Breaking: George Kittle seemingly shoots down Sports Illustrated report that a contract extension is imminent

49ers-Buccaneers Injury Report: Jalen Hurd, Trent Taylor, and Jimmie Ward ruled out for Week 1

Sep 6, 2019 at 1:31 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 1 contest against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

On Thursday, Jimmie Ward had surgery on the broken finger he suffered during Wednesday's practice. He did not practice on Friday. Nor did wide receivers Trent Taylor (foot) or Jalen Hurd (back). We already knew Taylor would miss Sunday's game. Hurd, the 49ers' third-round draft pick, has not practiced this week and is unlikely to play.

All three have been ruled out for Sunday.

Other than that, the 49ers enter Week 1 relatively healthy. The team's two prized offseason pass-rushing acquisitions, veteran Dee Ford (knee) and rookie Nick Bosa (ankle), are expected to play.

"Yeah, he's ready to go," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday morning on KNBR. "We knew it was a tough injury. We weren't sure if we were going to get him back this week because any time you have a high-ankle (sprain), it could be anywhere from four to eight weeks. It's getting right up to four, and he's had three good practices this week, and he's ready to go."

Football Outsiders has once again taken a look at the best young players in the league who don't have a lot of playing time. The feature for ESPN casts aside first-round picks and other top prospects, and instead focuses on those who didn't receive a lot of fanfare. "This is a list of players who have a strong chance to make an impact in the NFL despite their lack of draft stock and the fact they weren't immediate NFL starters," wrote Rivers McCown. The list is a top 25 ranking, and two players represent the San Francisco 49ers. The first — 26-year-old offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill — comes in at No. 10. The

Jimmie Ward says Jason Verrett looks focused, ready, and anxious to prove himself

The San Francisco 49ers admittedly gambled on signing Jason Verrett last offseason. Why would it be a gamble to add a Pro Bowl cornerback to your defense? After being a first-round draft pick by the Chargers in 2014, Verrett had just one healthy season — that 2015 Pro Bowl year. He has landed on injured reserve in each of his other five NFL seasons, including last season with the 49ers. Verrett nearly made it back in 2019. He made one game appearance, taking part in just four defensive snaps before being sidelined for the remainder of the season. Safety Jimmie Ward knows what it's like to be plagued by injuries. He landed on injured reserve four times before last year's breakout performance in a season during which he managed to remain relatively healthy.

#PayGeorgeKittle The hashtag has taken on a life of its own on social media. San Francisco 49ers fans want to see their favorite team finally lock up popular All-Pro tight end George Kittle to a long-term contract. Agreeing on an extension remains a priority to the 49ers, even as the team shifts its focus toward training camp. Although, recent reports state that the two sides aren't "particularly close" on finalizing anything. Kittle reported to the 49ers' Santa Clara facility on Tuesday, though, for his first of two COVID-19 tests. The second will occur today. Should both come back negative, he will be allowed into the building as early as this
