Kerry Hyder honors injured 49ers teammate Nick Bosa with sack celebration

Sep 27, 2020 at 2:22 PM--

Defensive lineman Kerry Hyder reached quarterback Daniel Jones during the third quarter of the San Francisco 49ers' 36-9 victory over the New York Giants. After the play, the seventh-year veteran paid tribute to his teammate, Nick Bosa, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury last weekend.

"I just wanted him to know that we're always thinking about him, and he's always on our minds," Hyder said after the game. "We're playing for him. I know he's watching us, and we wanted to make sure that he saw that we were playing hard and that we love him."

Hyder is one of the many defensive linemen who are stepping up to fill the void after both Bosa and Solomon Thomas (ACL) were lost for the season. Hyder got to Jones once while Dion Jordan brought down the quarterback, too.

The 49ers worked hard while remaining on the East Coast this past week between their two games at MetLife Stadium.

"I feel like, as a group, we always prepare well," Hyder said. "Coach does a great job preparing everyone like they're going to start, so nothing really changed in our preparation. We attack each day, and we try to get better each day. We feel like if we have good practices during the week, that it will carry over to the game."

The 49ers will return to the West Coast to begin preparing for their Week 4 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles and hope their win streak, now at two games, continues.

Kerry Hyder has been a pleasant surprise on a San Francisco 49ers defensive line that has been decimated by injuries this season.

Hyder's overall Pro Football Focus grade of 70.8 is a career-high, and the analytics site credits the defender with 21 total pressures in 134 pass-rush attempts. He owns a pass-rushing-productivity grade of 9.9, which ranks as the fourth-best among NFL edge rushers. The only edge defenders who have made more of an impact rushing quarterbacks are Aldon Smith of the Dallas Cowboys (10.7 grade), T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers (10.4), and Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns (10.1),

Kerry Hyder Jr. joined the San Francisco 49ers this offseason just looking to contribute, do whatever was asked of him, and rejoin his former defensive line coach, Kris Kocurek. He's watched as the team lost Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the year. Reinforcements like Dee Ford, Ronald Blair, and Jullian Taylor aren't expected to be back until later in the season. Until then, Hyder, and those who remain, will be entrusted to hold down the fort. Another player looking to do the same thing is rookie Javon Kinlaw, who has displayed flashes of his potential while adjusting to life in the NFL. Hyder, now in his seventh season, was asked about his first-year teammate this week, his development, and his future. "He's a hungry player,"
