The Giants will start D.J. Fluker at right guard Week 4 against the Bucs.
A five-year starter in San Diego, Fluker spent the first three games as a backup. He's replacing Bobby Hart, who's graded as one of the worst tackles in the league and is dealing with an ankle injury. Justin Pugh will move to right tackle, with Fluker and John Jerry playing inside. It's the third offensive line combination for the Giants in four weeks. Oct 1 - 9:05 AM

Speaking Tuesday, Giants coach Ben McAdoo said free agent addition D.J. Fluker could play either guard or tackle.

Fluker profiles best at guard, and that's where he's expected to start out. Nevertheless, with RG John Jerry back in the fold, McAdoo is taking a wait-and-see approach with his offensive line, even allowing for the possibility that LG Justin Pugh is shifted back to right tackle.

The Giants are expected to use D.J. Fluker at guard.

The Giants have an immediate opening at right guard, where free agent John Jerry started 17 games last season. Fluker began his career at right tackle but has played almost exclusively at guard the last two years. ESPN's Jordan Raanan suspects only center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh are assured of starting roles on New York's offensive line.

Giants signed OL D.J. Fluker to a one-year contract.

The deal is worth up to $3 million. Fluker hasn't lived up to his draft status, but he was one of the top remaining offensive linemen in free agency. He'll be an option for the Giants at both right guard and right tackle. Fluker struggled with run blocking last year but is a pass protection upgrade. Still only 26, Fluker will look to reestablish his value for a bigger contract next offseason.
Mar 11 - 8:40 PM

Free agent OG D.J. Fluker is scheduled to visit the Giants.

ESPN Giants reporter Jordan Raanan has also heard the Patriots "have strong interest" in Fluker. Fluker has largely underachieved as the 11th overall pick in the 2013 draft, but he offers tackle-guard flexibility and is only 26 years old. At very worst, he could be a useful swing reserve in New York or Foxboro.

Chargers released RG D.J. Fluker.

The Chargers picked up Fluker's fifth-year option last April, but they clearly do not still think he is worth the $8.821 million he was owed in 2017. Fluker now heads into a surprisingly strong guard market, although it is possible teams give him a look at right tackle, which is where he began his career. ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Saints, Lions, Seahawks, Colts, Vikings, Giants, Cardinals, and Falcons could show interest. This may just be the first cut as the Chargers look to remake their offensive line. (Again.)
Mar 7 - 10:36 AM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (foot) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Fluker had a scare when he suffered a foot injury last month but obviously he's in no danger of missing Week 1. The 25-year-old is hoping for a bounce-back year after grading 68th out of 82 qualified guards on PFF last season.

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (foot) will resume practicing this week.

It puts Fluker on track to start Sunday's opener, though he's coming off an injury-marred 2015. Perhaps the Bolts will play it safe and hold him out.
Mon, Sep 5, 2016 02:58:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker's (foot) MRI came back negative.

It's good news, but Fluker remains week to week, and questionable for Week 1. The exact nature of Fluker's injury is still unclear. Fluker battled ankle issues in 2015.
Tue, Aug 23, 2016 02:59:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker was spotted on crutches and with a walking boot on his right foot Monday.

He's undergoing an MRI. Fluker has been one of the only steady presences on the Chargers' offensive line since his selection in 2013. The boot and crutches are never a good combination. The Bolts begin the season 20 days from today.
Mon, Aug 22, 2016 03:14:00 PM

Chargers exercised RG D.J. Fluker's fifth-year option for 2017.

Fluker spent his first two years at right tackle before making the transition to guard in 2015. He missed time with a sprained ankle and a concussion last year but should be at full strength for OTAs. If healthy, 25-year-old Fluker has the potential to be a difference maker in the Chargers' running game.
Fri, Apr 22, 2016 03:35:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker is back in the league's concussion protocol.

Fluker suffered a concussion last Wednesday at practice, was cleared to play Week 11, played all 60 offensive snaps, but reported headaches afterward and is back in the league's protocol. Fluker seems extremely doubtful to play Week 12 at the Jaguars. This is his fourth known concussion in three years.
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 08:53:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Fluker suffered a concussion Wednesday and didn't practice the last two days. He's not expected to play despite the questionable tag. The Chargers offensive line should still be improved coming off their bye, with LT King Dunlap (ankle) and LG Orlando Franklin (knee) both listed as probable.
Sat, Nov 21, 2015 03:40:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (concussion) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Fluker suffered a concussion at Wednesday's practice. There's almost no chance of him playing this week. This marks the third concussion of Fluker's career. All three have come during practices.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 02:32:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker missed Thursday's practice with a concussion.

Fluker was limited because of an illness on Wednesday but the team quickly figured out that he was actually dealing with a concussion. With only a few days to get cleared, we'd consider Fluker a long shot to play Sunday against Kansas City. Chris Hairston is a candidate to fill in at right guard.
