Chargers safety Addae cleared after concussion

SAN DIEGO (AP) Chargers safety Jahleel Addae has been cleared to return to practice three weeks after suffering a concussion in a loss at Denver.

Addae rejoined the team on the practice field Thursday.

Addae had two scary reactions following hits in a 35-21 loss at Denver on Oct. 23. The team said that night he had a stinger. Addae was diagnosed with a concussion the following afternoon.

Says Addae: ''Obviously it wasn't a pretty sight, but I've moved on from it.''

Also Thursday, Seyi Ajirotutu said he has appealed a $27,562 fine by the NFL for making contact with an official during a loss to Miami.

His wife had twins on Tuesday.

Says Ajirotutu: ''I could use every penny.''
