Asked about DE Nick Bosa on Tuesday, 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said, "We fully expect him to be ready for training camp." Bosa tore his left ACL in Week 2, but it sounds like rehab has gone well. This is his 2nd time going through the process -- the 1st came back in high school -- and Shanahan spoke highly of Bosa's setup (away from the team). Shanahan also this week related Bosa's impact on the defense to those of Aaron Donald and Von Miller to their respective teams. So it's clear the coach is excited to get his defensive playmaker back. We'll certainly keep an eye on the potential top-5 IDP lineman throughout the summer.

The MRI has confirmed that 49ers DE Nick Bosa tore his left ACL in Sunday's win over the Jets. So his season's done. It's also the 2nd ACL tear of his football career. Bosa previously tore his right ACL in high school. That at least means Bosa has been through the process. We'll see about his progress during the offseason. The Niners, meanwhile, agreed to a 1-year deal with DE Ezekiel Ansah to help fill the void.

Niners DE Nick Bosa left in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Jets with a left knee injury. The team ruled him out for the day in the 2nd quarter. We'll see about the severity, as Bosa is likely headed for a Monday MRI.

Update: HC Kyle Shanahan said after the game that it's "most likely an ACL," according to NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco. That probably means a tear. We'll await Monday confirmation, but that would be a big blow to San Francisco's defense.

The 49ers on Tuesday deemed DE Nick Bosa "week-to-week" with a muscle strain in his upper right leg. HC Kyle Shanahan said Bosa was preparing to play through it before an MRI revealed the strain. It doesn't seem like an issue that should threaten Bosa's start to the regular season, though we'll keep an eye on his situation. Bosa missed most of August last season with a hamstring injury, which sounds like the area holding him back now as well. That -- plus a September ankle sprain -- didn't stop him from registering an impressive rookie. DE Dee Ford is also out with a calf "irritation," but the team lists him as merely "day-to-day."

Niners DE Nick Bosa, DE Dee Ford and S Jaquiski Tartt are active for today's game against the Steelers. All entered the day questionable and are low-level IDP options at best. Ford, in particular, has been struggling through his return from a preseason knee sprain and should not be in fantasy football lineups. DB Jimmie Ward, meanwhile, is inactive once again. That keeps Tarvarius Moore in play for deep IDP leagues.

Niners DE Nick Bosa (ankle) is active for today's game against the Bengals. He had some soreness in his previously sprained ankle coming out of Week 1 and got some rest from practice during the week. But Bosa also graded out tops among all edge players in Pro Football Focus' pass-rushing productivity in Week 1. He's worth the risk against a Bengals offense that looks weak in pass protection.

Niners rookie DE Nick Bosa is questionable for Sunday's game at Cincinnati. Bosa came away from Week 1 with some soreness in his previously sprained ankle, GM John Lynch said during a radio interview Friday. Bosa sat out Wednesday's and Thursday's practices before returning to limited participation Friday. Lynch said Bosa was progressing well. We'll see if he's ready to go. There will be some re-injury risk even if he plays but also enticing sack upside.

Niners DE Nick Bosa is active for today's opener against the Buccaneers. He only recently returned from a sprained ankle that kept him out for the preseason, though, and shouldn't be in IDP lineups.

Niners GM John Lynch struck an optimistic tone in talking about rookie DE Nick Bosa on KNBR radio Friday. "He's come along really well," Lynch said, referring to Bosa working back from his ankle sprain. But Lynch added that the top pick remains uncertain for the start of the year. "Week 1, that's, I don't know, 50-50," he said. "But it's going to be touch and go as to whether he makes it." If Bosa does manage to make the active roster for that game, it seems unlikely the rookie -- who missed all of the preseason -- would play a big role. We'll see how soon Bosa can get back to full strength and push for starter-level playing time. The Bay Area News Group reported that Bosa was out of his walking boot and working on conditioning with trainers at Wednesday's practice.

Niners rookie DE Nick Bosa left Wednesday's practice with a sprained right ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That figures to keep him out for at least the 1st preseason game. We'll see what the timetable looks like beyond that.

The 49ers will practice without top pick DE Nick Bosa for "the next few weeks" (according to NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco) because of a Grade 1 hamstring strain. That's the lowest level on the scale, so it's not a serious situation in May. But Bosa's hamstring will bear watching come training camp. His brother missed the 1st 4 games of his 2016 rookie campaign with hamstring trouble. Nick Bosa, of course, sat out nearly all of his final Ohio State season following sports hernia surgery.

The 49ers selected DE Nick Bosa with the 2nd pick of the NFL Draft. He'll quickly find time in a front 7 that sports DeForest Buckner primarily on the inside and just traded for Dee Ford. The Niners tied for just 22nd in the league in sacks last year (37). Bosa missed most of his final season at Ohio State but racked up 8.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss as a 2017 sophomore. Expect him to be a productive player quickly, and he should be a high pick in dynasty rookie drafts with IDPs.
