The Chargers received some good news Saturday as well, and it was when Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported talented pass rusher Joey Bosa is likely to be taken off the Reserve/COVID-19 List. With Bosa in the lineup, the Chargers’ defense is significantly more stout, but the Chargers aren’t out of the woods yet when it comes to the other players on the COVID-19 List. According to Rapoport, the other players on the list are still pending.
The other Chargers players on the COVID list are still pending. So, no final word yet. https://t.co/gCkA1nRKKY— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 20, 2021
Bosa is having a solid 2021 regular season so far. Getting him back into the lineup will be a huge boost for the Chargers. Here is his stat line:
Game Starts: 9
QB Hits: 11
Forced Fumbles: 3
There is a good chance the Chargers vs. Steelers Sunday Night Football game could change even more. If the Chargers get more of their COVID-19 List players back they could make their lineup even more difficult for the Steelers to handle in prime time.
UPDATE: Joey Bosa was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 List, however defensive tackle Jerry Tillery as not.
