Chargers' Lynn stands behind Taylor despite Herbert's debut

Anthony Lynn did a good job throughout the offseason and training camp of installing Tyrod Taylor as the Los Angeles Chargers' starting quarterback - even after Justin Herbert was taken with the sixth overall pick in April's draft.

But after Herbert came on as a last-minute starter and threw for 311 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime loss to Kansas City, Lynn has the makings of a quarterback controversy on his hands.

The coach is trying to squelch any sense of a competition by saying: "Tyrod Taylor 100% is our quarterback." Lynn said Taylor was in the team's building Monday, but didn't have any update on his status for the upcoming week.
