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.

New Orleans Saints fans were fuming after the game. Many felt that San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa was early off the line of scrimmage on the fourth-down play that led to sack number 11.5 for the defender this season. Even Bosa wasn't sure the play would stand. "It was great. I didn't think it counted, but once I realized it did, I was pretty happy," Bosa told reporters after the 49ers' 13-0 win at Levi's Stadium. A reporter asked Bosa why he felt it might not have counted. "I thought I jumped, but I looked at it," Bosa shared. "I think it was just a good jump." That, of course, led to some laughs from the 49ers media. The talented defensive end went on to discuss the play further. "I think the tackle got off at

There are a lot of storylines surrounding the upcoming Week 13 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins. First, it features Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel going up against his former mentor, Kyle Shanahan. It will also feature running backs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. returning to Levi's Stadium for the first time. But don't discount the storyline of McDaniel being concerned about facing the 49ers defense—specifically, Nick Bosa. On Monday, the Dolphins coach was asked about his concern about game planning for the 49ers' talented pass rusher without left tackle Terron Armstead, who has been ruled out due to a pectoral injury. "If Nick Bosa has a pulse, you're concerned," McDaniel responded (h/t

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains
