Aug. 7 Practice Notes

Aug 7, 2015 at 8:24 PM--


Here is what some of the San Francisco 49ers beat writers had to say about today's practice held at the team headquarters.

Cam Inman, The Mercury News:

Corey Lemonier, with one sack to his credit in two seasons, took the majority of snaps Friday at Aldon Smith's former spot at right outside linebacker.

Aaron Lynch, who had six sacks as a rookie last year, did not participate in team drills and instead worked out on a side field because of a leg issue that's hindered him since spring.

Reggie Bush may still be sitting out team drills at running back but he participated in Friday's special teams session and showed his still-electrifying speed as a returner, both on punts and kickoffs.

NaVorro Bowman participated in his second consecutive padded practice, though the players had Thursday off in between those sessions. Bowman continues to look stellar and his hits in warmups sound the loudest of any linebacker.

Desmond Bishop made a nice interception of a Blaine Gabbert pass over the middle.

Marcus Cromartie and Dontae Johnson lined up as the second-team cornerbacks, which is worth noting merely because of Chris Cook's release Wednesday.


Grant Cohn, The Press Democrat:

Vernon Davis: His best day of training camp, and the best receiver on the field. Made four catches during team drills, including a 50-yard touchdown catch.

Colin Kaepernick's short passes: The past few days Kaepernick struggled throwing short passes, particularly when targeting receivers running slant routes or drag routes. Not today.

Colin Kaepernick's deep passes: His first deep pass looked like a pop up or a punt – it was in the air forever. And it got intercepted by Shareece Wright.

Ian Silberman: Played center for the second-team offense today, and couldn't snap the ball to a quarterback standing in the shotgun. I counted six groundball snaps from Silberman during team drills.


Matt Barrows, The Sacramento Bee:

As was the case Wednesday, Colin Kaepernick started hot, connecting on his first six passes, including a nice gain down the sideline to Carlos Hyde and a throw to Vance McDonald. But his seventh throw was an interception.

Kaepernick and the first-team offense also struggled during a two-minute drill. After a penalty put the 49ers in a 3rd and 13 situation, Kaepernick's pass to McDonald was nearly picked off by Dontae Johnson.

Gabbert did hook up with receiver Jerome Simpson on the first snap of the second-team offense's two-minute drive. Simpson caught the ball in stride down the left sideline and outran the defense for an apparent touchdown.

Tank Carradine missed the practice with an illness. That gave rookie Arik Armstead a chance to take some repetitions at right defensive end with the second-team offense.


Chris Biderman, Niners Digest:

Unofficially, Kaepernick finished the day completing 9 of 15 throws and had no touchdowns. But it's important to point out that most of the offensive plays were run from mid field, and his interception was his only meaningful deep attempt during team drills.

Brooks is in far better shape than he was at this point last season, and could move to Smith's former position rushing the quarterback's blind side because he has the most experience.

Inside linebacker Nick Moody continues to have a solid camp ... In individual blitz pick-up drills, he hit both Carlos Hyde and Bruce Miller with some force. It appeared both players were shaken up following their encounters with Moody, but they did not leave practice.

In one kick off return, Bush looked like the fastest player on the field and went 100 yards for a would-be touchdown.

Javon Kinlaw limited in practice as 49ers defender returns from knee issue

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw was among the players not on the field for team drills when the San Francisco 49ers conducted their first training camp practice earlier today. The team plans to ease him back into a normal workload after the second-year defender underwent multiple procedures on his knee this offseason. Kinlaw had what was described as a "clean-up procedure" performed on his knee following last season. More recently, he underwent a minor procedure to reduce some swelling in the knee. Unfortunately, that limited what he could do during practice today. "He had, traveling and stuff like a month ago or something, [his knee] just swelled up a little bit," Shanahan told reporters after practice. "I don't know whether they drained it or not.
