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.

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the

Last week, the San Francisco 49ers made Thomas a third-round draft pick. He was the first defender selected by the team in this year's draft. Ambry appeared in 12 games as a junior in 2019, recording 38 tackles, three tackles for a loss, three interceptions, and three passes defensed. He joined 95.7 The Game on Thursday morning to share what he brings to the 49ers defense and how he labels his style of play. "I'm a straight man corner, honestly," Thomas said on the Morning Roast.
