Uchenna Nwosu Garners Praise From Coaches

Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Uchenna Nwosu racked up his first sack of the season against the Broncos last week, and sure enough, coaches were singing his praises this week. Defensive coordinator Gus Bradley told the media that Nwosu has been impressive in taking on more of a pass rushing role with defensive end Melvin Ingram (hamstring), and he also made a point of singling out cornerback Casey Hayward for praise as well. The Chargers Defense has a bit of a gift of a matchup this week because they'll be facing Pittsburgh's third-string quarterback, so they're a confident start in just about all leagues.

Uchenna Nwosu Leaves Early On Sunday

Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Uchenna Nwosu exited Sunday's game against the Saints in the third quarter and was wearing a wrap around his midsection afterwards. After the game, Nwosu told reporters that he felt a weird pain in his side when he was making a tackle, but he didn't seem to think it was very serious. The second-round pick from 2018 is slotted to be one of the team's starting linebackers, so everyone's hoping it's not too serious since the defense already lost Derwin James for upwards of three months. Updates are expected later in the week.

Uchenna Nwosu Comes Through In The Clutch

Los Angeles Chargers rookie linebacker Uchenna Nwosu came up big in Sundays game against Cincy to help seal the win. With 30 seconds left to go in the game and the Chargers up by five, Nwosu made an incredible speed rush to bring Bengals quarterback Jeff Driskel to the ground and end the Bengals final drive before it had the chance to get rolling. Nwosu and the rest of the defense really picked it up against Cincinnati to bail out an offense that surprisingly struggled. The Chargers defense has held opponents to less than 24 points in eight of their last nine games, and theyre a solid play in most weeks. They should probably be avoided this Thursday when the face the Chiefs though.
