Bosa still has some soreness in his foot, but it hasn't limited his participation in OTAs, Joe Reedy of The Associated Press reports. "It's not causing a limp or anything. It's just something I notice," Bosa said. "It's been getting better all offseason, so I could definitely see by camp or maybe even next year where it kind of starts fading away. Once you get into season, it gets pretty intense, so we'll see." Bosa injured his left foot during training camp last year and missed the first nine games of the regular season. He returned for the final seven weeks to finish with 23 tackles (18 solo) and 5.5 sacks, adding another sack in two playoff appearances. Bosa is hopeful to make a full recovery at some point this summer, but he also acknowledged the possibility that the foot injury will be something he needs to manage all season.
The Chargers have exercised the fifth-year option on Bosa's contract, Field Yates of ESPN reports. With 134 tackles (101 solo) and 28.5 sacks in 35 career games, Bosa has shown no real weakness aside from durability. There's been no report of his 2018 foot injury lingering into the offseason, and he's now under contract at a discount price through 2020. The third overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft will celebrate his 24th birthday in July.
Bosa (foot) recorded five tackles (three solo) and two sacks in the 45-10 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. It appears as if Bosa is fully healthy, as the defensive end terrorized quarterback Josh Rosen throughout the game, recording the only two sacks of the contest. He'll face a far more difficult task next week against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers.
Bosa (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Bosa finally appears to have fully recovered from a foot injury sustained in early August. The 23-year-old made his 2018 debut last week in a rotational role, and is on track to retake his normal starting workload against the Cardinals on Sunday. Now back to full health, Bosa will line up opposite Melvin Ingram and shore up the edge of Los Angeles' defensive line.
Coach Anthony Lynn said that Bosa (foot) will start against the Cardinals on Sunday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. Bosa made his 2018 debut during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, but played only 31 of 56 defensive snaps and served as a backup to Melvin Ingram and Damion Square. The 2016 first-round pick did not suffer a setback during the Week 11 loss, and finally appears to have gotten healthy enough to return to his role as a starter. With Bosa returning to the starting lineup Week 12 against the Cardinals, Square will revert to his position as a backup.
