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.

Kyle Juszczyk emotional while discussing his future, wants to return to 49ers

Kyle Juszczyk hopes to return to the San Francisco 49ers next season. Like so many of his teammates, he is scheduled to become a free agent. The fullback knows the situation, though. The team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to fall in 2021. That means some tough decisions are to be made, and Juszczyk is already by far the highest-paid fullback in the league. He is also the best and a key component in the 49ers' rushing attack. Juszczyk spoke with reporters on Monday via Zoom and was noticeably emotional while discussing his NFL future. "To be honest with you, it's just kind of a sense of (being) unsure," Juszczyk said of his NFL future. "I'm not totally sure what's ahead for me. I don't want it to be a sense of finality. Honestly, it's just

Kyle Shanahan discusses finding a risk-reward balance while building the 49ers roster

The San Francisco 49ers always seem willing to take a chance on a player if the potential value appears to outweigh the cost. Take cornerback Jason Verrett, for instance. The 49ers' brain trust could have cut ties with the player, who was considered injury-prone, after he landed on injured reserve last season. It was the fifth time in six NFL seasons that Verrett landed on injured reserve. No one would have blamed San Francisco for cutting its losses and moving on. Verrett proved to be one of the better storylines in an otherwise disastrous season. Not only did the cornerback stay healthy, starting 13 games, but he was Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest graded cornerback. RELATED:

Multiple coaching candidates plan to run Kyle Shanahan's scheme; Dolphins interested in 49ers' Mike McDaniel

By David Bonilla
Jan 14, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers may fall victim to the effect of running what many consider to be a successful and innovative scheme — the poaching of talent. Despite the six-win season, the team is just a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance, and head coach Kyle Shanahan remains one of the most highly-respected offensive minds in the league. NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of
