Joey Bosa, a mainstay in the LA Chargers defense, is in doubt for the trip to Kansas City this Sunday, after missing three consecutive workouts this week. In a major visit to Arrowhead Stadium to face Patrick Mahomes and company, the Los Angeles star quarterback would be a tough casualty.
Last game against Cowboys, Bosa left the field with ice on his leg, to which the team responded that it was a normal part of the game. A few days later, they rated it as an ankle and foot discomfort.
“His ankle has responded well, it’s game stuff, it’s not about anything long term,” coach Brandon Staley said Friday. “He is inflamed, but has given way over the days. He was able to do more work than yesterday, but we want to be careful.”
Staley mentioned that it will be a last-minute decision before the game, whether or not they use Bosa. Same case for defensive tackle, Justin Jones, who injured his calf in week 1.
“Every player is different, but I have full confidence in both Bosa and Jones, they have played this sport in the league for quite some time and they know the game plan. We have been able to have them present in the review of plays, so he gives them an insight. ability to play, even if they haven’t trained in the week, “Staley said.
Another player who will remain out is defensive back Chris Harris Jr after a shoulder injury in game one.
The start of the season is not an easy one for the LA Chargers, who are 1-1 after two dates. The Angelenos started off on the right foot with a win over Washington, followed by a painful last-minute loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Now, two consecutive divisional duels follow, beginning with a visit to the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday, followed by Monday Night Football on Monday, October 4 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
