Bonus Bosa brothers time: 49ers, Chargers to hold joint practices before preseason game

Jun 3, 2021 at 5:47 AM--


Defensive end Nick Bosa is not with his San Francisco 49ers teammates during organized team activities (OTAs). He is in Florida, rehabbing and training for the upcoming season with his older brother, Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers.

The brothers will have another opportunity to spend time together after the preseason kicks off in August. The 49ers and Chargers are scheduled to meet in Southern California for a preseason game on August 22. According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, the two teams will use the opportunity to hold joint practices leading to that matchup.


"Coaches Kyle Shanahan and Brandon Staley, the first-year coach of the Chargers, are still working out the details of the practice sessions, the source said," adds Maiocco in a report.

The matchup with the Chargers is the second of three exhibition games for the 49ers, sandwiched between games at Levi's Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs on August 14 and the Las Vegas Raiders on August 29.

The 49ers and Broncos held joint practices before their preseason game in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic eliminated last season's joint practices and preseason schedule.

The Bosa brothers regularly train together during the offseason, and Shanahan has no problem with his Bosa remaining in Florida until the defender is required to return.

"He came out in February for a while to get checked up on his knee and stuff," Shanahan said last week. "And with him coming off the ACL and everything, it's going great. I'm sure you guys have seen some videos. But he's got a good setup out there with his brother and the guy who works with his knee. They're in contact with our guys all the time.

"I just didn't want to take him off his routine right now. I totally agree with him (being) out there. He's going to show up at some time during this, but he won't be going out there, doing anything coming off the ACL, but we fully expect him to be ready for training camp."

The San Francisco 49ers have gone through five practices in training camp. Today's will be the first padded session, so expect things to get a little more physical. Head coach Kyle Shanahan insists there is no quarterback competition brewing in Santa Clara. Jimmy Garoppolo is still slated to be the starter come Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. "What I told Jimmy right when we made the trade is, 'I don't know any rookie who can come and beat you out if you're playing at his best self,'" Shanahan told Peter King last week. The 49ers drafted Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. The rookie is the quarterback of the future,

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan regretted not having a rookie player fire up the crowd during the first training camp practice this week. The team has tasked a rookie with doing so in previous years. Obviously, not last year, as no fans were in the stands for practices. "We usually do a rookie hype machine, and I feel like I didn't see it out there today," Shanahan told reporters yesterday. "So I was kind of disappointed with that. I'll get that corrected later today, but it was definitely different (seeing fans again). And I'm so pumped to see it in the stadium." Shanahan did get it corrected. Rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the 49ers' first-round pick, was the one out there getting fans fired up before today's practice — the

There's a lot of excitement surrounding Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers. Fans and the media have been wowed by his training camp performances, bringing the timetable for his readiness to take over the starting role into question. Many of the questions directed at head coach Kyle Shanahan on Tuesday dealt with his 21-year-old quarterback. Even starter Jimmy Garoppolo was asked multiple times about his eventual successor. A lot of the focus is on Lance, and that won't change any time soon. "This guy's got some balls," an excited Deebo Samuel told his coach of Lance last week. "Trey Lance, he's a baller, man," new
