Brandon Flowers DB SD 3 Days

Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Flowers' chances of suiting up Thursday were hampered by the Chargers' short week, but the cornerback presumably has a chance to return to action for the team's Nov. 2 contest against Miami.

Flowers was diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to Sunday's game against Kansas City, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

A tough break for Flowers, who finishes with three tackles (one solo) against his former team. The Chargers play Thursday night at Denver, giving him just three days to advance through the league's concussion protocol. It seems unlikely that he'll be cleared to play in that game, but we'll monitor his status throughout the week.

Flowers left Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a head injury and is questionable to return, the San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports.

Flowers left the game with what looked like a possible head injury in the second quarter, but he reentered the contest after going through some tests with the trainers on the sideline. However, when the Chargers took the field in the second half, Flowers was on the sidelines without a helmet, and he eventually headed back to the locker room. This has all the appearances of a concussion.

Flowers (groin) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

The presence of Flowers, who has recorded 20 tackles and two picks in five games to date, is a welcome development for the Chrgers, with fellow cornerback Jason Verrett inactive Sunday.

Flowers (groin) was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Returning to practice, even if limited, is a good sign for Flowers continuing his breakout year against his former team. A weak Kansas City passing offense means Flowers should not be a huge need for the Chargers defense, if the worry is more playing time could aggravate his injury.

Flowers was prevented from finishing Sunday's game versus the Raiders due to a groin injury, ESPN.com reports.

Flowers has fared quite well since joining the Chargers this offseason, as he currently leads San Diego with seven passes defensed and two interceptions. Furthermore, the cornerback ranks fourth on the team with 20 tackles (19 solo). At the moment, it's unclear if Flowers' groin injury will keep him sidelined moving forward, but if that proves to be the case, rookie Chris Davis is expected to fulfill a larger role in San Diego's secondary.

Flowers made six tackles and had his first interception as a Charger on Sunday against the Jaguars.

The signing of Flowers in the offseason is looking like a smart move as he has anchored a secondary that is hurting. Jason Verrett missed this game and Sharice Wright went down with an inury, but Flowers and company still held the Jaguars in check en route to an easy victory.
