Chargers Practice Report: Clary, Rinehart On Side Field, Wright Back, Dunlap Still Not Cleared

Three of the San Diego Chargers offensive linemen are still not practicing today. Both starting guards and the top backup guard are not at practice. Chad Rinehart, Jeromey Clary and Rich Ohrnberger all are working on the side field.

That is going to be a little tough for the depth at guard. Johnnie Troutman and Steve Schilling are the only healthy guards on the roster at this point.

We will have to watch how these guys progress during the week. It would be nice to have some starting guards this week against the Oakland Raiders. The backups did a great job against the Dallas Cowboys last week though.

Jeromey Clary has a clavicle injury and could be out for a little bit of time. Chad Rinehart has a toe injury that he is working though. Rich Ohrnberger was hurt over the weekend and we will get more information on the injury later in the day.

Starting left tackle King Dunlap still has not been cleared for his concussion and was out of practice. Hopefully he can come back this week. Mike Harris did a phenomenal job over the weekend with Dunlap out though.

Shareece Wright was back on the practice field today. He hasn’t played in the last couple of weeks because of a hamstring injury. It is good to have some people back in the secondary. Although, Johnny Patrick did not participate in practice.

    It would be nice to have Dunlap back, but not practicing on Wednesday is not a good sign.
    Perhaps the bigger question is – “who didn’t practice for the Raiders today?”

  • Peter Thompson

    Patrick is taking a beating this season.. he’s been out a couple of times, but it has luckily not been that serious. He has made some good plays, so I hope he stays healthy. He was a good surprise pick up, working with what we had.

  • Stefanie Smith

    Hope everyone is healing, but I get suspicious when some with mild concussions get back to playing a week later and others take a much longer time,.. As a concussion clearance is contingent on subjective opinions from the injured player himself, he can stretch it a bit (similar to taking a few plays off). I hope this is not what is going on here.

      1st he has to pass the concussion test to be cleared to practice. Who knows how long a concusion can heal especially if this isn’t your first one which dunlap has had at least one more before.

      • Stefanie Smith

        My issue is that part of the test to get cleared to practice is a subjective one–solely based on what the player says.


    Mike Harris Will be our starting LT for years i think……..

      That’s funny to actually see someone post that, since we wanted him run out of town last season and cut from the roster this season. LOL

        Next man up,,, again?

  • arnie

    Everyday, i get a little more comfortable with the personnel playing and the decision making of the front office and The Coaching. However, the raiders are coming to play. they will bring it. No matter who is out there, the Chargers will have to bring the best.

  • Gunnar Martin

    If the King is able to come back this week but our top three guards are all out, would Mike Harris be the primary backup guard behind Troutman and Schilling? He’s done extremely well so far as a fill in

  • Jonah Lee

    Weird to hear ironman Clary on the sideline two weeks in a row. nevertheless, Troutman was awesome, if only one of the starters return we have a good backup plan!!
