49ers’ C.J. Beathard strained his back trying to mimic Seahawks’ Russell Wilson during practice

Nov 8, 2019 at 3:07 PM--

Each week, it's the job of the scout team quarterback to do his best to mimic the opposing quarterback. On Thursday, that duty fell on San Francisco 49ers third-string quarterback C.J. Beathard. There's just one problem; the 49ers are going up against MVP candidate Russell Wilson on Monday night.

When you think of Beathard, a comparison to Wilson probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind. It turns out, mimicking the Seahawks quarterback can be dangerous, cornerback Richard Sherman revealed on Friday.

"C.J. strained his back doing it yesterday, so it was Nick (Mullens mimicking Wilson with the scout team) today," Sherman said while smiling. "You all can talk to C.J. about that. That was pretty funny."

Then Sherman corrected himself.

"Well, it's not funny because he hurt himself, but it was like, 'That's not your game,'" he added.

Beathard's name did not appear on Friday's injury/participation report, so it sounds like he is fine.

Sherman also discussed Wilson's impressive 2019 campaign and was asked if the quarterback looks like a league MVP to him.

"He's making great throws," Sherman said. "His receivers are catching. Him and (Tyler) Lockett have a great connection. They're doing a hell of a job. They've been efficient. They've won some close games. They've battled through, and he's been a big reason."

We don't know what practices will look like when NFL training camps kick off across the league later this month. The NFL is still trying to figure out how to take precautions and limit interactions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, it is difficult to do that and prepare for an NFL season. The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) seeks to limit activities that increase the risk of transmission of the virus, and that includes a request that there be no 11-on-11 activities during practices, according to a report from Pro Football Talk. The players union also wants to limit practices and group activities in the days leading up to games,

Arik Armstead respected Colin Kaepernick for 'putting it all on the line' during protests

Just bringing up Colin Kaepernick's name can still evoke strong emotions from different people. That difference was even more evident in 2016 when the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback started kneeling during the national anthem in protest of social injustice. A lot has changed since then. The nation has a better understanding of why Kaepernick was so passionate about the cause. It may have taken four years, and some horrific recent events, but the quarterback's message is finally getting through. More people are beginning to understand what he was trying to do back then to spread awareness, and more are now willing to listen. Kaepernick is still unemployed from football. Although, he remains active in his efforts to bring about awareness of social injustice

Raheem Mostert asking to be 49ers' highest-paid running back, per report

By David Bonilla
Jul 8, 2020

News broke on Wednesday that San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade after what his agent described as months of unproductive contract talks. Mostert is signed through the 2021 season but will earn a base salary of just $2.575 million this year. Mostert and his agent either want a new deal or want the running back to go to a team that will offer him one. What exactly is Mostert requesting from the 49ers? Is it something completely unreasonable for the team's leading rusher and the player who led all running backs in yards-per-carry last season? It doesn't sound like it. RELATED:
