Despite QB Philip Rivers being sacked a career-high seven times in the Chargers' Week Six loss to the Rams, we hear that the team does not have plans to make any changes along the offensive line. Rivers, who ranks second in the league in most times sacked, behind only the Bears' Jay Cutler, said after the contest that the protection was not the reason San Diego lost, although it did hinder the offense on numerous drives. Head coach Norv Turner also expressed confidence in the line, placing blame on the receivers for not running better routes to help Rivers get rid of the ball more quickly. With OLT Marcus McNeill back from his holdout, the Chargers could move Brandyn Dombrowski, who fared well while filling in for McNeill, to right tackle. However, the club is not yet ready to pull the plug on ORT Jeromey Clary, who has been a full-time starter since the 2008 season.
