Bosa claims he will be 'better' for 49ers in 2021 post-injury


Nick Bosa has been hard at work since tearing his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season MetLife Stadium when the 49ers battled the lowly New York Jets.

The former No. 2 overall draft pick spoke with ESPN's Josina Anderson before a workout Monday, and gave an encouraging yet cagey update on his recovery process.

Bosa hasn't spoken much publicly since the injury, but some videos have surfaced of his workouts as he prepares for the 2021 season, including this one from mid-January that should be reassuring for the Faithful.

Bosa put together an impressive rookie season to say the least in 2019, racking up 47 combined tackles -- including 9.0 sacks -- and adding two pass deflections. He also forced a fumble and finished with one interception.

The postseason was where Bosa truly shined. The rookie had 4.0 sacks over three playoff games, and had a famous strip-sack of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl LIV, although it was recovered by the offense.

Pro Football Focus ranked Bosa's effort in Super Bowl LIV as among the most notable Super Bowl performances of the PFF era (2006 to present).

The future is bright for Bosa, and it has to be a tremendous feeling for 49ers fans to hear so much confidence from the 23-year-old about his prospects for the 2021 season.
