give Ronnie Brown and Danny Woodhead work as the dual featured backs. Brown rushed for 77 yards on just eight carries in the Wild Card defeat of Cincinnati, but 59 of those yards were churned up on a touchdown run that clinched the victory.


Ronnie Brown could see expanded role


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown, who had a 58-yard touchdown run in the win at Cincinnati, could play a bigger role Sunday at Denver with starter Ryan Mathews nursing a bum ankle, reports ESPN.com. Brown finished with 77 yards on eight carries, adding a 9-yard catch.

"Ronnie Brown is a team favorite and a great teammate," quarterback Philip Rivers said, per the website. "He's so unselfish. He’s dressed so many games and not played. When he’s called on, you see why he was picked high in the draft and why he’s had a heck of a career. We’re glad we got him."


Ronnie Brown pulls off big play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown had the biggest play of the day for San Diego Sunday.

Brown broke out a 58 yard touchdown run late in the game, essentially putting the nail in the coffin for the Bengals. He finished the game with eight carries for 77 yards. Ryan Mathews injured his ankle in the third quarter, which allowed Brown to get more playing time than usual. He'll take on the Broncos next week.


Chargers get minor contributions in Week 14 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) The Chargers received minor contributions from several role players during Sunday's win over the Giants in Week 14.

In the running game, Le'Ron McClain saw only one carry for a gain of 1 yard. Running back Ronnie Brown chipped in with one catch for 13 yards. Tight Ladarius Green, who scored in back-to-back games, was held without a grab despite registering one target in a 37-14 victory.

Ronnie Brown gets some action Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown received some work Week 12 against the Chiefs.

Ryan Mathews left the game with an injured hamstring in the third quarter, and the team turned to Brown as their primary runner the rest of the way. Brown only received six carries, picking up 23 yards. The team opted to give Danny Woodhead a goal-line carry after Mathews left, which may have taken away a touchdown from Brown. Brown also caught one pass for -1 yards.

Brown will face off against the Bengals Week 13.


Ronnie Brown gets nine carries against Broncos


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown received nine carries against the Broncos Week 10.

Brown's work came early on, after Ryan Mathews was dinged on a long run. Brown had to finish off the team's first offensive drive, and then played the entire second series. Mathews was able to return, pushing Brown to the bench. He finished with 39 yards.

Brown will face the Dolphins Week 11.


Ronnie Brown, Le'Ron McClain held in check


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown and fullback Le'Ron McClain each registered a few backup carries during the Week 7 win at Jacksonville Sunday. 

Brown saw three carries for 14 yards in the game. He had a long run of 9 yards. McClain had two carries for 4 yards. Neither back scored. 

San Diego has a bye Week 8 and returns Week 9 at Washington. 


Chargers getting healthier


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) The Chargers had a lengthy injury report heading into Sunday's Week 7 game at Jacksonville. Fortunately, most of those injured players were listed as probable. Running back Ronnie Brown (ankle), defensive end Corey Liuget (shoulder), cornerback Richard Marshall (groin), cornerback Johnny Patrick (chest) and cornerback Shareece Wright (hamstring) are all active, as expected, for the game against the Jaguars. 

Chargers injury list filled with probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/18/2013) The Chargers released a long injury list on Friday, but the news wasn't that bad. Most of the players on it have been deemed probable for Sunday against the Jaguars.

They are running back Ronnie Brown (ankle), offensive lineman Jeromey Clary (clavicle), tackle D.J. Fluker (calf), defensive end Corey Liuget (shoulder), cornerback Richard Marshall (groin), cornerback Johnny Patrick (chest) and cornerback Shareece Wright (hamstring).

All were full participants in practice throughout the week but Clary and Brown, who were so on Thursday and Friday.


Not much expected from Ronnie Brown


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown has a chance to be a solid contributor on Sunday in the Week 7 game at Jacksonville. That is mostly because of how poor the Jaguars have been against the run.

Jacksonville has allowed the fifth-most Fantasy points per game this season to the opposition's running backs. They've surrendered six touchdowns to RBs and only the Rams have allowed more than the 712 yards they have given up on the ground.

That said, San Diego is blessed with Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead as options in the backfield. Brown rushed two times for 3 yards last week and gained 11 yards on seven carries the week prior. He can be a decent pass-catching option, but we just can't guarantee he'll do that much against the Jaguars.

Brown should only be used in the deepest of leagues as a flex option on Sunday.

Chargers get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2013) Several Chargers made small contributions in the Week 6 win over the Colts. Tight end Ladarius Green caught a 25-yard pass and receiver Eddie Royal had a 4-yard run.

Fullback Le'Ron McClain ran twice for 3 yards and caught a pass for minus-1 yard. Ronnie Brown carried twice for 3 yards.


Ronnie Brown not getting it done


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown had a great opportunity last week when Ryan Mathews left with a concussion. Brown squandered it, gaining 11 yards on seven carries and seeing Danny Woodhead score the team's rushing touchdown. Brown ended up playing 26 snaps to Woodhead's 46.  

Brown is averaging 3.1 yards per carry, worse than Woodhead's 3.7-yard average, and has six catches in five games. Brown is no lock to get goal-line carries either. Keep him on your bench Week 6 against the Colts.


Ronnie Brown ineffective runner in loss to Raiders


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2013) The Chargers are desperately seeking a spark to their ground game - and Ronnie Brown didn't give it to them Sunday night in Oakland.

He was part of the problem, not the solution with just 11 yards in seven carries for a disturbing 1.6 average. But he was no worse than his peers in the San Diego backfield, which combined for 32 yards rushing in 19 attempts against a heretofore mediocre Raiders run defense.

Brown, who has earned a reputation as a pass-catching back, did cash in on all three of his targets for 21 yards. He will try to provide more production as a runner next Monday night against the Colts.


Chargers get several minor contributions Week 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) The Chargers received minor offensive contributions from a few role players Week 4 against the Cowboys.

Fullback Le'Ron McClain was the team's third leading rusher with two carries for 11 yards, running back Ronnie Brown managed only one carry for a gain of seven yards. In the passing game, tight end John Phillips caught one pass for seven yards in a 30-21 victory.

Ronnie Brown contributes 1-yard touchdown run Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown contributed his first touchdown of the season during a 20-17 loss Week 3 at Tennessee. Brown's 1-yard touchdown run in the third quarter was his 38th career rushing touchdown.

Brown finished with just 6 rushing yards on five carries. He had no receptions. Brown will look to add onto his totals in Week 4 vs. Dallas.


Ronnie Brown has four touches, 18 total yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown ran three times for 15 yards in Sunday's 33-30 victory over the Eagles. He also caught one pass for three yards. Brown now has 69 total yards on the season. 

The Chargers face the Titans in Tennessee in Week 3. 


Ronnie Brown effective in limited touches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2013) Chargers running back Ronnie Brown looked good backing up Ryan Mathews on Monday. Brown ran for 27 yards on five carries, a 5.4-yard average, and caught both his targets for 24 yards.

Brown plays at Philadelphia in Week 2.


Mike McCoy will 'play the hot hand' at running back


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2013) Chargers coach Mike McCoy isn’t featuring Ryan Mathews as the unquestioned lead back, instead rotating him with Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown.

 “I’ve been raised with (Denver head coach) John Fox in this league,” McCoy said, via FoxSports.com. “We always played with a couple of backs. It doesn’t matter who’s in there. Keep them fresh.

“That’s the big thing. Play the hot hand while you roll. If you’ve got to tap out for a play or two, we’ll put the next guy in.”


Brown feeling recharged


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2013) The Chargers re-signed veteran running back Ronnie Brown to a one-year deal, the team announced Saturday. The move comes on the heels of Friday's signing of former Patriots running back Danny Woodhead to a two-year deal. After six seasons with Miami, Brown moved to Philadelphia in 2011 before signing a one-year deal with the Chargers last June.
