Chargers' Joey Bosa: All clear Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Ankle still bothersome
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Manages to play, records sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (ankle/knee/triceps) recorded one sack, two quarterback hits and a tackle in Monday's 30-27 overtime loss to the Saints.

It was clear Bosa was limited by a long list of injuries as the Chargers opted to just use the pass rusher sparingly. The end result saw the fearsome pass rusher record just 37 percent of the team's defensive snaps, but he still managed to bother quarterback Drew Brees just about every time he dropped back to pass. The bye week probably couldn't have come at a better time for Bosa, who will look to recover from his laundry list of injuries in time for the Week 7 matchup against the Jaguars.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Ready for Monday Night Football
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (ankle/knee/triceps) is officially active for Monday's game against the Saints.

The 25-year-old was originally considered questionable with triceps and knee issues, but he also picked up an ankle injury. Bosa has 12 total tackles and three sacks through four games and will lead the pass rush against a Saints offensive line that's surrendered only five sacks this season.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Also dealing with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa remains questionable for Monday's game against the Saints, as he is managing an ankle injury in addition to his triceps and knee issues, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

The 25-year-old was already considered questionable with the triceps and knee issues, but he's also picked up the ankle injury. Even if Bosa is cleared to play Monday, he figures to be less than 100 percent given the trio of injuries.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Questionable for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps/knee) is considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Saints, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Bosa has been a fixture on the injury report this season but has avoided missing time, although this was the first time this season he failed to practice fully during the week. The superstar defensive end is likely trending in the right direction still, but fantasy managers may want to start a replacement with the Chargers playing the second to last game of the week.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps/ankle) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice.

This appears to be the norm in the interim for Bosa, as he went NP/LP/FP last week with the same injuries before suiting up in the game. Don't expect this week to be any different, but if he does suffer a setback, Isaac Rochell and Jessie Lemonier would be in line for a decent uptick in snaps.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Good for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps/ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Bosa upgraded to a full practice Friday after having been either limited or held out to begin the week. The star defensive end has notched a sack in three straight games, and he'll look to keep that momentum up against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Upgrades practice participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps/ankle) was limited during Thursday's practice.

The two-time Pro Bowler has been playing through a triceps injury in recent weeks, though it doesn't seem to be an unmanageable injury given that he's recorded a sack in Weeks 1, 2 and 3. Bosa just played a season-high 98 percent of the defensive workload Sunday in a loss to the Panthers, but his ankle issue is a development that has popped up on the injury report this week. At this stage it doesn't appear Bosa's availability for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers is in serious question, though his level of involvement during Friday's practice may provide confirmation.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

Bosa has been on the injury report for the last two weeks with a triceps injury, and he's been able to play through it just fine. There isn't any real concern for his availability Sunday versus the Buccaneers unless he remains absent Thursday and Friday.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Three straight weeks with sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa picked up two tackles and a sack in the 21-16 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

It was another poor outing for Bosa, as he jumped offside or drew a neutral zone infraction on at least three plays throughout the course of the game. Luckily those gaffes don't count against IDP users, but it's been a bit surprising to see Bosa struggle so much with opposing hard counts. To make matters worse, he's been ineffective against the run as well with the Panthers repeatedly running directly at his side of the line. Three straight weeks with a sack is all fantasy managers will ask for, but the play on the field certainly has not warranted his massive offseason contract extension.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Sack masks poor outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa posted four tackles (two solo), one sack, one tackle for a loss and two quarterback hits in the overtime loss Sunday to the Chiefs.

Bosa's game probably looks better on the box score than it does in real life as the fearsome pass rusher was victimized by hard counts from Patrick Mahomes on multiple occasions that either extended a play or outright gave the Chiefs a first down. It's hard to fault Bosa given the matchup, and it seems likely he could have an opportunity to make similar plays next week against the Panthers' porous offensive line.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Ready to take on Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Kansas City, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bosa upgraded to a full practice Friday after having begun the week with an absence and a limited session. The Chargers will count on the star defensive end to dominate his matchups during Sunday's game against the reigning Super Bowl champions. Bosa is an every-week starter in IDP formats as long as he's on the field.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Upgrated to limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps) was a limited participant for Thursday's practice.

Bosa popped up on the injury report Wednesday; however, he suited up in some fashion Thursday after missing practice entirely just a day before. Expect the Ohio State product to be out there for Sunday's matchup against the Chiefs, but if he suffers a setback then Isaac Rochell and Uchenna Nwosu would be in line for an uptick in snaps.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Placed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa (triceps) didn't suit up in Wednesday's practice.

It's unclear how Bosa suffered the injury, however, it could be an opportunity to give the Ohio State product some rest during the week. Bosa racked up five tackles, one sack and two tackles for a loss in Sunday's win over Cincinnati. It's still too early to panic about his status for Week 2's matchup against the Super Bowl champion Chiefs.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Notches first sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa tallied five tackles, one sack, two tackles for a loss and three quarterback hits in Sunday's win over the Bengals.

Bosa wreaked havoc on rookie quarterback Joe Burrow throughout the game. He got to him for a sack early in the second quarter, taking Burrow down for a three-yard loss. Even when he didn't get home for a sack, he was regularly in the backfield causing pressure and incompletions. That's nothing new for Bosa, as he looks prepared to follow up on 11.5 sack season in 2019.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Inks massive extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa agreed to terms Tuesday with the Chargers on a five-year, $135 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Bosa's new deal is a record for defensive players and includes $102 million guaranteed. The contract ties the two-time Pro Bowler to Los Angeles for the next six seasons, solidifying his spot as one of the team's cornerstones for the foreseeable future. Still just 25 years old, Bosa has never finished with less than 10 sacks in seasons where he's played double-digit games. For the upcoming campaign, Bosa will once again suit up alongside Melvin Ingram to form one of the most formidable pass-rush duos in the league.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Caps off another Pro Bowl season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa posted 67 tackles, 11.5 sacks and a forced fumble throughout the 2019 season.

Bosa earned his second trip to the Pro Bowl by finishing tied for second in the AFC in sacks while also racking up the fifth-most tackles of any defensive end in the NFL. The Chargers are expected to make the fourth-year pro one of the highest paid defensive ends ever sometime this offseason, although the 24-year-old still is under contract thanks to the fifth-year option, which will pay him $14.4 million in 2020.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Compiles another sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa picked up four tackles and a sack in the 24-17 loss Sunday to the Raiders.

In an almost eerily similar fashion, Bosa is on pace to tie or surpass his 2017 figures in tackles (70) and sacks (12.5) thanks in large part to playing a full 16-game season for just the second time this season. Alongside Melvin Ingram, the Chargers still boast one of the most destructive pass-rushing duos in the NFL, although it remains to be seen if they'll wreak havoc on the Chiefs in a meaningless Week 17 contest.

Chargers' Joey Bosa: Adds five tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bosa made five solo tackles in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

It was Bosa's highest tackle output since logging seven in Week 8 against the Bears. He needs 11 more over the final two games to break his career high of 70.
