Up a close loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, star quarterback Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers turned in another outstanding effort, save for one significant error.
Unfortunately, in the fourth quarter of the game, Herbert appeared to sustain a serious rib injury. The quarterback was observed in excruciating discomfort as the game came to a close, despite returning to action to throw a score.
Herbert's tenacity was demonstrated by the fact that he continued to play. Additionally, it appeared to suggest that the injury was not as severe as it first appeared.
After the game, the third-year quarterback was observed making his way to the X-ray room. During its post-game press conference, Amazon Prime confirmed that he was definitely getting X-rays.
It is obviously far too early to determine the potential severity of this damage. We shouldn't focus too much on Herbert's decision to rejoin the game after just one play. He is extremely resilient. He also appeared to be in pain.
