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 was definitely tested," Garoppolo said of his injured thumb. "It's football. I don't know what to say. It [expletive] hurt. Sorry, but it is what it is. We got the win, and that's all that matters." It was an exciting game that fans and players will remember for a while. The 49ers won their sixth consecutive game against the Rams. "It was a special moment," Garoppolo said. "There were times on the sideline where

49ers' Deebo Samuel doesn't seem interested in conversing with Rams' Aaron Donald anytime soon

Deebo Samuel hasn't always gotten much respect from Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald, so it's not surprising he doesn't seem too eager to get to know Donald in person at some point. Donald was asked how to stop Samuel after a loss to the 49ers in 2020, to which he replied, "Who? Who's that?" Samuel responded on the field last season with 17 catches for 199 receiving yards and a touchdown in two wins over the Rams, then took a shot back at Donald via social media after the second of those two wins. With the Rams on the schedule this weekend, Samuel was asked by reporters after practice

While speaking with reporters after Sunday's playoff win, head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't sure when his San Francisco 49ers would face the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round next weekend. He does now. The NFL announced that the Packers will host the 49ers at Lambeau Field on Saturday, January 22, at 5:15 p.m. PT (8:15 p.m. ET). The game will be televised on FOX. It's a rematch of the Week 3 contest between the two teams—a 30-28 Packers victory at Levi's Stadium. "I'm ready," defensive tackle D.J. Jones said after the 49ers' 23-17 win over the Cowboys. "Not right now, but we will be. We definitely will be. They're a great team, obviously, but
