In a sad personnel move, The Chargers have released running back Fozzy Whittaker. Because of the injuries to The Chargers offensive line, the team signed offensive tackle Nick Becton in a corresponding move for depth.

Whittaker, was a preseason fan favorite for The Chargers. He came in and he earned his spot on the team. I hope i’m wrong but it would not surprise me if a team claims him off of waivers.

The signing of Becton means that King Dunlap will NOT be playing on Sunday. Philip Rivers and The Chargers offensive line will have some major issues come Sunday vs a fierce Dallas defense.
