LT King Dunlap likely to be back for Chargers
Indications are that Chargers left tackle King Dunlap will
return for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants after missing
three games with a neck injury.
Dunlap’s potential return means the Chargers (5-7) could have
their opening day lineup on the offensive line intact for the first
time since Sept. 22.
With Dunlap back, rookie D.J. Fluker would move from left tackle
to right tackle. That allows Jeromey Clary to slide inside from
right tackle to right guard. With Clary back at that spot, Chad
Rinehart returns to left guard.
Center Nick Hardwick is a go as well after missing practice time
earlier this week with a neck injury. Hardwick is the only Chargers
offensive lineman to start every game this season at the same
Fluker (knee) was limited in Friday’s practice but Chargers
coach Mike McCoy said he is fine.
