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."

49ers' John Lynch: Nick Bosa is going to get better this season, Aaron Banks will become a difference-maker

Nick Bosa certainly doesn't look like he's coming off a devastating knee injury. Instead, he seems like he's picking up from where he left off during his 2019 NFL Rookie of the Year campaign. Bosa has three sacks through two games this season and is again proving to be a force on defense. And maybe we haven't seen anything yet. "Nick's just — we all know it — he's a difference-maker when he's out there," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "We missed him in a big way when he was gone last year. He's a difference-maker. I don't care who's out there. I mean, [the Packers have] got an All-Pro in David Bakhtiari, who's not playing, and Bakhtiari would have his hands full with Bosa. And that's not a slight



49ers' Nick Bosa shares thoughts on constantly being held and chipped in games

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 17-11 Sunday in a primarily defensive showdown, and star pass rusher Nick Bosa was one of the many who asserted their dominance in this game. Bosa, who had a sack last week against the Lions, worked against left tackle Jordan Mailata for the majority of the game and accumulated two sacks along with a tackle for loss Sunday. When asked about his health and response to the speed of the game, Bosa was content with his status and game plan, and will look to improve as the season progresses. "Definitely better. I thought I rushed better," Bosa said. "I think every week I'll get better. Just getting used to the flow of the game and setting things up and being smart with my rushes, and not showing



49ers-Lions: Nick Bosa, Dee Ford assess their performance in return from injury

High on the list of positives for the San Francisco 49ers in their season-opening 41-33 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday was the performance of pass rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford, who were both effective in their first games back from injuries that held them out for most of the 2020 season. Bosa, who tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 season, had four tackles, one sack, three tackles-for-loss, and two quarterback hits in the win over the Lions. Ford, who was limited to one game in 2020 due to back issues, chipped in a sack of his own and put pressure on Lions quarterback Jared Goff on more than one occasion. Both players were limited in the preseason, so it was tough to say for sure what they would do over the course of a full game. But it's safe to say the



Eagles' Nick Sirianni on 49ers' Kyle Shanahan: "He knows how to attack a defense"

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan doesn't have a relationship with his Philadelphia Eagles counterpart, Nick Sirianni, just yet. Shanahan told reporters today that the two haven't had a chance to get to know each other other than one phone call. "Seems like a hell of a guy," Shanahan said. "I really like how he's carrying himself, and you can tell his team's playing real hard, and they looked real well-coached in their first week. I know some players who know him, and they speak very highly of him." Sirianni, a first-year head coach, also spoke with reporters today. He was asked to share how watching Shanahan with San Francisco might have influenced him, directly or indirectly. Sirianni has a lot of respect for Shanahan and the way he
