Justin Herbert led the Los Angeles Chargers in rushing yards (66) in Sunday’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The rookie had a 31-yard run that was the longest by any Chargers quarterback since 1988. He even lowered his shoulder to run over a defensive back in Week 7. Anthony Lynn appreciates Herbert’s skill set, but doesn’t want him running the ball too much.
“He put his shoulders down and he ran over someone,” Lynn said. “The sideline kind of erupted when he did that. That’s the way he leads sometimes. But in this league, I want you to slide. … I don’t want to put Justin in a situation where he may have to run the football too many times. I don’t like my quarterback getting hit.”
