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.

Sunday night will be a reunion for many San Francisco 49ers players. All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since being traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2020. "He was the heart and soul when he was here, man," safety Jimmie Ward said of Buckner after today's practice. "I wasn't happy about [the trade], but I understand the business side. I'm pretty sure you all knew something was going to happen, just like I did. I just didn't know what was going to happen. "When that happened, like I said, it was bittersweet. We ended up getting [Javon] Kinlaw, and we ended up getting Brandon Aiyuk. But we lost a leader, especially a leader on the defense. Really, a leader on this team, in this building. But he's

Jimmy Garoppolo was out on the practice field for the third time this week (the San Francisco 49ers held a bonus practice on Monday). We won't know exactly how much the starting quarterback worked during today's session until the team issues its practice participation report later this afternoon. Reporters aren't allowed to watch the entire practice, which means missing out on team drills. The Niners listed Garoppolo as limited on Wednesday. On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said he is "pretty optimistic" Garoppolo would be available for Sunday's home game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, he was less sure about the status of his rookie quarterback and
