Darryl Sharpton dealing with a concussion

Oft-injured inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton, one of the team’s biggest hitters, is out again while he completes the NFL-mandated concussion protocol. Kubiak said it remains “unknown” whether Sharpton will play against the Chargers. Kubiak said Sharpton was diagnosed with a concussion before the New Orleans game, which wasn’t previously known.

Tight end Garrett Graham, who has been bothered by a hip pointer suffered against the Saints, will definitely play. Two guys who obviously won’t are rookie offensive linemen David Quessenberry and Brennan Williams. Both are on injured reserve and underwent surgery Wednesday, Quessenberry for a broken bone in his foot and Williams for a microfracture in the same knee he had scoped in May.

Quessenberry, a sixth-round pick, was hurt in practice Monday without being hit, Kubiak explained. “We were in a drill. He just comes off the ball. He didn’t even get touched. He stuck his foot in the ground and broke it. He had surgery yesterday.”

Kubiak admitted what the third-round choice Williams had done was “much more extensive” than the original procedure but said, “They’re both doing fine.”
