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. Sep 7 - 7:07 PM

Date:

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.
Sep 5 - 2:58 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.
Aug 23 - 2:59 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.
Aug 22 - 3:14 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.
Apr 22 - 3:35 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.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Chargers RG D.J. Fluker "barely could walk" after the Week 3 loss to the Vikings.

Fluker was in and out of the game all day after perhaps rushing back from a Week 2 high-ankle sprain. Fluker should miss some practice time this week, but he should play against the Browns.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 08:57:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Vikings.

Fluker's Week 1 injury appeared to be severe, but ended up costing him only one game. It's a big boost for Melvin Gordon and company.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 11:42:00 AM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (ankle) remained limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Vikings.

Fluker will be a game-time decision after practicing the last two days. His return would be an upgrade for Melvin Gordon and an offensive line that allowed four sacks last week. Chris Hairston will start if Fluker is held out.
Fri, Sep 25, 2015 06:56:00 PM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (ankle) returned to practice on Thursday.

It's the first time he's practiced since getting carted off the field in Week 1. There's an outside chance we'll see him in uniform Sunday against the Vikings. If he can't, Chris Hairston would get another start at right guard.
Thu, Sep 24, 2015 03:08:00 PM

Chargers declared RG D.J. Fluker (ankle) inactive for Week 2 against the Bengals.

Fluker made the trip the Cincinnati and has a chance to return next week. Chris Hairston will start in his place. San Diego also declared SS Jahleel Addae, WR Jacoby Jones, OLB Tourek Williams, OG Johnnie Troutman, RB Donald Brown and NT Ryan Carrethers inactive.
Sun, Sep 20, 2015 11:37:00 AM

Chargers RG D.J. Fluker (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 2.

Fluker was never expected to play, but the doubtful tag suggests he'll have a chance at returning next week. Chris Hairston will make at least one start in Fluker's place.
