The Pro Bowl selection currently leads the league with 17.5 sacks despite having missed a game this season.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Picks up two more sacks Week 16

    Bosa recorded seven tackles (five solo), including two sacks, and forced a fumble in Saturday's 37-20 win over the Commanders. Bosa registered four quarterback hits in the victory, two of which went for sacks. The second of those takedowns resulted in a fourth-quarter Taylor Heinicke fumble that San Francisco recovered and ultimately converted to a field goal for a 10-point lead. Bosa has wreaked havoc on opposing QBs all season long -- he has at least one sack in 12 of the 14 contests in which he has played and leads the NFL with 17.5 sacks overall.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Held out of Wednesday's practice

    Bosa (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bosa opened Week 14 prep as a spectator during Wednesday's session, after head coach Kyle Shanahan previously said the star pass rusher is dealing with a "hamstring irritation" that the team will work through, per David Lombardi of The Athletic. Though the 25-year-old collected a season-high three sacks and forced a fumble on just 38 defensive snaps last weekend versus Miami, his status is definitely worth monitoring as the week goes on.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Remains limited Thursday

    Bosa (groin) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Bosa logged his second limited practice in a row Thursday after missing last week's loss to Atlanta with a groin strain. The star pass rusher recorded 15 tackles and a team-high six sacks over the first five games of the season, so it's possible the 49ers are handling him with extra care as he works back from this injury. Either way, Bosa will have one more practice to increase his activity before Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Chance to play Sunday

    San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Bosa has "a chance" to play Sunday against the Falcons, but the star pass rusher won't practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Bosa suffered a groin strain during the 49ers' Week 5 win over the Panthers. Though the 49ers don't believe he's dealing with a major injury, Bosa could still be at risk of missing at least one game. Bosa's participation in practice Thursday and Friday -- or lack thereof -- should provide further clarity regarding his availability for this weekend's game.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Forced out Sunday

    Bosa (groin) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Panthers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Bosa picked up a groin injury at some point during Sunday's game, which will keep him sidelined for the second half against Carolina. The two-time Pro Bowler recorded one tackle before exiting and has recorded a team-high six sacks through the first five weeks of the season, so his health status will be a major area of concern for San Francisco moving forward. With Bosa sidelined, expect Charles Omenihu, Drake Jackson and Kerry Hyder to see increased usage.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Pair of sacks in Week 4

    Bosa recorded three tackles, including two sacks, in Sunday's 24-9 victory over the Rams.

The 266-pounder also registered five QB hits and played 78 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps in Week 4, truly establishing himself as one of the elite pass rushers the NFL has to offer. He'll look to continue his game-wrecking efforts Sunday against the Panthers.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Nabs 1.5 sacks in NFCCG loss

    Bosa recorded six tackles (four solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Rams. Bosa turned in a stellar bounce-back campaign after missing the majority of his sophomore season due to a torn ACL. The 24-year-old phenom finished with 52 tackles (40 solo), 15.5 sacks and four forced fumbles across 17 games, putting himself in the conversation for NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Bosa now will enter the final year of his rookie contract, and he should be in line for a big payday even if he simply replicates this season's dominant results.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Cleared for Saturday

    Bosa cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Friday and no longer has an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Bosa suffered a concussion during the wild-card win over Dallas and was held out of practice at the beginning of this week. He then managed limited participation Wednesday and a full practice Thursday, before clearing the final hurdles Friday morning/afternoon. Bosa is one of the top pass rushers in the league, and he'll have a challenging matchup this week against Aaron Rodgers and his reliable O-line.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: No practice Tuesday

    Bosa (concussion) didn't practice Tuesday, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports. Late in the first half of Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Cowboys, Bosa slammed helmet-first into the knee of teammate D.J. Jones and eventually was ruled out due to a concussion. On Monday, coach Kyle Shanahan relayed that the 49ers were "optimistic" about Bosa's chances of gaining clearance ahead of Saturday's divisional-round game at Green Bay. Having said that, Bosa likely will need to make an appearance at practice Wednesday or Thursday to give himself a chance to do so on a short week.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Diagnosed with concussion

    Bosa has been ruled out of Sunday's wild-card game at Dallas due to a concussion. While rushing the passer late in the second quarter, Bosa's upper body collided with the lower body of teammate D.J. Jones, snapping his head back in the process. Bosa was able to walk to the locker room, but he didn't return to the field after halftime and won't reenter the contest following the diagnosis. Samson Ebukam and Arden Key will assume Bosa's role for rest of the 49ers' playoff opener.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Dominant in third year

    Bosa finished the 2021 regular season with 52 tackles (40 solo), 15.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. Bosa bounced back from a major knee injury in 2020 to not only reclaim the dominant form we saw in his rookie campaign, but he also took another step forward as a pass rusher and backfield disruptor. From a fantasy standpoint, the 24-year-old's prowess for accruing sacks helped offset the lower tackle totals of a defensive lineman. Barring injury this postseason and offseason, Bosa will enter the 2022 campaign as one of the top defensive players in the league while serving as the motor that drives San Francisco's defense.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: To have surgery this week

    Bosa is slated to have surgery on his torn left ACL and associated cartilage damage this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Bosa was one of a number of 49ers to suffer injuries of varying severity last Sunday against the Jets, but only his and Solomon Thomas' (torn ACL) were season-enders. Once the procedure is complete, the 49ers likely will have a better idea of his recovery timeline, but they are hopeful Bosa will be healthy by Week 1 of the 2021 campaign. For the rest of this season, though, the team's pass rush will be led by Arik Armstead, Dee Ford (back), Kerry Hyder, Dion Jordan and Ezekiel Ansah.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Diagnosed with torn ACL

    Bosa officially suffered a torn ACL in his left knee Sunday against the Jets, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Bosa was carted off the field in the first half and didn't return. Eventually, Adam Schefter of ESPN revealed the second-year pass rusher likely suffered an ACL tear. Now, the results of an MRI have confirmed the extent of the injury. While this is a huge hit to the 49ers defense, the one silver lining is that Bosa should be healthy for the start of the 2021 campaign. In his absence, some combination of Kerry Hyder, Dee Ford (back) and recent signee Ezekiel Ansah will get pass-rushing snaps opposite Arik Armstead.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Expected for Week 1

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he would be surprised if Bosa (leg) wasn't available for Week 1, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bosa has been sidelined with the muscle strain for the past week and underwent an MRI to confirm there was no significant damage. The fact that Bosa's coach has confidence in his status for Week 1 is a strong sign for his availability, so expect the All-Pro to be ready to go against the Cardinals on Sept. 13.
