49ers-Buccaneers: Nick Bosa absent from third consecutive practice but is seen in weight room

Dec 9, 2022 at 12:49 PM--

It was a bit concerning that San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday after emerging from Week 13's win over the Miami Dolphins with what head coach Kyle Shanahan described as hamstring irritation.

On Friday, the 49ers held their third and final practice of the week, and Bosa was not on the field with his teammates.

The situation leaves many wondering if the NFL's current sack leader will be on the field, chasing after quarterback Tom Brady, when the team hosts the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Levi's Stadium on Sunday.

The good news is that Bosa was seen on Friday. Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group noted that the defensive end was working out in the weight room and showed "no hindrance of hamstring (no wrap or limp)" as he walked around.

Brady (maybe) jokingly posted a message to Bosa ahead of this weekend's matchup. "Be nice Sunday," the future Hall of Famer said via Instagram, hoping not to get on the pass rusher's wrong side.

Bosa has racked up 14.5 sacks this season, recording three this past weekend against the Dolphins. He also has 36 tackles, 15 tackles for a loss, 34 quarterback hits, and a forced fumble through his 11 game appearances this season. Bosa's 62 pressures are second only to Za'Darius Smith of the Minnesota Vikings, who has 64.

Bosa's defensive grade of 89.9 from Pro Football Focus is a career-high, and his 88.4 pass-rush grade is his second-highest ever (90.0 in 2021).

The 49ers will reveal the game statuses for injured players after practice.

Nick Bosa wants to remain with 49ers, 'not necessarily' seeking to be NFL's highest-paid defender

Nick Bosa is the next San Francisco 49ers player in line to receive a big-time contract extension. Most expect the NFL Defensive Player of the Year frontrunner to become the NFL's highest-paid defender. But is that the talented pass rusher's goal? "Not necessarily," Bosa responded when asked that question on Tuesday. "We'll just see where it goes." One of his top priorities is remaining with the 49ers, the team that made him the No. 2 overall pick in 2019. "I'd love to be here, for sure," Bosa said. "This is a great organization. They treat you as good as [anyone] can. I have amazing relationships here, so hopefully [I stay], yeah." The defender isn't sweating the situation right now. He trusts the two sides will come to a mutually
