49ers-Rams Injury Report: Tartt and Ward appear on track to play

Sep 19, 2017 at 6:29 PM--

San Francisco 49ers safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward both practiced on Tuesday as the team prepares for its Thursday night matchup against the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium. That news is significant because Tartt was held out of practice on Monday with a neck injury. The two safeties were limited during Tuesday's practice.

Sunday in Seattle was Ward's first in-game action of the season. He has been recovering from a hamstring injury that forced him to miss training camp, preseason, the regular-season opener, and limited him during Monday's practice.

Eric Reid is recovering from a PCL injury to his left knee and will miss Thursday's game and likely more, which means Tartt and Ward are the likely starting safeties for the 49ers when they host the Rams.

Linebacker Reuben Foster continues to be held out of practice as he recovers from the high-ankle sprain suffered during Week 1. The good news for Foster is that he was seen walking around the 49ers facility on Tuesday without an orthopedic boot on his right foot. He is unlikely to play on Thursday. After that, the 49ers will have 10 days until their next game – an October 1 road game against the Arizona Cardinals.

49ers DB Jimmie Ward not surprised Frank Gore still going strong at age 37

There's probably a number of people who never expected to see New York Jets running back Frank Gore still going strong in the NFL at age 37, but his former teammate Jimmie Ward isn't one of them. Ward is one of three current 49ers players who were on the roster when Gore was last with the team in 2014, with long snapper Kyle Nelson and cornerback Dontae Johnson being the others. Gore was a model of consistency back then, having rushed for over 1,000 yards in eight of nine seasons going back to 2006, and had just wrapped up a season of 1,106 yards and four touchdowns when he and the 49ers didn't come to terms on a new contract after the 2014 season. Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so

Jimmie Ward is glad the San Francisco 49ers aren't moving him around from position to position anymore. While he always tried to be a team player, he felt the most comfortable at safety, and that's where he's at now. "I've been playing [safety] since high school," Ward said on Wednesday during a conversation with Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky on 95.7 The Game. "I ended up figuring out I could play nickel once I got to college, and I guess coaches just, how my body type (is), and how fluent my hips are, they wanted to make me into a corner. But I was real passionate about safety because I just liked the physicality part of just being a safety." The 49ers re-signed Ward to a three-year, $28.5 million deal this offseason. The safety said he
