Los Angeles Chargers star Joey Bosa expected to miss 8-10 weeks with a groin injury, sources say

Los Angeles Chargers pass-rusher Joey Bosa is expected to miss eight to 10 weeks with a groin tear, sources told ESPN.

Bosa underwent surgery Thursday — a day after being placed in the injured reserve — for the same injury his brother Nick Bosa sustained in Ohio state.

Chargers head coach Brandon Staley said last week that Bosa is “not returning in the foreseeable future” but that the four-time Pro Bowler is “optimistic and ready to attack it”.

Even if Bosa can return later this season, he probably won’t continue to operate as a top flyer, given the timeline in which a player’s performance is expected to return after a surgery like Bosa’s.

Without Bosa, the Chargers will turn to Chris Rumph II and linebacker Kyle Van Noy, who has been playing on the edge. The Chargers also claimed Derrek Tuszka on waivers last week.

Bosa has 1.5 sacks in three games this season and 59.5 sacks in seven seasons with the Chargers, who visit the Houston Texans on Sunday.
