Gabriel (concussion) is expected to be able to return for Week 8's game against the Packers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.
Gabriel hasn't practiced this week due to his concussion, which will certainly see him miss Sunday's game against the Chargers. However, coach Dan Quinn anticipates Gabriel's absence to be relatively short-lived, as he should be back available next weekend. While Gabriel's progress through the league protocol will ultimately determine whether that timetable is realized, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson should split his vacated snaps in the meantime.
Addae (collarbone) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Addae's status appears to be on the upswing for next week's contest, as the safety was able to practice with the Chargers on Thursday, albeit on a limited basis. For this week, however, Adrian Phillips is expected to get the start in place of Addae.
Flowers (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Broncos, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Flowers was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday, but that wasn't enough to convince the Chargers to activate the corner for Sunday's game, marking the fourth straight game the 30-year-old will miss with symptoms stemming from his Week 3 concussion. Look for Casey Hayward to get the start at corner once again.
Bailey (ankle) reached an injury settlement with the Chargers on Friday, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Bailey signed with the Chargers in early-August, but didn't see a minute of preseason action. The agreement removes him from the team's injured reserve list, leaving him free to sign with another team.
