SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Chargers right tackle D.J. Fluker is hopeful about playing Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Fluker, who hasn't practiced since suffering a concussion Wednesday, says he's making progress.
The rookie said having two days off has aided his possible return. He said he stayed in dark places much of that time.
Coach Mike McCoy said no verdict has been reached on the rookie's availability, calling it a game-time decision.
