Nick Bosa not working at Thursday’s 49ers practice

Rookie defensive end Nick Bosa missed another 49ers practice on Thursday.

Bosa missed most of the summer with an ankle injury and he’s been experiencing soreness since taking part in the 49ers’ Week One victory over the Buccaneers. He sat out practice on Wednesday and reporters at Thursday’s session report that he’s not on the field for this session either.

Bosa had a sack and three quarterback hits during the win over Tampa, which is the kind of production that the Niners hoped to see from the second overall pick. That’s the kind of impact he had at Ohio State, although his final year with the Buckeyes was cut short by a core muscle injury so injury issues are nothing new for Bosa.

Wide receivers Trent Taylor (foot) and Jalen Hurd (back) are also out for the 49ers while defensive back Jimmie Ward (broken finger) is practicing in a non-contact jersey.

Friday will bring injury designations for Sunday’s game against the Bengals.

  1. He had limited reps last week and looked pretty good on Sunday. He was NFL ready when he was drafted so it’s probably best to limit his reps in practice until his ankle is 100%. Andy Dalton will be under a lot of pressure this week. He was sacked 4 times last weekend and the Niners pass rush is more dangerous than Seattle’s.

  2. I thought Bosa was way over-rated when he was drafted, but for a first game as a rookie, he was impressive. He was pressuring on the majority of plays. He would of had a couple of more sacks but Winston is pretty elusive. If he can stay healthy and keep improving, he’s going to be great.

  3. Not encouraging but not over worrying either. I thought he did look good in game action and they have an early bye (week 4) so maybe he can overcome it but likely to be like this for a while.

    EVERYTHING……and I mean everything you just said is a stretch. First, if Bosa doesn’t practice on Friday, you can pretty much chalk it up that he’s out for Sunday. “Limited” & “DNP” are 2 TOTALLY different things. Second, the 49ers pass rush is nowhere near as good as Seattle’s…..and its not close! And 3rd, Andy Dalton is not Jamies Winston. The Bengals are home, Dalton has always taken care of the ball & SF was an extremely offensively challenged club last week. Bengals by 10

  5. He is made of glass. The Niners will regret passing on Williams to take this fragile injury prone lesser player for the next decade.

  6. The Bosa’s are either very injury prone or have a low pain tolerance (for a pro football player)
