49ers 2019 Training Camp: Jalen Hurd’s scuffles highlight the practice report roundup for July 28

Jul 28, 2019 at 3:58 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have completed their second of 11 training camp practices from Santa Clara. Sunday's session lasted about an hour and 45 minutes.

Quick Notes

It was rookie offensive lineman Ross Reynolds' turn to get the crowd of fans excited for the start of practice. He did so with a couple of cartwheels.

Rookie wide receiver Jalen Hurd got into a couple of in-practice scuffles. The first was with cornerback Dontae Johnson, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic, and the second with safety Antone Exum, again, per Barrows. Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Hurd punched Johnson twice in the midsection in the first instance.

"I don't like guys fighting in practice," Shanahan said on Sunday. "I don't like punches thrown. I like guys pissing each other off. I like guys competing. But I think real toughness is controlling that because you're going to get penalties in the game and things like that [...] Guys don't have to prove that they're tough by fighting people. If you're not tough, we're going to know that, so are the players, you're not going to be on this team, so that is a very silly way to prove it, especially when you have helmets on."


Guard Joshua Garnett suffered a dislocated finger during practice on Saturday. He did not practice on Sunday.

"He did that yesterday; they popped it back in," Shanahan said. "He came out today, and it popped back out, so he had to leave practice. We'll be taking a look at that."

Rookie running back Austin Walter appeared to tweak his left hamstring in warmups.

Sunday's Practice Reports

49ers camp report: Jalen Hurd mixes it up, and Kyle Shanahan likes it – to a point
Takeaways: His scuffles dominated headlines, but Hurd also caught a pass from quarterback C.J. Beathard during 11-on-11 drills. Beathard finished 4-of-8 while quarterbacks Jimmy Garoppolo was 5-of-12 and Nick Mullens was 6-of-9. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon intercepted a Garoppolo pass intended for wide receiver Dante Pettis. D.J. Reed continues to get reps at outside cornerback. Cornerback Richard Sherman looked good covering wide receiver Jordan Matthews and broke up a Garoppolo-thrown pass. Running backs Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida looked "explosive." Coleman did turn over the football, though.

49ers training camp: Highlights from Sunday's practice
Takeaways: Linebacker Kwon Alexander (ACL) feeling "legendary." He and cornerback Jason Verrett (Achilles) reacted quickly during practice. More on Hurd's fights. Defensive lineman Solomon Thomas looks great. Pettis battles Witherspoon, with each besting the other once.

Eric Brach, San Francisco Chronicle
49ers' practice report: Rookie WR Hurd ready to rumble
Takeaways: Garoppolo had two misfires while targeting wide receiver Deebo Samuel deep. Reed showing he can play outside corner, along with his kick-return ability, helps his chances to make the 53-man roster. Witherspoon had a nice practice. Stanford coach David Shaw was on hand to watch practice. Garoppolo spent time after practice working on snaps with center Ben Garland. Samuel stayed after practice to catch passes from Mullens and Beathard.

Grant Cohn, Santa Rosa Press Democrat
The good and not so good from 49ers training camp: Day 2
Takeaways: Grant lists the defense, Witherspoon, Verrett, Joe Staley, Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner, Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, and Nick Mullens among his "good" from the day. He listed Garoppolo, the offense, Hurd, Pettis, Samuel, Sherman, Alexander, Coleman, and several offensive linemen as his "bad."

Chris Biderman, Sacramento Bee
49ers practice recap: Secondary limits Garoppolo, Hurd gets into two scuffles
Takeaways: Witherspoon stood out. Sherman's break up of a Garoppolo-thrown pass was one of the best plays from the weekend. Hurd, a physical blocker, may not be endearing himself to his defensive teammates. One of Garoppolo's best passes of the day went to wide receiver Marquise Goodwin on a deep route against Sherman. Wide receiver Trent Taylor beat corner K'Waun Williams for a big gain on a slant route.

Takeaways: Buckner, Kapron Lewis-Moore and Kentavius Street also had "would-be" sacks. Coleman made several explosive runs. Alexander, Verrett, and Hurd saw full team reps for the first time during camp.


The 49ers will return to practice on Monday at 10:15 a.m., which will be the team's first padded practice.

Schefter: 49ers, NFL teams may only be allowed 75 to 80 players at training camp

By David Bonilla
Jul 3, 2020

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,

ESPN recently took a look at all 32 NFL teams and named three training camp "nuggets" for each. What did that include for the San Francisco 49ers? It all starts with the Super Bowl LIV loss in February to the Kansas City Chiefs. ESPN notes that San Francisco will try to become the third NFC team to lose the Super Bowl and return to the big game the next season. Only the 1971 Dallas Cowboys and the 1974 Vikings have accomplished that among the conference teams. Dallas ended up winning Super Bowl VI against the Miami Dolphins while Minnesota lost Super Bowl IX to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Writes ESPN: "The past few teams

George Kittle led the NFL in touchdowns nullified by a penalty in 2019, per PFF

Poor George Kittle. He could have had such a great 2019 NFL campaign. Wait a minute, Kittle hauled in 85 passes for 1,053 yards with five touchdown receptions, earning first-team All-Pro honors and his second Pro Bowl selection. It was also his second consecutive season of over 1,000 yards receiving, and the tight end is widely considered to be the best in the NFL at his position. A division championship and a trip to the Super Bowl aren't things to dismiss, either. So, why poor George Kittle? Pro Football Focus' Ian Hartitz explains that 2019 could have been even more
