After the Chargers’ 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Thursday Night Football, the Chargers’ coach was kept up to date on Justin Herbert’s injury.

Updating about Justin Herbert’s injury


Because of Justin Herbert’s brilliance, the Chargers have vaulted into the competitor group.

In the Chargers’ loss, Herbert finished 33-of-48 for 334 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. The 2021 Pro Bowler has flung for 613 yards and six touchdowns through two weeks of the season.

Brandon Staley – Chargers head coach told correspondents on Wednesday that quarterback Justin Herbert is “day-to-day” as he recovers from a rib cartilage fracture.

Per ESPN, Staley said that “He’s gotten a lot of rest since the last game”. “I know that he was able to do some light throwing yesterday, some rotational work, but we’re just going to take it day by day and see where his comfort level is.”

“It will start with him and then obviously him feeling good about what the medical team feels like is best, him weighing the options and then us making a good decision”.

Herbert is “more comfortable,” according to Staley, nearly a week after the injury.

While backed – up Jacob Eason and Chase Daniel handled flinging repetitions in practice, Staley did not rule Herbert out of playing against the Jaguars on Sunday. However, whether or not Herbert plays is determined by the signal caller.
