  Chargers | Joey Bosa a game-time decision    Sun Sep 26, 08:33 AM

Los Angeles Chargers DE Joey Bosa (foot, ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Week 3's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs. He was listed as questionable on the injury report despite not practicing at all during the week. Despite experiencing some soreness, he has shown improvement each day and reportedly has a very realistic chance of getting on the field.

Footballguys view: Bosa's status is too dicey to risk in IDP lineups, but it is encouraging for the longer term prognosis of his injury.

  Chargers | Bryan Bulaga lands on IR    Fri Sep 17, 01:33 PM

Los Angeles Chargers OT Bryan Bulaga (back) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: The Chargers offensive line is much improved, but it lost a cornerstone when Bulaga went down. Back issues are always tricky, so his return is an unknown. At least the Chargers are facing the toothless Cowboys pass rush this week, but the Raiders and Browns are up in Weeks 3 and 4.

Los Angeles Chargers WR Keenan Allen registered nine receptions for 100 yards in the Week 1 road win against the Washington Football Team.

Footballguys view: Allen could lead the league in receptions this year if he plays in all 17 games. He would be a second round pick if drafts were held today. Next week he'll get to run routes against the Cowboys defensive backs.

  Chargers | Austin Ekeler finds end zone in Week 1    Sun Sep 12, 04:12 PM

Los Angeles Chargers QB Austin Ekeler ran 15 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Washington Football Team.

Footballguys view: Ekeler was curiously not targeted, which is probably an aberration. His touchdown came on first and goal from inside the five, which would signal a welcome change to Ekeler's use on goal to go plays. He'll be a top pick for Week 2 against the Cowboys even though his Week 1 was underwhelming.

Footballguys view: Herbert picked up where he left off last year, completing passes downfield with ease to a variety of receivers. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams look like hits with Herbert playing the way he did today. He'll get to pick on the Cowboys defense next week and should be in lineups.
