D.J. Fluker returns to practice for the Chargers, Jarret Johnson questionable


The San Diego Chargers are looking to bounce back against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday after losing to the Oakland Raiders last week.

The offensive line for this Chargers team is slowly starting to fall apart. A team that has been plagued with injuries since  camp opened up earlier in the year, they’ve lost around five players for the rest of the year.

Offensive tackle D.J. Fluker, who gave a Oakland Raider a WWE Belly to Belly suplex during the game, returned to practice after dealing with a calf injury. This is his second day in a row that he’s reported to practice but could be listed as questionable for Monday nights game.

He suffered the calf injury after being blocked by Oakland linebacker Sio Moore in the loss.

Linebacker Donald Butler remained out of practice today. He’s been battling a groin injury early on this season and hasn’t practiced all week. Butler is also listed as questionable alongside Jarret Johnson.

The Chargers could be in danger of losing Johnson as he wasn’t able to practice this week but was able to do a little bit of running. He hasn’t been ruled out yet, but he could be a game-time decision. Johnson has today and tomorrow to rest up and see how that hamstring feels on Monday when he takes the field to warm up.
