Joey Bosa Injury Updates

Chargers DE Joey Bosa is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos after managing limited practices all week in his return from the foot injury. Even if he's active this week, the team has already said he'll play a limited role. IDP owners are probably best off sitting him for this week -- but stashing Bosa now for the stretch run.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa put in a limited practice Wednesday, marking his 1st participation since Wednesday of Week 1. We'll see whether he's ready to play against the Broncos on Sunday. We'll also see how soon he can get back to a full snap allotment after missing the 1st 9 games with a foot injury. But Bosa should be stashed now in most IDP leagues.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa said Wednesday he expects to remain out with his foot injury through the team's Week 8 bye. That would put him back on Nov. 4 at Seattle, if he's ready when the Chargers return to action. We'll obviously see about that. In the meantime, he's droppable in nearly all redraft IDP leagues (if you haven't done so already).

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers DE Joey Bosa is expected to be out "into October" with his foot injury. Bosa is rehabbing the foot but is reportedly still dealing with swelling. And surgery remains a possibility. Bosa is droppable in shallower redraft IDP leagues. Isaac Rochell played 91% of defensive snaps in Bosa's place in Week 1 but needs to show he can deliver us numbers before we trust him in fantasy football lineups. A Week 2 visit to Buffalo does present upside, though.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers DE Joey Bosa is not expected to play Sunday in Buffalo. Bosa visited foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Wednesday but remains week-to-week. Bosa is dealing with a bone bruise, which he suffered in practice last week. A previous injury to the same foot from early August had healed before the bone bruise occurred, according to the team. We'll see about Bosa's status for Week 3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chargers DE Joey Bosa could miss 2-4 weeks because of the foot injury that has already ruled him out for Week 1. Bosa is dealing with a bone bruise in his left foot, and the team reportedly fears he might have a fracture. We'll keep an eye out for further updates on the issue.

The Chargers have ruled DE Joey Bosa out for the opener against Kansas City because of a foot injury. We'll keep an eye on his status for Week 2. Bosa's absence certainly hurts the Chargers, but their defense remains an upside option for fantasy owners in Patrick Mahomes' 2nd career start.

Chargers DE Joey Bosa missed Thursday's practice with a foot injury. That marked a step back from his limited participation Wednesday and casts some doubt on his status for Sunday's opener against the Chiefs. We'll keep an eye on his status when the Friday injury reports come out -- and through the weekend, if necessary. Even without Bosa, the Chargers' team D would carry upside in Patrick Mahomes' 2nd career start.

Chargers DE/OLB Joey Bosa left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss at Carolina with a neck injury. We'll watch for updates on his status.
