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.

49ers players comment on officiating in Seahawks loss: 'We've got to leave it out of the referees' hands'

It was a frustrating day on many fronts for the San Francisco 49ers during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, and the officiating during the game didn't exactly help. The 49ers were flagged 10 times for 86 yards during the game, with more than one of those penalties coming at a crucial time. There was also one key moment in particular where some observers felt there should have been a penalty on the Seahawks that wasn't called -- a play towards the end of the regulation when the 49ers were attempting to tie the game with a touchdown while Seahawks cornerback Sidney Jones was getting handsy with wide receiver Trent



Watch out NFL: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers' Nick Bosa is 'getting better each week'

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa racked up nine sacks during his NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign in 2019. He has already surpassed that mark through 10 games this season. Bosa's 10 sacks are tied for the fifth-most in the NFL. Imagine the number he could have amassed if he wasn't being held so often by blockers doing whatever they can to prevent the dominating defender from getting to their quarterbacks. On Sunday, you saw it with Jacksonville's Jawaan Taylor holding onto Bosa, who still managed to reach rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. "The reason why [he's being held so often] is he's so good and so fast at taking that inside move,"

Voting for the upcoming Pro Bowl has been underway for a while now. The NFL released some stats on the leading vote-getters so far. Two San Francisco 49ers currently lead their respective positions. Kyle Juszczyk leads all fullbacks with 70,362 fan votes. Nick Bosa leads NFC defensive ends with 68,143 votes. Juszczyk, a nine-year veteran, has been named to the last five Pro Bowls, with the first coming in 2016. He is widely considered to be the best fullback in the NFL. Although, his 62.5 overall Pro Football Focus grade this season is his lowest mark since his rookie campaign. Bosa is proving to be even more dominant than he was in his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. He has already surpassed his rookie sack total of nine with a

If you ask Nick Bosa, he'll tell you that he's even better than he was before his devastating ACL injury last season. The San Francisco 49ers pass rusher is proving it this season. He has already surpassed his previous career-high nine sacks during his 2019 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year campaign. Bosa's 10 sacks this season are tied for the fifth-most in the league, and the 49ers defender is the only player with 10-or-more sacks and 15 tackles for a loss. "I think I've definitely improved a lot," Bosa said on Sunday. "I think I'm starting to get the hang of just how to really get sacks, get numbers. My rookie year, I was just out there rushing, trying to win every time. It worked
