NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Although the Los Angeles Chargers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, head coach Brandon Staley had high comments for Justin Herbert despite the young quarterback appearing to play through a rib ailment.
After the game, Staley provided a quick update on Herberts’ condition and said the team would know more about his injury—which he suspects is a rib injury—on Friday.
“Hes OK. It was a challenging game. You won’t see a quarterback play harder, sacrifice more for their team, or convince them to give them a shot than him at any level of football “Staley stated categorically.
NFL COMMENDATION FOR JUSTIN HERBERT FOR PLAYING THROUGH PAIN TO KEEP CHARGERS IN GAME
“Nobody else is capable of what he is. Nobody. He displayed great bravery. He demonstrated to us what he does every day—that we were never out of the fight—and he gave us another chance.”
Halfway through the fourth quarter, Herbert was knocked out for a while after taking a significant hit from Chiefs defensive end Mike Danna. However, he only missed one play as a result.
In order to set up the Chargers’ subsequent score, he returned and threw a 35-yard pass to DeAndre Carter.

He took some significant knocks throughout the difficult NFL game, but none of them prevented him from saving his team, as he always does, according to Staley.
Herbert underwent X-rays following the game and will have a series of tests on Friday, according to the NFL Network, but Staley didn’t think twice to tell reporters on Thursday night that he had no concerns about Herbert moving forward.
