The Chargers may be without three offensive line starters for Sunday's game versus New Orleans.
Chargers LT King Dunlap (migraines) has been ruled out, while RT Joe Barksdale (foot) and LG Orlando Franklin (back) are listed as questionable. Barksdale did not practice on Friday, a typically ominous sign. Franklin did get in a limited session. Melvin Gordon has a dream matchup against the Saints in Week 4, but he may have to overcome a significantly short-handed offensive line.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Gordon is an interesting GPP fade in what appears to be a dream match-up. Gordon really struggled in his first game as the workhorse back (16 carries for 35 yards and a TD). You could help yourself by pivoting up to guys like Le'Veon Bell, Lamar Miller or Ezekiel Elliot.

Chargers LT King Dunlap (illness) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He's being treated for migraines. The Chargers are adamant that he doesn't have a concussion. Dunlap missed a large chunk of last season while battling a concussion. Chris Hairston will fill in at left tackle if Dunlap can't go against the Saints in Week 4.

ESPN’s Eric D. Williams reports the Chargers believe LT King Dunlap will rebound this season.

A concussion and an ankle injury limited Dunlap to just seven games last season, but OC Ken Whisenhunt thought he played well when healthy. "I look at the tape -- and I know he missed some games last year -- but I see a lot of what I saw from him in 2013," Whisenhunt said. "I see energy from King and staying upbeat, which I like." The Chargers did not do much to address their offensive line this offseason, instead hoping better health and continuity will lead to improvement. Dunlap staying on the field would go a long way to making that hope a reality.

Chargers LT King Dunlap said he is not concerned about the possibility of another concussion.

Dunlap was sidelined due to a concussion early last season, but he downplayed how the injury will affect him moving forward. "Concussions, they happen. We play a contact sport," Dunlap said. "As far as I’m concerned, if I have another one that’s not the end. … I appreciate people being concerned, but I’m fine. I feel great." Dunlap was forced to miss nine games last season due to the concussion and an ankle injury. He has only played a full 16-game slate once in his career. With Dunlap set to turn 31 in September, it is possible the Chargers draft his replacement in Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil with the No. 3 overall pick.

Chargers LT King Dunlap has agreed to a $1.2 million pay cut for 2016.

Dunlap's salary has been slashed from $4.5 million to $3.3 million, but he can earn back all $1.2 million through playing-time incentives. A high-ankle sprain and concussion helped limit Dunlap to only seven appearances in 2015. When he was on the field, he struggled. Dunlap turns 31 in September.

Mar 12 - 9:12 PM

Fluker (concussion, questionable) is also on track to return after getting in two full practices this week.

Chargers LT King Dunlap (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 12.

Fri, Nov 27, 2015 03:20:00 PM

LT King Dunlap exited the Chargers' Week 11 loss to the Chiefs with an ankle injury and did not return.

Sun, Nov 22, 2015 07:06:00 PM
