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.

George Kittle spoke with Deebo Samuel, says 49ers WR is 'in a good place'

The drama surrounding Deebo Samuel has died down a bit. Much of that is due to the San Francisco 49ers not granting his trade request ahead of the draft. By not doing so, the team declared that they believe the relationship with their do-everything wideout can be mended. George Kittle has been making the media rounds today. Of course, among the questions directed toward the All-Pro tight end involves the status of Samuel. After all, it's a storyline that dominated NFL headlines heading into the draft. "I actually talked to him a few days ago," Kittle said on The Pat McAfee Show. "Yeah, he seemed like he was in a good mood. He was hanging out with his kid, who he just had. ... I didn't ask about his contract, so we were just talking about other things,



49ers rookie OL Nick Zakelj could play center in the NFL

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability. Sixth-round selection Nick Zakelj, who will wear No. 63, spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since draft night and shared a rather interesting fact about his football childhood. Zakelj is a Cleveland native, drawing a connection to Alex Mack, whom the rookie watched while growing up. Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers. "I think definitely watching guys like Alex, especially growing up in Cleveland, being drafted, I



49ers rookie Drake Jackson ready to 'get the answers to the test' from Nick Bosa

Drake Jackson knows he's going into a great situation. Two weeks ago, the 21-year-old rookie defensive end was the first selection by the San Francisco 49ers, added during the second round. Eventually, the 49ers expect him to fill the role once envisioned for Dee Ford—a strong pass rusher opposite phenom Nick Bosa. Jackson could develop into that complementary piece for the 49ers defense. Luckily, he has a great role model in Bosa. "Watching him, the whole D-line, watching them hunt, I cannot wait to go get out there with those guys and just turn up with them," Jackson told reporters on Friday. After Jackson was drafted, Bosa was among several



PFF ranks 49ers' Nick Bosa as the best of the NFL's young rising stars

Pro Football Focus (PFF) did their annual ranking of the top 25 players under 25 entering the season, compiling a list of the many young stars that have taken over football in the past few years. With the criteria being "under 25," several players graduated from PFF's rankings last year, including 49ers' star linebacker Fred Warner, who came in as the best player under 25 on PFF's list in 2021, which was ahead of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, then-Tennessee Titans receiver A.J. Brown, and San Francisco's own Nick Bosa, who slotted in at two, three, and four, respectively on the list. In their 2022 version, PFF ranked Bosa as their best player under 25 in 2022, ahead of quarterback Justin Herbert, running back Jonathan Taylor, and most notably,
