49ers signing kicker Sam Sloman to the practice squad

Oct 11, 2022 at 12:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are signing kicker Sam Sloman to their practice squad, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.


The move comes after Robbie Gould suffered a knee contusion during Sunday's 37-15 win over the Carolina Panthers.

"He has some swelling. We'll see how it goes throughout the week," head coach Kyle Shanahan noted on Monday before adding that the 49ers planned to work out kickers, just in case.

Sloman, 25, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Los Angeles Rams in 2020 after playing college football at Miami (OH). He has also spent time with the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Sloman has made 10 of his 13 field goal attempts and 23 of his 26 extra-point attempts over his career. He has also averaged 64.5 yards on 37 kickoffs.

Why Baldinger says the 49ers should avoid signing Tom Brady

After watching injury after injury devastate the San Francisco 49ers quarterback room this season, several fans on social media are willing to see what adding a veteran like Tom Brady might do to improve the team's outlook. If you don't count the four games he was suspended in 2016, Brady has started every game in all but one season since 2002. Meanwhile, Kyle Shanahan has started six different quarterbacks since becoming the 49ers' head coach in 2017. Unfortunately, he can't seem to keep his signal callers healthy. Of course, there is also a very vocal group of fans against a potential Brady signing. Their reasoning is sound. Brady will be 46 years old at the start of the 2023 season. In hindsight, the 49ers probably should have signed Brady in 2020, when they

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their NFC Championship Game contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Aside from tackle Trent Williams returning from his veteran day off, nothing changed compared to Wednesday's practice participation report. Two 49ers running backs sat out Wednesday's practice due to injuries. Nothing changed for Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell on Thursday. Neither participated in the afternoon session. However, McCaffrey was on hand for the team's walk-through before practice. How concerned is the 49ers head coach about his running backs' statuses? "Same concerns I had yesterday," Kyle Shanahan said. One person who isn't



Christian McCaffrey returns to practice ahead of 49ers-Eagles; Elijah Mitchell still sidelined

There probably wasn't much concern inside the San Francisco 49ers building surrounding running back Christian McCaffrey's availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. When asked about the chances of not playing this weekend, McCaffrey responded, "Zero." The media has kept an eye on the situation because McCaffrey missed the first two practices this week due to a calf contusion. The running back was back on the practice field on Friday, though, indicating he will be ready to go against the Eagles. The bad news is that running back Elijah Mitchell, who also missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, was not on the



49ers' Trey Lance says he's 3-4 weeks from being cleared to practice

Brock Purdy is expected to miss about six months due to the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow of his throwing arm. The injury was suffered during the first quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Jimmy Garoppolo, recovering from the broken foot he suffered on December 4, is expected to hit free agency. That leaves the San Francisco 49ers with Trey Lance, the quarterback they drafted with the No. 3 overall pick in 2021. Lance suffered a season-ending ankle injury on September 18, undergoing two surgeries since then, with the
