  Chargers | Week 7 injury report for LA Chargers    Fri Oct 23, 03:53 PM

Los Angeles Chargers OG Trai Turner (groin) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 7 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. OT Storm Norton (knee) also did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. OT Bryan Bulaga (back) and WR K.J. Hill (hip) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and are listed as questionable. RB Justin Jackson (knee) and QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) practiced in full Friday and are also listed as questionable. OT Sam Tevi (thumb, ankle) was downgraded to a limited practice Friday but removed from the injury report. WR Keenan Allen (back) and DT Linval Joseph (elbow) practiced in full Friday and also no longer appear on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Bulaga's return would help the pass protection, but Justin Herbert has still thrived with the right side of his line out in recent weeks. Turner is a great run blocker, but the Chargers run game should still look good vs. Jacksonville.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert will remain the starting quarterback moving forward regardless of when Tyrod Taylor (chest, ribs) returns, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

  Chargers | Justin Herbert excelling under pressure    Tue Oct 6, 04:26 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert has thrown for a league-high 433 yards while under pressure, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Herbert is looking really good on the football field. He joins Patrick Mahomes as the only QBs since the merger with at least 850 passing yards and a 100-plus passer rating over their first three career games. Herbert is somewhat robotic in what he does, but he's athletic and has a big arm. The Chargers are not winning games, but Herbert is looking good for a rookie passer.
