Torrey Smith doesn’t commit to playing on Saturday against Rams

Dec 21, 2016 at 10:45 AM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith suffered a concussion on December 11 against the New York Jets. He entered the concussion protocol and missed this past Sunday's game against the Falcons in Atlanta. He didn't even travel with the team.

"He's in the concussion protocol," 49ers head coach Chip Kelly said this morning while addressing the media.

On the Murph & Mac show this morning on KNBR 680, Smith would not commit to playing on Christmas Eve against the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Smith discussed what it meant to be in the concussion protocol. "It just basically means that they're kind of easing you back in, in terms of physical activities," explained Smith. "It's all based on your symptoms. I'm feeling way better but there's still some issues there. And they kind of monitor it, make sure things aren't getting worse. They give you different types of tests to see how your body responds."

Smith went on to say that he has not passed those tests. "I take the test (again) later this week," he said. "So we'll see."

Smith was asked if he would play on Saturday against the Rams. "We'll see," he answered. Smith said that, even though there are only two games left in the season, that doesn't necessarily mean that he does not want to play. "My health is the most important thing," Smith continued. "I want to make sure that I'm fine to go and then I can play."

You can listen to the entire interview on KNBR 680. Smith also discussed the 49ers' shutout in the Pro Bowl.

It remains to be seen how things will play out at the quarterback position for the San Francisco 49ers in 2023, but one thing the team doesn't appear to be interested in is adding another front line veteran to the picture who is capable of excelling as a starter if things didn't work out with Brock Purdy or Trey Lance. That includes Jimmy Garoppolo, whose time with the 49ers appears to have come to an end. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the quarterback situation during his year-end press conference Wednesday, which included questions about what kind of quarterback the team might look to add in the weeks ahead. Speculation swirled recently over the possibility of the 49ers being interested in Tom Brady before he announced his retirement earlier on

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs for the second consecutive year, this time by a score of 19-12 to advance to the NFC Championship Game, where they'll face off against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The 49ers faced their share of offensive struggles, but ultimately gained enough momentum in the second half to take the lead after an early Dallas field goal, which they never gave up. Brock Purdy faced the toughest pass rush of his short NFL career, and the Cowboys brought the heat, pressuring the rookie quarterback on 48.5% of his dropbacks, which is a
