Los Angeles Chargers star LB Joey Bosa to have surgery, go on IR

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa will be placed on injured reserve, coach Brandon Staley said Wednesday.

Bosa suffered a groin tear in the first quarter of last Sunday’s 10:38 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The four-time Pro Bowl pass rusher is undergoing surgery, but Staley said he is expected to return this season.

“It’s going to be a long road, but we expect him to come back,” Staley said. “He’s optimistic and ready to attack. He’s in really good shape. It’s never easy when you have an injury like that.”

Sophomore Chris Rumph II and veteran linebacker Kyle Van Noy are expected to step in in Bosa’s absence. The Bolts also called for the waiver of outside linebacker Derrek Tuszka to add depth.

Left tackle Rashawn Slater is also placed on injured reserve, said Staley, who confirmed earlier this week that the pro tore his left biceps tendon in the sophomore loss to the Jaguars.

Bosa, a four-time Pro Bowl pick, has 1.5 sacks in three games this season. He has 59.5 sacks in seven seasons.
