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."

Simms can't envision a 49ers trade scenario involving Nick Bosa

Chris Simms conducted an ask-me-anything version of his podcast, Chris Simms Unbuttoned, and spent a good deal of time discussing quarterback Deshaun Watson and his situation with the Houston Texans. Watson wants out, but the Texans want to repair the estranged relationship. There would be high demand if Watson were actually able to force a trade. His no-trade clause means that he would have a lot of say in any potential destination. It's not a stretch to believe that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan might be intrigued by the possibility of adding a talent like Watson to his offense. Of course, there is no urgency on the part of the 49ers, as they have made it clear they are pleased to move forward with Jimmy Garoppolo. San Francisco has

Kyle Juszczyk talks free agency, says 49ers teammates are reaching out

Kyle Juszczyk is just a couple of weeks away from hitting free agency, and from the discussion on Monday's The Pat McAfee Show, it sounds like the San Francisco 49ers fullback believes he will get to test the market. This is the second time Juszczyk will be a free agent. He signed a four-year, $21 million deal with the 49ers in 2017 after four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. "Honestly, there really is so much that goes into it," Juszczyk told Pat McAfee. "Money, without a doubt, is one of the biggest things. I'm not going to be the guy that sits here and tells you that no, money doesn't matter because this is life, man. It's a business. Money is probably the No. 1 factor, but it's not the only factor. There's a lot. "Things like, can this
