King Dunlap is Day-to-Day. Will Be Back This Season.


San Diego Chargers LT King Dunlap was seen on the sideline of the game with his helmet off and the training staff tending to him, immediately everyone was worried that he had suffered another concussion. It turns out that he has a neck strain and will be back on the football field for us again. The team made sure to be extra cautious of the situation and they sat him for the rest of the game. He also missed practice on Wednesday, but he seems to be doing well and the team is taking it day-to-day.

It is good to hear that Dunlap will be back on the field. Those injuries up to his head and neck are scary. He has been our best left tackle this season and when he is sitting on the sideline, we have to shift everyone around on the offensive line. If he sits out from the start of the game, Mike Remmers might be used as the starter.

Hopefully the King will be able to help us make a playoff push for the end of the season. The offensive line is world’s better when he is on the field.

    Honestly though if he stayed healthy more we wouldn’t think about drafting a left tackle next year

      Honestly, I don’t think they are.

    day to day according to mccoy??? so out for the year then right?

  • arnie

    It’s funny how the world turns, a few short months ago, we all thought it was the end of the world, with Dunlap at LT. Now we a praying for health and return to action. SMH

      You are so right, arnie. I was a big detractor of the King, basing my ideas about him solely on what the Philly fans were saying. I was wrong, for sure. But I loved Gaither also. Now I am more suspicious with new guys and am trying to be hopeful that we are not setting ourselves up for another heartbreak.

    Let’s get this shit….PLAYOFF PUSH starting with the Phins!!

      Yes!!!! Preach it RZ!!!! We have all offseason to be upset about things if we don’t make it (and it’s excruciating). Until we are mathematically out of it (and maybe not even after that), can some of us please enjoy the rest of this season, without being made to feel like we are children floating through life with our heads in the clouds? We ALL have a pretty good idea of what’ this team “is” or “isn’t” capable of, and what the odds are. I just get the feeling that some people think because you aren’t calling for the team to tank for better draft picks, and are still rooting for the team, that you have no idea what’s going on. Not to mention, these are usually the same people who regurgitate the “San Diego has fair weather fans” BS. It’s very condescending, honestly. I will be cheering to the last snap of the season, honestly. Glad to see that you are too, RZ!!!!! Let’s do it!!!!

    “Hopefully the King will be able to help us make a playoff push for the end of the season”.

    Amen, and thank you for posting that, Ernie!

  • philiprules

    Playoff push? Ha….ha-ha…..ha-ha-ha-ha. That’s a good one.
    That said however, I’m hoping the big guy gets back in there because he’s been a pleasant surprise and makes that line much better. Now if we can finally get rid of Clary, the team would have hope. That and something vaguely resembling a defense of course.
