49ers 8/16 practice: Jalen Hurd falls awkwardly, Brandon Aiyuk and Jimmy Garoppolo rapport, Jason Verrett and Richard Sherman switcheroo

Aug 16, 2020 at 12:34 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers on Sunday held their second practice of training camp. As will be the case for all practices, fans are not allowed to attend and the limited media in attendance must observe social distancing due to the coronavirus pandemic. That means keeping six feet away from players and staff and wearing face coverings at all times.

No face-to-face interviews are allowed as player and staff availability is done over video conference.

The 49ers have two more practices left before players are given a day off on Wednesday. Monday's session will be the first padded practice.

Below are some of Sunday's practice notes from various media sources.

Wide receiver Jalen Hurd "appeared to" injure his foot, falling awkwardly while working on a side field with a strength coach. He was down for a few minutes and then walked gingerly to the locker room, roughly an hour into practice. "Injury doesn't seem serious, but something to monitor," notes Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated. (SI, Sacramento Bee, The Athletic)

Hurd is being eased back onto the practice field after missing all of last season with a back injury and hasn't taken part in team drills.

Defensive end Nick Bosa looked as good as always, earning a would-be sack of Garoppolo and making an impression on running back Raheem Mostert. He even got the upper hand during 1-on-1s against veteran tackle Trent Williams. Williams responded well, though.

49ers WR Brandon Aiyuk says his son can be anything except a fan of this one team

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's mother is a San Francisco 49ers fan. She was a fan even before her favorite team drafted her son. "My mom has been a huge 49ers fan her whole life," Aiyuk told reporters shortly after being drafted, "so that kind of bled on me a little bit when I was younger." Aiyuk was asked if that fandom stuck with him throughout his childhood. "So, I wouldn't say a fan throughout," he responded. "I just kind of just move with players. But, definitely, when I was younger, I was rolling with the 49ers because of my mom." Aiyuk and his girlfriend, Rochelle, had a son, Braylon, in September. Now that Aiyuk is a father,

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus provided updated landing spots for the top 50 impending free agents. You might remember the analytics site predicting in January that offensive tackle Trent Williams would return to the San Francisco 49ers on a four-year, $80 million deal with $62.5 million in guarantees. Nothing has changed since then. That remains exactly what Treash predicts for Williams, who is listed as Pro Football Focus' fifth-highest ranked impending free agent. "San Francisco is going to have to work some magic this offseason," explains Treash. "They are projected to have just around $13.5 million in cap space available, but star tackle Trent Williams

Grateful Richard Sherman calls his time with 49ers 'very positive'

It's very clear that San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman expects to be with another team in 2021. He'll hit free agency in a month, and the three-time first-team All-Pro will begin his hunt for one last contract before calling it a career. "I only want to play two more (seasons)," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith last week. "I want to get on a competitive team. I think I still have a lot to give to the game. I think I still have a lot that I want to accomplish, and I think I can go out there and help a defense come together like it should, and reach their potential, reach the heights that the defenses that I've played on have
