Reports: Chargers’ Austin Ekeler, Joey Bosa to go on COVID list

Los Angeles Chargers running back Austin Ekeler, defensive end Joey Bosa and center Corey Linsley are being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, multiple media outlets reported Monday.

The Chargers, however, have yet to announce any such moves as of early Monday afternoon. The team is expected to add more names to the list, per the reports.

Ekeler, 26, leads the team in carries (173), rushing yards (789) and rushing touchdowns (10) in 14 games this season. He also ranks third in catches (62) and receiving yards (558), while his seven receiving scores are tied with Mike Williams for the club lead.

Bosa, 30, went on the COVID-19 list last month as a close contact, however, he did not miss a game. The three-time Pro Bowl selection has 9.5 sacks and six forced fumbles to go along with 43 tackles this season.

Linsley, 30, has started all 14 games this season for the Chargers and 113 in which he has played in his NFL career.
