49ers 8/30 practice: Jimmy Garoppolo’s 5 consecutive TDs; Deebo Samuel ramping up; Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, Javon Kinlaw sidelined

Aug 30, 2020 at 12:30 PM--

Reporters were given one more opportunity to observe a full practice after Thursday's session was downgraded to a walk-through. After today, they will be limited to only the start of practice and not be allowed to observe team drills as the San Francisco 49ers begin preparations for Week 1.

Below are some practice notes from various media sources.

Did not practice:

You may have noticed that two of the 49ers' top three linebackers, Warner and Greenlaw, are on that list. Warner received a lighter-than-usual workload during Friday's practice at Levi's Stadium. Rookie Kinlaw was also among the newly sidelined players.

Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, however, said after practice that there were no injury concerns regarding Warner, Kinlaw, or Greenlaw.

Jimmy Garoppolo did what he could to make everyone forget about his three-interception performance on Wednesday. The quarterback was impressive during red-zone drills when he threw five consecutive touchdowns. Three of those scores went to running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

"Practice ends with Dante Pettis catching a 1-yard TD pass from Jimmy Garoppolo. Jerick McKinnon ran in the two-point conversion for the "winning" points and heaved the ball over the parking lot and onto the neighboring youth soccer field," wrote Matt Maiocco. (NBC Sports Bay Area)

"(JaMycal) Hasty again broke a few would-be big gains in team (drills)," wrote Nick Wagoner. (ESPN)

That's a wrap on training camp.

Fred Warner blew away the 49ers during his pre-draft visit, says Adam Peters

Linebacker Fred Warner was a pleasant surprise for San Francisco 49ers fans coming out of the 2018 draft. He immediately showed flashes of what he could be during his rookie campaign, leading the defense in tackles not only then but in each of his three NFL seasons. After spending some time with Warner, the 49ers immediately knew that he might be someone special. They were already impressed with his on-field play at BYU. What sealed the deal in their minds was getting to know the person. Once again, there won't be pre-draft visits this year. As was the case last year, all interviews will be conducted virtually over Zoom or FaceTime. It's unfortunate because those 30 allotted visits can be a great tool in evaluating an incoming rookie. Of course, given the current

According to Pro Football Reference, Fred Warner registered a team-leading and career-high 125 tackles, including five for a loss, in 2020. He added a sack, six passes defensed, two interceptions, and a forced fumble. It was enough to finally earn the San Francisco 49ers linebacker his overdue Pro Bowl and All-Pro nods. Warner has a message for fans and analysts who were impressed by the linebacker's exceptional play — "Stay tuned." Maybe we haven't seen anything yet from the young defensive star.

ESPN: It would take the 'Deshaun Watson effect' for the 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo is the most likely candidate to be San Francisco's starting quarterback in 2021, and it sounds like that's fine by the 49ers. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler recently reported that the Niners are among the teams that Deshaun Watson is "intrigued by." The quarterback wants out of Houston, but the Texans have no desire to trade him and are still hoping to reconcile their differences. Fowler added on SportsCenter this weekend that it would take a monumental opportunity, like adding Watson, for the 49ers to even consider moving on from Garoppolo. "I'm told San Fran is looking at potential upgrades, but they still like Jimmy G," Fowler said via

Florio predicts the 49ers will release Jimmy Garoppolo rather than trade or keep the QB

What will the San Francisco 49ers do with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? The simple answer is that the team will retain his services, should a perceived upgrade not present itself. If a perceived upgrade is acquired, then the team will likely try to shop the quarterback. "Most presume he'll be traded," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. "But here's the question: If the 49ers don't want to keep Garoppolo at the balance of his current contract, who would trade for the thing?" The New England Patriots would likely welcome back Garoppolo with open arms — for the right price. They have the cap space to absorb his salary.
