49ers 8/23 practice: Kwon Alexander, defense impress; Three players leave with injuries; Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman sit out

Aug 23, 2020 at 12:37 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers on Sunday held their eighth practice of training camp. Below are some practice notes from various media sources.

Players have Monday off.

Three players left practice early due to injuries — wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, defensive end Dee Ford, and offensive lineman Ross Reynolds.

Reynolds was playing at center at the time and ended up being carted off the field. The other two were able to remain on the sidelines and observe the remainder of the practice.

"Hopefully, it's not as bad as it looked," said right tackle Mike McGlinchey after practice.

We await official updates from the 49ers.

49ers hope to keep Kwon Alexander off injured reserve; Kyle Shanahan provides Richard Sherman update

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to get linebacker Kwon Alexander back this season. How soon that will happen remains unclear, but head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Friday that the team isn't talking injured reserve just yet. "We don't think [injured reserve is a possibility] right now," Shanahan said. "I never like to say 'minor high-ankle sprain' because high-ankle sprains are always a big issue, but it wasn't your typical one where they for sure go on IR. That's why we haven't put him on that yet, and we're hoping to keep him off." Shanahan also provided an update on Richard Sherman, who has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. The 49ers had hoped to get him back this past weekend, but the cornerback had a setback last

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Jimmy Garoppolo would be a full participant in practice on Wednesday, indicating that the plan is for the quarterback to start on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. At least, that remains the hope. "He's ready to go out there and go today," Shanahan said. "He's still coming back from it, but I expect him to have a full practice, and I'll evaluate him out there." The coach added that he felt Garoppolo practiced well last week, and the team was confident in his health, leading to Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. "I think that's why he was able to get through most of the game, and probably could have continued to get through most of the game," Shanahan added, "but I

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 6 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was a full participant in practice for the third consecutive day and will start on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams.
