Injuries are continuing to mount for the Los Angeles Chargers.
Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa suffered a left foot injury early in practice during team drills and did not return. Rookie DT Justin Jones sustained an ankle injury. Both players will be re-evaluated at the team hotel.— Eric Williams (@eric_d_williams) August 7, 2018
Those two names are very concerning to see on the injury list, however, the initial reports don’t seem to be overly serious. I hope that proves to be true.
Joey Bosa is about as vital of a piece of this team as it gets. If his injury is even moderately serious, this will be very bad. However, based on the reports that he walked off under his own power and the fact that the Chargers have already dealt with a bunch of injuries, I am betting the team is playing it safe and want to have him fully checked out before he participates anymore.
Justin Jones also figures to be heavy in the team rotation, especially with Corey Liuget out for the first 4 weeks with his suspension.
Hopefully neither of these will be serious and they’ll both be back playing and practicing soon.
Well it looks like it is good news:
Regarding Chargers’ DE Joey Bosa hobbling off the practice field today with left foot pain, one source with knowledge of the injury said: “He’s fine. Nothing serious.” https://t.co/1EYCcT48yR— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 7, 2018
Update on 8-9-18:
The walking boot seems to be a precaution more than anything but it’s still not the best news. Not sure how long Jones will be out for, at this point.
