Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Joey Bosa recently underwent surgery to repair a dislocated finger on his right hand.
Bosa suffered the injury as a rookie and played the entire 2017 season with it. The recovery time is expected to be six weeks, ESPN reported.
Despite the injury, Bosa appeared in all 16 games for Los Angeles and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2017 after racking up a team-leading 12.5 sacks.
A former first-round pick (No. 3 overall) out of Ohio State in 2016, Bosa also enjoyed a stellar first season with 10.5 sacks in 12 games, earning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Bosa had 70 tackles and four forced fumbles last season.
