49ers-Dolphins Injury Report: Torrey Smith practices while Jimmie Ward sits

Nov 23, 2016 at 3:24 PM--


After being limited in practice last week, San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith missed the first game of his NFL career on Sunday. The result was the same as the team's previous eight games – a loss. This time, it was to the New England Patriots.

Smith returned to practice this week and was out there during today's practice. That bodes well for his availability this weekend. The 49ers and the Miami Dolphins teams play each other on Sunday at 10 a.m. PT.

DB Jimmie Ward was the only 49ers player that did not practice today. He is currently in the league mandated concussion protocol following a head injury suffered on Sunday against the Patriots. Earlier today, 49ers head coach Chip Kelly called Ward the team's best cornerback.

"We think Jimmie's our best corner," Kelly said. "So, I think that matchup, that he's out best corner and our best nickel...I think Jimmie is the one guy that plays all over the place. So, he plays in the slot. He can play nickel. He blitzes from that position. Can match up with the top receivers on the outside. He's a rare combination."

Below is the Wednesday practice participation report for both teams.

ESPN's Smith and Kellerman have different QB predictions for the 49ers

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take have different predictions on who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers during the upcoming season. Kellerman often defends Jimmy Garoppolo against Smith's criticisms, so you might naturally assume that Kellerman would predict that San Francisco would avoid shaking things up. You might also assume that the critical Smith predicts that the 49ers move on from Garoppolo. The opposite is true. Smith envisions San Francisco sticking with Garoppolo while Kellerman has another quarterback in mind to lead head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Me personally, I think it's going to be Jimmy G (as the 49ers' starter)," Smith declared. "That's what I believe. I believe that everybody's been

It's been the better part of a decade since Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick were part of the same quarterback room with the San Francisco 49ers, but Smith still sounds as impressed as ever with what he experienced on and off the field when the two of them were teammates. Smith spoke for almost an hour this week on Kaepernick and a number of other subjects during a guest spot on the 10 Questions With Kyle Brandt Podcast (click here to listen). Smith, who was the starting quarterback for the 49ers when Kaepernick was selected in Round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, told Brandt he remembered Kaepernick as a "great dude" who brought an impressive work ethic to the NFL right out of the gate.
