49ers 8/26 practice: Garoppolo throws 3 INTs, Kinlaw scuffle, Reed impresses, Sherman injury scare

Aug 26, 2020 at 12:17 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday held their 10th practice of training camp. Below are some practice notes from various media sources.

First, some participation updates.

Did not practice:

Others rehabbing:

  • DE Ronald Blair (knee)
  • WR Richie James Jr. (wrist)
  • C Weston Richburg (knee)
  • WR Deebo Samuel (foot)
  • DE Jullian Taylor (knee)

Samuel was seen sprinting during the early portion of practice. Chris Biderman wrote that he "looks close to 100 percent," and that he appeared to be moving well. (Sacramento Bee)

Tight end Jordan Reed continues to impress in 1-on-1 drills. He had a good session going against safety Jaquiski Tartt and hauled in a pair of passes. Fullback Josh Hokit, along with running backs Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty, had deep grabs while safety Jimmie Ward broke up a pass. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

The 49ers had what Matt Barrows described as a "short-lived but intense scuffle" between offensive lineman Justin Skule and rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw with tackle Jaryd Jones-Smith coming to the former's aid. "Helmets were ripped off," wrote Barrows. (The Athletic)

Head coach Kyle Shanahan last week shared his perspective on these types of skirmishes.

"You should always hit a guy back if he hits you, but not on the football field," Shanahan said. "We're playing a sport. We're trying to egg those guys on. We're trying to get them to punch us in our helmet with the face mask on so they can hurt their hand, and we can smile as they get escorted off the field by a ref."

Linebacker Fred Warner also got into it a bit with running back Raheem Mostert. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw three interceptions — two off tips — during red-zone drills. One of the interceptions was hauled in by cornerback Richard Sherman and returned over 90 yards for a would-be score. Defensive end Arik Armstead caused the pressure on the play. Safety Jonathan Cyprien and Kinlaw had the other interceptions. (The Athletic, Sacramento Bee, San Francisco Chronicle)

Said David Lombardi of Kinlaw's interception: "It looked like D.J. Jones tipped Garoppolo's pass on the line and Kinlaw was impressive on the return. He even made a sharp cut." (The Athletic)

Garoppolo, of course, made headlines after throwing five consecutive interceptions during an August 14, 2019 practice.

Sherman had a bit of an injury scare early in practice but was fine. That was before his interception. (Bay Area News Group)

"Everyone's heart in 49ers secondary skipped a beat when Richard Sherman grabbed back of left lower leg in individual drill. After a while, he got up put sock and shoe back on and practiced," wrote Matt Maiocco. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

Practice finished with wide receiver Dante Pettis making a physical catch over the middle with cornerback Emmanuel Moseley in tight coverage. (The Athletic)

Pettis had three catches on the final drive of practice. (KNBR)

Tight end George Kittle worked with a trainer on a side field for the final 30 minutes of practice. No one seems too concerned, though, and the 49ers say there are no injury updates. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel is not a fortune teller. However, he did peer into the crystal ball while speaking with reporters before Wednesday's practice. The 49ers are preparing to face their next playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers—at Lambeau Field. However, their quarterback is banged up. Jimmy Garoppolo has been playing through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. Then he suffered a right shoulder sprain during Sunday's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. For a right-handed quarterback, that is problematic. Garoppolo is still expected to start against the Packers.
