Joey Bosa is likely to miss Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Now, his coach admits there's a chance he's out for longer than that.

Bosa is dealing with a foot injury that already cost him the Los Angeles Chargers first game, a loss to division rival Kansas City Chiefs.

Fans may have to wait a bit to see the former Ohio State star begin his third NFL season.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn revealed more about this Joey Bosa injury to SiriusXM NFL Radio earlier today.

Via NFL.com:

"He's week to week but he'll probably be gone for the next couple weeks," Lynn said, via Ross Tucker.

[...]

Lynn's comments confirm NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport's report that Bosa is week to week. Rapoport added that Bosa is not expected to need surgery on the injured foot, which was a new issue separate from the one that held the pass rusher out of the preseason.

On Wednesday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Bosa was set to visit Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot specialist in Green Bay, and that he could be out beyond this Sunday.

The Chargers, which were lit up by the Chiefs' explosive offense, definitely need Bosa back as soon as he's good to go.

Through two NFL seasons, he has 23 career sacks through 28 pro games.
