Year joined Bills: 2021
Acquired: Free Agency via Chargers

College Injuries:

Played in 42 consecutive games at left tackle before suffering a right ankle injury against Miami (OH) early in the 3rd quarter. By video, it appears as though he suffered a high ankle sprain for which he missed 2 games. Several reports indicated it was a knee sprain, but the official team page states an ankle injury and is more consistent with film than news reports. 

Lamp then suffered a high ankle sprain early in the week at the Senior Bowl and could not participate. He later reported that he was fully healthy and that he had no issues whatsoever. The side was not specified but it would not be surprising if he had re-injured his right ankle.

Pro Injuries:

2017 Chargers

Suffered a right ACL tear in early August shortly after training camp started. He missed the entire season rehabbing the injury. He appeared on track 6 months out from surgery in 2018 and was reportedly running prior to OTA’s. 

However, he required what was termed a “minor procedure” in April of that year that forced him to miss the entirety of the offseason. However, this procedure caused him to keep weight off his right leg for 10 weeks, significantly hampering his abilities to be fully healthy for training camp. 

2018 Chargers

He ultimately played in 2 games after being activated off of the PUP list but was a healthy scratch for a majority of the season, appearing in only Week 6 and 17 for a total of 17 snaps. During the season, there were no other publicly reported injuries.

2019 Chargers

Lamp finally appeared healthy, appearing in 7 games before going down with a right fibular fracture against the Titans in Week 7. The injury sent him to injured reserve for the remainder of the season, forcing him to miss 9 games total.

2020 Chargers

Appeared and started in 16 games, with no publicly reported injuries.

My name is Dr. Kyle Trimble and I am, first and foremost, a Buffalo Bills fan!! When I am not cheering on the Buffalo Bills, I am a Physical Therapist. To give a background on myself; I was born and raised in Erie, PA, moved to Buffalo in 2006 to begin my studies at D'Youville College towards becoming a Physical Therapist at which time I became a devoted Buffalo Bills fan.  I graduated in 2013 with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy and moved home for several years. Moving back to the Buffalo area in 2016, I have gained extensive experience in outpatient orthopedics, skilled nursing, acute care hospital, and home care. Having obtained a significant wealth of knowledge that continues to grow, along with a undying fandom of the Bills, puts me in the unique position to educate my fellow fans about our great team. 
I am currently an injury spotter working with Dr. David Chao, Orthopedic Surgeon @ProFootballDoc based out of San Diego. In this role, I provide real time updates regarding injuries during the game. I hope you enjoy what I publish and I welcome any comments or questions you may have.
