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.

The San Francisco 49ers held their first of 13 scheduled training camp practices. Below are some practice notes from various media sources. Limited: DE Nick Bosa (knee) DE Dee Ford (neck, back) WR Jalen Hurd (knee) DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after practice that the 49ers are being careful with defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, who underwent a clean-up procedure in his knee after last season and, more recently, a minor procedure to reduce swelling. He did not participate in team drills today, and the team will continue to ease him into on-field work. Nick Bosa, who missed most of last season due to a torn ACL, looks leaner. The pass



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. I'll get it



Watch 49ers rookie Trey Lance fire up the crowd before practice

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan regretted not having a rookie player fire up the crowd during the first training camp practice this week. The team has tasked a rookie with doing so in previous years. Obviously, not last year, as no fans were in the stands for practices. "We usually do a rookie hype machine, and I feel like I didn't see it out there today," Shanahan told reporters yesterday. "So I was kind of disappointed with that. I'll get that corrected later today, but it was definitely different (seeing fans again). And I'm so pumped to see it in the stadium." Shanahan did get it corrected. Rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the 49ers' first-round pick, was the one out there getting fans fired up before today's practice — the
