Annie’s got you covered with news on D.J. Fluker’s ankle injury and how he used visualization techniques to get better at the right guard position; plus, possible O-Line moves and McCoy’s take on Melvin Gordon’s fumble.
Sunday’s big win over the Detroit Lions was tempered by right guard D.J. Fluker being carted off the field in the third quarter.
Fluker — who appeared to suffer an ankle injury — left Qualcomm Stadium in a walking boot, using crutches to prop up his large frame.
On Monday, it was reported that Fluker suffered a high ankle sprain, which could sideline him for at least 4-6 weeks. The tackle-turned-guard had just seemed to get comfortable in his new position (introduced to him in the second week of training camp) and the injury would be a blow not only to Fluker, but to an offensive line that had just begun a process of building chemistry.
“We have a couple options with what we can do,” McCoy said Monday. “We’ll talk about that as a staff over the next couple days. We’ll go through the week of practice and see what’s best for the team on Sunday.”
