Losing key contributors

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-14

Herbert has lost the majority of his offensive playmakers with the departure of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Austin Ekeler and Gerald Everett this offseason, Kris Rhim of ESPN.com reports.

That quartet accounted for 57 percent of Herbert's completions, pass yards and touchdowns last season. Still remaining on the roster are Joshua Palmer and Quentin Johnston, the latter of whom is likely to be asked up considerably in 2024. Coach Jim Harbaugh is also known for his desire to run the ball effectively, though Gus Edwards and Isaiah Spiller are an underwhelming duo atop the running back depth chart. All told, Herbert's supporting cast has taken a significant hit this offseason, even after taking into account that the team could be in line to draft a wide receiver or Brock Bowers with the fifth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Moves to IR, out for season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-12

The Chargers announced that Herbert will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a fracture to his right index finger and has been placed on injured reserve.

Confirming what Tom Pelissero of NFL Network and others reported minutes earlier, Herbert will miss the rest of the season after having surgery to address the injury he suffered in the second quarter of this past Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Broncos. Herbert should be back to full health by the start of OTAs in the spring, but he'll wrap up his fourth season in Los Angeles with a 65.1 percent completion rate for 3,134 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions to go with 52 carries for 228 yards and three more scores over his 13 appearances. Easton Stick will take over as the Chargers' starting quarterback beginning with Thursday's game in Las Vegas.

Gets season-ending surgery

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-12

Herbert will undergo surgery Tuesday on his fractured right index finger and is expected to miss the remainder of the season, sources tell Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The Chargers haven't officially confirmed that Herbert will be shut down for the season, but head coach Brandon Staley will most likely address the quarterback's status later Tuesday. In Herbert's upcoming absence, fifth-year signal-caller Easton Stick is slated to make his first NFL start Thursday versus the Raiders. Herbert finishes his fourth NFL season having completed 297 of 456 pass attempts (65.1 percent) for 3,134 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions to go with 228 yards and three scores on 52 carries over 13 appearances. He'll likely make a full recovery from surgery in advance of OTAs in the spring.

Procedure on finger likely

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-11

Herbert is reportedly likely to undergo a procedure Tuesday to address his fractured right index finger, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per the report, whether Herbert will have a chance to able to return to action this season will be determined by the anticipated procedure. Further details from the Chargers likely will emerge regarding the QB's status, but Schefter reported earlier Monday that Herbert isn't expected to play Thursday night against the Raiders. Easton Stick is next up for the team's signal-caller duties for any length of time Herbert misses.

Expected to miss Thursday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-11

Herbert (finger) is not expected to suit up Thursday versus the Raiders due to a right finger fracture, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Herbert suffered a fractured index finger on his right hand during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and though the Chargers are still determining exactly how much time the franchise quarterback will need to miss, it looks very unlikely that he'll be available on the road during Thursday Night Football. It remains to be seen whether Herbert will need to undergo surgery to address the injury, though he's undergoing further tests Monday. Easton Stick looks set to start Thursday in Herbert's stead, and it's possible he could have to helm Los Angeles' offense for an extender period.

Fractures finger in throwing hand

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Coach Brandon Staley said after Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Broncos that Herbert has a fractured index finger in his right hand, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Herbert dealt with an injured finger in his left, non-throwing hand earlier this season, but an injured finger in his throwing hand will be harder to navigate. Easton Stick replaced Herbert in the first half of the loss to the Broncos. The Chargers will be on a short week before facing the Raiders on Thursday, and Stick would likely get the start if Herbert isn't ready to play by then. Per Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times, Herbert will undergo additional tests Monday, and surgery may be needed to address the injury.

Ruled out of Sunday's game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Herbert won't return to Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a right finger injury.

Herbert previously dealt with a fractured middle finger on his non-throwing hand this season, but his new concern impacts his throwing hand. Considering he's been ruled out this time around, his status now will need to be monitored to get a sense of his availability for Thursday's game at Las Vegas and beyond. For the time being, Herbert will yield quarterback duties for the Chargers to Easton Stick.

Hurts finger Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Herbert exited Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a finger injury.

Before sustaining his finger injury, Herbert completed nine of 17 pass attempts for 96 yards and a pick. In his absence, Easton Stick is in at quarterback for the Chargers.

Not tasked with too much

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-03

Herbert completed 22 of his 37 attempts for 212 yards in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Patriots.

The score tells the whole story in this one. Facing an opposing offense incapable of getting past the 50-yard line and miserable weather conditions all afternoon, Herbert and the Chargers offense were content just avoiding any mistakes. The result is a second consecutive week with a yards-per-attempt figure below six, and Sunday marked just the second time all season the Pro Bowl quarterback failed to toss a touchdown. It might not get much better in Week 14 when the improving Broncos defense travels to Los Angeles.
