The Los Angeles Chargers are struggling out of the gate in Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders, and they now face a big loss. Offensive tackle Russell Okung suffered a groin injury and is questionable to return. Rookie Trey Pipkins replaced Okung.

It’s been a rough start for quarterback Philip Rivers, and it is showing no signs of getting better with this injury. Rivers has thrown two interceptions and been sacked twice, with the second sack coming after Okung went out.

If Okung is unable to return, his absence beyond this game will be critical to consider as you look at Chargers fantasy options — particularly Philip Rivers.
