Herbert suffered a left side the injury

when he was hit by Chiefs defensive end Mike Danna late in the Chargers’ 27-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 15

Chargers Coach Brandon Staley described Herbert as “day-by-day” on Friday

former NFL quarterback Matt Hasselbeck said, “I’ve had that injury and it stinks.”

Hasselbeck said on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown,” but former New York Jets and Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan was outspoken

Herbert’s injection would be, according to ESPN, guided by ultrasound to avoid hitting a lung

Herbert’s protection up front will likely also suffer a bit with center Corey Linsley listed as doubtful with a knee injury.
