Nick Bosa, Jason Verrett Undergoing MRIs

11 August 2019

With about 45 minutes left in the practice, Bosa appeared to get tangled up with multiple teammates on a running play off the right side and stayed down on the field after the play ended.

The 21-year-old was selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft and agreed to a 4-year, $33M rookie contract that included a $22M signing bonus.

San Francisco 49ers' defensive Nick Bosa sustained an ankle sprain Wednesday and is expected to the preseason, general manager John Lynch said Thursday morning. He doesn't have a full-blown one, but it has some components of that.

The Niners invested $3.6 million in Verrett and will hope he will be ready to play at some point early in the season, if not by Week 1.

Shanahan said the goal is to have Bosa available for the 49ers' regular-season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the team will be smart with the rookie's recovery.

After his injury scare in practice on Wednesday, most fans feared for the worst.

On top of Bosa going down, other key players such as Jason Verrett, K'Waun Williams, and the aforementioned Ford and McKinnon have all suffered injuries that will likely force them to miss time - at least in the preseason. Bosa also suffered a torn ACL in high school. "But he had an over 300-pound man land on his leg and it was very fortunate that we didn't lose him for the year". He missed most of last season with the Buckeyes due to a core muscle injury. [Wednesday], he had a big human being fall on his leg while he was engaged with someone else. Nick Bosa, the accomplished edge rusher from Ohio State, was viewed by most draft analysts as the best all-around football player in the class; landing him at the second pick was a boon for San Francisco.
