49ers-Rams Injury Report: Torrey Smith, Joe Staley don’t practice; Goff does for Rams

Dec 21, 2016 at 2:41 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have a short week this week as the team prepares to face the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, which also happens to be Christmas Eve.

"[Torrey Smith is] in the concussion protocol," 49ers head coach Chip Kelly said this morning while addressing the media. Smith suffered a concussion on December 11 against the New York Jets and missed the team's game this past Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

"I'm feeling way better but there's still some issues there," Smith said on KNBR 680 this morning. He said that he has not yet passed the tests necessary to move on from the concussion protocol and would not commit to playing on Saturday.

"I take the test (again) later this week," Smith said. "So we'll see." The 49ers only have two games remaining on their schedule. After playing the Rams, the team will host the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium in their season finale.

The 49ers are also without WR Quinton Patton, who broke his foot on Sunday against the Falcons. He, along with LB Nick Bellore, TE Blake Bell, and CB Jimmie Ward, was placed on injured reserve this week.

OT Joe Staley, who has been dealing with a hamstring issue, did not practice. Staley has missed the 49ers' last two games. This morning, Kelly was asked why Staley is not on injured reserve. "Because there's a hope that Joe can continue to play this year," Kelly answered.

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off a three-day rookie minicamp this afternoon.

49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10

Bleacher Report identifies 49ers' biggest remaining need

By David Bonilla
May 16

The San Francisco 49ers did what they could to address offseason needs. They signed Charvarius Ward and drafted two cornerbacks to bolster that position. In addition, they hope to have found a replacement for Dee Ford in second-round draft pick Drake Jackson. There remains uncertainty about who will be playing alongside Jimmie Ward at safety, but the team has options. While the 49ers drafted two offensive linemen—Spencer Burford and Nick Zakelj—the interior of that line is among the team's most prominent question marks heading into the 2022 season. It will be tough to replace Laken Tomlinson, who is now with the New York Jets. Also, Tom Compton left for the Denver Broncos after just two seasons with the 49ers.
