Chargers center Nick Hardwick seems on track to make his 60th consecutive start.

Hardwick, sidelined for parts of last Sunday's game by a neck-shoulder stinger, returned to practice Friday after merely observing team workouts Wednesday and Thursday.

Also practicing Friday were Le'Ron McClain and Jahleel Addae, who'd not practiced this week with ankle injuries.

D.J. Fluker missed practice with an illness. Mike McCoy said Fluker "will be fine" for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

The Chargers ruled King Dunlap out for Sunday's game. He hasn't practiced since leaving last Sunday's game with a neck injury.

When Dunlap departed against the Broncos, Fluker moved from right tackle to left tackle. He seems the top candidate to start there against the Dolphins.
