COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa did not practice Thursday, leaving his status for the opener against Kansas City in doubt.
Bosa was not in pads during the early portion of practice that is open to reporters after being listed as limited on Wednesday’s practice report. The third-year player did not play in the preseason after he injured his left foot on Aug. 7
Coach Anthony Lynn did not sound optimistic about Bosa’s status, but said it’s possible he could still play.
Bosa has never missed a game because of injury since being selected as the third overall pick in the 2016 draft. He has 23 career sacks in two seasons, including an NFL-record 19 in his first 20 games.
If Bosa can’t play, the Chargers would be without two starters on the defensive line. Defensive tackle Corey Liuget is serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
