The Los Angeles Chargers have found themselves in a somewhat messy situation thanks to the circumstances of Tyrod Taylor’s injury, but coach Anthony Lynn has no interest in piling on.

Taylor will miss the Chargers’ Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers after the team doctor accidentally punctured his lung. The incident has become a major story, but Lynn said he does not blame the doctor for what happened.

Lynn obviously doesn’t want to add fuel to the fire here. It’s a story that already makes the doctor look pretty bad, and throwing him under the bus publicly helps no one.

Taylor is essentially out indefinitely while the puncture heals. While he is, the NFLPA is starting to look into things, so the Chargers’ issues might not be behind them.
