CHARLOTTE — Left tackle Russell Okung sat out Thursday’s practice with a groin injury.
The 31-year-old Okung missed three games with a groin issue in 2019 but doesn’t feel there’s any “direct correlation” between the two injuries.
“It’ll be what it is, and I’m going to work my butt off to be able to play this Sunday,” Okung said.
If Okung can’t play in Los Angeles, head coach Matt Rhule named Greg Little and former Charger Trent Scott as potential replacements. Since the start of training camp, Rhule has noticed significant progress from Little, who was a second-round pick last year.
“I think he’s a very good player, has really worked real hard this summer on his strength, on his confidence,” Rhule said. “I have full confidence in Greg.”
