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.

It took three months, but former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton finally found a new NFL home.

Was this the worst call against the 49ers in team history?

Mike Phillips of FanSided endeavored to name the worst call against each NFL team in their history. So naturally, I skipped past 31 NFL teams and headed straight to the call that went against the San Francisco 49ers. The FanSided contributor chose the holding call against Ronnie Lott in the NFC Championship Game during the 1983 season. San Francisco had won just one Super Bowl at that point and was fighting for its second Vice Lombardi Trophy. Washington had jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the third quarter and looked well on its way to easily eliminating the 49ers. The 49ers started mounting a fourth-quarter comeback, though. Joe Montana hit Mike Wilson for a score.
