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 GM John Lynch gives a thumbs-up to Nick Bosa's recovery but isn't certain about Dee Ford

There's good news and not-so-good news for the San Francisco 49ers on the defensive end front as the 2020 season comes to a close. No position on the San Francisco 49ers was hit harder with injuries over the course of the 2020 season than defensive end, with the absences of Nick Bosa and Dee Ford in particular resulting in a significant negative impact for the team's pass rush. But while all signs are positive in terms of Bosa being ready for the 2021 season, it sounds like things aren't as certain when it comes to Ford. 49ers general manager John Lynch discussed the current status of each player during his year-end press conference on Monday, and while his tone was upbeat about Bosa's recovery from a season-ending torn ACL, he sounded much less optimistic in

Things seemingly fell apart for the San Francisco 49ers during Week 2 of the 2020 season, when the team lost several players to injuries. That includes the season-ending ACL injury suffered by second-year defensive end Nick Bosa. "The second week of the year, we didn't have the same team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said, heading into Week 17. "I think we had a pretty unprecedented amount of injuries by Week 2. And then I thought that was rock-bottom, and it wasn't. It was the starting of about 30 other bad things that kept happening, all the way to getting kicked out of our homes by our county to come out here for a month."

Deebo Samuel doesn't like anyone suggesting Nick Bosa be part of a potential Watson-to-49ers trade

It's the offseason. So why not speculate on what it might take for the San Francisco 49ers to land disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson? One suggestion by former NFL player Ross Tucker, during an interview on 95.7 The Game, was a little too wild for a 49ers wide receiver's liking. Tucker mentioned the 49ers' young pass-rushing star after being asked if anyone is untouchable in creating a tempting enough package to acquire Watson. "I would say Nick Bosa, but if you can get Deshaun Watson, I think even Bosa is touchable," Tucker said. "I'm sure they don't want to do it, and I'm sure they'd even rather give up picks, but as great as Nick is, if you get a chance to get a top-five quarterback in the NFL, you have to do it. "So I would say
