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)

49ers-Cowboys: Everyone stepped up after Nick Bosa's injury, says D.J. Jones and Arik Armstead

It was hard to see San Francisco 49ers pass rusher Nick Bosa down on the field late in the first half of Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Everyone, including the fans, knows how much the young defensive end means to the 49ers defense. After the team lost Bosa early last season, the pass rush never really got going. Bosa was ruled out with a head injury and will likely enter the concussion protocol this week, ahead of the 49ers' next playoff game—a Divisional Round matchup against the Green Bay Packers. "We were thinking of him, and I'm happy that he'll be OK, and it's not too serious," defensive lineman Arik Armstead said after Sunday's game. "Obviously, we can't wait to get him back. He's a force for us, and I love playing alongside

Jordan Willis tells the story behind his famous blocked punt—and why it was such a twist of fate for the 49ers

The blocked punt against the Green Bay Packers that could go down as one of the biggest plays in 49ers postseason history turned out to be a product of strong execution and terrific coaching, with maybe a strange dose of luck to go along with it. 49ers defensive end Jordan Willis spoke to reporters on Thursday for the first time since his blocked punt, which was recovered by safety Talanoa Hufanga for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter of last Saturday's 13-10 Divisional Playoff win at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Willis had a number of fascinating things to say about the block, starting with the revelation that he usually wouldn't have even been lined up in that situation at all but was called upon by special teams coach Richard Hightower due to his past punt-blocking

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Divisional playoff contest against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Defensive end Nick Bosa remains in the concussion protocol, and being cleared will be a challenge due to the short week of preparation. The good news is that he returned to practice on Wednesday. Although, he was listed as a "limited" participant. Bosa was on the field with his teammates for the pre-practice walkthrough but headed to the locker room before practice started. Excellent sign as

Week 3's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers was a heartbreaker for The Faithful. The fans at Levi's Stadium watched Jimmy Garoppolo engineer a thrilling comeback touchdown drive to take the lead, only to watch Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers crush their hopes with a game-winning drive in the closing seconds. A lot has changed since that 30-28 defeat. That kicked off a four-game losing streak for the 49ers. However, San Francisco finished the season strong and made the playoffs in the final week of the regular season. Green Bay muscled its way to the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Now, we get to watch the two teams go head-to-head again, this time for the right to advance to the NFC Championship Game. "I don't think they look much
