Doctors have advised Tyrod Taylor not to play "indefinitely” due to his punctured lung. The Chargers were hoping Taylor would be able to start Sunday, but doctors are against it.

Taylor was held out of a Week 2 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday after experiencing chest pains during warmups.
