Tyrod Taylor has declined to file a grievance against the Los Angeles Chargers and the team doctor who administered a pain-killing shot that led to a puncture in the quarterback's lung, sources told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Taylor reportedly had 60 days to inform the Chargers of his decision regarding the incident that occurred prior to Los Angeles' Week 2 game on Sept. 20.

Rapoport added that the National Football League Players Association is still reviewing the matter to prevent a similar situation in the future.

Taylor, 31, was cleared to return a week after the incident and has acted as the backup to rookie Justin Herbert since.

While the Chargers initially said Taylor would regain the starter's role, Herbert - the No. 6 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft - has maintained his hold on the position with a series of outstanding performances.

The 22-year-old is among the favorites to win Offensive Rookie of the Year after throwing for 3,015 yards and 23 touchdowns against nine interceptions in 10 starts.

Taylor will be an unrestricted free agent after this season.
