Bosa (foot) will not travel with the team to Cleveland, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
The report confirms that Bosa won't play in Week 6 action. The target date for a return remains closer to Week 9, but nothing appears set in stone at the moment. Bosa's status for Week 7 remains in doubt considering his cast was removed just two weeks ago.
Bosa had his cast removed this week and is in a protective boot at this stage. Given that he still has instability in the tendon of his bruised left foot, it looks like the earliest he might see game action is Nov. 4 against the Seahawks.
Bosa, who is dealing with a bone bruise in his foot, will continue to proceed on a course of rest and rehab. As such, he remains week-to-week beyond Sunday's contest. Isaac Rochell is thus in line to continue filling in as a starting defensive end for the Chargers while Bosa is out.
Bosa traveled to Wisconsin on Wednesday to visit renowned foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, who diagnosed the star defensive end with a bone bruise in his left foot. While the Chargers are likely relieved that Bosa isn't dealing with a stress fracture, the team is still viewing him as week-to-week and anticipates that he'll miss at least a couple more games while he recovers from the issue. With Lynn essentially ruling Bosa out for Week 2, 2017 seventh-round pick Isaac Rochell is expected to see another healthy snap count at defensive end opposite Melvin Ingram.
Bosa still has a prognosis of "week-to-week," but fears from the Chargers organization that he may have a fracture in his left foot were dampened. Despite having two more chances to take the practice field before week's end, it'd be a surprise if he participates in anything more than a limited basis. While the team has yet to rule Bosa out for Sunday's matchup in Buffalo, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the pass rusher is unlikely to make an appearance Week 2.
