49ers-Rams Injury Report: Smith, Staley, Johnson, Martin don’t practice

Dec 22, 2016 at 2:12 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers had a short week this week to prepare to play the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday.

WR Torrey Smith remains in the concussion protocol and has not practiced over the past two weeks. He suffered the 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 on Wednesday. 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 will be without their other starting wide receiver, Quinton Patton, who broke his foot on Sunday against the Falcons and was placed on injured reserve.

OT Joe Staley, who has been dealing with a hamstring issue, missed yet another practice. The 49ers' best offensive lineman has missed the team's last two games. On Wednesday, 49ers head coach Chip Kelly stated that Staley has not been placed on injured reserve because there is still hope that he can play this year. The 49ers currently have 16 players on injured reserve.

CB Dontae Johnson and C Marcus Martin also did not practice today.

Below are the Thursday practice participation reports for both the 49ers and the Rams.

Breer: Don't buy the pre-draft hype; 49ers keeping QB evaluations 'close to the vest'

Mac Jones to the San Francisco 49ers is a done deal, right? That's what every analyst and evaluator would have you believe. Much of that originated from NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, a close friend of head coach Kyle Shanahan, stating that he believes the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot to draft Jones. Shanahan debunked that last week. Not the idea that Jones might be the pick, but that Simms might have some insight into the team's plans. "Trust me, Chris talks about everything," Shanahan said. "Therefore, I haven't been able to talk to him in a couple of years. Anyone who you're friends with who speaks in the media, and people think you're friends with them, that means you're not allowed to tell them anything. That's why he doesn't even ask me stuff.

Rams' Sean McVay believes 49ers are confident in their draft strategy

The San Francisco 49ers' move up nine spots from the No. 12 overall pick last month sent shockwaves across the NFL. News of the blockbuster move broke during Zach Wilson's pro day, taking a little away from the event as everyone tried to wrap their heads around the impact — not just on the draft but on the NFC West and NFL landscape for years to come. The move up to the No. 3 spot leaves San Francisco without a first-round pick in each of the next two years. Someone who knows a thing or two about building a roster without first-round picks is the coach of the NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams — Sean McVay. McVay and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan are close friends, but you can bet the Rams coach is being kept in the dark about the Bay Area team's

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards



Report: Trey Lance started working with John Beck at 49ers' request

Private coach John Beck, a former NFL quarterback who played for then-offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Washington, worked with quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State this offseason. Beck remains close with Shanahan, and has been working with quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in recent weeks. That is no coincidence. Fields and Lance are among the most likely prospects to be selected No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that Lance has been working with Beck at the Niners' request. San Francisco provided Beck with a list of drills they wanted to see from Lance, which means they were heavily involved in the planning of Monday's
