Good news for 49ers Faithful: Trent Williams says Nick Bosa got better

Aug 27, 2021 at 3:07 PM--

Following Friday's walk-through, San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams sat down to answer some questions from the media. Among the questions were a few regarding defensive star Nick Bosa, who is returning from a knee injury that cost him most of the 2020 season. Williams had a lot to say about his teammate.

Asked how Bosa has looked since returning from injury, Williams answered, "Nick has been outstanding. I don't know how he could've gotten stronger, but he did. You know, very few people come back from a major injury and are better...I played Nick before he left, and I played him when he got back, and he's better. It's definitely good news for the Faithful."

Williams discussed how Bosa has gotten even better physically, but it's the mental side that Williams seems especially impressed with. "Nick is a very sharp guy. It's all between his ears. He's just blessed with the ability and having the body to do so, but it's all between his ears. He definitely got stronger, you can definitely feel his play strength; you can feel that off the bat. But honestly, I think he's just such a smart guy...I feel like he came back with a recipe of moves just for me," said Williams.

He continued saying how it's exciting to see a player come back, especially considering all that Bosa went through, and still be a better player than he was. "I think that's outstanding," said Williams.

Asked how much facing Bosa helps him prepare, Williams said, "He definitely fast-tracks the development; he knocks the rust off really quick...you know you just gotta be on your toes with him, all the time, every single play, literally not a play off. He finds a way to be effective on plays that he's not even supposed to be near the ball."

Bosa is not likely to play in the 49ers final preseason game, but should be ready for the first game of the regular season, in Detroit.

Watching Nick Bosa test his arm and wrist on the sideline had to be a scary moment for San Francisco 49ers fans. Bosa missed most of last season after suffering a torn ACL. The last thing anyone wants to see is the talented pass rusher miss more time this season. San Francisco is 2-3 and hopes to rebound after the bye week from its three consecutive losses. The team needs Bosa down the stretch if it hopes to turn things around. The third-year defender briefly left the game after sacking Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray on Sunday. Fans watching the broadcast saw Bosa nursing his right arm as he headed off the field. The defensive end returned to the game,

Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks felt like somewhat of a demoralizing one for the San Francisco 49ers, but two of the team's defensive standouts -- defensive end Nick Bosa and linebacker Fred Warner --expect to see their teammates carry a positive mentality forward as the challenges in their schedule continue. The 49ers were in control of the game for most of the first half but the Seahawks managed to lock themselves in a 7-7 tie with the 49ers at halftime. The Seahawks then took control in the second half, building a 28-13 lead before holding on late to come out of Levi's Stadium with a win. The loss was the second consecutive home defeat for the 49ers, who now sit at 2-2 on the season after a last-second loss to the Green Bay Packers last
