Joey Bosa to debut on Nov. 4 against the Seahawks
The San Diego Chargers have been without their top pass rusher Joey Bosa all season, but he’s set to make his season debut on Nov. 4 against the Seattle Seahawks. Bosa, who was drafted No. 3 overall in the 2016 NFL draft, has been battling a bone bruise in his left foot.
According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, Bosa has been running over the course of the past two weeks. The Chargers have a bye coming up next week, so Bosa will have a great opportunity to mesh with the team to prepare for the Seahawks. With him back will give the Chargers a new dynamic, as their defense has struggled to produce pressure without him.
Joey Bosa has recorded an astounding 28 sacks in his first two seasons in the NFL. Through six weeks, the Chargers have only produced eight. Only the Kansas City Chiefs have recorded fewer sacks than them this year, but their offense is one of the league’s best.
Despite absence of Bosa, the Chargers entered this week’s matchup with the Tennessee Titans sporting a 4-2 record, which isn’t bad at all. However, injuries to their receiving corps and star running back Melvin Gordon have become a hinderance to them.
If they can get a win over the Titans, they’ll be in a great spot come Week 9, when Joey Bosa returns. They currently sit one game behind the Chiefs in the AFC West. The Chiefs will play the 4-2 Cincinnati Bengals today, so there’s potential for the Chargers to move into a tie for the top spot i the division.
