49ers-Bengals Injury Report: Nick Bosa, Trent Taylor, Jalen Hurd don’t practice; Jimmie Ward limited with cast

Sep 11, 2019 at 12:59 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. The team remained on the East Coast this week and is practicing in Youngstown, Ohio.

Nick Bosa was noticeably absent at the start of practice. The rookie defensive end made his NFL debut on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and recorded his first career sack as a pro. He was given the day off to further recover from the ankle sprain he suffered early in training camp. It was still sore following Sunday's game, said head coach Kyle Shanahan.

"Anytime you have something like that, usually those injuries, high ankle sprains can linger for a long time," Shanahan said. "When you get in the game, usually you do stuff again, and hopefully he can recover by Sunday."

Wide receivers Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) were also absent. Taylor had surgery to repair his fractured foot on August 9, and Hurd is dealing with a back injury that kept him out of the 49ers' final two preseason games and regular-season opener.

Jimmie Ward (finger), who had surgery last week on his broken finger and was inactive against the Buccaneers, practiced on Wednesday with a blue no-contact jersey and a cast over the finger.

Running back Tevin Coleman, who exited Sunday's game early with an ankle sprain, did not practice and is not expected to do so this week.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Bengals, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Football Outsiders has once again taken a look at the best young players in the league who don't have a lot of playing time. The feature for ESPN casts aside first-round picks and other top prospects, and instead focuses on those who didn't receive a lot of fanfare. "This is a list of players who have a strong chance to make an impact in the NFL despite their lack of draft stock and the fact they weren't immediate NFL starters," wrote Rivers McCown. The list is a top 25 ranking, and two players represent the San Francisco 49ers. The first — 26-year-old offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill — comes in at No. 10. The

Joey Bosa suggests 49ers should start saving money for Nick Bosa's future contract

By David Bonilla

Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers came to terms on a five-year extension worth up to $135 million. The deal includes $102 million in guaranteed money. That's a new record for a defensive player, surpassing Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Bosa's $27 million average annual salary makes him football's highest-paid defender, according to Spotrac. Bosa is excited and grateful to have the deal done. The defender doesn't, however, expect the record amount to stand for very long. Instead, he believes it has merely helped reset the market in the right direction. Bosa even hinted that maybe the San Francisco 49ers should start saving up for a few years down the road

Trent Williams says Nick Bosa will be 'pivotal tool' in knocking off rust

Offensive tackle Trent Williams hasn't played an NFL snap since 2018. He finds himself returning to the game with a new team after a trade sent him from Washington to the San Francisco 49ers. Williams has stayed in shape, though, and identified one tool available to him in his preparation for the 2020 season — new teammate Nick Bosa. Williams considers the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year to be one of the game's best pass rushers and can't wait to go against him in practices. "He's going to be a pivotal tool for me to use to knock the rust off," Williams told reporters on Thursday via a video conference call. "Probably one of the biggest challenges that I can face all year is Nick. I think he's one of the top four or five rushers in
