The San Francisco 49ers plan to make noise this year after an injury-riddled 2020 campaign dashed any hopes of a return to the Super Bowl. Star EDGE Nick Bosa was one of many who missed significant time last season, as a Week 2 ACL tear ended his year early.

Bosa has spent the offseason preparing to make his return, and his latest injury update reveals how much progress he's made.

Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Sunday that Bosa will likely suit up in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. Shanahan added that it's been the plan "all along" for the 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year to come back for that game, barring any setbacks. It's exciting to have a confirmed return date for Bosa and hear he's on track to hit the ground running at the start of the 2021 season.

Bosa immediately made his present felt as a rookie for the 49ers. He won DROY in 2019 after racking up 25 QB hits, 16 tackles for loss and 9.0 sacks. He also recorded an interception and forced fumble along with 2 pass deflections in that standout debut season.

The 23-year-old coming back at 100% will be a huge boost to San Francisco's defense as the team hopes for a bounce-back year. The 49ers are tied for the fifth-best odds to win the Super Bowl at +1400, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
