The San Francisco 49ers took the practice field earlier than we’re used to Thursday since they’re practicing in Ohio. Here’s the injury report from today:
Nick Bosa (ankle)
Trent Taylor (foot)
Jalen Hurd (back)
Jimmie Ward (finger)
Back at practice
Mark Nzeocha (illness), returned to practice.
Ward was in a blue, non-contact jersey once again. He will likely be a game-time decision Sunday.
Bosa’s status remains uncertain for the game. He’s still suffering from soreness in his ankle. John Lynch was on 95.7 The Game Thursday morning and said that Bosa hurt himself on the first play of the game Week 1:
“He was sore coming out, and that was somewhat to be expected,” Lynch said on the “Joe, Lo and Dibs” show. “He had done a really nice job through his rehab, and when you have high-ankle sprains, sometimes you get dinged, and it can affect you for a little bit. He did early in the game. On the first play, he actually planted the wrong way. He didn’t roll it, but it hurt him a little bit. Nick battled through that and played at a really high level. He found out the hard way that (Buccaneers quarterback) Jameis (Winston) is hard to bring down, and could have potentially had three (sacks), and did a great job to come away with one.”
Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said he’d like to see Bosa practice before he plays on Sunday, which would mean Friday is his final opportunity, and that’s a walk-through. On if Bosa will play, Saleh said, “we’ll see.”
Lynch said Bosa would be limited throughout the week, but he’s fully intent on playing. Lynch would not commit to the number of snaps Bosa would play. Here is the entire interview:
