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

There was speculation he might have been benched after allowing two sacks but that wasn't the case. Right tackle Joe Barksdale (hip) also got hurt on Sunday. San Diego's offensive line has been banged up all season and this latest batch of injuries won't help matters.
Nov 22 - 7:06 PM

Chargers LT King Dunlap (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 9.

The Chargers will also be without C Chris Watt (shoulder) and LG Orlando Franklin (doubtful, knee). It's more a run-blocking downgrade than pass protection concern. Chris Hairston will start for Dunlap.

Sep 27 - 8:53 PM

Chargers re-signed LT King Dunlap to a four-year, $28 million contract.

Dunlap started all 16 games on Philip Rivers' blindside last year, grading out as a top-25 tackle by Pro Football Focus. A dominant run-blocker, Dunlap made improvements in pass protection, allowing just three sacks. Turning 30 in September, Dunlap will return as a bookend to RT D.J. Fluker and is now signed through 2018 -- Dunlap's age-33 season. The Chargers still have a long way to go to shore up their interior offensive line.
Feb 20 - 7:45 PM

The Chargers will meet with free agent LT King Dunlap's player rep at the Combine.

Per ace reporter Michael Gehlken, the Bolts would like to re-sign Dunlap before the start of free agency. Dunlap started all 16 games last season, holding up reasonably well on Philip Rivers' blindside. Dunlap is Rotoworld's No. 5 free-agent tackle. He turns 30 in September.

Updating an earlier item, Chargers LT King Dunlap has been diagnosed with a strained neck, but the team is uncertain if he suffered his third concussion of the season in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

"Once we sit down and figure out all the details of everything and the doctors make the ruling," coach Mike McCoy said Monday. "We will definitely look at what is best for King Dunlap's future and not just our football team." At the very least, it sounds like Dunlap will miss Week 11. D.J. Fluker filled in on the blindside against the Broncos, with Jeromey Clary manning right tackle.
