Bosa (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
The 25-year-old will finish the season with two straight absences after suffering the concussion Week 15. Bosa ends the 2020 campaign with 39 tackles (29 solo), 7.5 sacks and one fumble recovery in 12 games.
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.
Bosa (shin) was a limited participant during the Chargers' practice session Thursday, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Bosa racked up nine tackles, three sacks, one pass deflection and a fumble recovery while fielding 85 percent of the defensive snaps last Sunday in a loss to the Bills. The two-time Pro Bowler was not declared to have inherited an injury postgame, so a DNP on Wednesday raised eyebrows. He's dealt with a myriad of health issues in 2020, including injuries to his triceps, ankle and knee in addition to a concussion, but the shin injury is a new development. Given that he's already upgraded to limited participation in practice, Bosa is seemingly on the right track toward suiting up Week 13 against the Patriots. His availability Friday will go a long way towards confirming as such.
Bosa didn't suit up in Wednesday's practice due to a shin injury.
Both Bosa and Uchenna Nwosu (shoulder) resided on Wednesday's practice report, so the team is starting the week thin at defensive end. Bosa is coming off an eight-tackle, three-sack performance in last week's win over the Bills, so the team could be trying to manage his practice reps during the week. Bosa's participation level at practice during the rest of the week will be a better indicator of his chances to play Sunday against the Patriots.
Bosa recorded eight tackles, three sacks, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Bills.
Bosa has put up two sacks in nine different games since entering the league in 2016, and he finally recorded a trio of sacks for the first time in his career. This was a magnificent outing for Bosa, as he also tied his career high in tackles. He'll look to keep it rolling against Cam Newton and the Patriots in Week 12.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn confirmed after Wednesday's practice that Bosa has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Bosa was a full participant in the Chargers' first Week 11 practice, and the confirmation from his coach that he's no longer in the concussion protocol clears the way for the starting defensive end to return from a two-game absence Sunday against the Jets. Through seven outings this season, Bosa has accrued 18 tackles and 4.5 sacks.
Coach Anthony Lynn said Wednesday that Bosa (concussion) is still in concussion protocol, though Lynn added that the team might have more info about Bosa's status by the end of the day, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bosa hasn't played since sustaining a concussion in Week 8, but he was able to practice on a limited basis last week, suggesting that he's trending in the right direction. If the standout pass rusher is cleared in time to face the Jets on Sunday, he'll have a terrific opportunity to add to his season total of 4.5 sacks against one of the league's least impressive offensive lines.
Bosa (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Bosa managed to log a trio of limited practices this week, but he won't gain full clearance from the league's five-step concussion protocol in time to suit up against Miami. With Bosa out again, Jerry Tillery could get another opportunity to start across from Melvin Ingram.
Bosa (concussion) participated in individual drills during Wednesday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Coach Anthony Lynn said that Bosa remains in the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. That said, Bosa's return to practice even in a limited capacity is an encouraging sign for his chances of playing Sunday against the Dolphins. Jerry Tillery benefited the most from Bosa's absence in the Chargers' Week 9 loss to the Raiders, playing 82 percent of the defensive snaps while recording a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
Bosa (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.
The 25-year-old was considered doubtful for Sunday's contest, so it's no surprise he's not suiting up. Bosa still needs to clear the concussion protocol if he's to return for Week 10. Isaac Rochell and Uchenna Nwosu figure to see increased snaps in his absence.
Bosa (concussion) is officially listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Bosa will need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before being cleared to retake the field, and he appears to be a longshot for Week 9. An absence by the star defensive end could provide Derek Carr the luxury of more stable protection in the pocket.
Bosa (concussion) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.
Bosa suffered a concussion in this past Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and he's in the league's five-step protocol. The 25-year-old will aim to return to practice in a limited session by the end of the week. He's in danger of missing this Sunday's matchup against the Raiders, in which case Uchenna Nwosu and Isaac Rochell would take on larger roles.
Coach Anthony Lynn confirmed that Bosa suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, Andrew Siciliano of NFL Network reports.
Bosa now will need to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. He'll be monitored throughout the week, but he's in danger of missing the Week 9 matchup against Las Vegas. Uchenna Nwosu and Isaac Rochell will battle for the starting defensive end role if Bosa can't go.
Bosa is being evaluated for a concussion and has exited Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Bosa will need to avoid landing in the concussion protocol for any chance of retaking the field Sunday. The star defensive end was forced out in the middle of the fourth quarter. Isaac Rochell and Uchenna Nwosu stand to handle increased defensive snaps as long as Bosa is sidelined.
Bosa (ankle/triceps/knee) was absent from Wednesday's injury report.
The fact that the Ohio State product appears to be fully healthy is extremely positive news for the team coming out of its bye week. Bosa continued to play through several issues prior to the bye; however, he only played in 37 percent of defensive snaps last time out in Week 5. Now that he's been left off the injury report, the hope is that Bosa has moved past the injuries to return to his old self, wrecking havoc along the defensive line.
Bosa, who suited up in Monday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Saints, said his ankle is bothering him the most among his array of injuries, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.
Bosa added that he likely wouldn't have been ready to play Week 5 if the game had been Sunday rather than Monday. The defensive end recorded a sack in the loss to New Orleans but was limited to playing just 37 percent of the defensive snaps. He should benefit from the schedule change that has the Chargers on bye in Week 6, but his practice participation will be worth monitoring next week ahead of an Oct. 25 matchup with the Jaguars.
