    Chargers rookie OL Forrest Lamp suffers torn ACL

    Disaster has struck the Los Angeles Chargers.

    The team announced that rookie guard Forrest Lamp has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee. The second-rounder was carted off the field during Wednesday's practice and will miss the entire season.

    It's a brutal blow for the Bolts, who have no idea when first-round wideout Mike Williams will return from a back injury that has nagged him all offseason. Considering how deep Los Angeles is at receiver, Lamp's loss is arguably the bigger setback here in August.


    The Chargers have struggled for years to solidify their line in front of quarterback Philip Rivers. Lamp was already looking the part in camp.

    "Everybody makes a big deal about (Rivers') interception total last year," said NFL Network draft guru Daniel Jeremiah. "I think a lot of that, you can point toward their inability to run the ball -- a little bit of that's on the offensive line -- and protect him.

    "Forrest Lamp, to me, I thought was the best interior lineman in the draft," Jeremiah said. "If you're looking for a silver lining, I guess the second-best interior lineman in the draft, Dan Feeney -- also drafted by the Chargers."

    Feeney, the team's third-round selection, has worked at center during camp, but could be asked to move to guard to help Los Angeles mask this loss. Kenny Wiggins and Chris Hairston also loom as possibiities, while Matt Slauson could flip over to the right side.

    Make no mistake: The Chargers, almost religiously, have been one of the league's most injury-battered clubs in recent seasons. Nothing has changed in 2017.

    The Chargers offense would be scary if they kept all their pieces instead of going to pieces. They still have enough to light it up. I still see them no less than 8-8.
    Thats all dependent on the OLINE and with Denvers defense I aint scared.

    maybe you should worry about elway and his piss poor attempts at drafting offensive players himself?
    I wasnt one of the Bosa nay sayers. but I might as well worry about something.

    It isn't like the Chargers injury list keeps me up at night!:thumb:

    I voted "NO! the kid can ball and will still have his hand in the dirt a lot!"
    To me, it was just a matter of how Bosa would fit that 3-4 scheme.

    some of you have no idea what his skillset is or why it translates to the NFL. by the way, mike williams can red shirt the entire season and the chargers offense will still be dynamic.

    meanwhile the broncos drafted a developmental LT in the first round, not even as good of a lineman prospect that the chargers got in the second, yet you guys wanna talk crap?


    his skillset is a poor route runner with no speed...before a herniated disc

    and your dynamic offense...with a HOF TE, and a veteran probowl qb, great wrs, great rbs ...your words

    vrs

    a basic rookie lead offense (with as you say no talent) scored only 4.1 points per game more and 23.7 more yards per game than the broncos

    and you can keep belittling bolles all you want...but when maylock has him a 1st rnd and second ranked OT
    as does walterfootball, draftscouts it simply makes you look stupid
