Former Buckeye Joey Bosa will miss NFL opener
Ohio State fans hoping to see Joey Bosa on in an NFL game for the first time are going to have to wait at least another week.
Bosa, the former Buckeye, will not be making his debut with the Chargers on Sunday due to a leg injury. Bosa has what his new team is calling “tightness” in his left leg, and they aren’t rushing the pass rusher back to the field.
Joey Bosa says he's feeling better (leg wasn't wrapped) Says it's "frustrating and annoying" he won't play Sunday but "it is what it is"

It appears all but certain Joey Bosa will miss Week 1. Not practicing today. If he played Sunday, would be his first time in pads as Charger

Bosa, who recently ended his long contract dispute with the Chargers, has not yet practiced with the team in full pads. Bosa had 26 sacks in three seasons at Ohio State, and he was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
