No. 2 overall pick Nick Bosa had one red flag coming out of Ohio State, and the San Francisco 49ers have just felt the impact of that during OTAs.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic shared Tuesday that Bosa was “clutching his right hamstring following a pass rush drill. He appears to be done for the rest of practice.”

Leading up to the draft, the big news surrounding Bosa was his activity on Twitter. But scouts knew the real question he’d need to answer is whether he could stay healthy or not.

Bosa missed much of last season at Ohio State after undergoing surgery to repair damage to a core muscle. Before that, he suffered an ACL tear during his high-school days — an injury that ended his senior season.

The extent of this latest injury is not yet known. Yet the 49ers have to be feeling a bit nervous about the health of Bosa, both in the short and long term.
