Chargers left tackle Russell Okung left the game after Philip Rivers‘ first interception. Although the team listed him as questionable to return, Okung remained on the sideline.

He played only seven snaps in the loss to the Raiders, and Rivers took a beating with right tackle Sam Tevi also out.

Okung underwent an MRI on his injured groin Friday, and results revealed a strain, coach Anthony Lynn said, via Daniel Popper of TheAthletic.com.

Lynn characterized Okung as “questionable” for next week.

Tevi underwent arthroscopic surgery Friday on his meniscus, Lynn said.

Rivers took five sacks and five other quarterback hits Thursday night. He also threw three interceptions and fumbled, though the Chargers recovered the fumble.
