49ers’ Nick Bosa fined $28,075 for hit on Vikings’ Brian O’Neill

Jan 18, 2020 at 2:00 PM--


The illegal block by San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa on Minnesota Vikings tackle Brian O'Neill following cornerback Richard Sherman's interception of Kirk Cousins ended up costing the rookie. The NFL has fined Bosa $28,075 for the hit, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.


Vikings players called Bosa's hit a "cheap shot."

"I didn't see the hit," Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said of the play when asked about it after the game. "I just heard (from players that) it was just a cheap shot, which I think it was."

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about the accusations by the Vikings who felt the hit was uncalled for and deliberate.

"I think people say 'cheap shot' when someone gets hit violently," Shanahan responded. "To me, the word 'cheap shot' means your intent is to try to hurt someone. I don't think he's thinking about that at all.

"I mean, that's a normal block in football, for a long time. The guy wasn't completely out of the play. He was a guy who could have made the tackle, and Bosa went and hit him.

I mean, you can't do that now. You can't hit a guy in that position. You've basically got to set a screen, which means let him hit you, and just take it. That's part of this game, and that's what you've got to do, and that's what we'll coach him up on because you will get a penalty for that."

Nick Bosa has the potential to be a force along the San Francisco 49ers defensive line for years to come. The young pass rusher was as good as advertised during his first NFL season, a campaign that earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. The 49ers' all-time sack leader, Bryant Young, loves what he sees in Bosa. Young joined KNBR on Thursday to discuss his impending induction into the 49ers Hall of Fame and offered up a scouting report of the second-year defender.
