RG Louis Vasquez will miss a minimum of 2 weeks with a sprained MCL that he suffered last week in the Seattle Seahawks game. Tyronne Green will replace Vasquez for those 2 weeks.
Our offensive line should be at full strength in week 6 when Vasquez is able to return from his injury. Also in week 6, Marcus McNeill will be eligible to play again from his roster exemption “suspension.” Hopefully we do not have any more injuries to the line and we can see what these guys can do at full strength. The Chargers already hold the number 1 ranked offense and would like to open up more lanes in the running game for Ryan Mathews and Mike Tolbert.
Mathews should also be ready this week for the game against Arizona. He went through some workouts yesterday and said that he feels at full strength. Mathews will be looking forward to play behind the all pro left tackle Marcus McNeill. We all are looking forward to seeing the offense at full strength.
