49ers 2019 Training Camp: Red-zone focus, injury notes highlight practice report roundup for August 1

Aug 1, 2019 at 4:28 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have completed their fifth of 11 training camp practices from Santa Clara. The Thursday session lasted about an hour and 40 minutes.

Quick Notes

Thursday was the first practice with an emphasis on red-zone drills, and the offense and defense seemed more evenly matched than some previous practices.


Defensive end Kapron Lewis-Moore sustained a "groin-type injury," according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Defensive tackle DeForest Buckner did not practice due to a mild toe strain.

Pass rusher Dee Ford (knee tendinitis) did not participate in team drills.

"Talking to him, it doesn't seem like cause for concern," Shanahan told reporters about Ford. "You can tell when you talk to a player, and he says it just happens about every camp."

Guard Joshua Garnett (finger) and running back Jeff Wilson (calf) continue to miss practice. Garnett had surgery on his finger this week and is expected to miss about three weeks. Wilson will miss one to two weeks, said Shanahan.

Running back Jerick McKinnon, center Weston Richburg, and tight end Garrett Celek remain on the PUP list.

Offensive lineman Mike Person had a veteran day off.

49ers Practice recap: Kendrick Bourne shines as red zone drills highlight Thursday
Takeaways: Kendrick Bourne has had a strong camp with Thursday being his best showing. He had three touchdown receptions during one-on-one drills. One on a Garoppolo-thrown pass and two from Nick Mullens. Bourne added two more during team drills. Sheldon Day filled in for Buckner at the 3-technique spot, and was disruptive. Rookie punter Mitch Wishnowski continues to look impressive with his air times in the 4.3- to 5.12-second range. Richard Sherman was frustrated after allowing Pettis to haul in a pass while keeping his feet in bounds.
