In the second half of Thursday's defeat to the Chiefs, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert sustained a significant blow to the midriff. He only missed one play before continuing.

Whatever the damage was or is, it had an impact on him.  On the sideline, he was pointing at a spot on his torso's left side.

At one point, while clearly feeling uncomfortable, he declined the chance to run for a first down.

After the game, coach Brandon Staley told reporters that Herbert is "OK" and that he doesn't anticipate the injury to be a problem moving forward, according to Daniel Popper.

Staley claimed Herbert has a stomach ailment, maybe ribs. After the game, Herbert did not address the media because he was having X-rays.

Before facing the Jaguars in Week Three, Herbert gets three extra days.  There is undoubtedly a problem that needs at least some time to resolve.

Will Herbert eventually be late? Only time will tell.

He made several courageous attempts to change the outcome on Thursday night, and his big throws helped to reduce the final deficit to three.
