Justin Herbert leaves for a play after a hit to the midsection

The Los Angeles Chargers are taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in a Thursday Night Football showdown, Mike Florio and Chris Simms explain why this could be a close game and who may come out on top.

The Chargers’ offensive line has taken some hits tonight. Right tackle Trey Pipkins went out with an ankle injury, and center Corey Linsley didn’t come back for the second half with a knee injury.

That left Justin Herbert to take a number of hits.

He did not get up after a hard hit from Mike Danna to the midsection with 4:55 remaining in the fourth quarter. Herbert went off under his own power.

Chase Daniel replaced Herbert for one play before Herbert returned, but on the next play back, Frank Clark hit Herbert hard. Herbert got up slowly from that hit.

Herbert was in obvious pain but stayed in before back-to-back incompletions forced a punt.
