Parham did not play in Sunday's preseason loss after aggravating a tailbone injury in Friday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Parham arguably has been one of the team's biggest training-camp standouts to date, seemingly gaining an innate rapport with quarterback Justin Herbert, particularly in the red zone. The injury, which initially occurred earlier in the week and was aggravated in a jump-ball situation Friday, doesn't seem to be serious, but any lingering issues could allow for 2021 third-round pick Tre' McKitty to play his way into a larger role behind starter Jared Cook.
