The San Francisco 49ers’ defense was missing a finisher for most of the 2020 season. Defensive lineman Nick Bosa tore his ACL early in the Week 2 win over the New York Jets and missed the final 16 games, leaving a major void in the defense.
Bosa has been putting in work to get back into the lineup and be ready for the opening game of the 2021 campaign. He shared a video on Instagram showing his progress (h/t OurSF49ers_):
Although the Niners had a top-10 defense without Bosa, his absence was felt all over the field.
