Los Angeles Chargers second-round draft pcik, offensive guard Forrest Lamp, had to be carted off the field after suffering a right knee injury during practice on Wednesday.

Lamp was pulling on a running play when he injured the knee. He was attended to by trainers and although he was carted off the field Lamp was seen limping without help to the team training facility at Jack Hammett Sports Complex, putting some pressure on his injured right leg.

Chargers’ head coach Anthony Lynn said that Lamp was being evaluated by doctors and information wasn’t available when he was questioned after practice.

“He was playing so well,” Lynn said (h/t ESPN). “He was really coming along at that right guard position. He was playing really well, so it will definitely hurt this team.”

The Chargers have already lost rookie wide receiver Mike Williams who has been shut down due to a lower back disc herniation.

Lamp was working with the starting team offensive line at right guard.

Steelers’ Antonio Brown Misses Practice, Agent Denies Trade Request

Published

on

Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Antonio Brown was a no-show for practice on Monday, fueling trade speculation after an interesting exchange on Twitter with a former team employee, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette and Gerry Dulac.

Brown responded to the former employee’s belief that Brown would not be an elite receiver without the help of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger but tweeting “Trade me let’s find out”.

While the absence raises eyebrows, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that Brown has not requested a trade.

Additionally, Brown’s agent Drew Rosenhaus released the following statement shutting down any rumors that Brown has requested a trade, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“The tweet [on Monday] was not in reference to anything other than Antonio responding to a person he knows. It was not directed towards a trade, or wanting to be trading. Any idea he was asking for a trade is not accurate, Antonio had a personal matter. I talked to the team about it. His issue was unrelated to the tweet or his relationship with the team. Third, AB has an incredible drive to win. He just wants to win. That’s all that that is, that’s not anything more than him encouraging his coaches and teammates to win. And that’s what his entire focus is on. Any notion, any speculation otherwise, can be put to bed. This is a non-story that has been blown out of proportion. We can end this right here and now.”
