Chargers coach Brandon Staley revealed Friday that quarterback Justin Herbert sustained a fracture in his rib cartilage during Thursday night’s 27–24 loss to the Chiefs.
The announcement comes only a few hours after NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Herbert was set to undergo a “battery” of tests to determine the severity of a rib/chest injury he suffered late in the game. Staley told reporters the team has listed the star QB as day-to-day, but remain encouraged by the initial diagnosis.
“I think we got good news,” Staley said, per NFL Network’s Taylor Bisciotti. “It’s going to come down to comfort. We aren’t going to know more about how he feels until later on in the week.”
