    SAN DIEGO (AP)-The San Diego Chargers had numerous players miss practice as they continue preparations for Sunday's game at Kansas City.

    Running backs <span>LaDainian Tomlinson</span> and <span>Jacob Hester,</span> wide receiver Buster Davis and linebacker <span>Jyles Tucker</span> were unable to practice Thursday.

    Coach Norv Turner said, "We have a little bit of the flu going around."

    Others not working were cornerback <span>Antonio Cromartie</span> (knee) and center <span>Nick Hardwick</span> (ankle). Cromartie is expected to play Sunday; Hardwick is out until December.

    The Chargers, who have the NFL's No. 23-ranked defense, made some moves on that side of the ball. Cornerback <span>Antoine Cason,</span> a former first-round pick, was demoted as the team's nickel back. He was replaced by <span>Steve Gregory,</span> who had been seeing time at safety.

    Rookie <span>Kevin Ellison,</span> a sixth-round pick out of USC, will continue as the starter at strong safety. Ellison made his first NFL start in Monday night's loss to the undefeated Denver Broncos, who lead the Chargers by 3 1/2 games in the AFC West.
