      Clowney (knee) may be limited to third-down situations only in Sunday's game against Tennessee, according the defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Analysis: Clowney, was limited for a second consecutive day Thursday, "definitely" has a shot to play Sunday, added head coach Bill O'Brien.

      Oliver gained 36 yards on 13 carries and 27 yards on seven reception in Thursday's 35-21 loss to the Broncos.

      Analysis: Ronnie Brown had one carry and one reception, while Shaun Draughn did not register a touch. It was Oliver dominating both the touches and snaps in a matchup that left him with minimal room to run. He was around or under one yard per carry for the entire game, until breaking off a meaningless 23-yard scamper on the final play of the contest. As ugly as the rushing numbers were, Oliver didn't seem to make many mistakes. The real problem was that San Diego's shaky offensive line couldn't handle a stout Denver front seven, putting the entire game on Philip Rivers' shoulders. Oliver also didn't have much room to work with on his receptions, though he perhaps could have done a bit better the two or three times he actually saw a small slice of open field. He may again find himself dependent on the receptions next week, as the Chargers have to face a tough Dolphins defense in Miami. There's some chance Ryan Mathews (knee) and/or Donald Brown (concussion) could return, but neither player seemed close to being ready this week.

      Gates caught 5-of-8 targets for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 35-21 loss to the Broncos.

      Analysis: Gates reached the end zone for a fourth consecutive game, with his eighth and ninth touchdowns of the season providing his third multi-TD performance of the year. Last year's total of just four scoring receptions was quite fluky, but what he's doing thus far in 2014 -- scoring more than a touchdown per game -- is perhaps even less likely to hold up. Outside of the touchdowns, Gates has produced similar numbers to last season's, albeit with fewer receptions and more yards per catch. He's undoubtedly a huge threat in the end zone, but will likely fall at least a few touchdowns short of his current pace for 18.

      Allen caught 9-of-13 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 35-21 loss to the Broncos

      Analysis: Allen faded after a hot start, but he was still involved in the offense, and ultimately gave owners a satisfying stat line for just the second time this season. The touchdown, his first of the year, came on a quick screen from just two yards out. It wasn't all positive, as Allen contributed to an interception by slipping on a route, and also dropped what should have been an easy catch. The sum of his campaign remains disappointing, but as the most-targeted player in a prolific passing offense, Allen still has every opportunity to put together a big second half of the season. He'll have to start with a touch matchup, as the Chargers travel to Miami next week.

      Rivers completed 30-of-41 passes for 252 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions in Thursday's 35-21 loss to the Broncos. He added 17 yards on his only carry.

      Analysis: Rivers arguably played better than the stats indicate, as he was up against an excellent Denver defense, yet only took two sacks and didn't fumble. Neither of his interceptions was especially bad, as one was partially caused by Keenan Allen slipping, while the other came on a deep heave with the Chargers down by two scores late in the game. Rivers once again worked well around a shaky offensive line, and he notably found Allen for 78 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions, albeit with 13 targets needed to get there. Of course, even with Allen breaking out for just his second big game this season, Rivers spread the ball to a bunch of receivers, with Allen, Antonio Gates, Malcom Floyd and RB Branden Oliver each getting seven or more targets. Unfortunately for Rivers, next week brings another tough road matchup, this time in Miami.
