Chargers’ Joey Bosa Returns To Practice

Joey Bosa could be nearing a return to the field. The star linebacker joined the Chargers for practice on Wednesday, albeit in a limited capacity. Bosa still may need time time to get in football shape, but it’s a positive development.

Bosa, 23, has been sidelined with a bone bruise all year long. Initially, doctors were hopeful that he would be able to suit up for Week 9, but the injury took longer than expected to heal.

The Chargers ranked third against the pass last season thanks in large part to Bosa, but they’ve somehow managed to stay afloat without him. The Bolts are 7-2 with their only losses coming against the Rams and Chiefs, two of the very best teams in the NFL.

In his first two NFL seasons, Bosa racked up a combined 23 sacks and 111 tackles. The Bolts have the former No. 3 overall pick under contract through 2019 and will control him through at least 2020 via the fifth year option.

    Almost all the Chargers wins came against the league’s dregs. Two wins against the Raiders and victories over weaklings like the 49ers, Browns and Bills. They have 2 games remaining with the inept Broncos plus matches with the Cardinals and Colts. You would have to be a terrible team to miss the playoffs with a schedule as soft as this one.

      But the two losses were close and their pathetic kicking and special teams cost them against the rams and chiefs. Missed field goals, extra points, and fumbling on the 4 yard line (during chiefs game was a killer when they were back in it and had momentum) Not saying the outcome would be different but the offense and defense is excellent. If they solve the special teams they can hold their own. Lots of people don’t realize how good Gordon and rivers are and with Bosa coming back they have a shot to make a good run. Bash them all you want for winning against subpar teams, they are the games you’re suppose to win.

    Playing schedule game = weak. Rivers having MVP year and game behind Chiefs. Play in Pitt and in KC so have work ahead. They can prove naysayers wrong and get homefield 1st week off.

    They need to hold him out atleast 2 more weeks. A dangerous healthy Bosa with fresh legs going into the playoff run. Watch out
