Chargers Injury Update: Eddie Royal exits with rib injury

By on 10/13/2014 03:57:00 PM

San Diego Chargers wide-receiver Eddie Royal left Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders with an apparent rib injury. Early in the first quarter, Royal had burned the Oakland secondary for a twenty-nine yard touchdown reception that got the Chargers' offense rolling.  Later in the first-half he pulled in a twenty-yard reception, but was later seen on the side-lines with a wrap on his flank.

Rib injuries in general are hard to predict when relating to a player's status.  Royal ended up missing the rest of the Chargers' victory over the Raiders which could be seen as a precaution pending x-rays and further testing.  However, given the contact receivers take on a week-to-week basis it wouldn't be surprising to see Royal limited in practice across this week as the Chargers prepare to play the Kansas City Chiefs.
