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. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to Field Yates, head coach Anthony Lynn said Herbert will get the start against the Panthers this Sunday.

It looks like Herbert is about to have a baptism by fire in the NFL, and I’m here for it. He was supposed to take his time and develop from the bench.

However, injuries have a way of changing everything in the NFL. Taylor is out and Herbert is in. Judging from how he played against the Chiefs, expectations will be high against the Panthers.

I’m honestly super excited to see what Herbert does now that he has an entire week to prepare as the starting quarterback.

He has a huge arm and is way more athletic than most people might think. He needs to improve his decision making, but all the raw skills are there.

Now, he’ll have a full week to prepare for the Panthers.

It’s going to be a lot of fun to see how the former Oregon star does. Can’t wait!
