Chargers G Johnnie Troutman Suffers Broken Arm, Out Indefinitely


Ross Jones of FOX Sports reports that Chargers G Johnnie Troutman sustained a broken arm during last night’s preseason game.

  • Jones adds that the injury will keep Troutman out of the lineup indefinitely.

Troutman appeared to have a knee or leg injury, but it was later announced that he left the game with an arm injury.

It’s likely that San Diego will move forward with former first-round pick D.J. Fluker moving inside to guard and free agent addition Joe Barksdale operating as their right tackle.

Troutman, 27, is in the final year of his four-year, $2.3 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.542 million for the 2015 season.

Last year, Troutman appeared in 15 games for the Chargers, but wound up being placed on season-ending injured reserve with knee and ankle injuries in late December. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 77 guard out of 78 qualifying players last year.
