  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Won't return Week 17

    Bosa (foot) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos. Bosa was able to practice in a limited fashion throughout the week, but he's not ready to return to the field just yet. The 28-year-old edge rusher has missed Los Angeles' last five games with this foot issue, and with the Chargers out of playoff contention, the team could very well shut down Bosa for the remainder of the year.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Cleared to practice

    The Chargers designated Bosa (foot) for return from injured reserve Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. The transaction opens up a 21-day window in which Bosa can be evaluated in practice before the Chargers would have to add him to the 53-man roster or keep him on IR for the remainder of the season. Given that he hasn't played since Week 11 and won't be able to get more than two practices under his belt this week, Bosa may not be cleared to play ahead of this Saturday's game against the Bills. A return during Week 17 or 18 may be more realistic, but the 5-9 Chargers likely won't risk bringing the star edge rusher back in the midst of a non-contending season unless the team is confident he's 100 percent recovered from his right foot sprain. Bosa appeared in nine games and tallied 20 tackles, 6.5 sacks, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble prior to being placed on IR.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Officially goes to IR

    The Chargers placed Bosa (foot) on their injured reserve list Wednesday. As expected, Bosa will now have to sit out at least the next four weeks as he recovers from the foot injury he sustained in Week 11 at Green Bay. Rookie third-rounder Tuli Tuipulotu and Justin Hollins will probably see increased reps on the edge until Bosa is ready to play again.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: IR stint likely

    Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said Monday that Bosa has a foot sprain and is "likely" headed to injured reserve, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Per Popper, Staley acknowledged that it's "to be determined" whether Bosa will play again this season. With that in mind, the star pass rusher seems bound to miss some time, beginning with Sunday's game against the Ravens.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Exits with foot injury

    Bosa is questionable to return to Sunday's game after suffering a foot injury. Bosa was carted back to the locker room after limping to the sidelines in the first quarter of Sunday's contest, per Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times. Tuli Tuipulotu, a 2023 second-round pick, is expected to see more work on the Chargers' defensive line with Bosa back in the locker room.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Will play Monday

    Bosa (toe) will play Monday versus the Cowboys, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Bosa was questionable all week with a toe injury but is now officially good to go for Monday night's game. The 2016 first-round pick missed the team's Week 4 win against the Raiders but will now look to help slow down Dak Prescott and the rest of Dallas' offense.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Misses practice again Friday

    Bosa (toe) remained sidelined for Friday's practice. Bosa has battled hamstring and toe issues already this season and missed Week 4. He had the Week 5 bye to rest up, but Bosa may have to find his way into a limited practice Saturday in order to play Monday night against Dallas. Bosa has 3.0 sacks through three appearances this season.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Listed as questionable

    Bosa (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Raiders. Bosa was a nonparticipant at practice all week, so his status is murky heading into Sunday. He fought through the injury for last week's victory over the Vikings but only ended up playing 25 defensive snaps (32 percent). Even if he does get the green light, he could end up looking at another limited workload. More clarity on his status will presumably come Sunday morning.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Misses practice Wednesday

    Bosa (hamstring/toe) was unavailable for the Chargers' practice Wednesday. Bosa popped up on the injury report Wednesday with a couple of injuries and he will have two more practice sessions to return to the field prior to Week 4 versus the Raiders. Considering he has played in each of the last two contests with the hamstring injury, he seems likely to go again Sunday against Las Vegas.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: In line to play Sunday

    Bosa (hamstring), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, is on track to be active for the contest, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Bosa's status will be confirmed when the Chargers release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to the game's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. According to Pelissero, the Chargers plan to have Bosa increase his playing time from Week 2, when he was limited to just 18 snaps in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Titans while being eased back from the hamstring issue. The light playing time didn't hinder Bosa from a productivity standpoint, as he finished with four tackles, including two sacks, during his time on the field.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Considered questionable

    Bosa (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings. Bosa bounced back from a Thursday DNP by practicing in limited fashion Friday. His status Sunday will depend on how his hamstring is holding up closer to kickoff. Tuli Tuipulotu is the likely candidate to replace Bosa on the edge if he is ultimately unable to go.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: No practice Thursday

    Bosa (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday. It's a downgrade for Bosa after he was limited in Wednesday's session. He didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday last week but still played in the Week 2 loss to the Titans, recording a pair of sacks. Bosa is someone who doesn't need many practice reps in order to play Sunday.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Limited in practice

    Bosa (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. Bosa played through the hamstring injury last week and managed to record two sacks despite playing on a snap count. While the 2016 first-round pick seems to be trending towards playing Sunday, it remains to be seen if he'll be a full go or if he'll be limited once again.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Questionable with hamstring injury

    Bosa (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. Bosa upgraded to limited participation Friday after failing to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but his status for Week 2 remains in doubt. If the productive pass rusher is able to play, he could be in store for a strong performance against an underwhelming Tennessee offensive line that allowed three sacks and 10 quarterback hits to the Saints last week.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Misses practice again Thursday

    Bosa (hamstring) did not participate at practice Thursday ahead of Sunday's game at Tennessee, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. It's appearing increasingly unlikely that Bosa will be able to suit up for the Chargers in Week 2. If he does indeed have to sit out, Morgan Fox or Tuli Tuipulotu will probably start on the edge opposite Khalil Mack on Sunday.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Not practicing Wednesday

    Bosa (hamstring) did not participate at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Tennessee.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Absent from scrimmage Sunday

    Bosa didn't participate in Sunday's scrimmage due to an illness, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Bosa missed most of the 2022 campaign due to a groin injury but said at the start of training camp this year that he added about 15-to-20 pounds during the offseason, something he hopes will make him a more effective player. While he wasn't on the field Sunday, it seems unlikely that his illness will impact his status for the start of the regular season. However, whether he suits up for Saturday's preseason opener against the Rams remains to be seen.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Adds weight over offseason

    Speaking with reporters Thursday, Bosa noted that he added about 15 to 20 pounds in the offseason and believes he'll "be a much more effective player and pass rush with my power," Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Bosa dropped down to about 250 pounds in 2021 as he transitioned from a traditional defensive end to an edge rusher who occasionally dropped into coverage under defensive coordinator Brandon Staley. He's now back to around the same weight as he was under former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and noted that the added weight is "a big part of my game to be able to be powerful and be strong." Bosa played in just five games in 2022 after landing on injured reserve due to a groin injury he suffered in Week 3 against the Jaguars. The 2016 Defensive Rookie of the Year has been an integral part of the Chargers' defensive pash rush, registering at least 10.5 sacks in four of seven seasons. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times.

  • Chargers' Joey Bosa: Set to play

    Bosa (groin) was activated off injured reserve Saturday. The Chargers will get a much-needed defensive jolt with the return of the Pro Bowler, who has missed the last 13 contests after tearing his groin. Bosa typically has been one of the team's better run defenders, but it remains to be seen how many snaps he'll see as he works back into proper game conditioning.
