Arik Armstead’s injured left shoulder continues to plague him against Saints

Nov 6, 2016 at 1:21 PM--


During the San Francisco 49ers' opening series against the New Orleans Saints, second-year defensive lineman Arik Armstead was slow to get up following a player. Armstead, last year's top pick by the 49ers, was able to walk slowly off of the field.

Armstead has been battling a shoulder injury since training camp and is wearing a harness on that shoulder today. He was seen shaking his left arm on the sideline and team trainers worked on that shoulder.

Armstead is reportedly questionable to return in this game.

Despite the injury, which may need surgery at some point, Armstead has been playing through the discomfort all season. He has played in seven games this season, starting three. He has had 14 tackles and 2.5 sacks this season.

San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward has gone against several rookie quarterbacks over his career, and he's done it from several positions on defense. He knows the difference between going against a rookie and a seasoned veteran. Coaches tend to keep things simple for younger players trying to transition to the pro level. That means a lot of plays are designed to get the football out of their hands quickly. Often, the game plan also involves playing it safe. "I don't know too many [young] quarterbacks that will go for a deep ball on third-and-one and third-and-two," Ward said Wednesday on 95.7 The Game's Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. "Most likely, they're going to play it safe and try to run some kind of quick-game route to get the

When the San Francisco 49ers traded first round picks in 2022 and 2023, and a third round pick in 2022, to Miami for the third selection in the 2021 NFL draft, Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch committed their legacy and San Francisco's future to a quarterback, and multiple reputable sources insisted it would be Mac Jones. Was Kyle Shanahan right in wanting Mac Jones and how will passing on him, and instead selecting Trey Lance, affect the aforementioned legacy and future of the 49ers?

DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since the San Francisco 49ers traded the defensive lineman to the Indianapolis Colts last year. On Wednesday, he jumped on a conference call with 49ers reporters and reflected on the surprising move. "In the moment, when you told me, when it was official, when I got traded, the feelings that I was feeling, if you told me that I was going to feel this way a year-and-a-half later, I would have said you're crazy," Buckner told reporters. "But everything happens for a reason, and the Lord put me here for a reason, and I'm very happy for the decisions that were made." Money was obviously an obstacle in San Francisco holding onto the talented defender. Buckner said the 49ers never offered him anything
