The Los Angeles Chargers downgraded the status of Joey Bosa for the game on Sunday. Thus, he will miss the game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Bosa did not participate in the team’s practice this week due to toe and hamstring injuries. However, the team listed Bosa as questionable on the injury report last Friday.
Bosa is a four-time Pro Bowl selection. According to bookie PPH reports, he suffered a hamstring injury in Week 1 of the season against the Miami Dolphins. Bosa’s toe injury in Sunday’s win against the Vikings has kept him out of practice and games. Still, Bosa is the team leader in sacks with three, all of which have come in the last two games despite his playing the fewest snaps of any outside linebacker.
According to NFL news reports, injuries derailed the 27-year-old after being named to the Pro Bowl three years in a row (2019–2021). After injuring his groin in Week 3 of the previous season, Bosa only played in five games last year. The Chargers listed him as questionable every game this season.

Tuli Tuipulotu, an outside linebacker drafted by the Chargers in the second round when Joey Bosa was injured, has been a critical contributor to the team’s defense. Next Gen Stats place Tuipulotu third among rookies who have played 100+ snaps this season with 13 QB pressures. Additionally, Tuipulotu’s two sacks place him second on the team and first among rookies.
According to pay per head blog sources, center Corey Linsley and safety JT Woods have been put on the reserve/non-football sickness list, meaning they will miss the next four games for the Chargers. A team representative said that Linsley’s cardiac problem is not life-threatening.
The Chargers brought up wide receiver Keelan Doss and outside linebacker Andrew Farmer from its practice squad. In addition, the team added safety Dean Marlowe to the active roster.
