Nick Bosa leaves 49ers practice after apparent injury; Robert Saleh doesn’t sound too concerned

Note: Article updated with defensive coordinator Robert Saleh's comments about the injury.

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa set off a barrage of tweets by reporters during Wednesday's practice when the rookie went down after a running play. Trainers were seen examining Bosa's lower right leg.

Bosa was able to get up and slowly walk off the field under his own power. Although, he was reportedly "walking gingerly." He did not return to practice.

Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh didn't sound too concerned about Bosa's injury while speaking with the media after practice.

"I think he's alright," Saleh said. "I still haven't heard from the performance staff but I don't think there's anything to worry about."

The 49ers later announced that Bosa, along with cornerback Jason Verrett, who also left the practice with an injury, is getting an MRI on his ankle.

The 49ers used the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft to select Bosa out of Ohio State. The defensive end missed most of the team's organized team activities and its entire June minicamp due to a low-grade hamstring strain. He has, however, participated in all of training camp.

Just minutes after Bosa left practice, wide receiver Marquise Goodwin went down after slipping on the field while running a route. He was seen grabbing his right leg. Goodwin was able to get up and walk off the field, but did so while "limping pretty noticeably."

Goodwin, unlike Bosa, was able to remain at practice, so the injury seems minor, at worst.

It has been a rigorous offseason for San Francisco 49ers pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both exited last season early due to injuries. First, a back injury sidelined Ford after Week 1. Then, during Week 2, Bosa exited after suffering a torn ACL on that awful MetLife Stadium field. What followed were two hellacious comebacks. But, the good news is that the end is in sight. Bosa and Ford will retake the field when the Niners open their season against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. Bosa showed off videos during his rehab, and the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year looked ahead of schedule during the process. Bosa's coaches never questioned the defensive end's work ethic. They know the pass rusher can accomplish whatever he sets his mind

49ers-Lions: Nick Bosa, Dee Ford assess their performance in return from injury

High on the list of positives for the San Francisco 49ers in their season-opening 41-33 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday was the performance of pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford, who were both effective in their first games back from injuries that held them out for most of the 2020 season. Bosa, who tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 season, had four tackles, one sack, three tackles-for-loss, and two quarterback hits in the win over the Lions. Ford, who was limited to one game in 2020 due to back issues, chipped in a sack of his own and put pressure on Lions quarterback Jared Goff on more than one occasion. Both players were limited in the preseason, so it was tough to say for sure what they would do over the course of a full game. But it's safe to say the

For those who may have doubted, George Kittle has repeatedly said that his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Nick Bosa, is pretty good at football. Unfortunately, fans didn't see much of the defensive end in his second NFL season, as his sophomore campaign was cut short by an ACL injury. While injury after injury followed Bosa's, the loss of the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was greatly felt throughout the roster. San Francisco finished with just six wins after entering the season with Super Bowl aspirations. NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and was asked which 49ers player he is most excited to see on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He answered before the question could be finished. "Bosa!" Baldinger quickly
