|COSTA MESA DeAndre Washington Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa will miss the opener against Kansas City after reinjuring his left foot.
Coach Anthony Lynn said Friday that Bosa’s first foot injury had healed but that he suffered a new injury during Wednesday’s practice. Bosa first injured the foot on Aug. 7 during training camp and missed the preseason.
The Chargers had been cautious with Bosa during the preseason, hoping that another injury wouldn’t occur.
“He’s real frustrated. He’s been waiting for a while to get back on the field,” Lynn said. “It’s going to be week to week. We hope it doesn’t linger but it could.”
This will be the first time Bosa has missed a game because of injury since being selected with 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.
Bosa led the team last season in tackles (54) and sacks (12.5) while being second in tackles for loss (17.5) and quarterback hits (22).
With Bosa’s injury, the Chargers will be without two starters on their defensive line. Defensive tackle Corey Liuget is serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
Isaac Rochell will get his first NFL start in Bosa’s place. The second-year player saw extensive playing time during the preseason and led the team in tackles for loss (3) along with two sacks.
“Isaac had a great camp. He’s grown like a weed, stepped up and got the job done Matt Breida Jersey ,” Lynn said.
Rochell said the increased snaps have allowed him to develop more confidence and also gain the trust of coaches. He added that “you don’t want your coaches to feel like they are in survival mode.”
The defense’s biggest challenge this week will be containing Patrick Mahomes. The second-year quarterback uses his athleticism to keep plays alive, which has led to big gains downfield.
“He has a strong arm but has the threat of running,” Rochelle said. “With the other threats they have, there are going to be a lot of challenges.”
Lynn also said that he expects tight end Antonio Gates to be active for Sunday’s game. Gates re-signed with the team Monday, and Lynn said it looked as though Gates picked up where he left off last season.
A former New Orleans Saints cheerleader has filed a discrimination complaint against the NFL team with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Bailey Davis’ case was detailed in a New York Times article on Sunday. It says she was fired after posting a photo of herself to her private Instagram account. It showed her in an outfit that the Saints said violated team rules against its cheerleaders appearing nude, seminude or in lingerie. The Times also says the team was looking into whether she attended a party attended by Saints players – a rule violation Davis denies.
Her EEOC complaint states the team has two sets of rules: one for the cheerleaders Andre Tippett Jersey , who are all women; another, for the players.
The New York Times report said the Saints anti-fraternization policy requires cheerleaders to avoid contact with players, in person or online, even though players are not penalized for pursuing such engagement with cheerleaders. The cheerleaders must block players from following them on social media and cannot post photos of themselves in Saints gear. The same rules don’t apply to players, the report said.
”If the cheerleaders can’t contact the players, then the players shouldn’t be able to contact the cheerleaders Duane Brown Jersey ,” said Sara Blackwell, Davis’s lawyer. ”The antiquated stereotype of women needing to hide for their own protection is not permitted in America and certainly not in the workplace.”
A team lawyer said in an email to the newspaper that Davis was not subjected to gender discrimination.
”The Saints organization strives to treat all employees fairly, including Ms. Davis,” Leslie A. Lanusse, a lawyer who is representing the Saints, said in an email. ”At the appropriate time and in the appropriate forum Dwight Clark Jersey , the Saints will defend the organization’s policies and workplace rules. For now, it is sufficient to say that Ms. Davis was not subjected to discrimination because of her gender.”
