Torrey Smith gives an update on his “scary” concussion

Dec 14, 2016 at 10:20 AM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith joined Murph & Mac on KNBR 680 this morning and discussed how he is feeling following the concussion that he suffered on Sunday against the New York Jets.

Smith fell to the ground while attempting to haul in a 25-yard throw by Colin Kaepernick on Sunday. He remained on the field and was immediately looked at by training and medical staff. Smith sat up and was seen talking with team staff but was then taken to the 49ers' locker room on a cart for evaluation.

Smith was asked how he was doing and how long he believes he might be out. "You just have to wait until the symptoms go down," he answered. "I still have symptoms. I don't know how long that will be, whether it's only a week or two weeks or whatever. You just never know. It's my first time ever having one like this where I just got knocked out so it was pretty bad. I don't know. Things are getting better which is a good sign."

Smith went on to say that the 49ers training staff is not rushing him back and he has a lot of respect for them. "Just take it easy and I'll come back when I'm ready," Smith said.

The concussion suffered on Sunday was the scariest of his career. "I had a mild one before," Smith said. "But I've never been knocked out before so it was pretty scary to look at that...Definitely some memory loss in there."

"I'll be fine," Smith continued after describing how scary it was for his family. "It's just one of those things. It happens. It can happen playing this game. It shows the different ways it can happen because I didn't get blasted by someone."

Smith said that the scary experience will not deter him from returning to the field. However, Smith said, "If it happens a lot, then it's not worth it."

Trent Williams calls 49ers his No. 1 destination but is curious about his free agency value

Veteran left tackle Trent Williams may be one of the San Francisco 49ers' most important offseason decisions. During last year's draft, the team traded for him as a replacement for the retired Joe Staley. William was to anchor the offensive line. Some questioned whether there would be some rust after the tackle missed all of the 2019 season. Williams finished the season as Pro Football Focus' highest-graded tackle and second-highest-graded offensive lineman. The 49ers cannot use the franchise tag on Williams. That was part of his deal's restructured final year, which was reworked following the trade from Washington to San Francisco. Now, Williams is slated to become a free agent. He would like to return to the 49ers, and the team would certainly like

"That's consistently met with other stories, but
