The Los Angeles Chargers will be without their best defensive player for at least the "next couple weeks," according to Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn.

Following an earlier report that defensive end Joey Bosa would sit out Week 2, this further muddies the waters for fantasy owners with the Chargers defense in tow. 

While Bosa is believed to just be dealing with a bone bruise in his foot, his continued absence is concerning as the Bolts just aren't the same without his presence.

When he isn't in the lineup, the Chargers defense goes from must-start to a streamer, at best. The Chargers are still playable as a defense this Sunday against the reeling Buffalo Bills, but they'll need Bosa against the Los Angeles Rams to be a starting defense option in Week 3.
