San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - San Diego Chargers rookie Manti Te'o may finally make his NFL debut this coming Sunday, with the team listing the linebacker as probable on Friday's injury report.

This means there is a 75 percent chance that Te'o -- the 38th player taken off the board in this past April's NFL Draft -- will suit up for the Chargers' upcoming game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Notre Dame product has been sidelined since the first game of the preseason, when he suffered an injury to his foot. He's missed San Diego's first three regular season tilts, but returned to practice last week.

Tackle D.J. Fluker, the Chargers' first round draft choice, should also return to the field after missing the team's 20-17 setback to the Tennessee Titans this past Sunday. Fluker suffered a concussion during practice last week, but has been a full participant in each session this week and is also listed as probable.

Wide receiver Malcom Floyd sat out of practice for the second straight week following a scary injury to his neck against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2. His status for Sunday remains in question.
