The Chargers’ starting right guard, Jamaree Salyer, is officially questionable to return with an eye injury that he suffered at the end of the first quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 18.

Salyer has been one of the most consistent pieces of the Bolts’ offensive line over the past two seasons. He has played almost every snap available to him since Week 4 of his rookie season after the Bolts’ drafted him in the sixth round of the 2022 draft out of Georgia after Rashawn Slater was ruled out for the rest of the season. Jamaree stepped in to replace the Bolts’ franchise left tackle and he did an outstanding job even earning national attention. Brandon Staley and Kellen Moore moved him to right guard in the off-season, as a testament to his versatility, and he has started every game at that spot since.

The man who has stepped in to replace him is Austen Pleasants, an undrafted rookie out of Ohio, who is taking his very first regular season snaps of his career.

Update: Jamaree Salyer has returned to the field in the second quarter
