And the injuries keep on coming. what the heck is going on?!? what kind of curse did Dr Chao put on us?

This one comes in practice and looks to be pretty serious. Serious enough to have the ambulance come out to pick up Eddie Royal from the field.

Royal went down hard in practice and the trainers rushed over to help him out. He was given oxygen and attempted to go back to the locker room, but stopped midway there and the athletic personnel had to give him attention. He was taken away in an ambulance and is headed to the hospital.

Coach McCoy said that he landed on his back and had shortness of breath. I’m not a doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn, he could have a bruised lung. Browns rookie LB Barkevious Mingo just suffered a bruised lung during the week and had to go to the hospital as well.

Coach Mike McCoy on Eddie Royal: “For precautionary reasons, we took him to the hospital to make sure he’s OK.”

Either way, prayers go out to Eddie and the fam.

Another Chargers WR Eddie Royal is down. This time prompting an Ambulance. #NFL #Chargers
