King Dunlap got in a little “skirmish” on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars with Alan Branch and has been fined $8268 for the incident. The two had pushed each other a couple of times where Branch and Dunlap got tangled up. Branch was flagged for a penalty, but Dunlap and the Chargers were able to walk away with the first down and the extra yards.

That is just a little bit of dough that will be out of the pocket for Dunlap. Dunlap has been doing a great job for the Chargers up front and has been one of the reasons for the team’s success in the passing game. Dunlap has been doing a great job of protecting Philip’s back side.

The little skirmish shows the fight of this team and of the offensive line. The team will not back down and is shedding that soft label that had been hung on this roster for a long time. This team will get physical.
