San Diego Chargers rookie RT D.J. Fluker has been called a “game time decision” by head coach Mike McCoy. Fluker suffered a concussion in practice on Wednesday and I guess he will be flying out with the team. We will learn early on Sunday morning if Fluker will be able to start for the Chargers at right tackle, otherwise the team will be using Mike Harris on the right side.

I think Harris will be able to do a decent job in a spot start. There definitely will be some situations that are worrisome, but he has been practicing at the position for most of the week and he is much better than he was last year.

I would feel a lot more confident to have Fluker out there though. He has to pass concussion tests before he can go out and play. I am sure if it were up to Fluker, then he would trot out there.

I still have not heard how Fluker got the concussion.

    Awesome, Good man coach. I hope he plays but like Ernie said Mike Harris is a decent backup RT and he wouldn’t be playing LT. Who’s going to back the 2 tackles up though? Clarey?

    Did you guys read about the Aldon Smith thing? sucks, DUI hit a tree, car searched and found weed and a bunch of pills.

    Clary is worth every penny.
    Fluke has been a difference maker on many levels for the O-line…Mike will be good because of it…we are okay.
    The O Line is the reason we go 2-1.
