Los Angeles Chargers Defensive Superstar Ready to Go in Week 17

The Los Angeles Chargers may finally have a chance to see the full potency of their pass rush in Week 17. Defensive end Joey Bosa is officially active for today's game against the Los Angeles Rams. Bosa has been unavailable since injuring his groin in the Chargers' Week 3 38-10 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He totalled 1.5 sacks and two tackles for loss in his three appearances this season.

Bosa is a four-time Pro Bowler and one of the league's highest-paid defenders, so his return should provide a massive boost to the Chargers defense. He should provide a deadly compliment to seven-time Pro Bowler Khalil Mack, who leads the team this year with 8.0 sacks.

The Chargers defense ranks 21st in points allowed entering today's game. Bosa's return might change that in a hurry.
