Nick Hardwick, King Dunlap among Chargers dealing with injuries


The Chargers are short-handed as they try to mount a comeback against Denver.

Left tackle King Dunlap (concussion), outside linebacker Larry English (bicep) and fullback Le’Ron McClain (ankle) have all left with injuries, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union Tribune reported.

Also, center Nick Hardwick has missed time in the second half. According to the Union-Tribune, Hardwick has a stinger.

The offensive line injuries have necessitated widespread changes upfront.  Ohrnberger has filled in for Hardwick. Right tackle D.J. Fluker has moved to left tackle, with right guard Jeromey Clary stepping in at right tackle. Left guard Chad Rinehart moved to right guard, and backup Johnnie Troutman has entered the game at left guard.
