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.

Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus created a list of the top 25 players under 25 years old, and two young defenders represent the San Francisco 49ers. All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner (age 24) tops the ranking at No. 1 overall. "At a position that has become ever-more difficult to play, given how good NFL offenses have become at attacking defensive weaknesses, Warner has become arguably the game's best linebacker," wrote Monson. "The former third-round pick earned a PFF coverage grade of 91.1 in 2020, allowing a passer rating of just 81.9 into his coverage, some 25 points lower than the average at the position." San Francisco made Warner a third-round selection out of BYU in

San Francisco 49ers defenders Nick Bosa and Fred Warner were recently named to Pro Football Focus' top 25 players under the age of 25. Now, both have been named to's "2021 All-Under-25 Team," compiled by Nick Shook. Bosa is coming off a season that saw the young defensive end miss 14 games. He suffered a torn ACL during Week 2, landing on injured reserve. "Like Saquon Barkley (who did not make the honorary roster), Bosa missed all but two games of the 2020 season with an ACL tear," wrote Shook, "but his Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign and sky-high potential still stand as a stronger case than others considered (i.e., Brian Burns).

Pro Football Focus is counting down its list of the 50 best players in the NFL right now and has revealed Nos. 21 through 30. Defensive end Nick Bosa and offensive tackle Trent Williams have become the first San Francisco 49ers players to appear on the list, coming in at Nos. 27 and 24, respectively. It's important to note that the ranking is a projection of the top players for the upcoming season and not simply based on past performance, as many Pro Football Focus rankings are. Also, no single position is viewed as more valuable than another in deciding the ranking order. That means a safety is on equal footing with a quarterback. Bosa has only one full NFL season on

The San Francisco 49ers suffered many injuries to key players last season. One of the most impactful — at least on defense — was the loss of pass rusher Nick Bosa during Week 2. The young defensive end was coming off his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign when he suffered a torn ACL and was lost for the year. Joe Staley joined NFL Total Access and was asked what the return of Bosa means to San Francisco's defense. His response shows how quickly the pass rusher was able to earn the respect of his veteran teammates during his first NFL season. "From day one, I never saw a rookie come in and totally transform a defense like Nick Bosa did for us in my last year there,"
