49ers D-linemen Nick Bosa, Solomon Thomas carted off with injuries vs. Jets

Sep 20, 2020 at 10:33 AM--

The seemingly neverending injury news got worse in a hurry for the San Francisco 49ers against the New York Jets on Sunday as defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas were carted off the field in the first quarter due to a knee injury.

Bosa went down with the injury after a first down run from Jets running back Frank Gore. Bosa was visibly in pain on the turf before trainers carted him to the locker room.

Two plays later, the 49ers lost Thomas after getting tangled up with Jets offensive lineman George Fant.

Both players were quickly ruled out of the game shortly after leaving the field.

Bosa, 22, was selected by the 49ers as the second overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and became one of the league's top defensive players during his rookie season. Bosa totaled 42 tackles and nine sacks as a rookie and won the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year award as well as a spot in the 2019 Pro Bowl.

Thomas, 25, is in his fourth season with the 49ers after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. After totaling 81 tackles and six sacks over his first three seasons, Thomas headed into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract hoping 2020 would finally be the breakout season he and the 49ers have been waiting for since 2017.

The 49ers were already down two defensive linemen with Dee Ford out due to a neck injury and Ronald Blair on the physically unable to perform list as he continues his recovery from a torn ACL that ended his 2019 season. The team has shown interest in free agent defensive end Ezekiel Ansah but the two sides have not come to terms on a contract.

The 49ers were also playing Sunday without cornerback Richard Sherman (calf), wide receiver Deebo Samuel (foot), and tight end George Kittle (knee).

There was a report last week from ESPN's Adam Schefter that San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa sustained some "cartilage damage in his left knee" in addition to the torn ACL suffered during Week 2 against the New York Jets. Head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't always have the specifics surrounding player injuries and will be quick to remind reporters that he is not a doctor. What he does know, however, is that the knee surgeries for both Bosa and Solomon Thomas, who also suffered a torn ACL in the same game, went smoothly. "I know that it was an ACL. That was the main thing," Shanahan told reporters via Zoom on Wednesday. "I know there was some other

The outlook for the 2020 San Francisco 49ers changed dramatically when second-year defensive end Nick Bosa went down with a torn ACL during Week 2 against the New York Jets. That's how good Bosa is. He is a game-changer on the edge of the once-formidable Niners defensive line that has also lost Solomon Thomas for the year to a torn ACL, and veteran Dee Ford is out indefinitely with a back injury. Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers told reporters on Wednesday that his younger brother, Nick, is staying with him and his parents during his rehab. "It's nice having them around," Joey Bosa said. "They're keeping the place [tidy] for me and food constantly running. I can't
