Justin Herbert ruled out with finger injury

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert will not return today.

The Chargers downgraded him coming out of halftime.

Herbert injured a finger on his right hand with 3:11 left in the second quarter on a hit from Zach Allen on a fourth-down incompletion.

He originally was listed as questionable to return.

Herbert has played through a fractured finger on his non-throwing hand since Week 4.

He finished Sunday 9-of-17 for 96 yards and an interception that led to a one-play, 3-yard drive for the Broncos, and he took four sacks.

Easton Stick has replaced Herbert and has completed 2 of 4 passes for 14 yards. The Chargers trail 10-0.
