Jimmie Ward out 1-2 weeks with quad injury, Elijah Mitchell dealing with rib injury, other updates

Nov 1, 2021 at 3:41 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and said that safety Jimmie Ward suffered a quad injury during Sunday's victory over the Chicago Bears. He is expected to miss one to two weeks. Shanahan noted that there is an "outside chance" Ward could play this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals, but it isn't likely.

"I think it was like a Grade 1 quad strain," Shanahan said. "It happened ... I think it was the beginning of the fourth quarter. Maybe slightly at the end of the third."

Ward suffered his injury late during Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Tavon Wilson replaced him. The 49ers were already without their other starting safety, Jaquiski Tartt. He was placed on injured reserve over the weekend due to a knee injury.

Shanahan added that running back Elijah Mitchell suffered a rib injury and will be limited this week. However, the coach didn't sound too concerned about the injury.

Safety Kai Nacua is dealing with a hamstring injury and will miss multiple weeks.

The 49ers will continue to manage tackle Trent Williams' (ankle, elbow) and wide receiver Deebo Samuel's (calf) injuries. That could mean one or both may be limited for practices this week.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell feeling good physically as season two approaches

After a rookie season full of bumps and bruises and a procedure on his knee in the spring, 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell seems to be in a good place as training camp proceeds. Mitchell set a franchise rushing record for a rookie player in 2021 (963 yards), even though injuries limited him to 11 games. In April, Mitchell had a clean-up procedure on his knee, but he's been participating in drills at training camp and has been moving in the right direction as he gets back to full health. "He has looked good," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday,



49ers' Kyle Shanahan looking to ramp up practice workload for healthier Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell's 963 rushing yards last season set a San Francisco 49ers franchise record for the most by a rookie. But, how he accomplished the feat is even more impressive. Mitchell was never completely healthy for most of the season, dealing with shoulder, rib, finger, and knee injuries. In April, Mitchell underwent a clean-up procedure on his knee. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't about to throw a full workload on the second-year running back. He knows how important Mitchell is to the success of the upcoming season. "Elijah's just getting back healthy," Shanahan told reporters before Monday's practice. "We didn't get him in OTAs. He did a lot of good things last year, but he was also banged up throughout the year. So Elijah is just trying to get back to [100

The San Francisco 49ers will be without their big offseason acquisition, cornerback Charvarius Ward, for a couple of weeks. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who joined KNBR on Wednesday morning, Ward is dealing with a muscle strain and will miss some time ahead of the regular season. "He had a little setback here with a muscle strain, so he'll be out here for the next probably two weeks or so," Shanahan said on the Murph & Mac show. "But he's gotten enough baseline in to where his camp has been perfect. At least now I know he's not going to get a serious injury here in the next two weeks, and he'll be ready to go here Week 1, though." San Francisco signed Ward to a three-year, $40.5 million deal in March. Ward, 26, has recorded 222 tackles, a



49ers' DeMeco Ryans, Jimmie Ward say Trey Lance is 'growing as a leader'

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans spoke with reporters after Wednesday's practice. His unit is tasked with making sure second-year quarterback Trey Lance gets all the training camp looks necessary to prepare for the regular season. Ryans may coach the defensive stars on the 49ers roster, but that doesn't mean he doesn't interact with Lance. The coach shared what those brief conversations are like. "For me and my interactions with Trey, I just always try to encourage him," Ryans told the media. "I think he's been doing a great job. Anytime in passing with him, it's always just a word of encouragement to keep going because I think he is really doing a great job of really taking hold of our offense, leading those guys.
