Walsh to be honored during home opener and throughout the season

Jul 31, 2007 at 10:45 PM--


During an interview on KNBR today, John York stated that Bill Walsh will be honored during two games this season. The first will be a moment of silence during the team's preseason game against the Broncos. The second will be an event that is being coordinated with ESPN and the NFL and will take place during the team's home opener against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football.

This season, the team will wear decals honoring Bill Walsh on the helmets. Coaches will wear the same thing on their sleeves. No word on where Mike Nolan will wear his. Nolan has been allowed to wear suits during the 49ers' home games.

Today was Bill Walsh day in California. York contacted Governor Schwarzenegger yesterday and requested some way to honor Walsh. Schwarzenegger, who had met Walsh before and become a fan of the former 49ers coach, felt that it would be a great way to honor a great man.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch announced a few roster moves before a Monday afternoon press conference conducted via Zoom. One was the decision to place safety D.J. Reed on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season. The versatile defensive back suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June. "That's a tough one for us," Lynch told reporters. "The earliest we might have had D.J. back was early November. It's a four-to-six-month injury, so that's been an active conversation Kyle and myself and the medical folks have been having. Ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that may go into December. So we made that

Even his life was at risk. Surprisingly, it was reported in July that Smith had been cleared for full football activity two years after breaking his tibia and fibula during a game with Washington. Now, the former No. 1 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers may be close to realizing his dream of a miraculous comeback.
