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.

Why Kyle Shanahan isn't concerned with high number of interceptions in 49ers practices

San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks have thrown several interceptions during the early practices of training camp. Looking at it from a defensive perspective, that's good. Not so much from the offense's perspective. The team is entering the 2022 season with second-year quarterback Trey Lance under center. Lance's head coach isn't too concerned, though. At least, not yet. He explained why before Monday's practice, the first padded session of training camp. "It's not like I come in and I'm happy about it, but I just don't overreact to them," Kyle Shanahan told reporters. "It's part of camp. You can't block D-linemen without pads on, so I don't like them just sitting there, curling up into a fetal position, and not letting it go. I like to be able to coach

49ers Notebook: Trey Lance assesses first two practices; Ryans praises Lance, Nick Bosa; Richard Sherman predicts 49ers DBs will be 'among the best'

Following the 49ers' practice session on Thursday, quarterback Trey Lance spoke publicly for the first time since June while defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans chatted with reporters about what he's seen so far from his side of the ball -- and from the quarterback his defense has been facing. Lance spoke on a number of topics, including what he thought of his first two days of training camp as the team's starter. Ryans offered his views of Lance, as well as what he's seen from some of the key players in the secondary and on the defensive line. Plus, there was an interesting Twitter quote Thursday from former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expects to see big things from his former defensive teammates this season. Here's a run-down of all of

49ers' Nick Bosa ready to turn training camp health into his best season yet

Given the success he's had in the NFL to this point, it's easy to forget that 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa hasn't been completely healthy heading into a training camp before this season. But, for the first time, Bosa is at 100 percent at this point in the football calendar, and it could translate into his finest season yet as a 49er. Bosa dealt with injuries during his first two training camps with the 49ers after being selected with the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, then spent last offseason rehabbing from a torn ACL that cost him most of the 2020 season. But he still has two Pro Bowl selections in three years under his belt and put in a dynamite performance in 2021, notching 52 tackles, 15.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. There are no injuries

49ers' Nick Bosa thinks Trey Lance has the help he needs to win if he avoids mistakes

The performance of quarterback Trey Lance has been a popular topic of conversation over the first few days of 49ers training camp, but defensive end Nick Bosa thinks the pieces are in place for Lance to succeed as long as he avoids big mistakes. Lance and the other 49ers quarterbacks have thrown their share of interceptions over the past two practices, with Lance completing just 3-of-10 passes on Friday. Lance was encouraged about how the offense bounced back on Thursday, then told CBS Sports he was looking for the same thing on Friday, saying, "I'm kind of more
