Justin Herbert saw his first career NFL game last week after Tyrod Taylor suddely couldn’t play, but no reason was given for his sudden absence.
On Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the team doctor “accidentally punctured Tyrod Taylor’s lung” just before kickoff.
Doctors have since advised Tyrod not to play “indefinitely” due to his punctured lung.
Justin Herbert will be seeing more action this week and quite possibly even longer.
Just before kickoff, Justin Herbert was told that he’d be the starter. He wound up having an impressive first NFL start, throwing for 311 yards and scoring two total touchdowns. The Chargers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 23-20 in overtime.
