Sources: Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor expected to miss Week 4 game

The Los Angeles Chargers already have ruled out quarterback Tyrod Taylor for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, but he also is expected to miss next Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, sources tell ESPN.

Taylor suffered cracked ribs in Los Angeles' regular-season opener and then had a lung accidentally punctured by an injection before last week's game when a team doctor tried to numb up the initial injury.

Doctors told Taylor this past week that he is forbidden from doing any strenuous activity for two weeks, which would knock him out of the Buccaneers game.
