Bosa’s and Thomas’s injuries were one of several injuries yesterday to 49ers starting players, including Jimmy Garoppolo, and Raheem Mostert.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo was questionable for Sunday’s game after suffering a high ankle sprain, while Mostert was doubtful with an MCL sprain.
Backup running back Tevin Coleman also suffered a sprained knee on Sunday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Coleman was expected to miss multiple weeks.
The 49ers are also monitoring injuries to tight end George Kittle and defensive end Dee Ford. Cornerback Jason Verrett was expected to return to practice this week; he was expected to help fill the void left by injured starter Richard Sherman.
