Aug. 13 Practice Notes

Aug 13, 2015 at 7:28 PM--


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

Matt Maiocco, CSN Bay Area:

On Thursday, [Bowman] read backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert in an 11-on-11 red zone drill and nearly recorded an interception in the end zone.

Safety Craig Dahl capitalized on a Gabbert overthrow intended for DeAndrew White to make a diving interception during the first teamwork session of the non-padded practice.

Don't be surprised to see a few bad snaps in Saturday's game, as that's an area in which the 49ers have struggled to find consistency.

Tony Jerod-Eddie, Lawrence Okoye and Shawn Lemon produced good pass rushes in 11-on-11 work.


Grant Cohn, The Press Democrat:

Jaquiski Tartt: Played free safety for the second-team defense and picked off Colin Kaepernick during seven on sevens.

Carrier almost never drops a pass, and clearly is the second-best receiving tight end on the roster behind starter Vernon Davis.

Earlier in camp Kaepernick struggled during full team drills—he seemed uncomfortable behind the Niners' offensive line. Now he seems confident.

Gabbert's pass hit McDonald in stride and he just dropped it. I praised McDonald earlier in the week for improving his hands, but my praise seems to have been premature.


Jimmy Durkin, The Mercury News:

Thursday was a light practice without pads, as would be expected for the final session before a game. The 49ers fly to Houston on Friday.

Among the notable moments from the 11-on-11 session were two shotguns snaps from Joe Looney to Colin Kaepernick that hit the turf. Both were off to the side and Kaepernick couldn't grab them.

Shareece Wright made a nice strip of Vernon Davis just after he caught a pass from Kaepernick.

In 7-on-7 work, rookie Jaquiski Tartt intercepted a Kaepernick pass to Davis on what seemed to be a miscommunication between the quarterback and tight end.

49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10



Will 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo practice once he's cleared?

By Marc Adams

Now that the Deebo Samuel drama is currently in hibernation, and the "Trey Lance isn't ready" tour has slowed some, Jimmy Garoppolo is back in the headlines. Not for any reason other than it's Jimmy Garoppolo. I know, I know. You're sick of hearing his name. Trust me. I'm sick of hearing it and spelling it. But until the San Francisco 49ers trade Garoppolo, name him the starter, declare that Lance is the starter or decree that the beginning of training camp will be the dawning of a new era in the 49ers' quarterback room, we will continue to hear about him. So until there is a mutual parting of the ways, writers will write about him, content creators will talk about him, reporters will continue to speculate, and the national media will continue to make things
