Aaron Lynch will miss 9th game of the season

Dec 4, 2016 at 8:57 AM--


San Francisco 49ers LB Aaron Lynch will miss his ninth game of the season and his fifth straight when the team kicks off against the Bears in Chicago.

Lynch has played in just three games this season and has just a single sack in those games. Considered to be last year's best pass rusher, Lynch missed the first four games of the season for violating the NFL's policy on substances of abuse.

His latest string of missed games has been due to a high-ankle sprain that he suffered on October 23 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Once again, Eli Harold will start in Lynch's place.

Starting WR Quinton Patton has been cleared from the concussion protocol and is active in Chicago.

That made headlines because the duo opted to watch quarterback Mac Jones rather than attend Ohio State's pro day to watch Justin Fields. Paired with Chris Simms' speculation that San Francisco might have traded up to the No. 3 spot for Jones, that spurred others to seriously consider a Jones-to-49ers scenario. Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently joined the Dan Patrick Show and shared that neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked him anything about his former quarterback, who helped guide the Crimson Tide to a national championship. And it wasn't because they didn't have an opportunity to do

The San Francisco 49ers traded multiple first-round picks and a third-rounder next year to move up to the No. 3 spot in this month's draft. Soon after, quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama became the favorite to be selected by head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch. Members of the national media has started to back off a bit from proclaiming that scenario to be a near-lock. While they still declare Jones the favorite, no one is ready to admit that they are 100 percent certain what the 49ers' brass will do come April 29. "I think they have an open mind right now," ESPN's Adam Schefter recently told NBC Sports Bay Area. "I think they go into this
