Default Eddie Royal leaves Chargers practice in ambulance

Wonder if he might have sustained a collapsed lung by hitting his chest on his way down. Or a ruptured spleen that could have caused loss of blood with accompanying oxygen desaturation. Cardiac contusion (bruise)could cause similar symptoms. If he has suffered any of these, he would not be available for our season opener.

The San Diego Chargers -- more than any team in the AFC West -- can't afford another injury at wide receiver.

Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego reported that pass-catcher Eddie Royal left Saturday's practice in an ambulance after falling hard to the ground while attempting a catch during an 11-on-11 drill.

Royal initially got to his feet and made his way to the trainer's room before stopping and going to the ground. Trainers treated Royal with an oxygen tank as coach Mike McCoy, general manager Tom Telesco and teammates gathered around. After an ambulance and two fire trucks arrived, Royal was loaded onto a gurney and was carted away before practice resumed.

McCoy told reporters that Royal was having trouble breathing and will be hospitalized for examination.

Default Re: Eddie Royal leaves Chargers practice in ambulance

As of now they are reporting a contused (bruised) lung with possible concussion. A lung contusion usually is accompanied by some coughing up of blood, and creates swelling, collapse and stiffness of the lung tissue so that breathing is belabored with poor oxygenation of the blood. The problem with this type of injury is that it commonly "extends" (worsens in terms of lung tissue swelling, collapse and stiffness and oxygenation) over the 48-72 hour period following the trauma. It must be carefully followed in a hospital setting for this period since it can easily result in need for placing the patient on a respirator while the lung heals. When dealing with chest trauma in general, this injury alone can determine whether a patient recovers or dies......the more severe, the greater the potential for mortality despite proper treatment (~10% for moderate contusion to as high as 40-50% for severe contusion). We should have a more accurate feel for his extent of injury in the next 48 hours or so. Prayers to the young man.

Football became a secondary concern for the Chargers on Saturday when an ambulance shuttled Eddie Royal off the practice field to a nearby hospital.

Their primary focus was Royal's health.

On Sunday, Royal signaled it appropriate to begin thinking football.

The Chargers wide receiver was released from the hospital, a source said, and expressed optimism on Twitter, reporting improvement after suffering a bruised lung and concussion in training camp. Royal experienced shortness of breath and was seen coughing up blood after he jumped and caught a Philip Rivers pass and landed hard on his back, the sudden stop slamming his helmet against the ground.
