Ryan Mathews Not Practicing; DJ Fluker Is Practicing

King Dunlap was not on the field for the Chargers when they opened up practice today. He has been sidelined with a neck sprain and still has not been able to get onto the football field.

With Dunlap on the sideline, D.J. Fluker has stepped in as the left tackle and has done a good job. Fluker is getting work in today for a portion of practice, so it seems that he should be available this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals. We will still have to watch his practice report for the rest of the week.

We really can’t afford to have any more injuries at the tackle position. We are running thin at the spot and need some health.

Ryan Mathews was unable to practice because of a hamstring injury. It would be a huge loss if Mathews is unable to go. We really don’t have a capable back on the roster that can do the things that Mathews does. He picks up big yards in the running game and can pick up the tough yards for first downs.
