Los Angeles Chargers Pro Bowl offensive tackle Rashawn Slater ruptured his left biceps tendon and is done for the rest of the season, ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday.

Star pass-rusher Joey Bosa is also having tests Monday on his injured groin, per reports.

Bosa exited Sunday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first half and Slater left the game in the third quarter.

Bosa was trying to circle around left end in the first quarter when he hit the ground and grabbed at his upper right leg. He left the field under his own power but threw his helmet to the ground before heading to the locker room.

Slater, 23, has started 19 games for the Chargers since being selected 13th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Bosa, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, has 1.5 sacks on the season and four quarterback hits. In seven seasons, all with the Chargers, he has 298 tackles with 59 1/2 sacks in 82 games (77 starts).

The Chargers were without top wideout Keenan Allen and cornerback J.C. Jackson against the Jaguars. Quarterback Justin Herbert, banged up with a rib injury coming into the contest, played but was bothered throughout the game.
