Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee left Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints with a chest injury, which turned out to be much more severe than initially thought. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Higbee's chest injury turned out to be an injury to his lung that caused him to cough up blood. Despite the gruesome status of his internal organ, Higbee isn't expected to miss much time.

Higbee was admitted to the hospital as a precaution. Higbee left the game in the second quarter, but never went into the locker room, the story added. With Higbee out, Everett should benefit from more time and possibly more targets.
