The Los Angeles Chargers offensive line has suffered another setback. Starting left guard Matt Slauson will miss the rest of the season with a biceps injury.
The injury had been reported on Sunday evening by Dan Sileo of The Mighty 1090AM in San Diego. Bolts head coach Anthony Lynn confirmed the news on Monday.
Slauson, a nine-year NFL veteran, was hurt midway through the third quarter of the Chargers’ third consecutive victory, 21-0 over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Rookie third-round pick Dan Feeney will step into Slauson’s spot on the Chargers’ starting offensive line. He has received increased playing time during the season while preparing for the role.
Lynn indicated the Chargers also are likely to sign another veteran offensive lineman.
Prior to the season, the Chargers lost rookie offensive lineman Forrest Lamp for the season to a knee injury during training camp.
The Chargers travel to Foxboro, Massachusetts this Sunday, October 29, to square off with the defending Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots.
