ARLINGTON, Texas — The 49ers have lost a Pro Bowl staple of their defense for the second half of their wild-card game against the Cowboys.

Edge rusher Nick Bosa suffered a concussion after fellow San Francisco defensive tackle D.J. Jones ran into him during a second-quarter play.

Bosa had just engaged from Cowboys right tackle La’el Collins – who drew a flag on the play – when Jones’ lower body collided in motion with Bosa’s helmet. Bosa sat on the field for minutes while examined by team trainers. He eventually walked off the field under his own power, flashing a thumbs-up to the crowd.

But after an evaluation in the sideline medical tent, Bosa headed toward the locker room in the final minute before halftime.

He was ruled out of the game with a concussion. In one half of play, Bosa had two tackles and half a sack. His 49ers had led the entire game.

Bosa had 15.5 sacks, 32 quarterback hits and four forced fumbles in the regular season. No player had more than his 21 tackles for loss.
