In a move reported via Marty Caswell, the Chargers have released Fozzy Whittaker and moved OL Nick Becton up from the practice squad. Although Whittaker has had little impact in the running game, he has been the starter at Kick Returner for the Bolts. This most likely means that either Eddie Royal or Keenan Allen will see duties returning kicks.
Also worth noting, as mentioned in the tweet below, this does not bode well for the health of King Dunlap.
Chargers have signed OT Nick Becton off practice squad & released Fozzy Whittaker. Might indicate status of King Dunlap for Sunday

The Chargers are banged up at a lot of positions and are having to improvise a bit. As if the team didn’t already have their work cut out for them versus the Cowboys on Sunday. Though Dunlap’s status has been up in the air, I was holding out hope for a return in what is a big game despite it only being week 4. The difference between being 1-3 and 2-2 is much bigger than the record would indicate.
