Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa did not practice for a second straight day and has been ruled out of Sunday’s season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a left foot injury.
According to the Chargers, Bosa’s left foot injury from a month ago has healed and he suffered a new injury to the same foot during practice Wednesday.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said that Bosa is week to week, and that his foot is not broken. Bosa was on the field, going through individual drills, and felt something wasn’t right in his left foot, according to Lynn.
Bosa declined to comment on the injury when approached by reporters in the locker room after practice Friday.
“It’s very frustrating,” Lynn said. “He’s been waiting for a while to get back on the field, and he’s doing everything he can. He just wants to be out there with his teammates. He’s pretty frustrated right now.”
Bosa suffered the initial injury, described by Lynn as a sore foot, on Aug. 7 during 11-on-11 team drills in practice. Afterward, Bosa hobbled off the field on his own and spent the rest of practice receiving treatment from the team’s training staff.
Bosa did not participate in any preseason games. However, the Chargers considered his injury minor and the expectation was he would be ready for the beginning of the regular season.
That all changed on Thursday, when Lynn said that Bosa might not play on Sunday after being a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.
“Foot injuries, they take on all the body weight,” Lynn said this week. “That can be tricky, something you don’t want to rush. You want to make sure that’s right before a player comes back.”
One of the biggest keys to stopping the Chiefs offense is to get pressure on Patrick Mahomes. We can’t allow him to sit back and wind up that arm to launch it deep down the field to Tyreek Hill. I would hate to have him lifting up that peace sign to Casey Hayward again. If we let Mahomes get that time, just look for the toast on the field.
Can Isaac Rochell really get after the quarterback and get the pressure that is needed?
I think Rochell will have his moments to shine, but there are times that he will disappear. I know we like him and believe that he can hold his own, but he isn’t Bosa. Rochell just won’t have the consistency at getting after the quarterback as Bosa would bring. We can’t deny that Bosa is a beast at pressuring offenses and setting up his teammates for success. We have to do some things a little different.
So what is good ol’ Gus Bradley going to cook up for this game? Who is he going to send?
I can see him getting the rookies involved in the pass rush. Ochenna Nwosu will come off the edge and get after the quarterback. Derwin James will get his opportunities and be sent in on a blitz. Melvin Ingram is going to have to dominate and someone else is going to have to step it up.
That’s right, this list is going to cover the top five performances that have ever been posted by a Chargers player in team history. That means that every Week 1 game dating back to 1960 was put under the microscope and it was quite difficult to narrow this list down to just five performances.
John Carney once kicked six field goals in a Week 1 game, accounting for all of the Chargers’ points in an 18-12 win over the Seattle Seahawks in 1993.Dan Fouts and LaDainian Tomlinson each had multiple impressive Week 1 games. Shawne Merriman started the 2006 season with a 3-sack performance.
Keenan McCardell caught two touchdown passes in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys in 1995 and even Bryan Still, one of the bigger draft busts in team history, had a great Week 1 game, catching six passes for 128 yards and a touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in 1998.
