Johnnie Troutman is leading the battle to be the Chargers starting right guard.
Last year's starter Jeromey Clary, remains on PUP as he comes off hip and shoulder surgeries. It appears the Chargers are leaning toward experience with Troutman over third-round rookie Chris Watt. Troutman started nine games last season, showing well as a run-blocker. Aug 20 - 10:05 AM

Chargers LG Johnnie Troutman has been demoted out of the starting lineup.

Troutman drew the ire of coach Mike McCoy when he was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty late in the fourth quarter last week. So with LT King Dunlap (neck) getting back, the Chargers can start D.J. Fluker at right tackle, Jeromey Clary at right guard and Chad Rinehart at left guard. It's the first time their offensive line has been intact since Weeks 1 and 2.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco anticipates second-year OG Johnnie Troutman competing for a starting job in camp.

Troutman is an old-regime holdover who didn't play as a rookie due to multiple injuries, but San Diego has arguably the worst offensive line in the league and they can't afford to gloss over any inherited pieces. If the season began today, we suspect the Chargers' line would look like this: LT King Dunlap, LG Troutman, C Nick Hardwick, RG Chad Rinehart, and RT D.J. Fluker. That's ugly.

Chargers G Johnnie Troutman is fully recovered from the torn pectoral and arthroscopic knee surgery that wiped out his rookie year.

Troutman is now expected to "push" for a starting job. An early-round prospect who fell to the fifth due to medical concerns, Troutman is a power blocker with some short-area athleticism. San Diego has question marks at both guard positions with Tyronne Green still unsigned and Louis Vasquez gone to Denver.

Chargers OG Johnnie Troutman (pectoral surgery, PUP) is expected to begin practicing on Monday.

Troutman tore his pectoral muscle while lifting weights just days before being selected in the fifth round of April's NFL Draft. Once he steps onto the practice field, the Chargers will have three weeks to either activate Troutman or send him to season-ending injured reserve. The rookie is not expected to play this year, but he could emerge as a mauling run-blocking guard down the road.

Chargers OG Johnnie Troutman (pectoral surgery, PUP) recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Chargers may as well have gotten the other surgery out of the way with Troutman sidelined on reserve/PUP. The scope entails only a two- to three-week recovery. Per the Union-Tribune San Diego, the fifth-round pick out of Penn State "is not expected to play this season." The organization still believes Troutman can emerge as a power-blocking starter at guard down the road.

The Union-Tribune San Diego confirms Chargers fifth-round OG Johnnie Troutman (torn pectoral) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP list, and reports the Chargers hope he "(sits) his rookie season."

It means Troutman will miss all of camp, and at least the first six games of the season. Per long-time Chargers beat writer/columnist Kevin Acee, the Bolts hope Troutman sits because "if he's playing it's due to injuries or severe performance issues on the offensive line." He shouldn't be counted on to play a snap in 2012.

Chargers fifth-round OG Johnnie Troutman (torn pectoral) is expected to open the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Troutman will likely miss all of camp and at least the first six games of the regular season after suffering the injury two weeks before the NFL draft in April. "Come October, we're going to get a guy who probably should have been drafted a lot earlier if he'd have been healthy," said OC Hal Hunter.

Chargers agreed to terms with No. 149 overall pick OG Johnnie Troutman on a four-year contract.

A three-year starter at Penn State, Troutman appeared to be on his way to competing for the starting right guard job until he underwent pectoral surgery just after the draft. The Chargers are unlikely to receive a return on their investment until the 2013 season.

Chargers fifth-round G Johnnie Troutman will likely miss the 2012 season after undergoing pectoral surgery last week.

He's also dealing with a knee injury suffered at the Senior Bowl. The Chargers say they were aware of the injuries when they selected Troutman on Saturday. At the very best, he will start 2012 on the PUP list. Initially billed as a potential rookie starter, Troutman won't be a factor until 2013 at soonest.

The Chargers plan to let fifth-round pick Johnnie Troutman compete for their starting left guard job.

Troutman fell a bit in the draft due to a 2011 DUI arrest and knee tendinitis, but it sounds like San Diego had an early-round grade on his tape. With Kris Dielman in retirement, Troutman will compete with Tyronne Green and Brandyn Dombrowski at left guard. At 6'4/329, Troutman is the mauler of the group.

Chargers selected Penn State OG Johnnie Troutman with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A three year starter at Penn State, Troutman does his best work when run blocking. Possessing a thick upper body, he uses length and strength to sustain his individual matchup. However, he struggles in his pass drop and may be limited to a rotational role in the NFL. Troutman had difficulties preventing penetration when facing stiff, quick twitch, competition in college.
