49ers place LB Nick Bellore on IR, claim LB Carl Bradford

Dec 19, 2016 at 2:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced today that they have placed LB Nick Bellore on injured reserve, ending his season. To take his place on the roster, the team has claimed LB Carl Bradford off waivers from the Green Bay Packers.

Bellore was injured on Sunday against the Falcons. Due to a team-issued suspension of Gerald Hodges, Bellore was just one of two inside linebackers active against the Falcons. That forced S Vinnie Sunseri to replace him.

Bradford was originally drafted out of Arizona State by the Packers in the 4th round of the 2014 NFL Draft. After being inactive for all of his rookie season in 2014, he spent 2015 on the Packers' practice squad. Bradford appeared in the first four games of his career this season and had two tackles on defense and one tackle on special teams.

Bellore appeared in every game for the 49ers this season, starting ten. He had 82 tackles, four passes defended, a sack, an interception, and a fumble recovery in 2016.

Today, 49ers head coach Chip Kelly revealed that at least two other players will be lost for the season. They are WR Quinton Patton and TE Blake Bell.

Week 2 of the 2020 season was devastating for the San Francisco 49ers. The team lost several players to injuries on that MetLife Stadium field, and the depth chart never looked the same after that. Among the lost players was defensive lineman Solomon Thomas, who suffered tears to his ACL, lateral meniscus, and medial patellofemoral ligament just two plays after watching his teammate, Nick Bosa, also suffer a torn ACL. While the damage was more significant than just a torn ACL, the surgeon who repaired the damage — Dr. Neal ElAttrache — in both players' knees recently spoke with The Athletic and sounded optimistic about their



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

Defensive end Nick Bosa is in Florida working out and rehabbing from the ACL injury he sustained at MetLife Stadium during Week 2 this past season. The former No. 2 overall pick recently had a brief conversation with former ESPN reporter Josina Anderson and provided an update on his recovery. "You'll see my progress on the field next [season]," Bosa told Anderson via a phone conversation. "Tell them I'm gonna be better." I spoke w/ #49ers DL Nick Bosa (ACL) on the phone real quick before his workout in Ft Lauderdale,



Looking at the Road Ahead: Why the 49ers' quest for a sixth Super Bowl win still looks promising

When the 49ers' injury-driven 2020 season mercifully ended, the team took unwanted claim to the basement of the NFC West at 6-10 and began fielding a litany of questions about its roster future. A few of those questions have been resolved, but many more are still left open, and have become the topic of debate among both football analysts and the team's fan base. The greatest questions, of course, have revolved around whether the 49ers can ride out another year with oft-injured quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who spent much of last season either hobbled on the field or watching from the press box. The fervor over whether Garoppolo can raise his play to a level needed to win a Super Bowl has continued to escalate, making his future with the team, at least to observers, seem shaky
