San Francisco 49ers DE Nick Bosa is officially questionable for Saturday night's game against the Packers after suffering a concussion in the Wild Card win at Dallas. HC Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, though, that Bosa's chances of playing are "looking good," according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. LB Fred Warner, meanwhile, carries no injury status into Saturday's game after hurting an ankle against the Cowboys.
Niners DE Nick Bosa says the beginning of this year's training camp has been "completely different" because of better health. "Last year, I didn't really take any reps until a couple of weeks before the year," he said Friday, per NBC Sports Bay Area. Last year's camp found Bosa still working back from the ACL tear that ended his 2020 campaign in Week 2. His rookie camp featured Bosa missing a lot of time with a hamstring injury. The beast still managed 15.5 sacks and a league-leading 21 tackles for loss in 2021. And he was no slouch as a 2019 rookie (25 QB hits). If we get an even better version of Bosa this year ... we might not even know yet what the ceiling is. Grant Cohn of All49ers.com told us on Friday's podcast that San Francisco has a shot to sport the league's best defense this season. Bosa is a key factor in that.
The 49ers announced Friday that DE Nick Bosa has cleared the concussion protocol and carries no injury status into Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers
The 49ers lost DE Nick Bosa to a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's win over the Cowboys. We'll see whether he can make it back in time for the Divisional-Round matchup with Green Bay.
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.
