NFL Lockout Update for Wednesday

Jul 20, 2011 at 11:33 AM--


According to NFL Network, NFL players are expected to review and vote on a CBA settlement today in Washington D.C. San Francisco linebacker Takeo Spikes is in Washington D.C. representing the 49ers.

NFL team owners arrived in Atlanta, Georgia this morning and are expected to be reviewing the potential new CBA. Owners are expected to vote on the settlement on Thursday.

Yesterday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reported on his Twitter (@mattbarrows) that the San Francisco 49ers are telling their medical staff to get ready to begin examining players Sunday.

Teams are preparing for a fast and furious free agency period which will likely begin sometime next week and could span only a few days.

UPDATE

A number of players have left the Washington D.C. meeting without a vote taking place. However, it is still possible that a vote could take place remotely, via conference calls, later today.

However, the majority of the players remain in the meeting.

The owners still remain in their meeting in Atlanta, where certain aspects of the settlement could be tweaked. NFL Network states that it looks as though the owners are ready to sign off on the new deal.

While there is no representation by the San Francisco 49ers at the owners meeting today, additional owners are expected to fly in tonight and tomorrow morning.

UPDATE 2

After brief statements by a small number of players, it does not look as though there will be a vote by the players on the new settlement today. The players stated that they do not have enough information or a fully completed document.

However, there are reports that there was a conditional vote today. Meaning, that if certain conditions of the settlement are met, the committee has the players' ok.

Today's practice will be very telling. Everyone wants to know which quarterback will head onto the field with the offense when the San Francisco 49ers take on the division-leading Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon. Will it be Jimmy Garoppolo, or will the team go with the rookie, Trey Lance? Garoppolo sustained a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks and has not practiced this week. The 49ers' final practice will be this afternoon, and Garoppolo told head coach Kyle Shanahan that he wants to "give it a go." "Jimmy is a tough competitor," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And Jimmy was

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get

Trey Lance's first NFL start was far from perfect, but it was good enough to leave a positive impression on those who were playing with and against him on the field. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with zero touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, while also leading both teams in rushing with 16 carries for 89 yards. Following the game, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters he felt Lance played well overall despite the first quarter interception that the Cardinals turned into their first touchdown. "I thought he did some really good things," Shanahan said. "Definitely wasn't perfect, which no one ever has been. That first pick I thought just sailed on him. He was going to the right spot but it
