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.

The San Francisco 49ers are at The Greenbrier in West Virginia preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The team continues to hold defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw out of practice, hoping the rest helps heal his continuing knee issues. "I think we'll be easy with him today," head coach Kyle Shanahan said. "Hopefully, if it continues to go well today, he'll get out there more tomorrow." Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley continues to miss practice. However, Shanahan doesn't believe his knee injury is a long-term concern, and his availability against the

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Running back Elijah Mitchell did not practice after leaving — and later returning — to Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted today that the injury was a bit worse than what he hoped but hasn't ruled the rookie out for this weekend's game. "A little worse than a stinger," Shanahan said, "so that's why he can't go today. He's got a chance at Sunday." The team's other rookie running back, Trey Sermon, practiced with a blue no-contact jersey on. He remains in the concussion protocol after suffering a blow to the head on his first NFL

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning and shared an update on his injured star linebacker. Dre Greenlaw will undergo what has been described as core muscle surgery and will miss some time after playing in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. "Dre, I think it's his oblique, is what you would call it," Shanahan said. "That's been bothering him for a little bit. It's something that sometimes gets better the more you rest it. That's why we've been careful with him in practice and everything. But as you do that, as we've been doing for a few weeks, and it's still getting worse, that means you know it's not going to heal up. "So we finally had to make that decision yesterday, which was a tough decision
