AP Source: Chargers' team doctor punctured Taylor's lung

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor missed last Sunday's game because a team doctor accidentally punctured his lung, according to a person familiar with the case.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because of medical restriction issues.

Rookie Justin Herbert was the Chargers' surprise starter in last Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Anthony Lynn said he didn't find out until less than five minutes before kickoff that Taylor would be unable to play.
