49ers-Dolphins Injury Report: Jimmie Ward returns to practice

Nov 24, 2016 at 1:11 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers practice early today at 7:15 a.m. so that players could leave to join their families for Thanksgiving.

CB Jimmie Ward, who suffered a concussion on Sunday against the New England Patriots, has been cleared for non-contact football activity. He is currently in the league-mandated concussion protocol. Ward did not practice yesterday but took limited part in practice today.

Head coach Chip Kelly spoke to the media via conference call today and was asked if Ward would play on Sunday. "I can't make any predictions on that," Kelly said. "He's just going to see what he can do today but I don't know what that means."

WR Torrey Smith practiced again today and looks to be on pace to play on Sunday. Smith missed the first game of his career this past weekend as he sat against the Patriots.

Kelly said that OLB Aaron Lynch has practiced all week, but would be a game time decision on Sunday. "He's practiced every day this week and we'll continue to monitor him and make a decision either after Saturday's practice or Sunday's workout," Kelly said.

Below is the Thursday practice participation report for both teams. The 49ers and the Miami Dolphins teams play each other on Sunday at 10 a.m. PT.

Why Bleacher Report lists 49ers among teams destined to disappoint in 2021

Following an injury-plagued 2020 campaign, many fans are hopeful things are looking up for the San Francisco 49ers. After all, the team was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago. The Niners limped through 2020 without names like Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, George Kittle, and many others for much of the season. San Francisco suffered an absurd amount of injuries, which clearly contributed to its 6-10 record. The 2021 season will be better, right? Chris Roling of Bleacher Report and The Bengals Wire doesn't believe so. He lists the 49ers among his five NFL teams that are destined to disappoint during the upcoming season. Why San

The Sports Business Journal is reporting that the NFL is getting close to finalizing its new media deals for the rights to broadcast or stream future games. Things could cross the finish line as early as this week and then be announced next week—possibly earlier. It sounds like Fox will retain the rights to NFC games on Sundays, but there has reportedly been some pushback from the network on the asking price—over $2.2 billion per year for 11 years—which doubles that of the previous deal. As reported earlier, Amazon Prime Video looks poised to secure the exclusive rights to simulcast Thursday Night Football on its streaming platform,
