Shark Bites

Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) was limited again in Thursday's practice. He's seemingly in line to start this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars, but we'll see how he's listed on Friday's final injury report.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) was a full participant in Thursday's practice for the 1st time since suffering that injury in Week 2. It's a sign that he'll at least be closer to 100% for this weekend's game vs. the Texans.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert (rib) will start today's game vs. the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Herbert still carries elevated risk playing through the rib injury, but he's available if you waited on him.

Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. It’s worth noting that, per The Athletic’s Daniel Popper, QB Chase Daniel was announced as the starter on the jumbotron about 30 minutes ago. Los Angeles also has all 3 QBs active today, rather than the usual 2. We’ll see if he can figure out who’s starting this game before kickoff.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen hears that the Chargers medical team has “encouraged” QB Justin Herbert to take the “long view” when deciding whether to play through his rib injury today. "The cartilage injury can last several weeks or several months," Mortensen adds. "Rib protector can’t help with rotation when Herbert twists and throws." It sure sounds like the team docs are hoping Herbert doesn't play vs. Jacksonville today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Chargers QB Justin Herbert (ribs) is a game-time decision for today's meeting with the Jaguars. Per Schefter, Herbert will decide during pre-game warmups whether to take a pain-killing injection in his fractured rib cartilage. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Herbert "was looking doubtful as of Friday ... but he's pushing hard to go now." And NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Herbert "threw some yesterday and felt better but not all the way there." This is a 4:05 pm ET kickoff, so we might not know Herbert's status until a little after 2:30. If you're hoping to use him, you need to have another late-game QB rostered. QB Chase Daniel will get the start for the Chargers if Herbert can't play.
