49ers rookie DE Bosa misses practice due to ankle
San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa sat out Wednesday's practice at Youngstown State due to an ankle injury.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said the team is being cautious with Bosa's ankle, and that is why the rookie was held out of the workout at the school's soccer stadium. The 49ers are practicing in Ohio for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals after opening the season in Florida with a 31-17 win at Tampa Bay.
"I'm worried about that for anybody who's ever had a high-ankle sprain," Shanahan told reporters. "High-ankle sprains usually linger throughout the year."
Bosa, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, missed the entire preseason with a high-ankle sprain. He had three tackles, one sack and three QB hits during his NFL debut against the Buccaneers.
Bosa played in just three games for Ohio State during his final college campaign last season after undergoing core muscle surgery.
Running back Tevin Coleman (ankle) also missed practice and is likely to miss the game against the Bengals. He was injured against Tampa Bay.
Also sitting out were receiver Jalen Hurd (back), offensive tackle Joe Staley (not injury related) and receiver Trent Taylor (foot). Linebacker Mark Nzeocha (illness) and safety Jimmie Ward (broken finger) were limited participants.
