How Does A Punctured Lung Not Kill You?

If you haven’t heard today, the LA Chargers reported that QB Tyrod Taylor sat out of Sunday’s game against the Chiefs because of a punctured lung.  A punctured lung that was given to him by the Chargers own team doctor… yup, you heard that right.  The Chargers own team doctor accidently punctured Taylor’s lung before the game on Sunday.  Now on Sunday, the Chargers surprised everyone and started rookie QB Justin Hebert.  Who had a great start, but it surprised everyone.

But today, we find out that team doctor was going to give Taylor a pain reliever shot but accidently stuck that fucker a little too far and gave Taylor a punctured lung.  The doctor must have been watching too much Pulp Fiction and wanted to re-enact the infamous OD scene with Tyrod.

But this brings me to my next point.  How do you not die from getting your lung punctured?  I don’t know a lot about the body but I know the lung pretty much makes sure you breathe and if you fucking puncture it then wouldn’t you not be able to breathe?  I could be talking out of my ass, but how do you not die or even get rushed to the hospital?  Also how stupid is this team doctor?  Like, if this doctor could so easily stab Taylor’s lung why doesn’t this thing come up more? or is this doctor just as shitty as the team?

I know I’m asking a lot of questions but I couldn’t wrap my head around it today.  I had to read Schefter’s tweet and read the ESPN article a few times before I could process it.  But it’s great news that Tyrod is doing ok and recovering.
