49ers’ Nick Bosa fine after Cardinals player fell on his arm, humorously avoids criticizing officiating

Oct 11, 2021 at 12:56 PM--


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, though.


Bosa was asked about the injury after the game, and the defender assured everyone that he was fine.

"It's just [Murray] fell on my arm, but it's all good," Bosa shared with reporters. "Just sore."

Was that a scary moment for the pass rusher, perhaps thinking the injury may have been more serious?

"No. It hurt, but it's all good," Bosa responded. "Yeah, it's all good."

There was one controversial play in the game where it looked as though the Cardinals committed offensive holding in the end zone. By rule, if that was the case, it should have resulted in a safety for the 49ers. Matt Barrows of The Athletic asked Bosa if he and his teammates thought that should have been the call.


"Isn't that the rule?" Bosa asked.

"I think so," responded Barrows

Much to the amusement of reporters in the room, Bosa nodded and said, "I'm not getting fined."

The officials seemed to believe that the hold of Arik Armstead started outside of the end zone, though, which would not result in a safety. Obviously, Bosa questions that but is smart enough not to criticize the officiating publicly.

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.

49ers-Cardinals: Players, coaches praise Trey Lance after first NFL start

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today, one day after the team's Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Opening comments: "The injuries from the game. [LB] Marcell Harris had a right thumb fracture somewhere in the game, not sure where. He's going to have surgery tomorrow. Should be good to go after the Bye Week, but we'll have more details after the surgery. And then [QB] Trey Lance ended up having a left knee sprain. We'll re-evaluate him at the end of the week to determine his status for next week. Really won't know whether he's got a chance versus Indy until next week, but he's got a



Jimmie Ward on 49ers rookie Deommodore Lenoir: 'He's going to be a great player in this league'

By David Bonilla

Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir may end up being one of the best value picks from the San Francisco 49ers' most recent draft class. He was a fifth-round draft pick, and the Niners tend to find gold in that round. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. D.J. Reed may not be on the team anymore but is proving to be a good player for the Seattle Seahawks. He was a 49ers fifth-round pick in 2018. In 2017, San Francisco drafted some little-known tight end out of Iowa named George Kittle. He's not bad either. Could Lenoir be the team's next fifth-round gem? The rookie's teammate, safety Jimmie Ward, joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. The discussion eventually led to Lenoir and the young defensive back's early dividends. The
