D.J. Fluker, Chad Rinehart Not Practicing For Chargers On Wednesday

The San Diego Chargers got LT King Dunlap back on the field, but now rookie RT D.J. Fluker was not practicing. Is there a rule that they cannot be on the field at the same time? The last time Dunlap was able to play, Fluker was out of the lineup with a concussion. Has anyone ever seen these two people at the same time? Maybe they are the same person.

Fluker is on the sideline and we should get a status on his injury after practice. My guess is that Mike McCoy will say that he got a little dinged up against the Oakland Raiders and he is getting a little bit of a rest for the day.

Starting LG Chad Rinehart is still on the sideline also with a toe injury. Rinehart has been out for a while now and Johnnie Troutman has been starting with Rinehart on the sideline. Troutman has been doing a good job in his absence.

I expect Fluker to be back on the field on Sunday to body slam some Indianapolis Colts. There is no sign of Rinehart’s return coming this week.

    If I know the chargers like I think I know the chargers, it will be that fluker had some wired injury than he played through but turned out to be way worse then expected, and mike McCoys stupid lying ass will say he’s day to day and will be fine, and then he’ll miss te rest of the year…

    I heard somewhere Rinehart has turf toe. That’s a crappy injury to have and might mean he’ll miss a while
