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.

49ers' QB1? John Lynch calls Brock Purdy the "leader in the clubhouse"

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch, speaking with reporters at the owners' meetings in Arizona on Monday morning, made it clear where Brock Purdy sits in the team's quarterback depth chart. Purdy, recovering from surgery on March 10, has earned the right to the top spot. "I think Brock has earned the right with the way he played that he's probably the leader in the clubhouse at that," Lynch said. "I'll let [head coach] Kyle [Shanahan] make those kind of decisions, but I know, when we talk, I think Brock's probably earned that right to be the guy. If we were to line up, he'd probably take that first snap." Of course, Lynch clarified that all quarterbacks—Purdy, Trey Lance, and Sam Darnold—will compete for the 49ers' starting job. However,

John Lynch made one thing very clear on Monday morning during the NFL owners' meetings in Arizona. The San Francisco 49ers like their current quarterback room, comprised of Brock Purdy, Trey Lance, and Sam Darnold. Lynch clarified one more thing: If Purdy were completely healthy and ready to play come Week 1, he would be the starter. Of course, there is so much uncertainty surrounding Purdy's health. On March 10, the quarterback underwent surgery to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow he suffered in the NFC Championship Game. His recovery is expected to go into September. Although, Lynch and the 49ers are hopeful the second-year



John Lynch explains 49ers' trade for kicker Zane Gonzalez

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers seemingly filled their kicker vacancy by trading for Zane Gonzalez, formerly of the Carolina Panthers. Robbie Gould, the team's kicker since 2017, remains a free agent. The 49ers undoubtedly wanted him back but could no longer afford to grant the 40-year-old the kind of money he sought. Is Gonzalez the answer for the 49ers? He's an answer, but not necessarily the answer in Santa Clara. "I think it's a move," 49ers general manager John Lynch told reporters on Monday during the NFL owners' meetings in Arizona. The Panthers planned to release Gonzalez, prompting Lynch to call his Panthers counterpart,
