What should the Chargers do over at left tackle with King Dunlap. He looks like a great player when he is in the lineup, but he has suffered his second concussion of the season already. I don’t know how often these things could strike on a player, but it seems that he is getting these over and over again and this could be a recurring problem.

I wonder how much concern the Chargers have with him at the left side. We don’t have many players that can play that left tackle position on the roster. We had to slide the rookie D.J. Fluker over to the left side in his absence, but that cannot be the long-term solution for the team. Mike Harris would have been a nice player to fill-in at the position, but he is out for the rest of the year.

Where do the Chargers look now? Are we just going to ride with Mike Remmers and Nick Becton on the left side of the line? We might have to rely on them, but that sounds scary as heck. This could be a problem for us as we go forward. We will have to hope for the best recovery from Dunlap and hopefully we can find another option on the left side for us.
