49ers safety Adrian Colbert and D-lineman Damontre Moore leave Broncos game due to injuries

San Francisco 49ers safety Adrian Colbert is forced to exit early in his second consecutive game.


A week after being ejected from the San Francisco 49ers' first preseason game, safety Adrian Colbert's first-half hamstring strain will keep him out for the remainder of the Niners' Monday Night Football matchup with the Denver Broncos. 49ers defensive lineman Damontre Moore will also miss the rest of the game after injuring his thumb.


Meanwhile, fellow safety Tarvarius Moore, who is competing against Colbert for the 49ers' starting free safety job while defensive back Jimmie Ward recovers from injury, has continued to play into the second half of the contest. Moore was briefly forced to leave the field after being shaken up in the third quarter, but quickly returned to action.

Moore's strong preseason play, combined with Colbert's failure to stay on the field, has given the defensive back a leg up in the competition for the team's starting role. Moore played safety in college, and after attempting to convert to cornerback last season, has moved back to his natural position in San Francisco's secondary.

The 49ers' sixth-round draft pick, cornerback Tim Harris Jr., also left the game in the second half due to a groin injury, and is questionable to return:


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Shawn Poindexter is officially questionable to return to the game after sustaining a knee injury. However, Poindexter had to be helped off the field after the play:

The San Francisco 49ers are among several (and we mean several) teams that have virtually met with Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore, per Justin Melo of The Draft Network. The others are the Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Jets — almost done here — Washington Football Team, and Los Angeles Chargers. Moore also plans to meet with the Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers in March. #Purdue WR Rondale Moore has



Bengals likely to host 49ers if NFL adds 17th game to schedules

NBC Sports' Peter King offered some scheduling insight into what will likely be a 17-game season in 2021. The NFL continues negotiations with broadcast partners on a new television deal, and the networks and league are working on the assumption that the regular season will increase by one game. Until now, there has been speculation on where those 17th games will take place. We already knew that each NFC West team would be matched up against the AFC North opponent with the same spot in its standings from this past season. That means the San Francisco 49ers taking on the last-place Cincinnati Bengals in 2021. King is hearing that the AFC will be hosting all 16 of the



Seahawks LB and impending free agent K.J. Wright sees no issues with 49ers

Seattle Seahawks fans already had to endure three years of watching cornerback Richard Sherman in red and gold, which looks less odd now than it did when he made his San Francisco 49ers debut. Could the Pacific Northwest handle another fan-favorite crossing over to the division rival? If you think the 49ers will have to do some creative maneuvering to stay under the salary cap — whatever the limit ends up being — the rest of the NFC West is in worse situations. San Francisco's over $13 million in projected cap space leads the division, per OverTheCap.com. The Arizona Cardinals look to have under $12 million, the Seattle Seahawks just over $4 million, and the Los Angeles Rams — well, they



Solomon Thomas feels blessed by 'unparalleled' love and support he's received from 49ers

Since losing his sister, Ella, to death by suicide on the morning of January 23, 2018, San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Solomon Thomas—the first draft pick of the John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era—has worked hard to spread awareness of the importance of mental health. It's a topic that other NFL stars, like Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys, have started to speak up about. "I think that is important to be vulnerable, to be genuine, and to be transparent," Prescott said in an interview last year while discussing the death of his older brother. "That goes a long way when you are a leader, and your voice is being heard by so many, and you can
