COSTA MESA, Calif. — Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa told reporters on Wednesday that he likely will be out at least until Week 8, his team’s bye week, while he rehabs from a bruised bone in his left foot that he suffered during training camp.
After seeing foot specialist Robert Anderson in Green Bay two weeks ago for a second opinion, Bosa got his cast off this week and is in a protective boot. The Ohio State product said he still has instability in the tendon of his left foot but remains optimistic that he can avoid surgery.
“It’s going to be a few more weeks [until he can get back on the field], and then when that time comes it’s really one day at a time,” Bosa said. “Right now we’re really trying to prevent surgery, which is looking good as long as I take my time and do everything right.

Bosa suffered the initial left foot injury on Aug. 7 during 11-on-11 team drills in practice. Bosa did not participate in
