  • Coach Brandon Staley confirmed that Joseph tested positive for COVID-19, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports. Joseph's positive test will make him the third Chargers defensive lineman to be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list alongside Jerry Tillery (illness) and Christian Covington (illness). Joseph is reportedly unvaccinated according to Joe Reedy of the Associated Press, which would cause the veteran defensive tackle to miss this Sunday's matchup against the division-rival Broncos. Backup Breiden Fehoko should be in line to start once again after seeing the majority of the snaps at defensive tackle with Joseph out last Sunday.

  • Joseph (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. Joseph was considered doubtful ahead of Sunday's primetime matchup, so his status doesn't come as a surprise. Forrest Merrill and Andrew Brown could see additional playing time against the Steelers.

  • Joseph (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. It is not known precisely how or when Joseph picked up the injury, but it presumably occurred in the Week 10 loss to the Vikings. The 33-year-old still has a couple more practices to show he can go Sunday, but if he can't, Christian Covington and Justin Jones would be in line for more work.

  • Joseph recorded nine tackles (eight solo) along with 1.5 tackles for loss in the Chargers 27-24 win over the Eagles on Sunday. Joseph was a dominant force in the win, finishing with his best numbers all season. Statistically, the Chargers have the worst run defense in the NFL, and teams have been able to run on them at will, however, Joseph's possible emergence as the primary run stopper should be seen as a positive sign for the Chargers.

  • Joseph had eight tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 30-24 win over the Chiefs. It's the first time since 2018 the veteran defensive tackle tallied at least eight tackles, and he did so Sunday while playing only 39 of 79 defensive snaps. The 32-year-old isn't on the IDP radar and remains a much more valuable player on the field than for fantasy purpoes.
