Bosa won AP Defensive Rookie of the Year honors Saturday.
He was also given the Pepsi Rookie of the Year award, but Bosa would undoubtedly trade both awards for a win in the upcoming Super Bowl on Sunday. The second overall selection in the 2019 draft has played a key role in his team's run to the Super Bowl, recording three sacks in San Francisco's pair of playoff wins after accruing nine during the regular season. Teams picking at the top of the draft aced their selections in 2019, as first overall pick Kyler Murray won Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Bosa recorded six solo tackles, two sacks and one defended pass during Saturday's win over the Vikings.
Coming off a stellar regular-season campaign, the rookie second-overall pick logged a dominant performance during Saturday's NFC divisional-round win. Bosa withstood an apparent abdominal injury that kept him on the ground for an extended period in the fourth quarter, but he managed to remain on the field. The likely Defensive Rookie of the Year will look to keep up his momentum in next Saturday's NFC Championship Game against either the Packers or Seahawks.
Bosa finished the regular season with 47 tackles (32 solo), nine sacks, a forced fumble and an interception in 16 games.
The second-overall pick put the league on notice when he racked up a whopping seven sacks over his first seven contests. Bosa did slow down in that department in the second half of the season, but the loss of fellow edge rusher Dee Ford was a significant factor as opposing defenses began to double Bosa often. The talented lineman still finished with 80 total pressures, which was 14 more than any other rookie in NFL history, according to Cam Mellor of Pro Football Focus. If the 49ers are able to provide a consistent threat opposite Bosa on the edge, we could see the phenom put up even bigger sack totals in the 2020 season.
Bosa recorded no tackles, sacks or pass breakups in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Rams.
Bosa did hit the quarterback twice, so he wasn't totally without an effect on the game. He'll try to record his 10th sack of the season Week 17 against Seattle.
Bosa recorded three tackles (one solo), a sack and a pass breakup in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.
It was Bosa's first sack in three games but his second consecutive tilt with a pass breakup. He's up to nine sacks on the year.
Bosa only logged two solo tackles in 68 defensive snaps in Sunday's 48-46 win over New Orleans.
Bosa and the rest of the stout defensive line were held in check for much of the game, and he moved his season tackle total to 38 (26 solo). He may be hitting a little rut late in the season, as Bosa has secured just one sack in his six contests.
Bosa made three tackles (two solo) and recorded a sack and a fumble recovery in Sunday night's 37-8 win over the Packers.
It was Bosa's ninth sack of the year and his first in four games, ending his longest drought of the year. He's up to 35 tackles (23 solo) this season.
Bosa recorded four tackles (all solo), three sacks and his first career interception in Sunday's 51-13 win over the Panthers.
Bosa turned in one of the best individual defensive performances of 2019. The impressive rookie continues to raise the bar for Defensive Rookie of the Year. The 22-year-old phenom has now accrued 20 tackles, seven sacks, a forced fumble and an interception through seven games. If Bosa continues to play at this frenetic pace, he will not only be the front-runner for DROY, but he will also be in consideration for Defensive Player of the Year. He will look to make the Cardinals pay for passing up on the consensus best player in the draft when the 49ers take on No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray on Thursday.
Bosa had seven tackles (five solo) and one sack in Sunday's 9-0 win over the Redskins.
Bosa not only led the 49ers' defensive in tackles, but he also totaled four tackles for a loss. The 21-year-old has 16 tackles (12 solo), four sacks and one forced fumble through six games.
Bosa produced four solo tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in Monday's 31-3 win over the Browns.
Bosa was firing off the line all night, and he was majorly disruptive with two timely sacks, including a first half-ending sack of Baker Mayfield. The rookie first-round pick now has three sacks through four games, and this was the type of outing that keeps him in the Defensive Player of the Year conversation.
Bosa (ankle) will play in Sunday's contest against Pittsburgh.
Bosa was limited in practice all week and, as evidenced by this news, that was likely a precaution leading into Sunday. The 2019 second-overall pick played in 56 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 1 against Tampa Bay, so it's reasonable to expect a similar workload for Sunday's game.
Bosa (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Bosa was limited in practice all week, but there has not yet been anything to suggest that the rookie is going to be inactive after returning to the lineup Week 2. Expect an update on Bosa's status to come at some point on Sunday.
Bosa (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bosa appears to still not be completely over the ankle injury that plagued him for all of the preseason despite being active for each of the first two games of his rookie season. Given that, it looks like the 49ers are just being cautious with their prized rookie defensive end, but his status should still be monitored through this week of practice.
Bosa (ankle) is active for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
The second overall pick in the 2019 draft, Bosa missed the entire preseason slate with an ankle sprain but recovered enough to earn 56 percent of the defensive snaps Week 1 at Tampa Bay, a contest in which he tallied three tackles and his first sack as a professional. The ankle issue continued to plague him this week, keeping him out of the first two practices before getting in a limited showing Friday. Considered a game-time call, Bosa will continue to gut it out against a Bengals offensive line that gave up five sacks versus the Seahawks in the regular-season opener.
Bosa (ankle), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, is expected to play in the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The rookie has been hobbled by the ankle injury since training camp, but he was able to make his NFL debut in the Week 1 win over the Buccaneers, notching three tackles and a sack while playing 56 percent of the defensive snaps. The high-ankle issue still plagued Bosa in practice this week and prompted the 49ers to label the defensive end as a game-time decision heading into the weekend, but barring a setback in warmups, he'll be on track to suit up Sunday. Bosa could again have his snap count monitored while he manages the injury, however.

Bosa overcame the same ankle injury to suit up for last week's 31-17 win over the Buccaneers, tallying three tackles, three QB hits and a sack on 38 snaps in his NFL debut. His absence from practice Wednesday and Thursday seems to hint at a minor setback, but the 49ers haven't mentioned anything along those lines. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Bosa looked good at Friday's walk-through, setting up a game-time decision before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Bosa (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Bosa has dealt with a high-ankle sprain since the beginning of preseason, but he was cleared to play through the injury and make his NFL debut in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Coach Kyle Shanahan noted after the game that Bosa's ankle was sore, so the rookie could be in store for a restricted practice slate this week. He'll likely need to advance to at least limited participation by Friday's session in order to receive an active status for the Week 2 matchup with the Bengals.
Bosa recorded three total tackles, three quarterback hits and a sack in Sunday's 31-17 victory over Tampa Bay.
Bosa was questionable heading into Sunday's contest, but he managed to play 39 of a possible 70 defensive plays (56 percent). The rookie second overall pick sat out of all preseason action while nursing a high-ankle sprain. Bosa will continue to see at least a rotational role on San Francisco's defensive front in 2019.
Bosa (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Buccaneers.
The second overall pick in last April's draft will thus make his professional debut after missing the entire preseason. Whether Bosa will be on a snap count or not after sitting out the entirety of the exhibition slate remains to be seen, but he'll apparently factor into a rotation on the defensive line at a minimum.
While Bosa (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, coach Kyle Shanahan "feels good" about the rookie's ability to play, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Bosa has been plagued by a high ankle sprain for the last month, but after logging limited sessions during Week 1 prep, Shanahan seems confident that he'll have the 49ers' 2019 first-round pick available to start the season. If he's deemed active, Bosa may be utilized in a situational role to ease him in.
