San Francisco 49ers young star defensive end Nick Bosa will not play a single snap of the 2019 season. The team said he is dealing with a ‘significant’ ankle injury.

Bosa was injured on Wednesday during practice.

“We wont’ see [him] in the preseason and we’ll go from there,” General Manager John Lynch said to KNBR-680’s Matt Maiocco. “… We’ll get him right and he’ll be a great player for a long time in this league.”

Bosa was not the only player, who was injured on Wednesday. The team also lost cornerback Jason Verrett to a minor ankle sprain, while wide receiver Marquise Goodwin left the field, before later returning.

The 49ers are not taking any chances with their 2019 No. 2 overall pick. ESPN’s Nick Wagoner is reporting ‘[Bosa] doesn’t have a full blown high ankle sprain.’

During his last college football season in 2018, he was shutdown after suffering a core muscle injury with the Ohio State Buckeyes. He also previously suffered a torn ACL injury in high school.

The 49ers have high hopes for Bosa, who they think they have a dynamic duo with the Fort Lauderdale, Florida native and Dee Ford coming off the edge. Ford was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs in the off-season.

Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are hoping that Bosa and Ford are going to improve the 49ers 22nd ranking in total sacks in 2018. Their defense was 28th in points per game one year ago.
