If there was one position group the Chargers could least afford to have any injuries to was their offensive line. Last week the team was without tackle D.J Fluker and now the team will be without three of their starting offensive linemen today against the Dallas Cowboys.
T King Dunlap(concussion), G Chad Rinehart(toe), and G Jeromey Clary(clavicle) will be watching from the sideline today. In their place the team will start Johnnie Troutman, Michael Harris, and Rich Ohrnberger. Troutman will see his first career start after missing his entire rookie year.
The good news for the Chargers is that for the first time all season their two starting inside linebackers will be playing. This will mark the debut for rookie Manti Te’o who, I bet, has been dying to quiet his critics.
Shareece Wright, Brandon Taylor, Malcom Floyd, and Brad Sorensen will also all be inactive today.
