San Diego Chargers LT King Dunlap suffered a concussion a couple of weeks ago against the Tennessee Titans and has miss a couple of games since. He missed a win against the Dallas Cowboys and a loss to the Oakland Raiders. Mike Harris filled in at left tackle with Dunlap on the sideline, but now Harris is no longer available. Harris went onto the injure reserve on Wednesday and is no longer available this season.

The Chargers signed OT Mike Remmers onto the roster to help with the depth at the position, but the Chargers would have to lean on undrafted rookie Nick Becton and a practice squad player in Mike Remmers at the position if Dunlap were unable to play this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts.

We will keep our eyes on the practice report in the next few days and see the status of King Dunlap. It was reported by Michael Gehlken last night that Dunlap was lifting weights and running. That has to be a good sign. We will check out the report later today.
