Past 24 hours have been busy for the injury plagued 49ers

Dec 20, 2016 at 11:05 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have had a busy past 24 hours. Injuries suffered during the team's 41-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday have prompted a number of roster moves. In case you haven't been around since yesterday or you missed something, here is a rundown of the moves that have been made in the past day.

Signed to Extension (1)


ILB Ray-Ray Armstrong was signed to a two-year extension on Monday. The new deal will keep Armstrong with the 49ers through the 2018 season. He suffered a pectoral tear during the second half of the 49ers' Week 2 loss to the Carolina Panthers and was placed on injured reserve on September 20.

Placed on Injured Reserve (3)


Both LB Nick Bellore (elbow) and TE Blake Bell were placed on injured reserve on Monday, ending their seasons.

WR Quinton Patton (foot) is also headed to the injured reserve list. All three were injured against the Falcons in Atlanta.

Free Agent Signings (2)


Following the announcement of Bellore being placed on injured reserve, the 49ers claimed LB Carl Bradford off waivers on Monday.

With Bell being placed on injured reserve and TE Vance McDonald already out for the season, the 49ers signed TE Jim Dray to a one-year deal.

Activated from the Practice Squad (1)


The 49ers have activated WR DeAndre Smelter from the team's practice squad. He was a fourth-round selection out of Georgia Tech in 2015.

Signed to the Practice Squad (2)


The 49ers also signed LB Brandon Chubb to the practice squad. WR DiAndre Campbell, who spent the past two offseasons with the 49ers, was also signed to the practice squad.

Signed by Another Team (1)


Preseason standout and fan favorite OLB Marcus Rush was claimed off of the 49ers' practice squad by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday morning.

Do the 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Joe Staley thinks so...and he's not alone

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been

The San Francisco 49ers have lost three consecutive games and look to turn their season around on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts. At 2-3, the team finds itself looking up at the division-leading Arizona Cardinals (6-0) and Los Angeles Rams (5-1). The Niners have lost to the Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks and have yet to play the Rams. Williams says there is no panic in the building. The team knows the locker room is talented enough to rebound on its own. "We're not waiting for somebody to walk through the door," Williams told reporters after today's practice. "We've got all the talent we need in-house. ... We've just got to put it all together on Sunday." San Francisco still has four division matchups remaining. There remains a chance



49ers-Colts: Kyle Shanahan optimistic Jimmy Garoppolo will play; Trey Lance may have to wait a week

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice. He informed the media that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be practicing but be limited. Rookie Trey Lance won't practice as he continues to recover from his injury. "It will be good to go out there and be full-go today," Shanahan said of Garoppolo. "I know he's limited because we've got to make sure he can do everything. We'll have a much better idea today, but I'm pretty optimistic about it." Garoppolo is returning from a calf injury suffered in a game against the Seattle Seahawks on October 3. Lance replaced the veteran quarterback in the game and then started the following weekend against the Arizona Cardinals, sustaining a knee sprain. The rookie quarterback's
