49ers excited about what they see from DE Nick Bosa as camp begins

Jul 27, 2021 at 12:08 PM--

Nick Bosa will soon go through his first practices with the San Francisco 49ers since tearing his ACL last September, but if his offseason workouts are any indication, he appears to be ready to go.

Bosa's 2020 season came to an end due to the injury, which took place against the New York Jets on September 20. He's been working on rehabbing the injury since then and has made it a point over the past few months to share videos on his progress, both in a public capacity and in private with the 49ers.

"The coolest thing with Nick is he's pretty good with documenting his workouts and sending them our way," 49ers general manager John Lynch said during a media session on Tuesday. "So even though he hasn't been here the entire time -- he's been here sporadically, he'd come out for a week or so -- you always get to see videos."

Lynch went into some detail about Bosa's videos on Tuesday, saying Bosa has been showing encouraging improvement throughout the offseason.

"He doesn't put them all on Instagram," Lynch said. "He sends us some ones, but they're always exciting just because you got to see his progress. He keeps getting better, so that's a good sign for us."

If Bosa isn't ready to play to start the season, it won't be from lack of trying. Lynch raved about the effort he saw from Bosa during his videos, saying the regimen Bosa put together was remarkable to see.

"You never have to question his work ethic. It is a special routine he has developed," Lynch said. "It's fun to watch a guy like that work. We've got a lot of respect and admiration, not only for player, but you get to see what goes into making that player, and it's a lot of hard work."

The 49ers will get a good look at Bosa in action once training camp begins Wednesday. Bosa met with head coach Kyle Shanahan on Monday, then will be back on the field Wednesday and will take the next step towards being ready for the season.

"Looked great in person. Saw him yesterday," Shanahan told reporters Tuesday. "We got to talk to him (for) about a half hour, just catch up. He feels good. Obviously we're going to ease him in and stuff and we're going to see him move a little bit tomorrow for the first time in person, but (he) looked great and it felt a lot better having him back in the building."

George Kittle, Nick Bosa 'confident' and 'excited' about 49ers outlook as season begins

After a long offseason, training camp and preseason to follow up everything that they went through in 2020, it's safe to say the San Francisco 49ers are itching to get their 2021 regular season underway this Sunday against the Detroit Lions (1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT). And based on what tight end George Kittle and defensive end Nick Bosa said after practice on Thursday, it sounds like the 49ers will be heading into this weekend's opener at Ford Field in Detroit with momentum at their backs after six successful weeks of preparation. Last season saw the 49ers' hopes of defending their 2019 NFC Championship go up in smoke after being decimated by a seemingly never-ending string of significant injuries. Then, to add insult to injury, the 49ers were forced to spend the

For those who may have doubted, George Kittle has repeatedly said that his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Nick Bosa, is pretty good at football. Unfortunately, fans didn't see much of the defensive end in his second NFL season, as his sophomore campaign was cut short by an ACL injury. While injury after injury followed Bosa's, the loss of the 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year was greatly felt throughout the roster. San Francisco finished with just six wins after entering the season with Super Bowl aspirations. NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and was asked which 49ers player he is most excited to see on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. He answered before the question could be finished. "Bosa!" Baldinger quickly

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

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,
