Los Angeles Chargers stars Joey Bosa and Austin Ekeler were held out of practice for the second straight day Thursday.

Bosa is bothered by a hamstring injury. It is unclear whether the elite pass rusher will be ready for Sunday’s road game against the Tennessee Titans. He reported soreness following a season-opening 36-34 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Ekeler is dealing with an ankle injury he sustained during the loss to the Dolphins. He had 117 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 carries and also caught four passes for 47 yards.

Bosa, 28, a four-time Pro Bowler, has 60.5 career sacks in 85 games (80 starts) for the Chargers, dating back to the 2016 season when the franchise was located in San Diego.

Ekeler, 28, joined the Chargers in 2017 and has 3,844 yards and 35 touchdowns on the ground as well as 393 receptions for 3,495 yards and 29 scores. He has scored 39 touchdowns (26 rushing, 13 receiving) since the start of the 2021 season.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks (hamstring) also had missed practice the past two days. Kendricks, 31, is in his first season with the Chargers after eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.
