San Diego Chargers RT D.J. Fluker suffered a concussion in practice yesterday. it was diagnosed after practice and he did not practice today. Fluker will have to pass concussion tests before he is able to join practice again and that would put his chances of missing the game this Sunday in jeopardy. If Fluker is unable to play, the Chargers would have to turn to Mike Harris at right tackle.
We should learn more about the status on Fluker tomorrow. We will see if he passes his tests and can get back onto the practice field. Otherwise, we will have to work with a patch up job at right tackle.
