    D.J. Fluker's body slam heard around the world came with a price. The San Diego Chargers tackle missed practice Thursday with a calf injury he says he suffered after throwing Oakland Raiderslinebacker Sio Moore to the ground last Monday night.

    "I felt it then," Fluker told the UT-San Diego. "A couple plays later, that's when I really felt it late third quarter."

    Fluker was asked if the now famous play was worth it.

    "It wasn't worth the injury," Fluker said. "It was worth the play. ... As an offensive lineman, I'm taught to finish, finish, finish."

    Fluker's finish cost his team yards because he was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the play. But the Chargers wound up scoring on the drive, and the play instantly became an internet sensation. Fluker's teammates have also enjoyed watching it on film this week week.

    "They were excited," Fluker said. "They were like, 'Man, I've never seen anything like that before.' But I was worried about the consequences of the play."

    It sounds like Fluker has a solid chance to play on Monday night against the Colts, but he could be taped heavily.

    So if he doesn't play, how much do you like your 'choke slam from hell'?

    Clearly, Fluker didn't do the move correctly. He should have choked that Faider for at least a good two to three seconds more before slamming him...

    Then followed it up with a flying elbow of Clary's shoulders. He needs to get it right, this rookie shyte is not acceptable!
