Nick Bosa vows to ‘be better’ in return from ACL injury

Feb 23, 2021 at 6:13 AM--


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."


That is certainly encouraging. The only real update we've had on Bosa are rehab videos posted by Motus Specialists Physical Therapy on social media.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said in December that he was optimistic about Bosa's recovery.

"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," Shanahan told reporters.

The surgeon who repaired the damage — Dr. Neal ElAttrache — in the knees of both Bosa and teammate Solomon Thomas, who suffered an ACL injury two plays after Bosa, was also optimistic about both players' progress.

"They weren't just straight-forward, isolated ACL injuries," ElAttrache told The Athletic earlier this month. "These were bigger injuries. But they're both ahead of where ordinarily we'd expect them to be. And so they're both going through their initial stages of functional performance training. So it's looking very promising for both of those guys."

A fan asked Anderson if a player has ever had a "monster" season coming off a serious knee injury. She pointed back to a future Hall-of-Fame running back who was named the league MVP a year after suffering a torn ACL and MCL — Adrian Peterson.

"So yes, Nick Bosa can absolutely do it," responded Anderson. "But much like Peterson, it will depend upon the quality of Bosa'a rehab program and prayerfully staying healthy next season. He has the will."

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



Patrick Willis: 49ers can return to glory by focusing on defense this offseason

Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, one of the best to play the position, recently spoke with Fox News and shared his thoughts on what the Niners' offseason focus should be. San Francisco was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago. It followed up the impressive run with a six-win campaign in 2020. The 49ers hope to rebound in 2021, and that will start with the upcoming draft. San Francisco owns the No. 12 overall pick. While some feel that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch might try to target a rookie quarterback, Willis believes his former team can return to glory by focusing on defense this offseason. That starts with adding a pass rusher to line up opposite the team's young star, defensive end Nick



49ers, Kyle Juszczyk had 'pleasant' talks about a potential return, await salary-cap clarification

By David Bonilla

Kyle Juszczyk's course remains set for free agency. The San Francisco 49ers hope to retain their highly-valued fullback. That might be difficult given the upcoming salary-cap constraints due to the pandemic's impact on the 2020 season. The 49ers have several impending free agents they would like to bring back. Juszczyk has been such a fixture within head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense over the past four years that it's difficult to imagine it without him. Juszczyk is already the highest-paid fullback by a significant margin, which isn't likely to change with his next contract. Shanahan may look to rework his offense to be less dependent on a dominant fullback like Juszczyk. However, ideally, Juszczyk would stay put. Josina Anderson, the host of the Undefined
