The latest reports on rookie tackle D.J. Fluker have been good. He went down at the end of the game with a knee injury, but after the game reports were that he would be OK. Going into Monday, the reports still say that he will be OK. Definitely some good news for the Chargers offense.
The Chargers already are without their starting left tackle and the team already has struggled through a ton of different injuries. Fluker has moved from right tackle over to left tackle and has done a decent job on the left side.
He has been a huge addition to the offensive line and will be needed down the stretch. If he has to sit for any stretch of time, the Chargers would have to rely on Kenny Wiggins or newly signed Willie Smith to play on the left side.
