Now Lynch will get to see his No. 2 overall pick in action, but the amount of playing time Bosa gets remains to be seen considering the Ohio State product missed most of training camp and was tempered in practice leading up to the season.
Bosa is officially listed as questionable in the 49ers' injury report and was a limited participant in practice all week.
The positive news is what San Francisco has hoped for during a preseason that has been riddled with injuries. With their rookie edge rusher back healthy and available to play, the 49ers look to start the season on the right foot in what is a big season for third-year head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Here are other news items we are monitoring on Sunday morning:
- Jacksonville Jaguars LT Cam Robinson (knee) has no structural damage but could maybe miss a few weeks, according to NFL Network's James Palmer, per source. Robinson hyperextended his right knee in practice this week and has been already ruled out for Sunday vs. the Chiefs. With backup Cedric Ogbuehi (hamstring) also ruled out, Will Richardson gets the start.
- According to Rapoport, Ravens rookie WR Marquise Brown (foot) is expected to play against the Dolphins, per source. Listed as questionable, Brown missed practice as early as last Friday, but coach John Harbaugh was confident he would play all along. Brown, of Hollywood, Florida, now gets to make his NFL debut a homecoming in Miami.
As for Patriots WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring), the team hasn't ruled him out officially but, according to Rapoport, they will be cautious going forward.
- Cleveland Browns rookie cornerback Greedy Wlliams is set to start in his NFL debut today against the Titans opposite second-year corner Denzel Ward, NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported per two defensive coaches.
