Earlier this week, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft suffered an injury in just the second practice in which veterans attended.
San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa reportedly suffered a hamstring injury during practice on Tuesday. After the session ended, head coach Kyle Shanahan suggested the injury was not serious.
Two days later, Shanahan’s initial report was correct – kind of.
According to a report from 49ers insider Cam Inman of Mercury News, Bosa suffered a Grade 1 hamstring strain.
As a result, he’ll miss three weeks of offseason workouts.
#49ers Nick Bosa has Grade 1 hamstring strain from Tuesday practice, won't practice remaining three weeks of offseason program while receiving treatment, per team

The former Ohio State star saw his final collegiate season come to an end after suffering a core muscle injury.
Despite suffering a season-ending injury in his final season with the Buckeyes, Bosa became the highest-drafted Bosa, besting his brother Joey who was the No. 3 overall pick in 2016.
After the Arizona Cardinals made former Oklahoma star Kyler Murray the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, the 49ers had an easy decision in front of them in selecting Bosa. However, both Nick and Joey Bosa have shown injury proneness throughout their football careers.
Hopefully Nick can get back to full health and showcase his talents for a 16-game rookie season.
Stay tuned for the latest.
