Quinton Patton, Nick Bellore, and Blake Bell out for season

Dec 19, 2016 at 12:07 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and confirmed that three players who were injured on Sunday in the loss to the Atlanta Falcons would be done for the season.

WR Quinton Patton, LB Nick Bellore, and TE Blake Bell are the players that will miss the 49ers' remaining two games. "I know three guys that are out is Quinton Patton and Bellore and Blake Bell," Kelly said. "There's a couple of other guys we're waiting to get answers on."

A reporter asked if they were out for the season. "Yes," Kelly answered. "There's a couple of other guys that went out in the game yesterday that we haven't gotten answers on. They're actually at the doctor's now."

Kelly was asked about NT Glenn Dorsey's status. "I don't know," he answered. "I just know he didn't finish the game."

Bellore left the game with an elbow injury on the Falcons' first offensive drive of the game. Following the injury, S Vinnie Sunseri replaced Bellore.

Patton left the game with a foot injury in the second quarter and was carted to the locker room. Bell went down following a 45-yard catch in the second quarter. He was also carted to the locker room following the play.

On Sunday, the team was already without starting wide receiver Torrey Smith, who suffered a concussion the week before against the New York Jets. Patton was the team's other starting wide receiver. Due to the team-issued suspension of Gerald Hodges for violating team policy, the team entered the game in Atlanta with just two inside linebackers, one of which was Bellore. The other was Michael Wilhoite.

Kelly was asked if he plans to play Hodges against the Rams. "We'll see how the week goes," he responded.

Other injuries from Sunday included CB Jimmie Ward and C Marcus Martin.

Earlier today, Kelly was on KNBR and discussed the impact of the injuries against the Falcons. "Well, I think for the amount of guys that we had to play -- we lost eight players yesterday in the game so it was a lot of mixing and matching and just trying to make sure we get everybody on the field," Kelly said. "I think that was a little bit difficult for us."

NFL players are off until training camp begins at the end of July. However, that doesn't mean it's time for players to rest. They need to stay in shape and be ready to compete once they hit the field again. Two San Francisco 49ers players are hard at work. One is rookie quarterback Trey Lance, who is taking what he learned from the team's offseason program and honing his skills. He is working with a seasoned veteran, too. The following Instagram videos popped up of Lance tossing footballs to wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (h/t to Patrick Tulini for the



Kyle Shanahan confirms Nick Bosa rejoined his 49ers teammates this week

Pass rusher Nick Bosa rejoined his San Francisco 49ers teammates this week. He had been rehabbing and training in Florida with his brother, Joey Bosa of the Los Angeles Chargers. Joey typically passes on attending his own team's organized team activities (OTAs). Nick Bosa was never going to hit the practice field with his teammates, but the plan was always to have him around for these two weeks — the last week of OTAs and next week's three-day minicamp. "Yeah, I mean, he can't take part in much because he's still rehabbing too," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters this afternoon, "but he's been here all week, and yeah, he's been good. But he came for a shorter visit than expected." That's because Shanahan canceled the remainder of the

49ers' Fred Warner, Nick Bosa listed among PFF's top 25 players under 25

Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus created a list of the top 25 players under 25 years old, and two young defenders represent the San Francisco 49ers. All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner (age 24) tops the ranking at No. 1 overall. "At a position that has become ever-more difficult to play, given how good NFL offenses have become at attacking defensive weaknesses, Warner has become arguably the game's best linebacker," wrote Monson. "The former third-round pick earned a PFF coverage grade of 91.1 in 2020, allowing a passer rating of just 81.9 into his coverage, some 25 points lower than the average at the position." San Francisco made Warner a third-round selection out of BYU in
