49ers place LB Shayne Skov on IR and make other roster moves

Nov 29, 2016 at 10:32 AM--


San Francisco 49ers LB Shayne Skov suffered a knee injury against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and has been placed on the Injured Reserve list. To take his place, the team has promoted S Marcus Ball to the active roster. The 49ers have also brought back LB Wynton McManis, who has been signed to the practice squad.

Ball will wear number 46.

Skov did not make the original 53-man roster but was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster on September 21 following LB Ray-Ray Armstrong being placed on the Injured Reserve list.

"Shayne was actually a difficult cut to cut it to 53 because I thought he did enough to make the team," 49ers head coach Chip Kelly explained in September. "Obviously, we felt like we had six inside linebackers that were NFL quality players so that was a difficult day for Shayne and for us."

Skov has appeared in nine games this season. During those games, he has two tackles on defense along with eight tackles on special teams. In 2015 with San Francisco, he appeared in 15 games and registered four tackles on special teams.

Ball originally signed to the team's practice squad on November 22. He entered the NFL by signing as an undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints in 2014. He appeared in 12 games – starting two – during his rookie season and had 12 tackles on defense and nine special teams tackles. This season with the Carolina Panthers, Ball appeared in one game and spent time on their practice squad before being released October 11. He also spent a very brief time on the practice squad of the Jacksonville Jaguars before signing with the 49ers.

McManis spent training camp with the 49ers after being signed on May 2. He was released on August 27.

Raheem Mostert a positive example for other 49ers players, says Richard Hightower

San Francisco 49ers special teams coordinator Richard Hightower may have lost one of his unit's aces with the emergence of running back Raheem Mostert on offense, but he's gained an example for the team's younger players. Mostert joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He spent time with six teams before landing with the 49ers the next year. Even then, the running back mostly contributed on special teams. That is, after all, where so many NFL players have to prove themselves upon entering the league. Mostert burst onto the scene last season, and the NFL took notice when he rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. "I would feel bad if I didn't say how proud I am of

The NFL is trying to figure out a way to prepare for the worst. The COVID-19 pandemic isn't slowing down and could threaten the 2020 NFL season, which would impact revenue across the league and future salary caps. It's that uncertainty that has likely stalled a new contract for San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. It also prompted the NFL to propose temporarily withholding 35 percent of player salaries to help manage the potential losses from the upcoming season, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL

There has been a lot of offseason criticism thrown on the shoulders of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. A lot. Probably more than necessary. It's understandable given how his 2019 campaign ended. Yes, he had a spectacular regular season. It was among the best in franchise history. Everyone tends to look at the playoffs, though. Garoppolo didn't do much during the 49ers' first two playoff games. In his defense, he didn't have to. The team put up dominating performances against the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers. Garoppolo looked on his way to being named the MVP of Super Bowl LIV before...well...Patrick Mahomes happened, and Garoppolo
