Former Ohio State star Nick Bosa isn’t expected to miss much — if any — of the 2021 NFL season due to an ACL tear he suffered last year, according to a report.

That’s per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, who discussed Bosa’s prognosis on Friday.

“If you’ve listened to some of the Zoom interviews from the 49ers players who have signed over the course of the last couple weeks and free agency, Bosa has represented a lot of optimism for them,” Rapoport told NFL Network on Friday. “… It sounds like Bosa is going to be ready and expected to contribute mightily for this 49ers team.”

Bosa appears to be ahead of schedule in his rehab. Here’s a recent video showing his progress:

Bosa will be entering his third NFL season. His first season with the 49ers showed great promise, as he produced nine sacks and one interception en route to earning Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.
