What happened to Nick Bosa?
The San Francisco 49ers confirmed on Friday that defensive end Nick Bosa has passed the concussion protocol. Bosa was knocked out of the 49ers’ wild-card game against the Cowboys late in the second quarter after suffering a concussion. He didn’t practice on Tuesday, had a limited practice session on Wednesday, and had a full practice session on Thursday.
When Nick Bosa collided with defensive tackle D.J. Jones in the second quarter of Sunday’s game in Arlington, Texas, the team announced that he would be out for the second half. He was evaluated with a concussion by the team.
He had a full practice to close off the week, which was a strong sign that he had been cleared. The team made the statement on Friday, which made it official.
A half-sack and a quarterback hit were all part of his stat line at the time of his injury. Sixteen points separated the 49ers at the half.
As one of the league’s most dangerous pass rushers, Bosa has proven to be an asset to the 49ers’ defensive line. With 15.5 sacks, he finished fourth in the NFL in the regular season of 2021, and he was tied for first with 21 tackles for loss.
