Report: Torrey Smith unlikely to play against Patriots on Sunday

Nov 19, 2016 at 10:21 PM--


WR Torrey Smith is unlikely to play for the San Francisco 49ers when they face the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.


Smith was declared Questionable on Friday's injury report. After missing Tuesday and Wednesday's practices, he returned on Thursday, but was limited. Smith injured his back during a play in the fourth quarter against the Arizona Cardinals.

Head coach Chip Kelly stated that they would get a sense of Smith's available following the team's typical day before the game run-through.

"I think on that pass where [Smith] was crossing the middle in the fourth quarter," Kelly said earlier this week while discussing when the injury occurred against the Cardinals. "Kind of hit his hands and then fell and went to the ground. So, it occurred on that play it looked like because it looked like he was a little bit lame after that one. We put him in motion and then kind of took him out the next play. And we'll see. He's still day-to-day right now and we'll get a sense, a feel for him on Saturday after the whole week of training is over."


Smith has played in 89 straight games to start his NFL career. Over that timespan, he has 263 receptions for 4,497 yards and 36 touchdowns. This season, he has 17 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns.

The 49ers had already declared OLB Aaron Lynch as Out. He practiced this week but was limited and seen limping badly on his injured ankle.

Another interesting tidbit was revealed yesterday courtesy of the new book, "It's Better to Be Feared," by ESPN's Seth Wickersham. The reporter's colleague, Matt Miller, tweeted out that, per the book, the New England Patriots were very interested in reacquiring San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft. Wickersham reports, via Miller, that the Patriots were willing to surrender a second-round pick in exchange for Garoppolo. Now, the 49ers had long been set on drafting Garoppolo's successor, Trey Lance, and had repeatedly stated that Garoppolo remained in their plans for 2021.

Whenever Seth Wickersham reveals a tidbit from his new book, "It's Better to Be Feared," examining the New England Patriots dynasty, Tom Brady, and his departure from the team, it always seems specifically directed at 49ers fans. And no, I'm not exaggerating. Earlier today, more news from Wickersham's book was revealed via ESPN scout Matt Miller, where it was reported that the Patriots allegedly offered a second-round pick for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft, to which the 49ers said no because they desired a first-rounder in return. The Patriots remained in the first round, selecting Mac Jones with the 15th overall pick, while the 49ers took Trey Lance after trading up to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL

It could get ugly. Not just the weather, although it is expected to be ugly this weekend in the Bay Area, but also the San Francisco 49ers offense. The 49ers have lost three games in a row, and seem to be struggling to "find themselves." The team's offense lacks identity right now. And this Sunday, on a soggy Levi's Stadium field, they likely will continue to struggle. But the 49ers won't just be battling the Indianapolis Colts. They will also be fighting sprains, strains and a whole lot of rain. First the weather. Lawrence Karnow, Chief Meteorologist of KRON-TV, was a guest on The Papa and Lund Show on KNBR Radio today to talk about Sunday's weather. He is predicting a big storm for the

Move over San Francisco Giants and their 107-win season. The 49ers are coming off their much-needed bye week and will face the Indianapolis Colts tonight at Levi's Stadium on Sunday Night Football. While it certainly felt good that the Dodgers were eliminated Saturday, it's time to get to the real action: an injury-ravaged San Francisco 49ers team. With a bye week during Week 6, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was able to heal the calf contusion that kept him out of San Francisco's Week 4 and 5 losses to the Seahawks and Cardinals, respectively. While Trey Lance is still healing from the knee sprain he suffered in his first NFL start, Garoppolo and nickel cornerback K'Waun Williams were able to get back on the practice field and are set to start Sunday
