Thursday night's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers was in the fourth quarter. Former Oregon great Justin Herbert was struck in the stomach, sending him to the ground in discomfort.
The focus will be on Russell Wilson when he returns to face his former team as a starting quarterback for the first time.
Herbert rejoined the game, but it was obvious that he was in pain.
The Chargers head coach has stated that Herbert will be fine moving forward after receiving x-rays after the game.
Although the x-ray results were not made public, Brandon Staley said he is not worried about the future.
Herbert nevertheless led a comeback effort that lit up social media.
Herbert had to toss the ball away on the game's last drive because he was in too much pain to take a wide-open rushing lane for a first down.
However, he hit DeAndre Carter with a strike on the very next play to put LA in scoring position.
The Chiefs botched the recovery, which allowed the Chargers to score and nearly convert an onside kick. KC managed to get the ball and run out the clock by kneeling.
