49ers’ Nick Bosa hopes his ankle will be an afterthought after the bye week

Sep 25, 2019 at 9:43 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers' Week 4 bye can be viewed a couple of ways. Either it is too early and could kill any momentum the team has built during its 3-0 start, or it comes at a perfect time and allows the team to work back some of its injured players, like running back Tevin Coleman and wide receiver Jalen Hurd.

One other player will benefit from the much-needed rest — Nick Bosa. The rookie defensive end joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and discussed what the early bye week means for him and his ankle.

Bosa acknowledges that since this is his first NFL season, he doesn't really know any different when it comes to bye-week scheduling because he's never gone through a full 16-game season. He suffered an ankle sprain early in training camp and missed the entire preseason but has appeared in each of the 49ers' three regular-season games.

"I'm definitely going to take full advantage of this time off, and hopefully, my ankle will be an afterthought after this week," Bosa told Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky.

Bosa says the ankle injury was frustrating because he missed most of OTAs with a hamstring injury, felt good at the start of training camp, and was ready to go until the injury occurred during practice.

"After that, I was so focused on getting back that Week 1 was a goal that I set, and I was getting in no matter what," Bosa continued. "It's obviously something that nags a little bit, and you feel it out there, but I've been able to push through it and help the team, and we're 3-and-0, so it worked out well."

Bosa also discussed what he has learned from his 49ers teammates during his first NFL season, the decision to end his Ohio State college career, living in California, and more.

The next inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame sat down with Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area for the latest episode of the 49ers Insider Podcast. Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching. And then just his family history. His dad played, his brother played, and so

Those are the six teams that gave up on him before he signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. "Always there (on my phone)," Mostert recently told Jordan Schultz of ESPN.
