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.

The NFL Draft has seemingly been a crapshoot for the Niners. For every Nick Bosa, there is a Solomon Thomas or Reuben Foster. There have been George Kittles and Fred Warners. However, selections like Dante Pettis severely impact evaluations of recent draft classes. The jury is still out on last year's first-rounders, Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk. The latter's lack of involvement this season has been baffling. The 49ers have hit

The San Francisco 49ers have played five games this season. Their second-round draft pick, guard Aaron Banks, has been inactive for each of them. That has led many to question the selection. That's a high draft slot for a player who has yet to contribute this season. Veteran center Alex Mack joined KNBR this morning and was asked about his rookie teammate. What does Banks need to do to get on the football field for the 49ers? "Just keep putting the work in," Mack responded on the Murph & Mac show. "You know, he's a good dude. He works hard. He just has a couple of more things to learn and put the work in. And it's a credit to the other guards that it's not easy to break the starting lineup. We have a lot of depth here. "Aaron is
