BREAKING: D.J. Fluker injured in practice

This is not good news. Not good at all.

Well today just got pretty crappy.

This is not good news at all. The line was already suspect and needed all the starters back healthy to have a chance to have a bounce back year. D.J. had been looking to improve on last year, his first at guard, and this will not help. Hopefully this winds up not being very serious, but being in a boot and on a crutch is never a good sign.

It looks like the team will be sending Fluker to get an MRI so we should hear something in the next few days. At a minimum I would say his preseason is done at this point, hopefully not more than that, especially with the team also losing Donavon Clark.

A quick look at who’s available has a familiar name on the list in Louis Vasquez. It doesn’t look like the team has made a signing to correspond with Clark going on the IR so there is still a spot to fill, I would expect that to be an interior lineman.
