Danny Woodhead (broken fibula) out for the season

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Chargers coach Mike McCoy told reporters that Danny Woodhead suffered a broken fibula in yesterday’s game, and would be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

That’s a huge blow for a Chargers offense that was already without Ryan Mathews.

They’ll have to make do with Donald Brown now, and after he touched the ball 36 times yesterday, he’s clearly ready for a heavy workload.

The only hope for the Chargers is that he holds up until Mathews returns.

Fantasy Impact: 

Branden Oliver will likely see a bigger workload too after getting just three carries for 11 yards in Week 3, but it looks like Brown will be a solid play just based on workload alone. The team will probably have to make a room for another back until Mathews gets back.
