Chargers RT D.J. Fluker Returned To Friday Practice

San Diego Chargers Rookie RT D.J. Fluker returned to the practice field on Friday after resting yesterday with a calf injury.  He thinks that he hurt his calf as he was choke slamming the Oakland Raiders player to the ground. It seems that he is ready to get back on the field to practice though. He was listed as “day-to-day” by coach McCoy yesterday and it looks like today is the day.  He stepped back on the practice field and will likely start at right tackle for the Chargers on Monday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fluker and LT King Dunlap could both be in the lineup for the first time in the last 3 weeks. Dunlap had missed the previous 2 weeks with a concussion and Fluker missed the week before that with his own concussion. It will be nice to have both starting tackles back in the game.

Backup tackle Mike Harris is on the injured reserve and the team will have to rely on Nick Becton and Mike Remmers as the backups at the position. Hopefully both starters will be able to stay fairly healthy for the rest of the season. HOPEFULLY!

    I felt a bit bad for Sio Moore…but it is good to see a Charger (not named Rivers) play with that kind of intensity.

      Why would you feel bad for Sio Moore?!

      He would have done the same thing to Philip given the chance.

    Nice! That will be so awesome if they can both play on Monday! I am still really bummed we lost Harris, though. It was good to see him stepping up this year in that way. It made me feel so much better in the event that a starting tackle went down. We will just have to cross our fingers now, and hope that Becton & Remmers are good enough to spell them, should they need to. Or, step it up the way Harris did, if it’s season ending.

    Man, that totally sucks about Big Mike, dude totally turned it around this year. I want that guy to stick around for his whole career, quick study, and big time heart. Hell, we all hated his ass, and look at what he did. Turned himself into a multi talented, big part, of our lines ability, to get people much needed rest during games without skipping a beat. We will sorely miss him. Get well Big Mike Harris, you watch, next year, you will be starting for us, and not because you are all we have left, but because you are the best at your position. Bolt Up!!
