It was reported earlier today that Joey Bosa was seen in a walking boot at today’s practice, and now it is official that the Los Angeles Chargers’ superstar defensive end will miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Ian Rapoport reported via Twitter:

Following his injury early in training camp, Bosa missed all of the preseason and only returned to practice earlier this week. It seemed that his left foot had healed in time for the season, however, and that he would ready to go for the season opener. ESPN’s Eric Williams reports that this was the case, but that Bosa suffered a new injury to the same foot:

It seems more likely that Bosa returned perhaps too early and has reaggravated his original injury. We will have to wait to see if that is the case. For now, Chargers fans can console themselves with the news that his foot is, at least, not broken and he remains week-to-week according to Mike DiGiovanna:

That hardly qualifies as good news, but it is certainly not as bad as it could be.
