49ers DE Nick Bosa sidelined with hamstring injury

The San Francisco 49ers are without the second overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft for the short term.

Defensive end Nick Bosa is dealing with a Grade 1 hamstring strain and will be held out of practice for the next few weeks while receiving treatment, the Niners announced through multiple team beat writers.

Erring on the side of caution more than makes sense for the Niners given the tricky nature of hamstring injuries, so there’s no need for Bosa to risk further injury during OTAs in May and early June.

And should the team elect to hold off on Bosa practicing during the three-day mandatory minicamp on June 11-13, he’ll have more time to fully heal between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp in late July.
