D.J. Fluker held out after concussion in practice


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.
