49ers 7/28 practice: Trey Lance, Nick Bosa, Dee Ford hit the field

Jul 28, 2021 at 2:17 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers held their first of 13 scheduled training camp practices. Below are some practice notes from various media sources.


Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after practice that the 49ers are being careful with defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, who underwent a clean-up procedure in his knee after last season and, more recently, a minor procedure to reduce swelling. He did not participate in team drills today, and the team will continue to ease him into on-field work.

Bosa warmed up with his teammates.

He also took part in individual drills but did not participate in team drills.

Trey Lance joined his teammates on the practice field just hours after officially signing his rookie contract. For anyone still concerned about any awkwardness between starter Jimmy Garoppolo and his eventual successor, the two were seen joking with each other before practice started. (The Athletic)

Lance's first pass of team drills went off of wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk's hands on a short route in the middle of the field. The quarterback later showed off his mobility with a pass to tight end MyCole Pruitt.

Lance also impressed with a 40-yard pass to Deebo Samuel in stride while the receiver was going against cornerback Dontae Johnson during team drills. Tight end George Kittle hauled in a 30-yard pass from Lance along the sideline while going against safety Kai Nacua. (Bay Area News Group)

Third-year wide receiver Jalen Hurd, who spent the last two seasons on injured reserve, participated in individual drills. He did not participate in team drills.

Pass rusher Dee Ford, who appeared in just one game last season before suffering neck and back injuries, was on the practice field with his teammates for individual drills. He did not participate in team drills. The 49ers will continue to take a cautious approach with any ramp-up in Ford's workload, said Shanahan.

Those hoping for Aiyuk to have a breakout season will be pleased to hear that he reportedly looked good in practice. The second-year receiver made "catches all over the place," per one report. (Sacramento Bee)

Veteran wide receiver Mohamed Sanu looked as impressive as he did during organized team activities. He received praise from Shanahan and his teammates after practice. (KNBR)

49ers-Packers: Kyle Shanahan wants Trey Lance to 'let it rip' while imitating Aaron Rodgers in practice

By David Bonilla

Trey Lance has a tough task this week. No, he is not expecting to start Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. As part of the practice squad, the San Francisco 49ers rookie has to mimic future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the defense in practice. Lance's development has benefited from imitating opposing quarterbacks all season. Sometimes that is a versatile quarterback like Kyler Murray or Justin Fields. Other times, it is a more stationary passer, like Kirk Cousins. Lance studying Rodgers this week can only make him a better quarterback. "Aaron does a real good job of not making bad decisions and not turning the ball over," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters before Tuesday's practice. "But he also makes all the

49ers-Packers Injury Report: Nick Bosa returns to practice; Ailing Jimmy Garoppolo expected to play

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

49ers more excited about Trey Lance now than when they drafted him, says John Lynch

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development. On Friday morning, Lynch joined 95.7 The Game and was asked how he would evaluate the rookie's first season. "I think it's been awesome," Lynch responded. "And a lot of people, I'm sure, are like, 'Man, this guy's crazy. What do you mean? He hasn't played that much.' But we had a plan for Trey, and I think the plan was to take it week by week. And we just wanted to see constant growth and development. "The thing

Rapoport: 49ers remain committed to Trey Lance in 2022

Sunday could be quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's final game in red and gold. Of course, the San Francisco 49ers hope Garoppolo keeps playing beyond this weekend, but not necessarily beyond the playoffs. That's because most believe the team wants to transition to its No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, for 2022. "My understanding is the 49ers are still committed to first-round pick Trey Lance as their starter moving forward, which means they're expected to explore trade options for Garoppolo," Ian Rapoport said on NFL Network. "And for his part, he really seems to be soaking it in and savoring this moment. Don't take my word for it. Garoppolo actually told [The] MMQB, earlier in the week, that he thought before the last game, 'This could be
