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' third QB options for this season and beyond

Brock Purdy is now one injury away from starting. While the San Francisco 49ers have expressed a lot of confidence in the last overall pick in this year's draft, having the rookie lead a championship-caliber roster probably isn't ideal. Veteran Jimmy Garoppolo is the starter moving forward following the season-ending injury to Trey Lance, last year's No. 3 overall pick. Lance will undergo surgery today on the broken ankle suffered in the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Purdy hasn't even been active in San Francisco's two games this season. However, he may suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Denver Broncos. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted that the team would look to work out running backs after losing rookie Ty Davis-Price to a high-ankle sprain for several weeks. The team will also seek another quarterback, with Trey Lance's season over due to a broken ankle. Those weren't the only injuries from Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Tight end Tyler Kroft suffered an MCL sprain and will also miss several weeks. That prompted the 49ers to work out former North Carolina tight end Garrett Walston, who signed with San Francisco as an



Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, 49ers defense shoulder blame in loss to Broncos

The Denver Broncos offense scored only nine points against the San Francisco 49ers defense on Sunday night. The Niners offense, Jimmy Garoppolo specifically, provided two of the home team's 11 total points after the quarterback stepped out of the back of the end zone for a safety. The 49ers offense couldn't get much going with Garoppolo at the helm. The quarterback finished the game 18-of-29 for 211 yards, a touchdown, an interception, and a passer rating of 81.3 in his first start of the season. Yet, the defense accepted the blame for San Francisco's record falling to 1-2 in a game in which they were favored. "We've got to play a full four-quarter game," linebacker Fred Warner said after the 11-10 loss in Denver. "It doesn't matter how dominant we are throughout
