D.J. Fluker On Player Left Tackle: “I actually like it better.”


The San Diego Chargers have all kinds of issues on the offensive line. King Dunlap has had issues with concussions and a neck injury and his backups Mike Harris went out with a season ending injury. There have been so many injuries out at left tackle that the team had to move rookie D.J. Fluker over to the left side to protect Philip Rivers back side. He has done a decent job over on the left side.

He was asked about playing on the left side and here is his thoughts:

Nice. It must be fun, but I still would rather have him on the right side of the line and King Dunlap back on the left side. I just wish that we all were healthy. All the injuries that we have gone through have finally drove me a little loopy.

    Funny how the world turns. First everyone criticized Telesco that the Chargers were screwed because they didn’t get a LT in the draft. Then the criticism of Fluker even being a good RT, and suggested he should be guard. Now we’re thanking God we have Fluker, and he can play LT as well.
    All this, AS A ROOKIE?
    Thank you for your wonderful opinions “pundits”.
