Uncertainty about Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert‘s status for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars has affected the betting line for the game and it may be a while before there’s any official word about whether he will play.

Herbert has been listed as questionable by the Chargers. He suffered fractured rib cartilage in last Thursday’s loss to the Chiefs and has been limited in practice this week, but told reporters on Friday that he feels good.

Chase Daniel has worked with the starters during team drills and would get the start if Herbert is ruled out.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring), tight end Donald Parham (hamstring), and tackle Trey Pipkins (foot) are also in the questionable category.

Cornerback JC Jackson (ankle) played last Thursday after missing the opener, but he’s been out of practice this week and is listed as doubtful to play on Sunday. Center Corey Linsley (knee) is also unlikely to play.

  1. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the Jags have a chance to win this one.

  2. coach put him back after he was hurt. he took another bad sack afterwards. this is the coaches fault… not the player.
    you’re not going to win without Herbert. if you hurt him long term, you do the same to your organization

  3. Not a divisional game and unlikely to end up in a tiebreaking scenario with Jacksonville. It’s worth sitting him. Only question now is how long it will take for him to really heal.

    Herbert is the next decade of this franchise. Better to have to scuffle for a playoff spot later in the season, or even miss them altogether this year, than ruin him in early-season games.
