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.
