San Diego Chargers offensive line will lose three this week

I’ll admit that this San Diego Chargers team has surprised me early on this season despite their 1-2 record.

A team who has been plagued with injuries during training camp and now the regular season, are going to have to move forward without three starting offensive linemen against the Dallas Cowboys.

Big man tackle King Dunlap and right guard Jeromey Clary are expected to miss Week 4’s game against the second ranked defense when it comes to sacks on the quarterback. Which is not good news for Phillip Rivers and the rest of this offense.

Dunlap suffered a concussion and will have to sit out the game against Dallas. This should have DeMarcus Ware drooling right now as he went on to become the Cowboys all-time sack leader against the St. Louis Rams and could add more to that total.

Clary is dealing with a clavicle injury and missed today’s practice. Left guard Chad Rinehart is battling a toe injury and is also expected to miss the game. D.J. Fluker will return to his primary position but hasn’t shown to be the greatest pass blocker on this front-line for Rivers.

Good thing I have Dallas’s defense in my fantasy football league. Definitely starting them against San Diego.
