49ers’ Nick Bosa feels ‘great’ since returning to action

Sep 16, 2021 at 2:13 PM--


Last Sunday was Nick Bosa's first time back on the field for a regular season game since tearing his ACL in the second week of last season. The San Francisco 49ers star defender finished the game with four tackles (including three tackles for loss), one sack and two quarterback hits in the team's win over the Detroit Lions.

Asked Thursday how he felt about his first game back from injury, Bosa responded, "It was nice just to get back out there, get 50 plays on turf, and feel great. So, I'm ecstatic about that, and just being back with the guys, and knowing that my body's ready for a season. I'm going to fix whatever issues, technically, I had and improve."

That Bosa was able to be on the field for 50 plays is more than what the team could have hope for. That he feels great is excellent news for the 49ers, especially in the days following his 50-play performance.

Bosa was asked if he felt more sore than usual on Monday and Tuesday. Said Bosa, "I was sore, for sure, but it wasn't much different."

And just what are some of the things the second-year player feels he needs to work on?

"Just technically, I have things that I need to get better at. Just getting off the ball and all the things that come with just reps. But physically, I'm there and feeling good."

The 49ers are currently in West Virginia, preparing to play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

After suffering an ACL injury in a Week 2 victory against the New York Jets in 2020, Nick Bosa has returned to the field, and has arguably looked even better. Bosa, who's accumulated four sacks on the season to go with 14 tackles, 13 pressures, and a forced fumble, has been the driving force on a 49ers defense alongside fellow edge rusher Dee Ford.

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,



Fred Warner, Nick Bosa have confidence in team's mentality and approach after tough loss

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



49ers QB Trey Lance assesses his first extended NFL regular season action as 'good and bad'

The results were mixed for 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance after being unexpectedly called upon to play the entire second half during a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Lance was inserted into the game to start the second half after it became apparent during halftime that starter Jimmy Garoppolo wouldn't be able to take the field due to an assumed calf injury he sustained early in the game. Lance finished the game with 157 yards and two touchdowns on 9-of-18 passing while rushing for 41 yards on seven carries, but was unable to dig the 49ers out of the hole they found themselves in after the Seahawks scored two quick touchdowns early in the second half. The appearance marked the first extended action of the regular season for Lance, who had
