Video shows 49ers DE Nick Bosa’s rehab progress

Jan 11, 2021 at 5:02 PM--


Things seemingly fell apart for the San Francisco 49ers during Week 2 of the 2020 season, when the team lost several players to injuries. That includes the season-ending ACL injury suffered by second-year defensive end Nick Bosa.

"The second week of the year, we didn't have the same team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said, heading into Week 17. "I think we had a pretty unprecedented amount of injuries by Week 2. And then I thought that was rock-bottom, and it wasn't. It was the starting of about 30 other bad things that kept happening, all the way to getting kicked out of our homes by our county to come out here for a month."

Last week, general manager John Lynch expressed confidence that Bosa is progressing well during his rehab away from the 49ers.

"Bosa's doing great in his recovery," Lynch told reporters. "He had a significant injury to his knee, but like everything in life, he attacks it head-on, 100 percent. The only thing with him is pulling him back, so he's not doing too much.

"We've kept in good contact with Nick, with the people who he's training with. With COVID, we felt like it was best to get him out of the building. He went down to Orange County. He's been down there working with some great people and really making tremendous progress. We're very pleased with where he's at."

Bosa was a key contributor to the 49ers' 2019 run toward a Super Bowl appearance. His nine regular-season sacks and four postseason sacks were part of an impressive rookie campaign that earned him NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Without Bosa, and while enduring an insurmountable number of injuries, the 49ers finished the 2020 season with just six wins, missing the playoffs for the third time in Shanahan and Lynch's four seasons running the team.

Said Shanahan: "I have every reason to believe, Nick Bosa, the way he works, the way his body is made, he'll be the exact same guy next year."

Simms can't envision a 49ers trade scenario involving Nick Bosa

Chris Simms conducted an ask-me-anything version of his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned, and spent a good deal of time discussing quarterback Deshaun Watson and his situation with the Houston Texans. Watson wants out, but the Texans want to repair the estranged relationship. There would be high demand if Watson were actually able to force a trade. His no-trade clause means that he would have a lot of say in any potential destination. It's not a stretch to believe that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might be intrigued by the possibility of adding a talent like Watson to his offense. Of course, there is no urgency on the part of the 49ers, as they have made it clear they are pleased to move forward with Jimmy Garoppolo. San Francisco has

Defensive end Nick Bosa is in Florida working out and rehabbing from the ACL injury he sustained at MetLife Stadium during Week 2 this past season. The former No. 2 overall pick recently had a brief conversation with former ESPN reporter Josina Anderson and provided an update on his recovery. "You'll see my progress on the field next [season]," Bosa told Anderson via a phone conversation. "Tell them I'm gonna be better."

Sports Business Journal recently reported that Disney and the NFL reached an agreement on a new media rights deal that will renew Monday Night Football and return ABC to the Super Bowl rotation of broadcast networks in the coming years. It looks like there might be an even bigger shake-up in the works. This past season, the Week 16 broadcast between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals was exclusively on Amazon Prime Video, and the experience received mixed reviews. It was also made available for free on Twitch, giving viewers an additional option in finding a way to watch the game. However, those were the only options for fans outside the Bay Area, where a



Orlovsky believes 49ers become Super Bowl contenders with Carson Wentz

By David Bonilla

There is no indication that the San Francisco 49ers are serious about Carson Wentz. There was a report that the team inquired about the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, but that may have just been general manager John Lynch and company doing their due diligence. It's always worth knowing the going rate for a former starting NFL quarterback, after all. Wentz isn't a fan-favorite trade candidate either. He was one of the worst quarterbacks in the league last season. His 65.0 overall Pro Football Focus grade was a career-low. One ESPN analyst feels Wentz paired with the 49ers could be a game-changer, though. Former quarterback Dan Orlovsky recently said that the Eagles passer with the Indianapolis Colts or San Francisco would make either team a Super Bowl
