Chargers injury news: Johnnie Troutman placed on IR

By Ernie Padaon

The San Diego Chargers have finally placed Johnnie Troutman on the IR with his forearm injury. The team had been playing with their hands tied behind their backs with the offensive line all season. The team has gone into games with only 7 active lineman and the team has suffered injuries in every game this year. Finally the team has made the move to place the injured Johnnie Trouman on the IR and will bring in some players that can actually step on the field to help this awful offensive line.

The offensive line is battered with injuries at this point in the season. It is only week 3, but both starting guards have left the field on a cart and King Dunlap has suffered another concussion.

The team was hoping that Troutman would be able to step back on the field this year, but with all the injuries, the team could now wait. The team seemed adamant that he would get back on the field this year, but for some reason they did not give him the IR with the designation to return. Not sure if they wanted to waste that designation on him.

This team needs help on the offensive line in a bad way. With Troutman on IR and the recent release of Kyle Miller, the Charges have some room to bring on some players.
