Bosa and Chargers defensive lineman Jerry Tillery were added to the list Tuesday. Chargers coach Brandon Staley told reporters Wednesday that Bosa is a close contact of Tillery, who tested positive for COVID-19.

Staley also said that Bosa returned a negative COVID-19 test result, meaning he could still play in Week 11. Bosa, who is not vaccinated, would need to wait five days and return no positive test results to return to the team.
