49ers Star Misses Second Straight Practice

The San Francisco 49ers are off to a solid start in 2022, with a 3-2 record despite all the injuries they've suffered, and ahead of their Week 6 battle with the Atlanta Falcons, it appears that yet another defensive star could be missing a crucial clash. According to the 49ers injury report, superstar defensive end Nick Bosa has missed practice for the second straight day, and with all of the injuries piling up, it's becoming tougher and tougher for San Francisco to maintain a grasp on the NFC West division lead. 

If Bosa were to miss some time due to the groin injury, this team would be decimated, as the majority of their success over the past 5-6 years has been predicated on a fantastic defence getting to the Quarterback, and often. With Jimmy Garropolo at QB, this team has a limited ceiling if the defence isn't playing at an elite level, and without Bosa, there's a big chance that the production drops off in a massive way.

There's still two days to go before the 49ers Week 6 matchup, so plenty can change in that time, but if Bosa can't return to practice on Friday, it's hard to see him suiting up for the game on Sunday.
