The news for top 49ers pick in this year’s draft defensive end Nick Bosa is not good, as it looks like he’s going to miss a decent amount of time with the tema.
Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports Bosa has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain and will not play at all during the preseason, and his recovery could reach into the regular season for the club.
“We won’t see in the preseason and we’ll go from there. . . . We’ll get him right and he’ll be a great player for a long time in this league,” 49ers GM John Lynch told Maiocco.
The No.2-overall pick in this year’s draft missed most of his final college season at Ohio State with a core muscle injury and missed most of the 49ers’ offseason program with a hamstring injury.
The 49ers will likely be cautious about getting him back into action this fall.
