San Francisco 49ers fans all over the country were waiting with bated breath over rookie defensive end Nick Bosa's hamstring injury.

While he didn't get away totally clean, the injury could have been a lot worse. Bosa has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain, which will sideline him for the next few weeks of practice.

A Bosa brother getting hurt? Simply unheard of.

The one major concern surrounding the younger Bosa during his career at Ohio State was his durability, as his final season was cut short after just three games with a core injury.

When he's healthy, however, there aren't many defensive ends in the league with his combination of technical refinement, speed, and power.

With DeForest Buckner, Solomon Thomas, and Dee Ford all on the same line with Bosa, his hamstring could prevent them from having one of the most dominant pass rush units in the league. When Bosa returns, and if he can stay healthy, watch out.
