Chargers’ Donald Parham in stable condition after suffering a head injury vs. Chiefs:
But it appeared that Parham hit his head on the ground while going down to make the catch Justin Herbert’s pass in the end zone on a fourth-and-goal play and was unable to hold onto the ball.
Later in the game, the Chargers announced that Parham is in stable condition while undergoing tests, imaging and evaluation for a head injury at UCLA Harbor Medical Center.
The Chargers’ unfortunate sequence of events followed a 75-yard return by Andre Roberts on the game’s opening kickoff.
After two Austin Ekeler runs gained 19 yards, Herbert misfired on a throw to Williams in the end zone.
Williams was shaken up on the next play when Herbert went back to him with a short pass at the goal line.
