Default Eddie Royal Carted out of Chargers Park by Ambulance

Ex Bronco, a bit of a foul mouth, but still. I'm only seeing bits on Twitter thus far.

Emergency response included 1 ambulance and 2 fire trucks.

Shortness of breath. That's not good.

I couldn't imagine going to a hospital just because your wind was knocked out of you.

Broken rib puncturing a lung is what immediately comes to mind. Hope the guy is okay.

I really hope Eddie is ok. He's one of the good guys.

That said, wtf are two fire trucks doing responding to an injured football player? Total waste of public funds.

Fire trucks routinely respond to medical calls. This isn't new. They often get there before the ambulance and so help assess and stabilize a person. They do it here in Denver all the time.

Coughing blood? Yeah sounds like perhaps a punctured lung and the shortness of breath due to bleeding and/or a pneumothorax.

Eddie Royal caught a pass, landed hard on his back and left Chargers Park in an ambulance on Saturday after experiencing shortness of breath.

Trainers were walking with Royal toward the team's locker room and training room when Royal stopped and went to the ground.

Trainers then worked on Royal as Mike McCoy, Tom Telesco and Philip Rivers came over to check on him.

Several minutes later, an ambulance came on to the field. Royal was placed on a board and into the ambulance, partially upright.

McCoy said Royal had a hard time breathing, and will be evaluated further at a hospital.

On his final play of practice Saturday, Royal jumped high and snagged a Philip Rivers pass -- then came down hard.

Royal made the catch in front of safety Eric Weddle.

"Phenomenal catch," Weddle said. "He was about 10 feet in the air. He just fell straight down on his back.

"Hopefully, he'll be OK. He's tough."

Said Rivers: "When a guy gets carried off in an ambulance, you just want him to be healthy, be OK, all football aside. And hopefully that's the report we'll get back soon on Eddie."

Royal had been having a strong camp, making all the practices and appearing in both exhibition games.

For the team's receiving corps, it was another blow. Earlier this month, Danario Alexander suffered a season-ending knee injury, and Malcom Floyd went down with a strained knee. Royal has been working with the first team.

Hope it's not a diaphragmatic rupture of some kind.

As much as I like Eddie this is 100% correct. He should have went to Washington.

Ouch! I broke a couple ribs in HS football. I was spitting up blood but they said I didn't rupture anything but who the hell knows. Absolutely nothing you can do but ace wrap it as tight as you can stand. Of course you feel it with every breath.

What is up with the the 2 bruised lungs in 2 days?

1st Mingo now Royal.

The next NFL Lawsuit?

Wishing a speedy recovery to Eddie, still have fond memories of his one great game vs the raiders on the 1st Monday night of the year. He has had a very "Q" type career.

Eddie - I'm happy I got to cheer for you for a few years, but your little ass needs to probably retire.

He had multiple concussions while playing for the Broncos.

I would guess a coincidence. Probably taking a hit in a certain way.

Yeah I didn't like what he said and I let him know on Twitter. Sounds like he'll be fine, though.
