Uchenna Nwosu To Miss Time With Shoulder Sprain

Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Uchenna Nwosu (shoulder) is expected to miss around three weeks with a Grade 2 AC joint sprain in his shoulder after getting injured in the Week 11 win over the Jets. Nwosu will seek a second opinion but will be a candidate for Injured Reserve. A second-round pick out of USC in 2018, the 23-year-old has contributed 23 tackles (15 solo), eight QB hits, two passes defensed and 3.5 sacks in 10 games so far this season. The Chargers Defense will be a little bit short-handed in the middle of the field for at least the next three weeks. They'll be more of a back-end starting fantasy unit against a high-powered Bills offense coming off their bye in Week 12.

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.
