The LA Chargers might need to find a new team doctor.

Before Sunday’s Chargers-Chiefs game, Chargers starting QB Tyrod Taylor was mysteriously absent due to an undisclosed chest injury.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Taylor’s injury was caused by the Chargers team doctor who accidentally punctured the QB’s lung while administrating a pain-killing shot to his ribs.


A Los Angeles Chargers team doctor accidentally punctured quarterback Tyrod Taylor’s lung just before kickoff Sunday while trying to administer a pain-killing injection to the quarterback’s cracked ribs, league and team sources told ESPN.

That is the reason Taylor did not start Sunday and rookie quarterback Justin Herbert unexpectedly did against the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs, in an arrangement that is likely to continue Sunday against the Carolina Panthers and quite possibly beyond.

NFL fans immediately had hilarious reactions to the doctor’s unfortunate mistake.
