According to Ian Rapoport, Chargers DE Joey Bosa is scheduled to travel to Green Bay to visit with renowned foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Wednesday for a second opinion regarding his foot injury.
Rapoport says that the timing of this suggests Bosa is unlikely to be available for Week 2’s game.
Sources have described Bosa’s injury to Rapoport as being a bone bruise that isn’t considered a major issue. Even so, it’s enough of a problem to keep him out of the lineup for the season opener and he was seen in a walking boot earlier this week.
As of now, Bosa is considered week-to-week with a foot injury. He actually suffered a different foot injury back on Aug. 7, which forced him to miss the entire the preseason, but unfortunately sustained a different injury to the same foot on Wednesday.
Bosa, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $25.8 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $630,000 and $720,000 over the final two years of the agreement.
The Chargers have a fifth-year to pick up regarding Bosa next year.
In 2017, Bosa appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and recorded 70 tackles, 12.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, a recovery and a pass defense.
