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

Did not practice:

  • DE Samson Ebukam (leg)
  • TE MyCole Pruitt (calf)

Linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair left practice during team drills with what appeared to be a right knee injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after practice that the preliminary examinations have the team "pretty optimistic" about the injury, though.

Samson Ebukam received the day off after experiencing some leg soreness. Cornerback Tim Harris left practice due to some "tightness" in his leg. The coaches had him sit out team drills as a precaution. The defender watched the rest of practice from the sideline with his left leg in a wrap.

After missing the last two practices, third-year wide receiver Jalen Hurd, who has yet to step on the field for a regular-season game, returned to practice.

Tight end George Kittle returned after enjoying Saturday off. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw also returned after being sidelined due to a blister on his foot.

David Shaw and the rest of the Stanford coaching staff were on hand to observe today's practice as guests of the team. The 49ers also have an official NFL referee crew at practices this week.

Before practice, it was rookie offensive lineman Jaylon Moore's turn to hype up the fans in attendance.

After being limited during previous practices, second-year defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw got involved in team drills for the first time during training camp. The team was being careful with the big defender as he came off a recent procedure on his knee. (San Francisco Chronicle)

Kinlaw made a point last week to clarify his status. "I have no injury," he shared via Instagram.

QB watch

Trey Lance's first reps of team drills, once again, showed off his mobility. He started with a read-option followed by a designed rollout with a run option. (The Athletic)

Lance's first three plays during red zone drills all resulted in touchdowns. The first two were passes to fullback Josh Hokit and wide receiver Mohamed Sanu. The third was a touchdown run. (Sacramento Bee)

Hokit wasn't the only fullback to haul in a touchdown pass. Later, Kyle Juszczyk got into the end zone on a pass from Jimmy Garoppolo. (The Athletic)

Linebacker Fred Warner had an interception off Garoppolo for the second consecutive practice. This time, it was on a shorter pass in the red zone. "QB tried to feather ball to Ross Dwelley but ball was short and Warner jumped up and had another easy pick," wrote Matt Barrows. (The Athletic)

Lance also threw an interception during team drills. It was his first of training camp. "LB Jonas Griffith with a leaping grab at the goal line in red-zone drills," wrote Chris Biderman. (Sacramento Bee)

Lance's next pass was an overthrow toward Kittle. He finished 7-of-11 passing during team drills. Garoppolo tossed touchdown passes to wide receivers Sanu and Kevin White, finishing the day 13-of-18 during team drills. (Bay Area News Group)

Other notes

While Griffith hauled in Lance's first interception of training camp, it is worth noting that the linebacker nearly had one on a similar pass during last Friday's outing.

Shanahan discussed Ford's return to team drills.

"It was the schedule," the coach said after practice. "You map it out for everybody, and you hope it goes that way. You do one day at a time. We talked to him about it yesterday on the day off, and he came in this morning, that was the plan, and he stuck with it. And I think he got about six reps out there today. It was nice. I didn't realize he was out there. I was looking downfield, but I felt him off the edge go right by me."

On one snap, offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey stopped Ford with a hard shove to his back. No issues resulted. That is a good sign that Ford's injuries woes may finally be behind him. The defender appeared in six snaps and jumped offsides twice as he works to get used to going at full speed again. (San Francisco Chronicle)

49ers' Kyle Shanahan, Fred Warner praise Deion Sanders for start at Colorado

The San Francisco 49ers have been a frontline story in the NFL two weeks in, starting off the season 2-0, showcasing their top units on both sides of the ball. But, they're not the only ones showing out, and the NFL isn't the only football league in the spotlight right now. Instead, you could argue that the most popular football team in the country isn't even in the NFL... That moniker goes to the University of Colorado Buffaloes and new head coach Deion Sanders, who have flourished early in Year 1 of the new regime, finding themselves within the AP Top 25 for the third consecutive week. Despite the difference in league, the 49ers are definitely paying attention to what Sanders is building at Colorado, so much so that the entire team was

The San Francisco 49ers have now won 12 consecutive regular-season games, just three games shy of tying the 15-game record set between the 1989 and 1990 seasons. Sunday's 30-23 win against the Los Angeles Rams may not have been the prettiest of victories, but Kyle Shanahan's squad improved to 2-0 on the season and sit alone atop the NFC West. The 49ers managed to beat their division rival despite quarterback Brock Purdy having arguably his most unimpressive game as a starter. He finished the game 17-of-25 for 206 yards and a passer rating of 93.1, a new regular-season career-low as a starter. Meanwhile, running back Christian McCaffrey leads the NFL with 268 rushing yards and ranks second only to wide receiver Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings in
