49ers rookie Nick Bosa out for a few weeks with Grade 1 hamstring strain
The San Francisco 49ers received an update on their first-round draft pick, Nick Bosa. Of course, Bosa suffered an apparent hamstring injury during a team practice on Tuesday.
According to Cam Inman, a 49ers reporter, Bosa will be out a few weeks after suffering a Grade 1 hamstring strain. Therefore, Bosa will miss the rest of the team’s offseason activities but should be ready for training camp.
The 49ers are probably glad that it isn’t an injury that will hold Bosa out for an extended period of time. Plus, he’ll be receiving treatment to get him back to feeling comfortable enough to play again.
Bosa had injury issues during his 2018 season with Ohio State. The rookie defensive end had groin issues and a core muscle injury that limited him to playing in just three games in his last season with Ohio State.
Bosa elected to get surgery last year and elected to get himself ready for the 2019 NFL Draft. The 49ers didn’t seem too worried about his injury to take him with the second overall pick in this year’s draft.
Now, Bosa is already on the injury list and will be a little behind on schedule in terms of learning the defense. Hopefully, this isn’t the beginning of an injury-riddled career for the talented pass rusher.
Hamstrings aren’t something to mess around with as they can become lingering problems throughout the season. A Grade 1 hamstring strain is the least threatening of strains (ranges from one to three).
Nonetheless, San Francisco will likely be very patient in getting Bosa back until he’s healthy. Until then, the 49ers will have to wait to see their coveted edge rusher back on the field.
