By now, I'm sure you have heard about the recent revealings in Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor's injury saga. If you haven't -- in a nutshell, Taylor had a rib injury and received an injection for said injury before Sunday's game. It was revealed today that the team doctor who administered the injection had mistakenly punctured Taylor's lung, making this one of the craziest things I've ever heard happening in the NFL.
My first thought was -- lawsuit! The NFLPA has since said they are investigating the incident, as they should.
Aka -- this is a big mess.
The team also announced today that rookie QB Justin Herbert will start Sunday.
The Los Angeles Chargers will be without center Mike Pouncey as they open the season. LA has already lost defensive leader Derwin James for the year.
Let's hope this is the end for the bad luck Chargers this season. So far, it hasn't been good.
Just last week, the Los Angeles Chargers said wideout Mike Williams would be out for a while with a shoulder injury. Now that might not be the case. He may even return to action Week One, according to offensive coordinator Shane Steichen.
If this is the case, the time and rest have been on Williams' side. Shoulder injuries aren't suitable for anyone, but especially for wide receivers; that's something you do not want to mess with.
I hope Williams' injury may not have been as severe as initially stated because he's bound to repeat last season's success.
I feel like we all knew this, but Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn confirmed that Tyrod Taylor will start at quarterback Week One.
Translation: Taylor will be the starter until he isn't anymore. Next up for the job is rookie QB Justin Herbert.
Star defensive end Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers agreed to a monster deal last week, and normally those huge deals take a long time to throw together -- you have negotiations, headaches, all that good stuff. Not Bosa's. His contract came together rather easily.
Bosa's deal ended up being a (I'll say it again) huge deal -- five years, $135 million, with $78 million guaranteed at signing, and $102 million guaranteed total. What do you even do with all of that?
Bosa came into the league as the third-overall pick in the 2016 draft - since then, he's who should come to mind when you think of a star defensive end. And it seems he'll be in Los Angeles for a while. And if not, he can always buy a few houses there.
