Chargers Injury Update: Bosa expected to miss 8-10 weeks

Bosa is going to be out a bit longer than expected

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

When information first started coming out about Joey Bosa’s injury the initial speculation was that Bosa could be back in as little as 4-6 weeks. Well, according to Adam Schefter and his sources, it’s going to be quite a bit longer than that.

8-10 weeks is a long time, especially considering the injury happened in week 3. That means, at the earliest he’ll be back for week 11. While that is still early enough to possibly help with a late season playoff run, it does leave the Chargers with a severely downgraded pass rush for a large chunk of the season.

Guys like Chris Rumph are going to need to step up in a big way to help keep this team winning enough games to chase the playoffs while they wait for some of their star players to heal up and get back in the fight. A lot of people thought it was a bit of a luxury move to bring in Khalil Mack, but now it’s looking like an even smarter move with Bosa needing to miss multiple months of football.
