SANTA CLARA — The 49ers might be cursed. Here is their list of injured players for Tuesday’s Organized Team Activity (OTA). It’s a long list.
It starts with rookie defensive end Nick Bosa, the second pick in April’s draft. He is a newcomer to the injured list. He pulled his right hamstring right out of the gate Tuesday and sat out the rest of practice. “I wasn’t over there, so I’m not sure of the severity,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said after practice.
Bosa pulled his hamstring during one-on-one pass rush drills. He immediately walked to a trainer, who massaged Bosa’s hamstring for a minute and held him out of practice the rest of the afternoon.
Like the 49ers, who had 41 players on the injured reserve list the past two seasons, Bosa has had bad luck with his health.
Last season, he missed 11 games at Ohio State with a core muscle injury which required surgery. Tuesday’s OTA was just the fifth time he has practiced since the surgery.
Bosa wasn’t the only 49er dealing with injuries.
