49ers receive approval from Santa Clara County to move forward with training camp

Jul 22, 2020 at 1:59 PM--


San Francisco 49ers rookies, quarterbacks, and injured players will report to the team's facility tomorrow for COVID-19 testing. The rest of the team will arrive next week.

After testing, players will self-quarantine and then return a few days later for another round of testing. Should both test results return negative, the players will be cleared to enter the team facility.

Santa Clara County was reviewing the 49ers' plans and protocols for conducting training camps safely amidst the pandemic, and today approved those plans, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. That means the team can move forward with its plans to prepare for the upcoming season.


"Some local officials believe the example of players wearing masks can have positive impact on the community," adds Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.


NFL Network reported on Tuesday that NFL rosters may need to be reduced to 80 players, down from the current maximum of 90. That could mean some difficult decisions for the 49ers before players are even allowed into the building.

Another significant training camp update is the elimination of preseason games in 2020. That means any final roster decisions will be based on eventual training camp practices and evaluations.

Everyone in the NFL has a tremendous amount of respect for Frank Gore. He remains a fan-favorite in the Bay Area, even this week as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to face the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Gore is in his 16th NFL season. The future Hall of Fame running back figures to be a significant part of the Jets offense this weekend with Le'Veon Bell on injured reserve. Head coach Adam Gase confirmed this week that the 37-year-old running back would start against the 49ers — the team that drafted Gore in 2005. Second-year defensive end Nick Bosa was seven years old when Gore took his first NFL snap. His defense will try to stop the veteran running back on Sunday. Bosa, now 22, was asked about Gore after Thursday's practice and whether

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

By Matt Andruscavage

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw
