San Diego Chargers rookie RT D.J. Fluker was seen in a walking boot after the Cincinnati game. He has been dealing with some ankle issues this season, but is still expected to be on the field against the Denver Broncos on Sunday:

Fluker has been a big part of the offensive line this season. He has flipped over to the left tackle spot a couple of times this year in order to fill in for King Dunlap.

He has been a big reason in which the Chargers offensive line has been upgraded this season. He has done well at right tackle and has helped open up running lanes for Ryan Mathews and the other backs on the roster.

Fluker will be needed on the field against the Broncos. The Broncos will be without Von Miller on Sunday, but we still need one of our best offensive linemen on the field to manhandle whoever fills in for Miller and the rest of the Denver Broncos defenders. I have no doubt that Fluker will get on the field and play through the pain.

      That is no joke. Someone I know met him and they said he is a giant. Seriously.

        I stood next to him in the locker room two weeks ago. I thought the lights went out… then he sat down… he’s huge. So is Dunlap. Both are massive!

    He tweeked it a little bit when he slipped. Said it’s fine and boot is just a precaution.
    I swear that is the biggest boot I’ve ever seen!

    There’s no doubt in my mind Big Fluke will be in there Sunday and ready to crush some donkey helmets. I’m still hoping he pancakes Phillips.

    Not only is the dude a beast, he just goes out there like he’s been there for years. Fluker don’t care who you are, what your rep is, Fluker just balls up and pancakes fools. There will be a statue of the dude at Chargers park some day body slamming raiders… TT best pick in the draft….
