Nick Bosa's young NFL career has already hit another bump.
The No. 2 overall pick will be sidelined until the regular season – missing the remainder of 49ers preseason practices and all exhibition games – after spraining his ankle during Wednesday's practice.
#49ers GM John Lynch on @knbr said Nick Bosa sustained an ankle sprain that will knock him out for the exhibition season, at least. We wont see in the preseason and well go from there. Well get him right and hell be a great player for a long time in this league."— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoNBCS) August 8, 2019
Bosa has had an unfortunate injury history throughout his football career. Bosa partially tore his ACL during his senior season of high school then missed most of his final season at Ohio State with a core muscle injury. He also missed the majority of San Francisco 49ers' organized team activities with a hamstring injury.
Before the ankle injury, Bosa was drawing rave reviews with NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reporting that Bosa was "everything the 49ers expected, and more."
