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.

49ers keeping Jimmy Garoppolo while starting Trey Lance wouldn't surprise Peter King

Will the San Francisco 49ers be able to offload quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to another team? They've certainly expressed a desire to do so. However, Garoppolo remains on the roster after undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8, which sent his stock tumbling. No one seems eager to trade for an injured quarterback who can't throw until late next month, at the earliest. The 49ers have repeatedly stated they are willing to hold onto Garoppolo and his hefty salary if they can't trade him. They aren't going to give him away for free by releasing him. That might mean a team like the division rival Seattle Seahawks scooping him up. Garoppolo is undoubtedly an upgrade over anyone currently in place for the spiraling Seahawks. San Francisco is unlikely to do their NFC West nemesis any



Bleacher Report identifies 49ers' biggest remaining need

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers did what they could to address offseason needs. They signed Charvarius Ward and drafted two cornerbacks to bolster that position. In addition, they hope to have found a replacement for Dee Ford in second-round draft pick Drake Jackson. There remains uncertainty about who will be playing alongside Jimmie Ward at safety, but the team has options. While the 49ers drafted two offensive linemen—Spencer Burford and Nick Zakelj—the interior of that line is among the team's most prominent question marks heading into the 2022 season. It will be tough to replace Laken Tomlinson, who is now with the New York Jets. Also, Tom Compton left for the Denver Broncos after just two seasons with the 49ers. No one knows what is happening with



Are the 49ers really underwhelmed by QB Trey Lance?

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early



Is former 49ers QB coach Rich Scangarello one of the sources for Matt Lombardo's Trey Lance tweet?

Last Thursday, Matt Lombardo of FanSided created a bit of a firestorm on 49ers Twitter when he tweeted out that the 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed by Trey Lance…" I have heard that the #49ers' staff has been continually underwhelmed by Trey Lance … https://t.co/BfypDIHzXo— Matt Lombardo (@MattLombardoNFL) May 5,
