In a tweet from Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune, the Chargers will most likely be without 3 starters on the Offensive line for the game against the Cowboys. See the tweet below.
Three starting OL — Dunlap (concussion), Clary (clavicle) & Rinehart (foot) — expected to sit for Chargers vs DAL (2nd in NFL w/ 13 sacks)

Had the team been going into the game with it’s starters it still would have had it’s work cut out for them. Dallas switched from a 3-4 to a 4-3 defense under new Defensive Coordinator Monte Kiffin. Expect the Cowboys to test the Offensive line with a lot of pressure.
This news obviously does not bode well for Philip Rivers. Look for the Chargers to attempt to lean on the running game and it’s safe to assume getting the ball out of Rivers’ hands quickly will continue to be focused on this Sunday.
