The Chargers will not activate OG Jeromey Clary (hip surgery) from the reserve/PUP list, ending his season.
Clary was always a long shot to suit up this season after undergoing two hip operations in three months over the summer. Now 31, Clary is headed for free agency. He has 103 games of experience, including 93 as a starter, but his health is going to limit his odds of earning guaranteed money for 2015. Nov 18 - 4:11 PM

Chargers OG Jeromey Clary (hip surgery) is "nowhere close" to being ready to come off the PUP list.

Per beat writer Michael Gehlken, Clary "may not play this year." On the reserve/PUP list, Clary is technically eligible to resume practicing next week. He won't, however. With Clary and C Nick Hardwick on the shelf, the Chargers' interior line is currently LG Chad Rinehart, C Rich Orhnberger, and RG Johnnie Troutman. Troutman is currently rotating snaps with rookie Chris Watt.

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary underwent an additional hip surgery "about a week ago," and may miss the entire 2014 season.

He's now had two hip operations in a three-month span. Clary will open the season on reserve/PUP, and likely stay there for all of 2014. Johnnie Troutman is now San Diego's starting right guard after beating out rookie Chris Watt. Pro Football Focus gave Troutman plus run-blocking grades -- and Clary miserable ones -- so this could actually be an upgrade for Ryan Mathews.
Aug 31 - 8:34 PM

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary is expected to start the season on reserve/PUP.

Clary won't be eligible to return until Week 7. He's recovering from offseason hip and shoulder operations and hasn't practiced at all this summer. Johnnie Troutman is expected to open the season next to RT D.J. Fluker.
Aug 25 - 7:40 PM

Injured Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (hip, PUP) has agreed to a $2.95 million pay cut.

Recovering from hip and shoulder operations, Clary has slashed his salary from $4.55 million to $1.6 million, likely saving his roster spot. Clary is shaping up as a candidate to spend the first six games of the season on reserve/PUP, leaving third-rounder Chris Watt in the driver's seat at right guard.
Jul 28 - 5:04 PM

Chargers placed RG Jeromey Clary (hip) on the active/PUP list.

Clary underwent offseason hip and shoulder surgeries and was still on crutches last month. There have been rumblings he may not be ready for the opener and could open the season on reserve/PUP, which would keep him sidelined the first six weeks. Rookie Chris Watt will handle starter's reps in Clary's place.
Jul 23 - 4:12 PM

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (hip, shoulder surgeries) missed all of spring practices and was still on crutches as of mid to late June.

The U-T San Diego calls Clary a "player to watch" due to uncertain health. The Chargers did draft Chris Watt in the third round, and he could threaten Clary's job even at 100 percent. With or without Clary, San Diego's offensive line should be plenty functional in 2014 after a rock-solid 2013 showing.
Jul 17 - 10:53 AM

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary is recovering from offseason surgeries on his hip and shoulder.

It's unclear both when the operations took place, and whether Clary will be ready for training camp. Owed a $4.55 million base salary, Clary could be a late-camp release candidate if he doesn't recover on schedule. He continued to struggle as a blocker in 2013, and the Bolts drafted Chris Watt in the third round.
Jun 2 - 2:13 PM

ESPN Chargers blogger Eric Williams considers RG Jeromey Clary a candidate for release.

The Bolts are currently over the NFL's salary cap. Releasing 30-year-old Clary would clear $4.55 million. Clary kicked inside to guard after the team drafted RT D.J. Fluker in the first round last year. He started every game and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 72 guard out of 81 qualifiers. San Diego has a number of veterans who could be cut, including Eddie Royal ($4.5 million), OLB Dwight Freeney ($3.5 million), and FB Le'Ron McClain ($2.5 million).

Chargers RG Jeromey Clary (clavicle) missed Friday's practice and is not expected to play in Week 4 against Dallas.

San Diego is going to be without three starting offensive linemen against a Dallas defense that ranks second in the NFL in sacks (13). LG Chad Rinehart (toe) and LT King Dunlap (concussion) will also miss the game. This is a scary matchup for Philip Rivers; fire up the Cowboys' fantasy defense.

Jeromey Clary opened OTAs as the Chargers' starting right guard.

Clary has started 78 career games, all at right tackle. After the selection of RT D.J. Fluker with the No. 11 overall pick last month, Clary is trying to make the switch to the interior. The 29-year-old graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 14 right tackle last season, but his pass blocking has long been sub-par. The Chargers current offensive line looks like this: LT King Dunlap, LG Chad Rinehart, C Nick Hardwick, RG Clary, RT Fluker.

GM Tom Telesco confirmed that Jeromey Clary is open to playing guard.

Clary started 14 games at right tackle last season, grading out 38th among 80 overall qualifiers according to Pro Football Focus. Thanks to the selection of Alabama's D.J. Fluker and the loss of Louis Vasquez in free agency, Clary will kick inside. He's a little oversized for the role at 6'6/320, but he accepts that he's not an option at left tackle.

The Chargers will evaluate RT Jeromey Clary at guard.

San Diego used the No. 10 overall pick on Alabama RT D.J. Fluker Thursday night. They could save $2.3M in cap space by dumping Clary, but are not expected to do that anytime soon. They have a hole at guard after losing Louis Vasquez in free agency.

The Chargers could save $2.3 million in salary cap space by releasing RT Jeromey Clary.

It's surprising they haven't done it yet. Long a turnstile in pass protection, 29-year-old Clary should no longer be on scholarship in San Diego with old GM A.J. Smith run out of town. Clary's 2013 base salary is $4 million.
Fri, Mar 8, 2013 03:11:00 PM

Chargers RT Jeromey Clary injured his left knee on the offense's second play in Week 13 versus the Bengals.

Clary tried to strap it up with a brace but was unable to return. Kevin Haslam filled in while Rex Hadnot took over for LG Tyronne Green (hamstring). The result was little room for Ryan Mathews on the ground and four sacks of Philip Rivers.
