D.J. Fluker held out after concussion in practice

San Diego Chargers offensive tackle D.J. Fluker and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt battle along the line in the first half during their Monday Night NFL football game in San Diego Reuters

It might be safer than a game, but it’s still football, so practice will never be totally safe.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, Chargers first-round pick D.J. Fluker was held out of Thursday’s work after suffering a concussion in practice Wednesday.

How it happened wasn’t specified, though it implies a pretty good level of contact for a guy who isn’t moving very fast.

If their right tackle isn’t cleared through the league’s concussion protocol, the Chargers would have to turn to backup Michael Harris.

    Yeah… I’m sure it has nothing to do with the butt-whoopin’ JJ Watt just put on him.

    Concussion 2 weeks after playing? I done heard it all now. Way to find a way to plug your favorite player regarding a story that has nothing to do with him and no baring on what’s being discussed. Check friggin’ mate.

    JJ Watt didn’t do anything but get driven back all day against him.

    Did you actually watch the game?

    Other than one blocked pass he OWNED JJ Watt

    If you’re not sure, go back and count his sacks
