Los Angeles lost to Kansas City on the road 27-24 in a key AFC West battle on the inaugural Amazon Prime’s Thursday Night Football. Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert had a great performance, but the offensive line struggled without Linsley.
The offensive line allowed 8 quarterback hits, 2 sacks, and 4 tackles for loss in the loss. Linsley was named to his first Pro Bowl this past season as he was also named as a second-team All-Pro. He was a first-team All-Pro selection in the 2020 NFL season.
The Los Angeles Chargers selected Linsley in the fifth round (161st overall pick) in the 2014 NFL Draft.
