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 preparing for their Divisional playoff contest against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Defensive end Nick Bosa remains in the concussion protocol, and being cleared will be a challenge due to the short week of preparation. The good news is that he returned to practice on Wednesday. Although, he was listed as a "limited" participant. Bosa was on the field with his teammates for the pre-practice walkthrough but headed to the locker room before practice started.

Jimmie Ward: Garoppolo gives 49ers a 'great chance' to beat Packers

A lot of people like to criticize Jimmy Garoppolo. He's not the type of quarterback who plays mistake-free football. However, he does win football games—a lot more than he loses. Garoppolo is 37-15 as a starter, counting the playoffs. Some will argue that often, the 49ers win games despite Garoppolo. This past weekend's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys is a perfect example of that. Garoppolo tossed a costly interception that kept Dallas in the game, but the team held on for a 23-17 victory. Garoppolo is banged up, though. He was already playing through an injured right thumb that causes pain with each throw. In addition, Garoppolo suffered a right shoulder sprain in the game. Nevertheless, he's been practicing this week, and all signs point to him
