Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said there's a "good chance" Bosa (concussion) won't be available Sunday against the Chiefs, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports. Bosa appears set to close out the 2020 campaign with consecutive absences due to his second concussion of the season. The 6-9 Chargers are eliminated from the playoffs, giving the team little incentive to rush the star defensive end back on the field. Isaac Rochell would likely draw a start if Bosa is in fact sidelined Week 17.
Bosa (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. The 25-year-old sustained the concussion during the Week 15 win over the Raiders and will be sidelined for at least one game. The Chargers have indicated they don't intend to shut Bosa down for the season, but the team is likely to remain cautious heading into the final week of the regular season. Isaac Rochell is poised for increased work at defensive end for Los Angeles.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Tuesday that Bosa is in the NFL's concussion protocol, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Popper notes that the Chargers don't intend to shut Bosa down for the season, but given that the star defensive end is dealing with his second concussion in eight weeks, the team may be hesitant to rush him back. Regardless, he'll need to return to practice and gain clearance from an independent neurologist in order to play Week 16 against the Broncos and/or Week 17 against the Chiefs.
Bosa has exited Thursday's game against the Raiders and is being evaluated for a concussion. Bosa was clearly playing through injuries Thursday, and he had four tackles (two solo) to begin overtime. If he's indeed placed in the concussion protocol, the star defensive end won't be eligible to retake the field. Earlier this season Bosa missed two games due to a concussion suffered Week 8.
Bosa (shin) doesn't carry an injury designation into Thursday's game against the Raiders. Bosa practiced on a limited basis both Tuesday and Wednesday, showing enough to avoid an injury designation for Thursday's game. This shin injury limited the pass rusher's practice reps earlier this month, but he has still suited up for games and will do so again here as he looks to build on his season total of 7.5 sacks.
