49ers 2019 Training Camp: Jerick McKinnon’s return highlights practice report roundup for August 6

Aug 6, 2019 at 4:56 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have completed their ninth of 11 training camp practices from Santa Clara. The Tuesday session lasted nearly an hour and 50 minutes.

Quick Notes

49ers players returned to practice after having Monday off.

The 49ers officially activated RB Jerick McKinnon from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list before practice. He will be eased back into practice so don't expect to see him full-go just yet.

Taking the Rookie Hype Machine to the next level, QB Wilton Speight and WR Shawn Poindexter did this:

QB Jimmy Garoppolo's interception-free streak during team drills finally ended. CB Ahkello Witherspoon got the pick on a pass intended for WR Kendrick Bourne. Garoppolo threw an estimated 130 passes during team drills before his first interception.

"Ahkello Witherspoon plucks ball just before it hits ground after it ricocheted off an open Kendrick Bourne," wrote Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group via Twitter.


Did not practice/new injuries: CB K'Waun Williams (knee), LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring tightness), Jamell Garcia-Williams (concussion)

Still out: Edge Dee Ford (knee tendinitis), G Joshua Garnett (finger), RB Jeff Wilson (calf)

Vet day off: G Mike Person

PUP: TE Garrett Celek (back, concussion), C Weston Richburg (knee)

Tuesday's Practice Reports

The following are in the order in which they were posted. It looks like a small sample size for Tuesday.

Eric Branch, San Francisco Chronicle
49ers' practice report: WRs can't grasp opportunity
Takeaways: It wasn't a good day for receivers. First, you have the Witherspoon interception off a near-catch by Bourne. WR Dante Pettis had a C.J. Beathard-thrown ball ripped from his grasp by CB Greg Mabin. WR Deebo Samuel dropped a "perfect pass" from Nick Mullens. TE Ross Dwelley also had a drop that could have been a long touchdown. Garoppolo was 9-of-13 passing, plus his interception. WR Trent Taylor caught a scoring pass from Mullens after blown coverage. DL Arik Armstead stopped RB Tevin Coleman in the backfield. LB Kwon Alexander forced a fumble.

49ers camp report: Nick Bosa still impressing, Jerick McKinnon off PUP list
Takeaways: As the article title states, Bosa continues to impress. There were several dropped passes as well as pre-snap penalties. Dwelley caught a nice pass from Garoppolo and got 40 yards downfield before Richard Sherman caught up to him. Samuel flashed in one-on-one end-zone drills.

Keiana Martin,
12 Observations from 49ers 2019 Training Camp: Aug 6
Takeaways: Receivers and cornerbacks were evenly matched during red zone one-on-one work. Sherman dominated the exercise and did not allow a reception. Bourne found the end zone in each of his reps. Samuel also excelled. Bosa had a would-be sack while he and DeForest Buckner had several pressures. DT Sheldon Day batted down a pass and had a run stop behind the line of scrimmage. LB Mark Nzeocha had a run stop.


The 49ers will return to practice on Wednesday at 10:15 a.m.

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

By David Bonilla

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
