49ers protect 3 from practice squad, work out 2 punters with Mitch Wishnowsky on the COVID list

Dec 28, 2021 at 2:39 PM--

According to the NFL transaction wire, the San Francisco 49ers protected the following three practice squad players ahead of Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

San Francisco worked out the following players:

  • QB Tyler Bray
  • P Jimmy Smith
  • P Colby Wadman

The then-Oakland Raiders signed Wadman as an undrafted free agent out of UC Davis in 2018. He spent two seasons (2018-19) with the Denver Broncos. Tennessee made Smith an undrafted free agent signing out of Cincinnati, and he spent camp with the Titans.

The 49ers could be without their punter, Mitch Wishnowsky, for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. On Monday, the team placed him on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked if Wishnowsky's status means he would miss the Week 17 matchup.

"No, those protocols to get back have eased up a little bit," Shanahan responded. "I'm not sure exactly how, but I still believe he has got to get two negative tests, I believe. And it depends on where his symptoms are, so we'll hold out hope that he'll be able to punt for us on Sunday and kickoff, and if not, we'll have someone else in here."

Linebacker Tyrell Adams terminated his practice-squad contract.

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10

Will 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo practice once he's cleared?

Now that the Deebo Samuel drama is currently in hibernation, and the "Trey Lance isn't ready" tour has slowed some, Jimmy Garoppolo is back in the headlines. Not for any reason other than it's Jimmy Garoppolo. I know, I know. You're sick of hearing his name. Trust me. I'm sick of hearing it and spelling it. But until the San Francisco 49ers trade Garoppolo, name him the starter, declare that Lance is the starter or decree that the beginning of training camp will be the dawning of a new era in the 49ers' quarterback room, we will continue to hear about him. So until there is a mutual parting of the ways, writers will write about him, content creators will talk about him, reporters will continue to speculate, and the national media will continue to make things
