Chargers Team Doctor Punctured Tyrod Taylor's Lung: Broadcasters during the Chargers/Chiefs game on Sunday were mystified by the last-minute absence of quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who wasn't on the injury list but did not make the start. Coach Anthony Lynn revealed that Taylor missed the game because the team doctor accidentally punctured his lung while administering a painkiller injection for Taylor's cracked ribs. He's out indefinitely.

SportsFilter: The Tuesday Huddle

Trevor Lawrence is quickly getting more than good enough to win but I do miss seeing DJ Chark in a Jags uniform.

Even though DJ makes Detroit better and I want the Lions to be relevant and have a good roster.

I didn't have the intestinal fortitude to watch the film of that Niners game.

Jimmy was more or less worth what they paid him last year and is more or less worth what they're paying him this year. Unless he's viewed strictly as a backup to Trey Lance, in which case, he's the highest paid QB2 in the league.

Since they both left the Patriots roster, Jacoby Brissett has gradually gotten better at playing the QB position professionally, and Jimmy G has gotten progressively worse.

On behalf of rcade's safety, I'm visualizing Hurricane Ian as a long pass being thrown by Carson Wentz.

That way, if Wentz was aiming at Jacksonville, the ball would actually go to Governor DeSantis in Tallahassee.

My phone says that momentum is building among NFL owners toward ousting Daniel Snyder.

C'mon, phone. You've told me shaky stuff before. Be right about this.

No amount of ownership sentiment shift is going to result in progress if Jerry Jones and the Mara-Tisch group haven't bought in.

Syracuse has no business being in the ACC. We've got enough orange teams already.

Wish they would go back to the Big East or to another conference.

They have a knack for being Virginia's nemesis. Including last night on the football field.

Virginia has notched a few lacrosse and women's soccer whuppings to help ease the pain but beyond that, for Cavalier fans medicating traditionally and affordably, the remedy of choice is grain alcohol and bottom shelf bourbon.

It would be a totally Browns predicament for the team to be 8-3 and loving life with Jacoby Brissett when guaranteed gazillionaire Deshaun Watson returns from his suspension.

I'm fighting Father Time as best I can, dressing like a high school boy and the Lt. Governor of Pennsylvania.

I stay in shorts until around Thanksgiving. Or until women my age start looking at me with a pained expression.

With woolen socks and flannel boxers, a person can go far. And I know damn well I'm more comfortable than King Charles au naturel in a kilt at Balmoral. Put all the highland sweaters you want on him, there's still gonna be a draft.

In my mind, I see Howard in his day of worship vestments and regalia. Which is quite a distinguished vision. Other than that, I figure he's in his plate umpire ninja turtle getup.

The new logo is nice, but Howard and I have our attention directed elsewhere.

We'll be in Worcester attending a music performance by rap legend Antonio Brown.

If we're lucky, he'll perform his big hit "Moving Day" with the classic refrain "The fuck outta here".

I remember when the 1984 Bears suffered a painful loss in the NFC Championship game. They were coming on strong until then and everyone knew they would be an express freight train in 1985.

Probably too early to say it this year, but the 2022 Bills are pumping out a similar vibe. And there's not a whole lot of cupcake on their schedule. It ought to be fun to watch.

There are gamedays when you can't really tell how tricky the weather conditions are inside the Bills home stadium until you watch someone besides Josh Allen throw the football.

The 49ers' new hit single with apologies to Michael Jackson:

The kid went out and won

NC State may be 3-0 but NoMich is probably thinking about making a pilgrimage out to Boone to catch some of that App. State magic.

I can't tell if rcade means Roger Penske or Roger Maris.
