San Diego Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal sustained a bruised lung during Saturday morning's practice, the team said in a statement.

Royal was taken off the field to a hospital in an ambulance after landing on his back while making a catch in practice.

The Chargers said Royal is also being "evaluated for a concussion." All other initial tests have been negative.

Fantasy Impact: 

We hope Royal is stable and makes a full recovery. The injury is another blow to an already banged up Charger receiving corps. Malcom Floyd returned for a limited practice, which is some much-needed good news for this team.
