Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor Won’t Be 100 Percent for Sunday’s Game

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn has consistently said that when Tyrod Taylor is 100 percent healthy, he’ll remain the team’s QB.

It might be an easier pitch to make knowing it’s unlikely Taylor will be ready to play this week, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday on Good Morning Football that Taylor seems unlikely to play this week following complications from a painkiller that was administered to address a rib injury.

“For him to be 100 percent this Sunday is theoretically possible but does not seem likely, based on what I know about the situation,” Rapoport noted.

Taylor was taken to the hospital and discharged Sunday. The veteran QB was on Friday’s injury report with a rib injury but wasn’t given a status as he fully intended to play with a flak jacket. The faulty injection, however, sidelined him for Week 2.

It could keep him out at least Week 3 as well, as the Chargers are likely to be cautious with the 31-year-old QB.
