This is amazing news for the Chargers following a scary display on Thursday night against the Chiefs where he exited the game following a hit to his midsection. Herbert ended up returning to and finishing the game but looked to be in discomfort for the remainder. Other reports stated that Herbert could be back at practice next week.
The third-year signal-caller will have ample time to get back to full health with nine days until their Week 3 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This is a situation to monitor throughout next week as Herbert looks to avoid any missed time. If he cannot go against Jacksonville, Chase Daniel will likely get the nod.
