Chargers Receiver Eddie Royal Suffers Bruised Lung, Concussion

Updating an earlier item, Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal was diagnosed with a bruised lung and a concussion.

Royal was participating in an 11-on-11 drill at Saturday’s practice when he hit the ground hard while making a catch. Royal was shaken up on the play and started heading to the locker room when he collapsed because he had trouble breathing.

Royal was later diagnosed with a bruised lung and a concussion and there is no known timetable for his return.

Trainers went to work on him and gave him oxygen until paramedics could arrive and treat him at the scene.

Shortly afterward, Royal was strapped onto a gurney and whisked away to the hospital by an ambulance.
