Head Coach Anthony Lynn announced earlier this week that Joey Bosa was heading for a second opinion for a foot injury he suffered last week in practice.
The Chargers provided an update on the defensive end on Thursday, and the diagnosis remains the same – Bosa has a bone bruise in his foot.
The recommended course of action going forward is rest and rehab. Bosa remains week to week, but has already been ruled out for Week 2’s clash with the Buffalo Bills.
During his daily press briefing, Head Coach Anthony Lynn answered several questions about the star defensive end, shedding additional insight into his injury. As Lynn explained, the team was happy to hear the diagnosis remains the same even though Bosa remains week to week.
“It’s always good that it wasn’t something worse,” he said. “But, we’d love to have him back. But we’re not going to put him out there before he’s ready.”
Lynn expanded on those comments, explaining how the team will take a cautious approach when it comes to Bosa’s return to the field.
“He’s going to be out this week for sure, but we figured that,” he added. “We hope (to get him back). But we’re going to be really cautious with this injury because we don’t want it to linger. So, when he’s healthy, we’ll get him back out there.”
