The San Diego Chargers have all kinds of issues on the offensive line. King Dunlap has had issues with concussions and a neck injury and his backups Mike Harris went out with a season ending injury. There have been so many injuries out at left tackle that the team had to move rookie D.J. Fluker over to the left side to protect Philip Rivers back side. He has done a decent job over on the left side.
He was asked about playing on the left side and here is his thoughts:
D.J. Fluker told me he's enjoyed playing at left tackle. "I actually like it better." #chargers
