D.J. Fluker misses practice again
By Bill Williamson
San Diego Chargers rookie right tackle D.J. Fluker did not practice Friday, missing a second straight day because of a concussion he suffered late in practice Wednesday. He is listed as questionable to play Sunday against Tennessee.
Fluker, the Chargers' top draft pick this year, must pass an NFL test before being cleared to play. If he cannot play, second-year player Mike Harris would start in his place.
Inside linebacker Donald Butler practiced fully Friday for the first time this week after a groin injury. He is listed as questionable. Rookie linebacker Manti Te’o is listed as doubtful. He was limited all week with his foot injury, and odds are Te’o will make his debut in Week 4.
As expected, receiver Malcom Floyd was ruled out of the game with a neck injury he suffered last week at Philadelphia. He didn’t practice all week. He reportedly may miss a month.
