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,



49ers' Nick Bosa excited by Trey Lance's progress, believes Brandon Aiyuk will 'come alive'

Trey Lance entered the NFL without a whole lot of collegiate experience under his belt. He started only one full season for the North Dakota State Bison. He joined the San Francisco 49ers with a lot to learn, and the plan has always been to start Jimmy Garoppolo during the regular season, allowing Lance the time needed to absorb the offense. The most anyone expected from Lance was to see the quarterback sprinkled into the offensive game plan from week to week. However, an injury to Garoppolo thrust the rookie into the starting lineup during Week 5. Nick Bosa joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and was asked about the team's young quarterback. How much growth has the pass rusher seen from Lance since the 21-year-old first joined the squad? "He's come a



49ers' Nick Bosa believes he and Arik Armstead are dominant in this category

Most analysts already view Nick Bosa as one of the best pass rushers in the NFL. He racked up nine regular-season sacks as a rookie and added four more in the playoffs. This year, he leads the San Francisco 49ers with five sacks. While the accolades have come due to Bosa's ability to frustrate opposing quarterbacks, the talented defensive end believes he and a teammate might actually be vastly underrated when it comes to another category. Bosa has proven himself to be a great overall player, remaining in the game during run plays. He ranks fifth against the run among edge rushers with over 55 snaps, per Pro Football Focus' grading system. "I love the run game because it just gets me going in the game," Bosa said after today's practice. "And if the
