Bruce Ellington suffers muscle strain

Aug 4, 2015 at 11:38 AM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach announced today that wide receiver Bruce Ellington suffered a muscle strain and will not practice today.

Ryan Sakamoto of Niner News reported via Twitter that rookie tight end Blake Bell had suffered the same injury, but that tweet was later deleted. The other player to suffer the injury was actually wide receiver Issac Blakeney.

Ellington has been impressing during training camp, but the injury should not keep him out for very long.

His injury is not related to the hamstring injury that kept him out of offseason workouts.

The 49ers are scheduled to practice today at 4:15 PM at the practice fields behind the team's headquarters which sits next door to Levi's Stadium.

The setback has put his availability for the team's Week 1 showdown with the Chicago Bears in doubt. "Yesterday, Jimmie Ward pulled his hamstring," Shanahan said. "A little worse than the other guys so he's going to be [out] some time." Shanahan notes that the 49ers have several options to fill in for Ward, should he miss time.
