ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Elvis Dumervil plans to test his sprained left shoulder at practice Friday in hopes he can play Sunday against San Diego.

The Denver Broncos' two-time Pro Bowl defensive end was injured at Carolina last weekend but medical tests this week showed no torn muscles or ligaments.

Dumervil hasn't practiced all week but said Thursday that his goal is to play against the Chargers.

He had a similar injury to the same shoulder that sidelined him for two games and most of a third last season, but Dumervil said this injury is "nowhere near" as serious or as painful as that one was.

Dumervil, half of Denver's "Doom & Gloom" pass-rushing duo with second-year star Von Miller, has seven sacks and an AFC-high five forced fumbles to go with Miller's 10 sacks.
