It was a poor performance for the historic franchise and has motivated them to return with a vengeance next season. And now, they have one key player ready to make his return next year.

San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa appears to be making a recovery. A video clip showing Bosa doing some recovery exercises surfaced earlier today on Twitter, and all indications point to him making good progress so far.

Bosa is amping up his recovery in the hopes that he gets declared fit for the new season. The 49ers severely missed Bosa last season, as their performances lacked aggression.

Bosa got injured last season while playing with the San Francisco 49ers. His injury came just two games into the 2020 NFL season.

The 49ers had traveled to Met Life Stadium to face the New York Jets, but Bosa had to exit the game quite early, thanks to a severe ACL tear. The injury ruled Bosa out for the rest of the season and robbed the 49ers of one of their brightest young stars.

Nick Bosa ready to make a return this season.

Bosa is a very talented young prospect for the 49ers. In his rookie season with the 49ers, Bosa made the Pro-Bowl, then went on to be named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

He was a crucial cog in the 49ers machine that were able to reach the Super Bowl. However, they lost the game to the emerging Kansas City Chiefs.

The return of Bosa will further strengthen a 49ers team that is looking to make another run next year. The 49ers have already made some big moves so far.

Recently, they traded several future draft picks to Miami, along with their 12th overall pick in order to acquire the 3rd overall pick in this year’s draft. The 49ers will most likely select a young new quarterback to build their team around.

Can the San Francisco 49ers be successful again next season? The loss of several players to injury, including Nick Bosa, was a big loss for them.

These injuries derailed their momentum last year and led to several losses and missing the Playoffs. The 49ers will try to make last season a distant memory with strong performances from the start of the season.
