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.

"Jimmy Garoppolo appeared to have Kendrick Bourne open on deep corner. But great coverage from Ahkello Witherspoon and Jimmie Ward, ranging from deep middle, to break it up," wrote Matt Maiocco. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Richard Sherman is going through a difficult situation right now. He was arrested on Wednesday morning after allegedly crashing his vehicle, then causing a disturbance at the residence of his in-laws, and eventually resisting law enforcement.

Nick Bosa will soon go through his first practices with the San Francisco 49ers since tearing his ACL last September, but if his offseason workouts are any indication, he appears to be ready to go. Bosa's 2020 season came to an end due to the injury, which took place against the New York Jets on September 20. He's been working on rehabbing the injury since then and has made it a point over the past few months to share videos on his progress, both in a public capacity and in private with the 49ers. "The coolest thing with Nick is he's pretty good with documenting his workouts and sending them our way," 49ers general manager John Lynch said during a media session
