Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor Suffers Chest Injury, Justin Herbert Gets Start


Justin Herbert surprisingly started Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. 

The Chargers later announced that QB Tyrod Taylor is questionable with a chest injury.

Taylor reportedly suffered the chest injury during pregame warmups and before kickoff, which is why there was no buzz about Herbert starting.

Taylor, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. After four years in Baltimore, Taylor signed on with the Bills for the 2015 season. Buffalo elected to trade Taylor to the Browns for a third-round pick last year. 

Taylor played out the final year of a two-year, $30.5 million contract before agreeing to a two-year contract worth $11 million with the Chargers last year. 

In 2020, Taylor has appeared in one game for the Chargers and completed 16 of 30 attempts (53.3 percent) for 208 yards and no touchdowns. He has also rushed for seven yards.
