Chargers’ Tyrod Taylor will not file a grievance against team

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor will not file a grievance against his employer, according to ESPN. Taylor lost his starting job in Week 2 to rookie Justin Herbert.

He had 60 days to notify the league if he was going to file a grievance. However, he chose not to pursue it.

Before their Week 2 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Taylor was given a painkiller by a Chargers medical doctor. However, the injection caused Taylor to suffer a punctured lung. 

In Week 1, Taylor suffered two broken ribs against the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Taylor was supposed to get his starting job back. However, with the play of Herbert, head coach Anthony Lynn elected to keep the rookie in the starting role. 

The veteran quarterback had his claim looked into by the NFL Players Association. They did not find that Taylor suffered any loss of income. 

Following this incident, the NFLPA will work with the NFL on protocols to safely give its players painkiller injections. According to Ian Rapoport, the NFLPA is still looking into the matter.

Taylor has appeared in two games this season with one start. The 31-year-old went 16 of 30 for 208 yards. 

He has not thrown a touchdown or interception before Herbert became the starter.
