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.

The San Francisco 49ers finished Sunday's game without two of their best defenders. Pass rusher Nick Bosa left the game at the end of the first half and was ruled out with a concussion.
