Los Angeles Chargers tight end Donald Parham Jr. was carted off the field on a stretcher Thursday after tumbling on his head trying to make a touchdown catch at the 13:27 mark of the first quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs.
No immediate report was available on Parham, who was not able to hold on to a 5-yard pass on a fourth-and-goal situation.
About 15 Chargers players watched on the field as the Chargers medical staff assessed Parham.
Parham is in his second season in the NFL. He entered Thursday with 20 receptions for 190 yards and three touchdowns over the Chargers’ first 13 games.
Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams also was injured on the opening drive, which Los Angeles began from its 24-yard line following a long return on the opening kickoff. Williams was able to return on the next Chargers possession.
