Bosa out, Gates doubtful for Sunday

Antonio Gates AP

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.

    busty bosa of 2016 is the same as clowney 2015. At least clowny attempted to step on the field, whereas busty bosa just want to collect money and sitting on his couch #smh.
    probably his mom told him to fake all these injuries so he doesn’t have to play…

    Unfortunate, but we all knew by holding out he wouldn’t be ready or possibly injured early in the season. Wondering if he’s created a new term, “Bosa’d”, as in not smart enough to know (what’s good for him) when to get into camp.

    Busty Bosa is a poor nickname. It just doesn’t flow. Try “No Show Joe” instead.

    The Chargers are a team full of soft players, just full of them.

    The highlight of Bosa’s year : Boas signs his contract.

    The Chargers were absolutely right when they changed the contract offer to a lower amount because he wouldn’t be able to contribute for the first 4 games or so. Bosa IS useless.

    Sounds like Bosa is gonna play (and hopefully not get injured) against the Saints. Sad to hear Gates is out, but I’m excited to see Hunter Henry out there.
