Chargers May Have Lost Another Player to Injury With Rookie Forrest Lamp Carted Off Field

It looks like the Chargers injury curse didn’t end with the team’s move to LA

The Chargers may have lost another player to an injury Wednesday, reported NBC Sports.

Rookie guard Forrest Lamp was carted off the field after an apparent right leg injury, according to the Los Angeles Times.

It's a serious blow to the team, as the Chargers are already without their first-rounder Mike Williams. 

Lamp was brought in as an immediate starter for the Chargers, according to NBC Sports. The team was hoping to upgrade their offensive line this offseason.

They haven't given up on Williams yet, although the team acknowledged he could miss the entire season due to back problems.

Lamp, out of Western Kentucky, was the second player selected by the Chargers in the recent NFL Draft. The Chargers have high hopes for him as an eventual starting guard on the offensive line, one of the team’s most critical needed areas.

He had been working with their 1st Unit during a training camp that only started last Sunday.

There is a report, that after being carted off the practice field he was seen walking off from the cart, but there is still no official word from the Chargers as to the severity of his injury.

It looks like the Chargers injury curse didn’t end with the team’s move to LA. Especially if both of the team’s first couple draft picks this year don’t make it to the Official Season, which begins in Denver vs. the Broncos on Sept. 11.
