    Can you answer these real Jeopardy! clues about celebrities? Breonna Taylor: Outrage over lack of charges turns into protests across the US Tyrod Taylor should be furious with how the Chargers caused and handled his injury This is the online version of our daily newsletter, The Morning Win. Subscribe to get irreverent and incisive sports stories, delivered to your mailbox every morning. © Provided by For The Win Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn made a stunning admission on Wednesday when he told ESPN that starting QB Tyrod Taylor missed last Sunday’s game because the team doctor accidentally punctured Taylor’s lung while administering what was supposed to be a pain-killing injection into his ribs. While that happening is absolutely incredible (not in a good way), the way the Chargers have handled it has been even worse. Lynn told ESPN that the doctor “just made a mistake” and that “it happens.” He also added that Taylor wasn’t upset. Now, mistakes in life and and in football are going to happen and I’m sure Lynn is trying to just move this story...
    Justin Herbert will continue to start at quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers. Herbert started last week against the Chiefs when Tyrod Taylor’s lung was punctured, and he’s keeping his spot in the lineup for the time being.

    Tyrod Taylor. Bobby Ellis/Getty Images Los Angeles Chargers starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor was mysteriously pulled from action just before kickoff on Sunday, setting the stage for rookie Justin Herbert's first career start. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Taylor was pulled after suffering a punctured lung at the hands of team doctors who were administering a pain-killing injection to treat his cracked ribs. Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn says that Taylor will remain the starter when he is able to return, but that could take several weeks. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Los Angeles Chargers starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor had his lung accidentally punctured by team doctors just before kickoff of Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, resulting in a trip to the hospital, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter.  According to Schefter, team doctors were administering a pain-killing injection for Taylor to treat his cracked ribs when things went awry. The result was Taylor's sudden disappearance from the sidelines and the first career start of rookie quarterback Justin Herbert. After the game, which...

Week 2 in the NFL was wild, and it’s only going to be more difficult to predict moving forward with the bevy of injuries that’s hit the league. © Photo by Sarah Stier/Getty Images Let’s see how everyone picked this week. Injuries are really going to show themselves in that Niners vs. Giants game. Both teams are more or less decimated, so it’s kind of appropriate that they’re facing off. The 49ers have no Nick Bosa, the Giants are without Saquon Barkley. It’s going to make that whole game a real mess. Meanwhile the Chargers are almost close to an unanimous lock this week against the Panthers, who are really going to need to adapt their offense after Christian McCaffery suffered a high ankle sprain and will be out a few weeks.

But there were also moments where Herbert seemed to overthink throws, particularly when he needed to layer the football over the middle of the field against zone coverage schemes. He just needs to trust himself,...

    Tyrod Taylor will continue to be the starting quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers once he’s healthy. Taylor didn’t play Sunday after experiencing chest pains shortly before kickoff. That meant rookie QB Justin Herbert had to play.

    Woman suspected of sending poisoned letter to Trump arrested The most historic restaurant in your state The Chargers lost to the Chiefs in OT after one of the most cowardly punts since 2009 While the Baltimore Ravens saw the value of going for it on fourth and one Sunday, the Los Angeles Chargers did the exact opposite, and that played a large role in their 23-20 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. With the game tied at 20 entering overtime, the Chargers received the kickoff and drove to their own 34, but then opted to punt on fourth and one.

    Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert got an unexpected start Sunday afternoon against the Chiefs after Tyrod Taylor was scratched from the lineup just before the contest started. Herbert, a rookie from Oregon, had been expected to sit behind Taylor for most of the year to develop his first-round arm for the future. Instead, he has been thrust into duty. Taylor reportedly is dealing with an injured chest.  UPDATE: Taylor has officially been ruled out for the entire game. MORE: 49ers’ defense rocked by injuries Herbert ran for a first-quarter touchdown against Kansas City, which came in as the heavy betting favorite regardless of the opposing quarterback. The Chiefs, of course, let Patrick Mahomes sit behind veteran Alex Smith for a year before unleashing him on the NFL. This is a developing story that will be updated.
    Joe Burrow did not get the desired collective result at the end of his NFL debut. However, he did manage to showcase his skills in the narrow 13-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday. Burrow completed 23 of his 36 attempted passes and threw for 193 yards against one interception. He almost carried the Bengals to a fourth-quarter comeback, but fell short in the dying stages of the game. The Iowa-born athlete seems focused on making a mark in the league this year.

    (CBSLA)- The Chargers got the victory in Week 1, albeit with a bit of luck, 16-13 over the Cincinnati Bengals as Cincy kicker Randy Bullock missed a 31-yard field goal wide right. Still, a win is a win, and the Chargers enter their Week 2 matchup with the division rival Kansas City Chiefs 1-0. The Chargers dropped both matchups against Kansas City last season though they were close, 24-17 in Week 11 and 31-21 in Week 17. The biggest problem in each of those games was turnovers. Philip Rivers threw four picks in the first matchup and another two in the final game of the year. Rivers threw two picks late in the fourth quarter of the Week 11 contest that cost the team any chance of tying the game. And in Week 17, Rivers’ pick on 2nd and 3 from the Kansas City 28 cost a shot at a field goal that would have tied the game at 10 headed to halftime. Rivers is now in Indianapolis and Tyrod Taylor stepped into the starting QB role for Week 1....

    The Chargers and Bengals locked arms during the anthems at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati Sunday. Then the game started and they never did get untangled. It was a microcosm of all the Game Ones you’ve seen when two representatives of the NFL’s mediocre middle get together. Lots of punts, lots of bogged-down third downs, strange coaching and officiating decisions, and finally a wide-right field goal try by Bengals kicker Randy Bullock, who grabbed his leg almost immediately. At least the jilted Cincinnati fans didn’t have to sit in traffic. The difference was that the Chargers let someone else stub their toes, not that they were perfect or even prolific. But they made one or two fewer bad plays than the Bengals did, and who cared that they only scored one touchdown against last year’s 29th-ranked defense? The Chargers won, 16-13. Escape and dominance are both 1-0 in the standings. “It’s just so hard to win a game in this league,” linebacker Melvin Ingram said. Charger fans know that. Many of them must have...
    Joe Burrow’s debut with the Cincinnati Bengals was met with heartbreak at the end of the game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Burrow had thrown what he thought was a touchdown pass to A.J. Green to put Cincinnati ahead with 11 seconds remaining in the game. However, Green was called for offensive pass interference which set up a potential game-tying field goal from Reggie Bullock. BENGALS ROOKIE QB JOE BURROW SCORES FIRST NFL TOUCHDOWN VS. CHARGERS Bullock missed the 31-yard field-goal attempt wide right and came up limping afterward.

    On the floor, this doesn’t determine to be a “Sport of the Week’’ as a lot correctly termed “Sport of the Weak,’’ primarily based on the 2019 standings with the Bengals coming off a 2-14 season and the Chargers 5-11. This sport’s draw, nonetheless, is all in regards to the beginning quarterback for the Bengals — No. 1-overall draft choose Joe Burrow, who’ll begin his first sport as a professional after a dynamic school profession at LSU. As with each quarterback who’s picked No. 1 general, all of us marvel if Burrow is the NFL’s subsequent nice quarterback. In Might, Burrow had a precious dialog with former Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, additionally a No. 1-overall choose who went to a dropping franchise. Manning, a direct starter in Indianapolis as a rookie, survived early bumps and have become one of many best quarterbacks of all time and a sure Corridor of Fame entrant when he’s eligible. “I felt like we had been in very comparable conditions coming in, and he felt the identical,” Burrow informed reporters in July....
    On the surface, this doesn’t figure to be a “Game of the Week’’ as much as it should be termed “Game of the Weak,’’ based on the 2019 standings with the Bengals coming off a 2-14 season and the Chargers 5-11. This game’s draw, however, is all about the starting quarterback for the Bengals — No. 1-overall draft pick Joe Burrow, who’ll start his first game as a pro after a dynamic college career at LSU. As with every quarterback who’s picked No. 1 overall, we all wonder if Burrow is the NFL’s next great quarterback. In May, Burrow had a valuable conversation with former Colts and Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, also a No. 1-overall pick who went to a losing franchise. Manning, an immediate starter in Indianapolis as a rookie, survived early bumps and became one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and a certain Hall of Fame entrant when he’s eligible. “I felt like we were in very similar situations coming in, and he felt the same,” Burrow told reporters in July. “He just gave me a...
    Tom Brady had numerous rumored suitors in free agency, and according to Dan Patrick he strongly considered the Chicago Bears. During his first and almost surely only foray into free agency, Tom Brady seemed open to a lot o options. A certain points the Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans were prominent rumored suitors, with a path to some other teams if they wanted to sign him. He of course ultimately chose the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Chicago Bears are perpetually in need of a quarterback. In a certain light, they could have been regarded as a landing spot for Brady. But after years of December games in Foxboro, warmer climates seemed to be an easy priority for him. It’s already known the Buccaneers and Chargers were the finalists to sign Brady. But the identity of any other finalists, if there were any, has not been known and it’s moot now. But on his show Thursday, Dan Patrick reported the Bears were the third of three finalists.

    The Los Angeles Chargers parted ways with longtime quarterback Philip Rivers in the offseason and decided to go down the path of selecting a potential young, franchise quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft. With the sixth pick in the draft, the Chargers took former Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert. The team currently has Herbert listed No. 2 on their depth chart, and it seems like their immediate plan is to groom him behind veteran Tyrod Taylor, who will head into the season as the team's starter. Whoever is under center for the Chargers will have a ton of talent to work with. Austin Ekeler returns as the team's leading running back, and they will look to include backups Justin Jackson and rookie Joshua Kelley into their weekly game plans as well. Wide receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, as well as tight end Hunter Henry, will serve as the Chargers' go-to options. Allen, one of the best wideouts in the NFL, hauled in 104 receptions for 1,199 receiving yards and six scores last season with Rivers. It will be interesting to see...

    If you were designing a quarterback in a lab, you might create Justin Herbert. He’s 6-6 with a cannon for an arm; he can run; he can make any throw on the field. That’s why he went sixth overall in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Chargers. Philip Rivers is out of town, and Herbert is the quarterback of the future. The question fantasy football owners want to know in regards to Herbert and Tyrod Taylor, though, is this: Who’s the quarterback of the present in L.A.? Likely, Taylor will get the early-season starts while Herbert, regarded as a more raw QB prospect than Joe Burrow or Tua Tagovailoa, adjusts to the NFL game. That doesn’t mean the Chargers won’t insert Herbert if Taylor struggles or gets injured, though, and if that happens, Herbert would be worth a look in fantasy.

    Lucid Motors announced that its forthcoming all-electric sedan, the Lucid Air, will be the “fastest charging electric vehicle ever offered.” The company claims the Air will have the capability to charge at rates of up to 20 miles per minute — which translates to 300 miles in about 20 minutes. This charging time is possible by using a 900-volt charger with a peak charging rate of over 300 kW. By comparison, Tesla’s V3 Supercharger can pump out 250 kW, which comes out to around 15 miles per minute of charge. Lucid is teaming up with Electrify America Lucid is teaming up with Electrify America, a subsidiary of Volkswagen, to build a network of fast chargers like this. These chargers, which will use Combined Charging System standard chargers, will be rolled out to some of Electrify America’s 2,000 public charging stations, though the exact number and timeline are still unknown.

The dynamics of training camp are different in the NFL this year, as and as such any player’s decision to hold out is different too. According to Daniel Popper of The Athletic, Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram is sitting out of practice because he’s dissatisfied with his current contract. Ingram is entering the final year of his contract, and he carries a team-high $16.625 million cap hit. But none of his $14 million base salary for this year is guaranteed, and any  COVID-19 -related shutdown would push unearned money into a future contract. Ingram reported training camp and is attending meetings and walkthroughs. So he can’t be fined, unless the Chargers wants to push that envelope toward conduct detrimental to the team. Ingram has seen teammate Joe Bosa get a historic five-year, $135 million contract this offseason. The new money average in Bosa’s deal, $27 million, is nearly...

    The new charging stations will be installed in cities and suburbs, and you’ll be able to use them starting early next year. You’ll find them near the likes of grocery stores, retail outlets and entertainment complexes, with the idea that you can charge your EV while you run errands or have fun. Most stations will be able to charge four vehicles at once, and they’ll have 100-350-kilowatt charging capabilities which, according to GM, will “meet the needs of an increasingly powerful set of EVs coming to market.” GM is hoping this approach of installing stations in easily accessible locations will make EVs a more viable option for people who don’t otherwise have easy access to charging stations. Those include folks who can’t install chargers in their rented homes or who don’t have stations close to their workplace. “We are moving quickly to bring new EVs to market that customers will love,” GM chairman and CEO Mary Barra said. “We know how important the charging ecosystem is for drivers, one that includes access to convenient and reliable public fast charging.

    Filling a gas tank is faster than charging a battery, but this simple comparison misses an important point: Charging an electric vehicle at home is extremely convenient. You can’t install a gas pump inside your garage. An EV can leave the driveway every morning with a fully loaded battery, and charging at public charging stations only becomes necessary when travelling longer distances. About eighty percent of charging is done at home, and most EVs tank up while their owners are sleeping. All EVs have a built in device called an “onboard charger” that regulates the flow of electricity into the battery. The speed that an EV can accept electricity is called the “acceptance rate”. Decent onboard chargers have acceptance rates above 7 kilowatts. Tesla’s vehicles have excellent acceptance rates in the high teens. Most onboard chargers can accept electrons as fast as a home charger can dish them out. Rapid acceptance is more important when charging at high voltage public superchargers. Level One home charging stations run on 120 volts. Level Twos need 240. All EVs come with a Level...
    Keeping your tech collection juiced up when you’re on the go is tough. For one, you have to have a fully-fueled portable battery within arm’s reach at all times. For another, it’s vital that you have a charging cable that won’t act up when you’re down to 5% and you need to call an Uber, stat. Reliable portable chargers are a dime a dozen on the market, but trying to cop a charging cable that can last you years is like, for the lack of a better idiom, finding a needle in a haystack. To save you the trouble of finding one, meet the Evercable, a.k.a. the world’s strongest phone cable. Forget the chargers you keep buying from the gas station that only last two months tops. The Evercable is engineered with stainless steel and has been tested and bent more than 60,000 times, ensuring that it’ll deliver lasting durability. Compared to other leading brands, it also provides higher charging and data read speed, as well as a longer length — 4.3 feet to be exact — for more flexible charging.  Without...
    Over the weekend, lots of sites reported that Apple analyst Ming-chi Kuo is claiming that the iPhones due to be released later this year won’t have chargers or EarPods in the box. If you want to know what most tech bloggers thought of the rumor, you can head over here to see all the tweets, almost all of which amount to “that sounds like a bad, user-hostile thing to do.” I say good: drop the in-box charger (but I have a couple requests). The clearest piece I’ve seen about pulling the charger out of the box comes from venture capitalist MG Siegler. He points out that there are four reasons that Apple might have for doing this: increased margins, shipping costs, the transition to a future no-port iPhone, and the environment. That list, for Siegler, is in order of importance for Apple. Maybe! It very well might be the case that Apple is making this move for purely selfish reasons, charging the same amount of money and giving a customer less. It also means people who don’t already have a...
    Let me elaborate.  I was previously relying on a no-name 2-in-1 wireless charger from Amazon that powered both my iPhone XS and my Apple Watch Series 5. It did the job competently, but only barely. For one thing, it doesn’t support fast-charging on the iPhone. I had to lay the phone flat, so I couldn’t easily glance at the screen to unlock it and glimpse my notifications. And the Apple Watch charger was really just a stand with a hole for the charging puck that came with your wristwear. I still wound up with a rat’s nest of cables. As convenient as the setup was, it just didn’t really sell the appeal of wireless power. Logitech’s dock fixes all of those problems, and then some. Fast wireless charging is clearly helpful (yes, even with stay-at-home pandemic orders), but the real allure for me is a design that’s thoroughly well-considered. Jon Fingas/News Brig The vertical phone stand is helpful for checking my notifications at a glance, of course, but design touches like the rubbery finish and recessed floor make it easy...
    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse Cam Newton to the New England Patriots makes these three teams look bad. Maybe the New England Patriots dynasty continues with Cam Newton at quarterback? When nobody expected it, ESPN’s Adam Schefter dropped a complete bombshell on us Sunday evening. The former No. 1 overall pick of the Carolina Panthers would be joining the Evil Empire on his new football chapter. In nine years in Charlotte, Newton was a three-time Pro Bowler and won NFL MVP during an incredible 2015 season that culminated in a Super Bowl appearance. But ever since the Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Newton wasn’t the same player. Though the Panthers were still a good team for a bit, Newton’s health declined in the last two seasons, as he played in only two games for Carolina in 2019. Longtime Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was fired mid-season and Carolina went in a new direction. Admittedly, the Panthers did Newton dirty this offseason by not letting him enter free...

    (CBSLA)- The NFL is continuing to plan as if the season will be played as scheduled this year with the league hoping to open training camps in late July to allow teams to ramp back up for the season. While the league continues to work on protocols to keep players and staff safe, there is still concern about potentially catching the coronavirus. New Los Angeles Chargers corner Chris Harris Jr. articulated that concern well on Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports with Mike Florio. Harris says he’s not so much concerned with getting the virus himself as he is concerned about potentially passing it on to his family. “With me, I know I can beat it. I know that I can try to fight through it the best that I can. But, it’s just worrying about my four little girls and my wife and my family,” said Harris Jr. “That’s where I have a big issue is not putting them in danger. I don’t want to be the cause of them getting sick or anything from that. That’s where the...

    Getty Colin Kaepernick It’s been four seasons since Colin Kaepernick suited up in the NFL, though there’s been chatter about the 32-year-old getting another chance in the league. Chargers’ coach Anthony Lynn recently said that Kaepernick “fits the style of quarterback” his team wants, as Pro Football Action relays. “He fits the style of quarterback that we want. We’re happy with the three quarterbacks that we want but you can’t have enough on the runway,” Lynn said while adding that he hasn’t spoken to Kaepernick. Tyrod Taylor is set to start the year for the Bolts, though he is not seen as the QB of the future. The franchise added Justin Herbert with the No. 6 overall pick back in April and they hope that he’ll man the position for years to come. The team also has Easton Stick on the roster. Stick, who was a fifth-rounder in 2019, is a mobile QB who won three championships at North Dakota St. Many teams like to have some overlapping characteristics in their quarterbacks. That’s not necessarily in terms of level of...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Max Tuerk, an All-America offensive lineman at Southern California who was drafted by the Chargers, has died. He was 26. USC announced his death Sunday on Twitter, but not say when Tuerk died or provide a cause of death. Tuerk played for the Trojans from 2012-15. He was a freshman All-American and an All-Pac-12 first-team selection in 2014. As a three-year starter, he played under three head coaches — Lane Kiffin, Steve Sarkisian and Clay Helton. “Heartbroken by the loss of Max Tuerk,” Helton tweeted. “Incredible person, teammate, and Trojan. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.” The Chargers selected Tuerk in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft, but a knee injury during his senior year affected his progress. Despite making the Chargers’ roster, he was inactive all season. Before his second season, Tuerk was suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances. He said he tested positive after taking over-the-counter supplements. After being released by the Chargers, he was signed by the Arizona Cardinals in 2017 and...
