Chargers left tackle Russell Okung left the game after Philip Rivers‘ first interception. Although the team listed him as questionable to return, Okung remained on the sideline.

He played only seven snaps in the loss to the Raiders, and Rivers took a beating with right tackle Sam Tevi also out.

Okung underwent an MRI on his injured groin Friday, and results revealed a strain, coach Anthony Lynn said, via Daniel Popper of TheAthletic.com.

Lynn characterized Okung as “questionable” for next week.

Tevi underwent arthroscopic surgery Friday on his meniscus, Lynn said.

Rivers took five sacks and five other quarterback hits Thursday night. He also threw three interceptions and fumbled, though the Chargers recovered the fumble.

  1. No matter how many times the refs tried to give this game to the chargers, they just couldn’t win it.

    Go Raiders….Beat the Refs!!!

  2. Looked like the Raiders were using the old Seahawks technique – have everyone grab and hold downfield on every play and dare the refs to throw the flag on every play. You get some penalties that hurt but it can also pay off when the other team gets frustrated and begins changing their routes; really hurt the Chargers last night, although the inability to block the Raiders DEs was the biggest factor.

  3. The bolts’ starting tackles were out. They spotted us 10 points and 2 Ints. We were harassing PRIVERS all night.
    We ended up with 5 sacks and 3 Ints (could’ve been 5), and STILL have to sweat the game ’til the last whistle.
    What is going on?
    You do that to any other legit contender, and you’re going to lose 35-0. Your back ups will be finishing the game in mop up duty.

  4. If you give up 5 sacks and 3 Ints against any other AFC contender, you’re going to lose 35-0, not 26-24.
    Derek Carr has a pedestrian 218 yards/ 1 TD, and Gruden is praising him for “managing the game well”?
    Carr could easily put up double that yardage and triple the TDS if he were being utilized correctly.
    You don’t sign a QB to a $125M deal to “manage the game well”.
    You pay $25M per year to have him dominate, which Carr has already proven he can do.
    What is going on with the Raiders?
    Ciaching in both sides of the ball is suspect.
    Above average talent on Defense, we still have to hang on for dear life at the end, hoping the other team does what Rivers did, instead of what Deshaun Watson did.
    Above average QB and OL, we have the ball AND the lead with 4 minutes left, and some bonehead calls a play that nets 3 yards on 3rd and 7.
    Punt.
    Hang in for dear life!
    Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. That is not a “Cosch of the year” resume.

    Just win baby.

  6. “LA” Chargers have no offensive line. Lamp and Feeny have been mediocre. Rivers took the blame but the play calling considering little protection of Rivers was awful. Shorter, quick passes would have been better especially in the last minute. Lynn should have taken charge and over ruled his new OC.

  7. Rivers has always had a weak spot, just like brady, if they get a lot of pressure they tend to screw things up.
    Rivers had zero protection
    That said, I think his time is coming to an end and I hope the Bolts get a high draft pick because we need a mobile qb.
