Former Titans OT Byron Bell visited the 49ers over the weekend

Former Tennessee Titans OT Byron Bell visited with the San Francisco 49ers over the weekend, per Field Yates of ESPN.


As Yates points out, Bell missed the 2016 season after dislocating his ankle during organized team activities in May.

"[Bell] has really had a great offseason" Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said following the injury. "He's really worked hard. That's the first thing he said, 'I've worked so hard to have it end like this.' Those are the kinds of injuries that are going to happen in this game. It's unfortunate for him and unfortunate for us. He's a good football player, and we're going to miss him."

Bell, who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Carolina Panthers out of New Mexico in 2011, started all 16 games for the Titans in 2015. The offensive lineman has played in 78 regular season games over his career, starting 72.

Jimmy Garoppolo is recovering from yet another injury. Luckily for him, this latest setback won't cost him too much playing time. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback exited the October 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks with a calf injury. By the end of halftime, he couldn't put much pressure on the leg. Garoppolo missed the second half of that game and all of the next game — a Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He returned to the practice field on Monday. The quarterback will be on the field with his teammates today but will be limited, per head coach Kyle Shanahan. Everything points toward Garoppolo being ready to go for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, assuming no setbacks. Will he be at 100 percent, though, by kickoff? "I'm



Kyle Shanahan explains why the 49ers can't always rely on Trey Lance's ability to improvise

San Francisco 49ers fans are excited about the possibilities of Kyle Shanahan utilizing his young athletic quarterback, Trey Lance. The head coach believes his rookie star-in-the-making has the potential not only to hurt an opposing defense with his arm but also to frustrate an opponent with his legs. However, that's not something on which Shanahan and the 49ers want to rely. "Any time you can have a guy create an off-schedule play and buy more time, that's great," Shanahan explained. "When you can run around, and people are playing soft zones, I mean, those only can hold up so long. But that starts turning into a little bit of backyard ball. "When you get into some of those situations, sometimes it's late in games, you're down a lot, and you can

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Today's practice report looked very much like what head coach Kyle Shanahan previewed beforehand. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo, as the quarterback continues to recover from a calf injury. "I mean, it could go up to game time," Garoppolo said before practice about Sunday's game status. "We've done it before up to game time. And it's really just about getting the mental reps while I can out there today, see where I'm at tomorrow and everything." There was no Trent Williams, who, like Garoppolo, was injured this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco continues to be cautious
