UPDATE: Chargers WR Eddie Royal hospitalized

Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal @EddieRoyalWR left Saturday's practice in an ambulance and is currently hospitalized after taking a hard fall that resulted in some trouble breathing. According to reports, Royal went up for a pass and came down on his back. One Chargers player reportedly said he saw Royal coughing up blood. Royal then complained about shortness of breath, and an ambulance was called to take him to the hospital for observation. Head coach Mike McCoy called the trip to the hospital "precautionary."

Update: Royal has been diagnosed with a bruised lung. All other tests came up negative, according to Adam Caplan.

Fantasy Analysis:

We hope to know more about Royal's condition later today. The Chargers have had awful luck with their wide receivers in camp, and the injuries to Danario Alexander @D_Alexander84 and Malcom Floyd have created an opportunity for Royal to see more playing time. I just hope he's OK.
