"He is in the building," Lynn said of Taylor. "He's doing fine. He's helping out with these young quarterbacks and helping get those guys ready to play."

Taylor was dealing with a rib injury suffered during a Week 1 victory against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he was expected to play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs after going through his regular warm-up routine.

When the Chargers took the field, however, Herbert, the team's No. 6 overall selection in the 2020 draft, was under center, getting the start in a surprise move. Midway through the first quarter of the game, the Chargers later listed Taylor as questionable with a chest injury. Later in the game, the team then listed Taylor as out.

Herbert completed 22 of 33 passes for 311 yards with one touchdown and one interception and helped L.A. take the defending Super Bowl champions to overtime before Kansas City prevailed, 23-20.

"Prior to kick off, Tyrod Taylor experienced difficulty breathing and was taken to the locker room for evaluation," the Chargers said in a statement after the game. "He was transported to the hospital shortly thereafter to undergo further evaluation. Taylor (chest) has since been discharged from the hospital. His status for next Sunday’s game will be determined later in the week."
