49ers-Broncos August 17 Practice Reports: Two Broncos ejected from practice after skirmish

Aug 17, 2019 at 1:05 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers participated in the last of two joint practices with the Denver Broncos at the UCHealth Training Center in Englewood, Colorado. The 49ers will hold a walkthrough on Sunday, which is closed to the media, before the two teams face each other in a preseason game at Mile High Stadium on Monday night.

Quick Notes

RB Raheem Mostert (concussion), RB Matt Breida (shoulder), and DT D.J. Jones (knee) returned to practice.

General manager John Lynch informed reporters before practice that G Mike Person suffered a foot strain on Friday and is day-to-day.

"Person made it through practice, had a little bit of a scare after," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after practice, "but with the x-rays and stuff, going well and he's day-to-day. So, scary at first, but day-to-day. It's a good sign."

While Friday's practice was lively but fight-free, Saturday's practice did have one skirmish. As a result, two Broncos players, TE Bug Howard and WR Brendan Langley, were ejected from practice. No 49ers players were disciplined.

"Looked like 49ers Marcell Harris got floored by cheap push to start rumble," Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group tweeted. "Emmanuel Moseley in vicinity with cadre of others rushing to defense."

"Yeah, they got into a little scuffle over there," Shanahan said. "I actually wasn't on the field, so I didn't see much of it. By the time I got over there, it was pretty much broken up.

"I know a couple guys got sent in. I was told none of our guys threw punches, so when I see the tape, we'll see if they were telling the truth. Hopefully, they were."


S Antone Exum is dealing with a knee sprain and is day-to-day.

Did not practice: DE Nick Bosa (ankle sprain), S Antone Exum (knee sprain), Edge Dee Ford (knee tendinitis), G Joshua Garnett (finger), TE George Kittle (calf), LB Elijah Lee (thumb), RB Jerick Mckinnon (knee), G Mike Person (foot), WR Trent Taylor (foot), CB Jason Verrett (ankle sprain), DB Jimmie Ward (collarbone), CB K'Waun Williams (knee)

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper expanded his latest mock draft to two rounds, and it features the San Francisco 49ers adding prospects on both sides of the football. The team traded from No. 12 overall to the No. 3 slot on March 26. The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to select Trevor Lawrence with the top selection, and the New York Jets are projected to add Zach Wilson at No. 2 overall. That's exactly what Kiper has the two teams doing within his mock draft, leaving San Francisco with its choice of quarterbacks in Mac Jones, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance. Kiper has the

Falcons, Patriots, Broncos to join 49ers at Trey Lance's second pro day

The San Francisco 49ers are practically running Trey Lance's second pro day, per a report on Sunday night from ESPN's Dan Graziano. Private quarterback coach John Beck, who remains close with Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan, has been working with the young quarterback for weeks at the request of San Francisco. Beck worked with Shanahan for two seasons (2010-2011) when Beck was a quarterback with the Washington Football Team and Shanahan was the offensive coordinator there. That gives him great insight into what the Niners coach is looking for in a quarterback. "I know how he's going to coach quarterbacks,"

Mock Draft Roundup: The Mac Jones-to-49ers Chatter is Deafening

The 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.

Why the 49ers should not draft Mac Jones at No. 3

By Griff Montana
Apr 8, 2021

Shockwaves reverberated around the NFL last month when the 49ers traded up with the Miami Dolphins to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. By giving away its first- and third-round picks in 2022, and another first-rounder in 2023, San Francisco made its mega move in upgrading the quarterback room for its foreseeable future. While the team has maintained a public stance of keeping current quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this coming season, this trade signified its dissatisfaction with Garoppolo's services, as the 49ers are expected to select his successor with their third overall pick in the draft at the end of this month. Most predict that the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets, who hold the first and second overall picks in this year's draft,
