Chargers put OLB Joey Bosa, DL Jerry Tillery on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Los Angeles Chargers have placed linebacker Joey Bosa and defensive lineman Jerry Tillery on the reserve/COVID-19 list, according to the transaction thread.

Bosa and Tillery’s standings for the Chargers’ Week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night is now in doubt.

Ahead of Sunday’s game against the Steelers, Bosa and Tillery are now on the COVID-19 list, along with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.

How soon Bosa and Tillery can return to training and whether they can play on Sunday will largely depend on whether they have tested positive for COVID-19 and whether they have been vaccinated.

Vaccinated players who test positive will need two negative tests at least 24 hours apart to return to the team. Unvaccinated players must isolate and test negative from the team for a minimum of 10 days before they can return. Unvaccinated players who have close contacts must isolate for five days and test negative every day before returning.

Over nine games, Bosa, a three-time Pro Bowler, has a team-high 5.5 sacks along with three forced fumbles and 28 tackles. Tillery has 30 hoists and 2.5 bags.

Bosa and Tillery must be activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday at 4:00 PM ET to play on Sunday.
