So today is the 1st day of Practice ( no pads ) and with the exception of Alex Boone everyone has reported.
Terrific news are that Jimmie Ward, Tank Carradine and Chris Culliver all are back to 100 percent and ready to go !
Here is the list of players currently on the PUP / NFI List
LB NaVorro Bowman (knee), NT Ian Williams (lower leg), LB Aaron Lynch (hamstring), Kaleb Ramsey (NA), Garrett Celek (NA).
RB Marcus Lattimore (knee/hamstring), WR Bruce Ellington (NA), C Marcus Martin (NA), FB Trey Millard (knee), CB Keith Reaser (knee) and G Brandon Thomas (knee).
Alex Boone situation
As Boone did not report to TC the FO put him on Reserve/did not report. With that move Boone does not count against the 90 man roster currently and is fined $30.000 per day.
Go Niners !
Looks like some strategy here for sure and most were very much expected. Putting Celek on gives McDonald and Carrier all the snaps behnd Davis which is great. Williams sucks but somewhat expected given his position requirements (taking on two linemen) and after 4 surgeries. This also gives Dial the in to the 53 as the key backup at NT. We ust need to wait and see re: Lattimore, Ellington and Martin re: the NFI's but the rest were expected. As for BOOne? Get your ass back in camp or you could lose your job...lots of talent with Looney (3 years experience now), Martin, Seymour, etc.
