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.

NFL's Racist Past Has a Part in the Jones Versus Fields Debate

By Levin T. Black

It's time to address the elephant in the room. Racism has helped Mac Jones' stock and hurt Justin Fields' in the lead-up to the draft. Yes, it really is happening. Now before you freak out, take a breath, and keep reading because I don't mean what you likely think I mean. No, I don't think draft pundits are sitting at their keyboards and purposefully finding reasons to knock Fields while talking up Jones simply because of the color of their skin. That would be what I would call blatant racism or conscious racism, if you will. Racism has more nuance than that. There is such a thing as unconscious racism and every single person in this country has acted on it at one point or another without realizing it. How? Why? Because racism has purposefully been



Russini: Patriots' interest in 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been 'consistent'

ESPN's Jordan Schultz recently reported that the New England Patriots are no longer pursuing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Of course, watching John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan being chatty with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniel at Alabama's pro day on Tuesday is enough to create more speculation. What were they discussing? Was it where they got their morning coffee? Was Belichick sharing where to obtain golfing attire? Did Garoppolo's name come up at any point during the socialization? ESPN's Dianna Russini doesn't believe that Belichick and company have given up hope of reuniting with Garoppolo in New England, especially after San Francisco



Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get



Justin Fields honored to be considered by Kyle Shanahan, 49ers

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields had an impressive throwing session during Tuesday's pro day in Columbus. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch weren't in attendance, but assistant general manager Adam Peters and a small contingent of San Francisco 49ers staff were. Shanahan and Lynch hope to catch up with Fields later. The duo was in Tuscaloosa to watch Mac Jones at Alabama's pro day. "We talked to (agent) Dave Mulugheta the other day, and he said that they'd be able to set up another [workout for Fields]," Shanahan told reporters on Monday. "That's why we chose Alabama. I'm excited to see him eventually in person. I've also got a lot
