San Diego Chargers LT King Dunlap was seen on the sideline of the game with his helmet off and the training staff tending to him, immediately everyone was worried that he had suffered another concussion. It turns out that he has a neck strain and will be back on the football field for us again. The team made sure to be extra cautious of the situation and they sat him for the rest of the game. He also missed practice on Wednesday, but he seems to be doing well and the team is taking it day-to-day.
It is good to hear that Dunlap will be back on the field. Those injuries up to his head and neck are scary. He has been our best left tackle this season and when he is sitting on the sideline, we have to shift everyone around on the offensive line. If he sits out from the start of the game, Mike Remmers might be used as the starter.
Hopefully the King will be able to help us make a playoff push for the end of the season. The offensive line is world’s better when he is on the field.
