Vincent Brown to practice, not play

Chargers receiver Vincent Brown is returning to practice Wednesday. He has been on the injured reserve (with the designation to return) since the preseason.

However, U-T San Diego reports the plan is for Brown to remain out for the rest of the season. This is a chance for the second-year player some valuable practice time now that he is healthy enough to practice.

In other AFC West news:

  • Kansas City quarterback Brady Quinn will participate in NFL Player Engagement Boot Camp in the offseason. It is part of several of the career boot camps that will be offered to the players. Quinn and free-agent center Jeff Faine developed the program with the NFL Player Engagement committee the new NFL Business Management & Entrepreneurial “Investment for Impact” program. It will be held at Notre Dame, the alma mater of both players. The program will help players as they plan for their post-NFL futures.

  • Denver standout guard Chris Kuper remained out of practiced Wednesday with a lingering ankle injury that caused him to miss the past two games.

  • Receiver Jon Baldwin (flu) and tight end Tony Moeaki (possible concussion) are not practicing for the already offensive-deficient Chiefs on Wednesday.
