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.

The San Francisco 49ers defense should be much improved with the returns of edge rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both are coming off significant injuries, missing most of last season. Ford appeared in just one game before a back injury sidelined him. Bosa's 2020 campaign ended with an ACL injury during Week 2. Earlier this week, Ford said he expects to be on a pitch count during Sunday's regular-season opener against the Detroit Lions. That's not uncommon for players coming off an injury, and the veteran pass rusher hasn't been an every-down player during his time with the 49ers, even when he was healthier. Instead, Ford mostly went onto the field during situational downs,

It has been a rigorous offseason for San Francisco 49ers pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford. Both exited last season early due to injuries. First, a back injury sidelined Ford after Week 1. Then, during Week 2, Bosa exited after suffering a torn ACL on that awful MetLife Stadium field. What followed were two hellacious comebacks. But, the good news is that the end is in sight. Bosa and Ford will retake the field when the Niners open their season against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field on Sunday. Bosa showed off videos during his rehab, and the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year looked ahead of schedule during the process. Bosa's coaches never questioned the defensive end's work ethic. They know the pass rusher can accomplish whatever he sets his mind

He's worked extremely hard, and I'm very proud of the work he's put in
