Tyrod Taylor Won’t File Grievance Against Chargers Or Team Doctor For Puncturing His Lung


Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor has decided not to file a grievance against the team or the doctor who accidentally punctured his lung before their Week 2 game this season, according to ESPN

Tyrod Taylor

Taylor was dealing with a rib injury, which led to him getting the injection before their game against the Chiefs. Unfortunately, the doctor accidentally punctured his lung upon giving him a painkilling injection.

Taylor wound up losing the starting job to rookie QB Justin Herbert and the NFLPA launched an investigation into the matter that has been wrapped up. 

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.
