The Los Angeles Chargers are expected to get arguably their best player on defense back on Sunday.
Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, L.A. plans to activate pass-rusher Joey Bosa from the COVID-19 list. He was on the list for this week due to being in close contact with defensive lineman Jerry Tillery.

Having Bosa in the lineup will be huge for the Chargers as they look to slow down the Steelers’ rushing attack with Najee Harris. So far this season, Bosa has 28 total tackles (20 solo), 5.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles.
Bosa will also look to be a difference-maker in the passing game. This could be a match-up where Bosa feasts, due to the Steelers’ offensive line troubles with pass protection.
It would not be surprising to see him go up against tackle Dan Moore, Jr, who has struggled at various points this season.
L.A. is also hoping that it can snap out of its funk. The Chargers started the season winning four of their first five games, but have since lost three of four to have a 5-4 record.
Kickoff will be at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
