The Los Angeles Chargers have played most of this season without arguably their best defensive player: They clinched a playoff spot last week.
Sounds like a good time to win back a four-time Pro Bowler.

Joey Bosa has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to play for Los Angeles on Sunday in their Week 17 matchup against the LA Rams.
Bosa suffered a groin injury in Week 3 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and required surgery to repair a muscle. He was designated to return from IR earlier this week.
The 27-year-old has made each of the last three Pro Bowls and won Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2016. He was the third overall pick in that year’s draft out of Ohio State. His younger brother, Nick, was the second pick the following season.

Bosa had 1.5 sacks in the Chargers’ Week 1 win over the Los Vegas Raiders — he’s 59.5 in 82 career games, reaching double-digit sacks in four seasons.
NFL Network initially reported that Bosa’s injury would require a six-week recovery, but Bosa will have missed just over three months.
