Offensive Line Rankings and Notes: Week 9

Offensive line related news, injuries and updates, prior to week nine of the regular season.


LA Chargers up 11 slots

After missing most of the season recovering from blood clots (pulmonary embolism), left tackle (and team captain) Russell Okung returned to the lineup last week for the win against Chicago. Okung's participation was supposed to be limited for the game but he played 80% of snaps before yielding to Trent Scott. Scott (a natural right tackle playing out of position) relieved Okung for a calf injury and the line immediately sacrificed a sack to Khalil Mack, the first they allowed during the contest. With Okung, the line was able to create a perfect pocket against the Bears' notorious edge rushers. Despite his calf injury, expect Okung to start again at Green Bay. In other news, center Scott Quessenberry has done an acceptable job in place of Mike Pouncey and he could prove himself to be a starting quality player, if not in Los Angeles, then for another team. The Chargers' offensive line is a mid-tier unit with Okung, trending upward in the latest ranks.
