Players hint at Isaac Bruce retirement

Jan 3, 2010 at 10:32 PM--


While he has not officially announced anything, all signs are pointing to 49ers wide receiver Isaac Bruce having played his final NFL game.

As if his changing out of his uniform and into sweatpants at the half of the 49ers' 28-6 win against his former team, the St. Louis Rams, two players seem certain that Bruce will retire. On their Twitter pages, cornerback Nate Clements gives a "shout out" to Bruce saying that he has retired. Linebacker Takeo Spikes also indicates the same thing saying "it has been a pleasure to play against & with him."

Bruce has played the last two seasons with San Francisco but his playing time this season was minimal as he gave way to the younger developing receivers on the team.

49ers players say Jimmy Garoppolo looks 'real good' and has improved since last week

Jimmy Garoppolo's playing status against the Los Angeles Rams this week probably won't be known until gameday, but it sounds like he's been making visible strides in practice, based on what his teammates said Thursday. Garoppolo sat out last week's win over the Houston Texans in favor of rookie Trey Lance due to a thumb injury that may or may not require surgery in the offseason, but he's been back at practice this week as the 49ers prepare for their season finale in Los Angeles (4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). He was naturally a popular topic of conversation during post-practice media sessions on Thursday, with reporters wanting to know the players'

The San Francisco 49ers have six players on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Five are defensive backs. Those defensive backs are Dontae Johnson, Deommodore Lenoir, Ambry Thomas, Jimmie Ward, and K'Waun Williams. General manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and sounded optimistic that at least some of those players will be available for Sunday's playoff-impacting regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. "Yeah, I believe we will because the league altered their rules some time back when the CDC did as well," Lynch said on the Murph & Mac show. "Our vaccination rate was as high as there is in the league. And I think we've also been the

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided status updates for a number of players after practice on Friday, including quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo—but he still stopped short of naming him the starter for this weekend's game against the Los Angeles Rams (Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET/1:25 p.m. PT, FOX). Shanahan stuck to his stance of not announcing a starter between Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance in order to give Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris more to think about, but he was clearly encouraged with what he saw from Garoppolo at practice throughout the week after missing last Sunday's start against the Houston Texans with a thumb injury. "He had a good week—a good week of practice when he was in there. I feel good with where he's at right now," Shanahan

Tackle Trent Williams did not practice at all this week. He suffered an elbow injury during Week 17's win against the Houston Texans. Williams is also listed as "questionable." "No, Trent didn't practice," Shanahan said. "He's still rehabbing his
