Bosa is slated to have surgery on his torn left ACL and associated cartilage damage this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Bosa was one of a number of 49ers to suffer injuries of varying severity last Sunday against the Jets, but only his and Solomon Thomas' (torn ACL) were season-enders. Once the procedure is complete, the 49ers likely will have a better idea of his recovery timeline, but they are hopeful Bosa will be healthy by Week 1 of the 2021 campaign. For the rest of this season, though, the team's pass rush will be led by Arik Armstead, Dee Ford (back), Kerry Hyder, Dion Jordan and Ezekiel Ansah.
The 49ers placed Bosa (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday. Bosa tore the ACL in his left knee during the 49ers' Week 2 win over the Jets and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season as a result. With the 2019 No. 2 overall pick sidelined, the likes of Kerry Hyder, Dee Ford (back) and newcomer Ezekiel Ansah are options to help fill the resulting void at defensive end opposite Arik Armstead.
Bosa officially suffered a torn ACL in his left knee Sunday against the Jets, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Bosa was carted off the field in the first half and didn't return. Eventually, Adam Schefter of ESPN revealed the second-year pass rusher likely suffered an ACL tear. Now, the results of an MRI have confirmed the extent of the injury. While this is a huge hit to the 49ers defense, the one silver lining is that Bosa should be healthy for the start of the 2021 campaign. In his absence, some combination of Kerry Hyder, Dee Ford (back) and recent signee Ezekiel Ansah will get pass-rushing snaps opposite Arik Armstead.
Coach Kyle Shanahan noted that Bosa most likely tore his ACL during Sunday's game against the Jets, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. If so, this would be a major hit to the 49ers defense. Look for added details on the severity of Bosa's injury after the rising young star undergoes further testing on his knee.
Bosa (knee) won't return to Sunday's game against the Jets, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. Bosa needed to be carted off the field after suffering the knee injury in the first quarter. With the Ohio State product sidelined, look for Kerry Hyder and Dekoda Watson to see an increased snap count. Expect the team to update Bosa's status following the contest.
