Justin Herbert just had one of the most-exciting games by a Chargers quarterback in recent memory this evening. However, all the splash plays against the Chiefs weren’t enough for the rookie to take the job away from Tyrod Taylor.

In his post-game Zoom call with the media, head coach Anthony Lynn said if Tyrod Taylor is fully-healthy, he’s going to be the team’s starter. Taylor sat out today’s game due to chest pains that he started experiencing during pre-game warmups. He was eventually taken to the hospital, but no other information is known past that.

In Taylor’s start against the Bengals, he completed 16-of-30 passes for 208 yards and zero touchdowns or interceptions.

In Hebert’s start against the Chiefs, he threw for 311 yards on 22-of-33 passing with one touchdown, one interception, and one rushing score.

It’s going to be really interesting to see what happens at practice this week if Taylor ends up being healthy by Tuesday. Now I’m not the one who makes the decisions for the Chargers, but if I was, I’d say Tyrod Time is quickly running out.
