Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Accidental injury mires season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor completed 16 of 30 passes for 208 yards across two different games in the 2020 season.

The veteran really only played one game, starting the season opener before a medical accident left Taylor with a punctured lung, which forced rookie Justin Herbert into the starting lineup. The 2020 No. 6 overall pick ran off with the job from there, eventually setting a number of rookie passing records en route to being a frontrunner for the Rookie of the Year award. With Taylor set to enter unrestricted free agency this offseason, the 31-year-old could try to catch on with another team that may give him an opportunity at a starting job.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Active Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

The veteran was considered questionable with the injury to his ribs, but he'll be suiting up for Sunday's contest. Taylor will continue to serve as the backup to starter Justin Herbert.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Officially questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Taylor managed to suit up as Los Angeles' No. 2 quarterback Week 10 despite his lingering ribs injury, but he can't be considered a lock to take the field against the Jets. Easton Stick will slot in as the backup to Justin Herbert if Taylor can't go.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Ribs still bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor was a nonparticipant at Wednesday's practice due to a rib injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Taylor was able to suit up behind starting QB Justin Herbert for last Sunday's game against the Raiders, but he appears to still be battling the rib issue that forced him to miss games early in the season. The veteran will look to get healthy, but it appears he'll only have a chance to see the field again this season with an injury or poor play from Herbert. If Taylor misses Week 11, Easton Stick would assume backup duties for the contest.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Will dress against Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Friday that Taylor (chest) will back up Justin Herbert against the Raiders on Sunday, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Taylor was inactive for the past two games despite practicing fully, but he'll finally be active again in this battle of west coast teams. He's unlikely to see the field barring an injury to Herbert, as the rookie has hit the ground running as a starter.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Practicing fully again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (chest) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Taylor practiced fully in each of the last two weeks but was ultimately inactive, and that should be the expected regimen at this point. The 31-year-old quarterback hasn't played since a team doctor punctured his lung with a pain-killing injection prior to the Week 2 matchup against the Chiefs. If Taylor sits out again Sunday versus the Raiders, Easton Stick will back up Justin Herbert.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (chest) is inactive for Sunday's game at Denver, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

The 31-year-old was considered questionable after practicing as a full participant all week for the second straight week, but he's once again inactive. Easton Stick will once again serve as the backup to Justin Herbert with Taylor not in uniform.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Questionable again Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Broncos.

Taylor practiced fully all week, but he followed the same course last week and was ultimately inactive, as he's still working his way back from the punctured lung he sustained when a team doctor misplaced a pain-killing injection ahead of a Week 2 loss to the Chiefs. It wouldn't be surprising if Taylor is inactive once again, which would make Easton Stick the backup to Justin Herbert on Sunday.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Full participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Taylor practiced fully last Wednesday but was ultimately inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, so he's not in the clear yet. The 31-year-old quarterback hasn't played since a team doctor accidentally punctured his lung while administering a pain-killing injection prior to a Week 2 matchup against the Chiefs. If Taylor sits out again, Easton Stick will serve as Justin Herbert's backup again Sunday versus Denver.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Won't go against Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs/chest) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Jacksonville.

The 31-year-old signal-caller has been inactive since a team doctor accidentally punctured his lung with a pain-killing injection prior to Week 2's matchup against the Chiefs. Though Taylor was capable of logging a full practice session Wednesday, the outlook of his injury has not progressed to the point where he is ready for game action. North Dakota State standout Easton Stick will serve as the backup quarterback Sunday should an injury arise to starter Justin Herbert.

October 23, 2020 03:56 PM
Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs/chest) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

If Taylor's active for the first time since having his lung punctured by a pain-killing injection prior to Week 2, he will back up rookie Justin Herbert, who topped 300 yards in his first two starts and added a 7:1 TD:INT in the two subsequent games. Depending on Taylor's health, the Chargers could opt to keep third-stringer Easton Stick active as well.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Upgraded Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs/chest) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Prior to a Week 6 bye, Taylor had missed the past four games after receiving a pain-killing injection prior to a Week 2 loss to the Chiefs that accidentally punctured his lung. Though Taylor is apparently back to full health, coach Anthony Lynn already confirmed earlier this month that Justin Herbert would serve as the Chargers' starting quarterback moving forward. Taylor should now assume backup duties for the Week 7 game against Jacksonville, with Easton Stick relegated to the No. 3 position on the depth chart.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Out once more
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (ribs/chest) has been ruled out ahead of Monday's contest against the Saints, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Taylor will miss his fourth consecutive game due to the pain-killing injection which accidentally punctured his lung prior to the start of the Week 2 game against the Chiefs. More importantly, coach Anthony Lynn confirmed earlier this week that No. 6 overall pick Justin Herbert would be the starter moving forward once Taylor returned from injury. Easton Stick will act as the primary backup to Herbert on Monday.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Loses starting job to Herbert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn has announced that Taylor (ribs/chest) will back up Justin Herbert once he's cleared to play, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County reports.

The Chargers had originally planned to ease Herbert -- who was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft -- into his anticipated role as the team's franchise QB, but that process was accelerated when he played very well after Taylor suffered a punctured lung while receiving a pain-killing injection to his rib area just before Los Angeles' Week 2 kickoff. If Taylor is unable to bounce back in time for Monday night's game against the Saints, Easton Stick will continue to serve as Herbert's backup in Week 5.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest in Tampa Bay.

Officially, Taylor will miss a third consecutive contest due to his injection mishap prior to Week 2. In his stead, rookie first-round pick Justin Herbert will continue to lead the Chargers offense.

September 30, 2020 08:32 PM
Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Won't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (chest) won't practice Wednesday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Though the Chargers haven't ruled Taylor out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, he's still expected to remain sidelined for a third straight game while Justin Herbert picks up another start at quarterback. Herbert will thus take first-team practice reps Wednesday, while the Chargers continue to view Taylor as week-to-week, per Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Not ruled out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Anthony Lynn said Monday that he's "not in a position" to rule Taylor (chest) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

Taylor is recovering from both a punctured lung sustained Week 2 and cracked ribs suffered during the season opener, and Adam Schefter of ESPN previously reported that he's considered unlikely to face the Buccaneers. Lynn has stated on multiple occasions that Taylor will reclaim the starting job when fully healthy, so his chances of returning Week 4 can't be ruled out, but it looks as though Justin Herbert at least is trending toward receiving another chance to showcase his talents under center.

Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Unlikely for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (chest), who has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, is unlikely to gain clearance to play Week 4 at Tampa Bay, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

In addition to dealing with the cracked ribs he sustained in the Chargers' season-opening win over the Bengals, Taylor is recovering from a punctured lung, the result of a misplaced injection he received from a team doctor prior to the Week 2 loss to the Chiefs. Justin Herbert took over as the starter for that game on short notice and will likely be under center again for at least two more games, as doctors have advised Taylor to avoid strenuous activity for two weeks. Head coach Anthony Lynn has said that Taylor will reclaim the starting job when healthy, but the Chargers' thinking on that front could change depending on how well Herbert performs Weeks 3 and 4.

September 25, 2020 04:12 PM
Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Officially ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor (lung) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Taylor, who suffered a punctured lung while receiving a pain-killing injection to his rib area just before last Sunday's kickoff, will sit out Week 3 action, at a minimum, which sets the stage for rookie Justin Herbert to make his second straight start this weekend. It doesn't seem likely that Taylor will be available Week 4 either, while the Chargers have yet to outline a return timetable for the veteran signal-caller.

September 23, 2020 08:56 PM
Chargers' Tyrod Taylor: Expected to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Doctors have advised Taylor, who suffered a punctured lung Sunday, not to play for an indefinite period, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Taylor suffered the injury in the hours leading up to the Chargers' Week 2 loss to the Chiefs, when a team doctor accidentally punctured the quarterback's lung while administering a pain-killing injection to his rib area. The Chargers will likely offer further comment on Taylor's status in the next couple of days, but at this stage, Justin Herbert is on track to make a second straight start Sunday against the Panthers.
