Chargers will not activate OL Brandyn Dombrowski (foot) and Johnnie Troutman (torn pectoral/knee surgery) off PUP, ending their seasons.
Troutman is signed for 2013, but Dombrowski is not. Troutman was a fifth-round pick last April, and will compete for one of the Chargers' final roster spots next summer. Coming into 2012, Dombrowski had appeared in at least 15 games each of the past three seasons. Tue, Nov 27, 2012 10:25:00 PM

Chargers OLs Brandyn Dombrowski (foot, PUP) and Johnnie Troutman (torn pectoral/knee surgery, PUP) returned to practice on Tuesday.

The Bolts have a three-week window to activate the reserve linemen from the PUP list. Coach Norv Turner suggested two weeks that both players are likely to miss the rest of the season.

Chargers injured OLs Brandyn Dombrowski (foot) and Johnnie Troutman (torn pectoral, knee surgery) are not expected to play this season.

"It's the furthest thing from my mind," head coach Norv Turner recently said. Dombrowski is dealing with a cyst on his foot, and Troutman tore his pectoral muscle before training camp then underwent a knee scope in September. Both players are on the non-football injury/reserve list, and if they don't return before Week 9 they won't be eligible to play in 2012.

Chargers placed OT Brandyn Dombrowski on the reserve/non-football illness list.

As expected since the beginning of camp, fifth-round OG Johnnie Troutman (torn pectoral) will begin the year on reserve/PUP. Dombrowski is dealing with a cyst on his foot.
Mon, Aug 27, 2012 04:04:00 PM

Chargers OT Brandyn Dombrowski is expected to have a "prolonged" absence from training camp with a cyst on his foot.

He's expected to be placed on the camp/PUP list after already missing a portion of offseason practices. Already considered a roster long shot after a dismal performance last season, Dombrowski may not suit up for the Chargers again.
Thu, Jul 26, 2012 03:37:00 PM

Chargers re-signed restricted free agent OT Brandyn Dombrowski to a one-year, $1.26 million contract.

The deal isn't guaranteed, and Dombrowski won't see a penny of his scheduled salary if he's among San Diego's final cuts. He may compete directly with newly acquired Mario Henderson for a roster spot. Dombrowski has been a swinging gate in previous spot starts. He should have no chance at a starting job.

Chargers OT Brandyn Dombrowski now holds the two worst single-game grades Pro Football Focus has ever given.

In just over three quarters of action as LT Marcus McNeill's replacement, Dombrowksi was worked over by Kamerion Wimbley for four sacks and five more QB hits. He was also whipped relentlessly by Seahawks DE Chris Clemons in Week 3 of the 2010 season. Philip Rivers has to hope McNeill returns for Week 11 against Julius Peppers and the Bears defense.
Fri, Nov 11, 2011 08:47:00 AM

Brandyn Dombrowski is running as the Chargers' first-team left tackle with Marcus McNeill (knee) sidelined.

McNeill is only expected to miss about two weeks of camp. Dombrowski isn't the Pro Bowl level tackle that McNeill is, but can certainly hold his own. If he has to make starts during the regular season, it won't be a massive downgrade for Philip Rivers and the Chargers' offense.
Thu, Aug 11, 2011 09:29:00 AM

Chargers tendered exclusive rights free agent OT Brandyn Dombrowski.

Dombrowski, 26, was highly inconsistent at left tackle in five starts to open last season, before Marcus McNeill ended his holdout and returned to the lineup. Still a valuable swing-type reserve, Dombrowski will be on the 2011 roster. His role remains to be seen, but his best bet is to be a backup.
Wed, Mar 2, 2011 07:03:00 PM

Coach Norv Turner continued to endorse Brandyn Dombrowski as a viable replacement for holdout LT Marcus McNeill on Monday, calling Dombrowski "a more physical run blocker than Marcus."

The underlying concession is that Dombrowski doesn't pass protect as well as McNeill. A blindside tackle's main function is to keep the passer upright. We don't doubt that the 6-foot-5, 330-pound Dombrowski might be a run-blocking asset, but McNeill's loss remains a concern for Philip Rivers.
Mon, Aug 23, 2010 03:25:00 PM

Chargers LT Brandyn Dombrowski returned from a groin injury Tuesday and was back with the first-team offense.

Tyronne Green, thankfully, moved back to guard after a brief stint as Philip Rivers' blind-side "protector." Dombrowski is an upgrade over the 6-foot-2 Green, but hasn't started at left tackle in his three-year career. As long as Marcus McNeill holds out, Philip Rivers' protection will be a major concern.
Tue, Aug 10, 2010 08:38:00 PM

Brandyn Dombrowski, not veteran Tra Thomas, will start out at left tackle in Chargers training camp.

Thomas must not have impressed in June practices. Dombrowski held up well as an injury fill-in at right tackle late last season, but he doesn't have the athleticism to take on elite pass rushers. With Marcus McNeill's status in question, left tackle is the biggest problem spot on the roster.
Tue, Jul 27, 2010 10:14:00 PM

With Marcus McNeill skipping OTAs, Brandyn Dombrowski is currently working as the Chargers' first-team left tackle.

It's not a good situation for San Diego. The Chargers prefer Dombrowski at guard due to his lack of ideal athleticism, and he was a liability in pass protection down the stretch last season. Clearly, this isn't what any team wants lining up on its $100 million quarterback's blind side. Unfortunately, the Bolts don't have much in the way of alternatives if McNeill holds out.

Brandyn Dombrowski's future in San Diego is at guard rather than tackle, according to beat writer Kevin Acee.

Dombrowski filled in capably at right tackle down the stretch, but Jeromey Clary is expected to regain the starting job in 2010. The news is somewhat surprising as Dombrowski earned a shot to compete with Clary this offseason.
Thu, Feb 25, 2010 04:04:00 PM

Brandyn Dombrowski is expected to challenge Jeromey Clary for the starting right tackle job in 2010.

Dombrowski played well down the stretch while Clary missed the final six games with a severe ankle injury. As a restricted free agent, Clary will be back with the Chargers, but he'll be fighting for his starting job.
