Chargers head coach Brandon Staley confirmed that’s the case during a Wednesday press conference. Because that’s the case, there’s still a chance Bosa will be able to play on Sunday night against the Steelers.
Had Bosa tested positive for COVID-19, he would be out for at least 10 days. As a close contact, he can return five days after the contact as long as he does not test positive in the interim.
Defensive tackle Jerry Tillery also went on the COVID-19 reserve list on Tuesday and there’s been no word on his chances of making it back in time to play this weekend.
