Herbert went down hard near the end of their loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night, and was in visible pain as he fought to finish out the 27-24 loss.  Staley

said Thursday night that Herbert was "OK," and that he would undergo testing on Friday — which is what determined the fracture.  It's unclear if Herbert will end up missing

any time. The Chargers will host the Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday afternoon.
