Did you wonder if the Chargers were keeping Covid19 complications secret? It's worse

They acted very strangely about their starting quarterback:

ESPN today:
A Los Angeles Chargers team doctor accidentally punctured quarterback Tyrod Taylor's lung just before kickoff Sunday while trying to administer a pain-killing injection to the quarterback's cracked ribs, league and team sources told ESPN.

That is the reason Taylor did not start Sunday and rookie quarterback Justin Herbert unexpectedly did


Taylor suffered two cracked ribs early during the Chargers' Week 1 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but he didn't have an MRI on the injury until later that week.


He planned to take a pain-killing injection for the rib injury Sunday, but after the Chargers doctor punctured his lung, Taylor wound up in the hospital Sunday night to be treated for the injury and the struggles he had breathing.
This isn’t the first time the Chargers have had issues with team doctors. In fact, malpractice seems to be a hobby for the team — whether they’re in San Diego or Los Angeles. The team’s former doctor...has a vast resume of malpractice charges and allegations against him. Now, in a twist of irony, [the former team doctor is active] on Twitter where he offers vague, rapid-fire injury analysis is “reporting” on malpractice in the Chargers
Has anyone ever posted a study of the average number of catastrophic injuries in a football game? How many concussions, torn ACLs, broken bones happen in the typical college or pro game?

If you live in Los Angeles and want to avoid the Chargers doctors, here's the team's list.
