The Chargers announced Friday that rookie defensive end Joey Bosa will not play in Sunday’s game in Indianapolis.
The Chargers also listed veteran tight end Antonio Gates, who did not practice all week due to a hamstring injury, as doubtful.
Rookie Hunter Henry is the likely starter in place of Gates.
Bosa practiced in pads for the first time this week but is still recovering from a hamstring injury and still catching up from missing almost all of training camp and the preseason in a contract dispute.
Guard Orlando Franklin was a full participant in practice Friday but is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury.
