Chargers stars Melvin Gordon, Joey Bosa not ruled out vs. Seahawks
The Los Angeles Chargers have put together a strong start to the season having won five out of their first seven games played that has firmly put them in the position to make a run at the playoffs.
The Chargers are coming fresh off a bye week where the team has a tough matchup ahead on Sunday afternoon taking on the surging Seattle Seahawks. According to Eric D. Williams of ESPN, head coach Anthony Lynn has yet to rule out Pro Bowlers defensive end Joey Bosa or running back Melvin Gordon for this week’s game.
Returning from the team’s bye week, Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn would not rule out two frontline players for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Lynn said it remains possible that defensive end Joey Bosa and running back Melvin Gordon could make it onto the field at Seattle.
Gordon had missed Week 7 action due to some precautionary concerns with a hamstring issue that had arisen in the days leading up to the contest against the Tennessee Titans. Lynn has previously voiced that he anticipated the 25-year-old to be back in the fold after the one-game absence.
He has been a driving force for the offense behind his elite level of production in both the running and passing game. Gordon has registered 466 rushing yards and six touchdowns along with 30 receptions for 279 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He has posted two 100 rushing yard performances while scoring a touchdown in all but one game this season. Gordon’s return to the field will provide the Chargers with a huge boost to the offense.
Meanwhile, Bosa has missed the first seven games of the season due to a foot injury that occurred back in August during training camp. It’s something that he has continued to make progress in his recovery, but it has been slower than expected as there is no set date for his return. His status being up in the air for this week’s game is encouraging, but he’s likely to be out of the mix once again. Bosa has quickly become a star in the league with back-to-back Pro Bowl selections in his first two seasons while tallying 23.0 sacks over that span.
