49ers 8/25 practice: Jordan Reed, D.J. Jones full-go as Bosa, Ford, Aiyuk are sidelined

Aug 25, 2020 at 12:54 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers returned to the practice field on Tuesday after having Monday off. The session was their ninth of training camp. Below are some practice notes from various media sources.



Defensive ends Nick Bosa (leg) and Dee Ford (calf), along with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) and tight end Ross Dwelley (foot), did not practice. Ford and Aiyuk left practice on Sunday due to injuries. Defensive tackle D.J. Jones, however, returned to practice. (The Athletic)

Jones is out of the concussion protocol.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan provided several injury updates on many of the players listed above. Aiyuk suffered a mild hamstring strain and is week-to-week. Bosa sustained a muscle strain in his leg and is week-to-week. Ford suffered a calf irritation and is day-to-day.

Cornerback K'Waun Williams, center Ben Garland (ankle), and offensive lineman Ross Reynolds (knee) also did not practice. Reynolds was carted off the practice field on Sunday. Tight end Jordan Reed was in pads and practiced for the first time. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Running back Raheem Mostert received a veteran day off.

Reed had a dominant outing during 1-on-1 drills. "Jordan Reed just took part in his first 1-on-1 drills of camp. He went 4-4 vs SF's safeties, including two catches vs. Jaquiski Tartt, which is no easy feat," wrote Matt Barrows. (The Athletic)


"Reed also made a nice catch over the middle in 11 on 11s and George Kittle had a potential 70-ish yard TD, besting Johnathan Cyprien down the right sideline and cutting inside against Tarvarius Moore. Unclear if Moore, who might be the #49ers' fastest player, would've caught him," wrote Jake Hutchinson. (KNBR)

Quarterback C.J. Beathard threw a 35-yard pass along the right sideline to tight end George Kittle, who was working against safeties Tarvarius Moore and Johnathan Cyprien. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

"Craziest play of #49ers practice: Nick Mullens overthrew Dante Pettis over middle, Pettis tried to prevent INT, ricocheted to D.J. Jones for the INT, who hauled towards the end zone. Then Jeff Wilson Jr. chased him down and stripped the ball from Jones for a fumble," wrote Hutchinson. (KNBR)

Fullback Josh Hokit "absolutely bulldozed" linebacker Kwon Alexander on the way to the end zone after hauling in a Jimmy Garoppolo pass during 11-on-11. (KNBR)

Wide receivers Tavon Austin and J.J. Nelson were very active, with each catching multiple passes during 11-on-11 drills. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Defensive lineman Solomon Thomas was back getting some work on the outside due to Bosa and Ford being sidelined. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said on Sunday that the 49ers hope Thomas "stays inside at all costs."

Safety Johnathan Cyprien intercepted his second pass of training camp. He hauled in a deep Beathard-thrown football after cornerback Emmanuel Moseley broke it up while going against wide receiver Dante Pettis. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon had a strong practice, breaking up at least a couple of passes. (NBC Sports Bay Area, Sacramento Bee)

"Some really strong pass rush reps from DL Arik Armstead today against Tom Compton. Armstead appears to be settled in after missing first four practice with back tightness," wrote Nick Wagoner. (ESPN)

Jeremiah on 49ers' pick in latest mock draft: 'I am surprised that everything you hear points toward Jones'

With so many smokescreens and teams keeping their strategies close to the vest, it's tough to believe anything you hear when it comes to pre-draft rumors and speculation. Everyone in the media feels the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, whether they can make sense of it or not. Much of that is based on what they hear from around the league. Their colleagues and other teams feel Jones might be the pick, despite the overwhelming opinion that the selection would be a reach. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks doesn't even view Jones as worthy of a first-round pick, much less No. 3 overall. "Perhaps the Alabama quarterback is a secret member of The Avengers, operating like Tony Stark as Iron Man,"



Tannenbaum sees Mac Jones as 'very similar' to Matt Ryan, has QB to 49ers in mock draft

Yet another mock draft has the San Francisco 49ers selecting former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones with the No. 3 overall pick. This one from ESPN's Mike Tannenbaum is a bit different, though. While some analysts feel that Jones-to-49ers is the most likely scenario, many feel that the selection would be a reach, especially with potentially higher-ceiling prospects Justin Fields and Trey Lance likely to still be on the board. The latest ESPN mock draft has Tannenbaum, a former NFL executive, playing the role of general manager for all 32 teams and choosing the players he feels are the best fit for



Neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked Nick Saban about Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick, at pro day

File this under interesting pre-draft tidbits. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan were in attendance for Alabama's pro day last week. That made headlines because the duo opted to watch quarterback Mac Jones rather than attend Ohio State's pro day to watch Justin Fields. Paired with Chris Simms' speculation that San Francisco might have traded up to the No. 3 spot for Jones, that spurred others to seriously consider a Jones-to-49ers scenario. Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently joined the Dan Patrick Show and shared that neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked him anything about his former quarterback, who helped guide the Crimson Tide to a national championship. And it wasn't because they didn't have an opportunity to do



Adam Schefter convinced 49ers draft Mac Jones, hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo

Adam Schefter joined ESPN radio on Tuesday morning and voiced his opinion on who the San Francisco 49ers will select with the No. 3 overall pick on April 29. Much of the media predicts that player to be former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, and Schefter sees that as the most likely outcome, too. "Oh, it'll be Mac Jones," Schefter responded when asked for his prediction. What does that mean for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have stated remains in the team's plans for 2021? The 49ers view themselves as contenders and don't want to throw in a rookie to lead the offense. Garoppolo is familiar with the playbook, and his teammates trust him. With next year's rookie quarterback class not expected to
