Aug. 19 Practice Notes

Aug 19, 2015 at 6:33 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:

Defensive back Jimmie Ward, last year's top draft pick, started practicing this week with his twice-broken right foot protected by a plastic clamp inside his cleat.

Aaron Lynch says he's no longer hindered by a back injury that kept him off the field and caused him to gain weight.

Nick Bellore (illness) was activated off the non-football-injury list, and fellow linebacker Michael Wilhoite (leg) might soon be as well after an encouraging MRI exam, Tomsula said.


Chris Biderman, Niners Digest:

Carradine and wide receiver Quinton Patton had to be separated along the offensive sideline, after the two got tangled following a Carlos Hyde running play.

Next week, the 49ers travel to Denver to have two camp practices at the Broncos' facility leading up to their preseason game Saturday Aug. 29. In lieu of recent dust ups in joint practices - Tomsula said he's not worried about fights with the Broncos.

On the practice field, a few players began to work with different teams. Most notably, Aaron Lynch received first-team reps at his customary right outside linebacker spot, both in base and nickel formations.

NaVorro Bowman practiced Wednesday without the brace on his surgically repaired left knee that he famously said he wanted to "light it on fire" in the offseason.


Matt Maiocco, CSN Bay Area:

In just his second day back to 11-on-11 work, Aaron Lynch lined up at left outside linebacker with the 49ers' first unit in place of Corey Lemonier.

And impressive first-year player Keith Reaser continued to work with the first unit at left cornerback. Reaser has taken over for veteran Shareece Wright, who has lined up with that squad since the opening of camp.

Tank Carradine mixed it up on the practice field for the second day in a row. However, this time was with receiver Quinton Patton, who reportedly took a swipe at Carradine, who outweighs him by at least 90 pounds.


Matt Barrows, The Sacramento Bee:

After a running play, receiver Quinton Patton seemed to take exception to a hit by Carradine on the running back. He gave Carradine, who is 295 pounds, a shove, at which point Carradine charged the 205-pound Patton on the sideline. The two were quickly separated but the minor melee broke the rhythm of practice that Tomsula and his coaches have been trying to build.

Another practice, another milestone for linebacker NaVorro Bowman. He went through Wednesday's session without the knee brace he has openly loathed because it slows him down.

It was a strong day for the 49ers' tight ends with Vernon Davis, Vance McDonaldand Garrett Celek all catch multiple passes.

Gabbert also continues to look good. Yes, in terms of pressing the ball deep downfield, Gabbert makes Alex Smith look like Dan Fouts. But he's efficient and is particularly fond of his tight ends.


Grant Cohn, The Press Democrat:

Aaron Lynch: Started at left outside linebacker in the first-string base defense and at left defensive end in the first-string sub-packages. Today was only Lynch's second day of team drills, and he already seems to have taken Corey Lemonier's job.

Brock and Reaser frequently switched sides – sometimes Reaser lined up on the left, and sometimes Brock would.

Acker was targeted six times during team drills, and he gave up only two short catches. He also broke up three passes. He seems much better than second-year cornerback Dontae Johnson, who played with the third-string defense today.

Brock Purdy is expected to miss about six months due to the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the elbow of his throwing arm. The injury was suffered during the first quarter of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Jimmy Garoppolo, recovering from the broken foot he suffered on December 4, is expected to hit free agency. That leaves the San Francisco 49ers with Trey Lance, the quarterback they drafted with the No. 3 overall pick in 2021.

Analyst and former All-Pro O-lineman: "Jimmy Garoppolo is just an injury-prone quarterback"

Mike Silver of the San Francisco Chronicle took a stab at defending Kyle Shanahan and his play calling from fans and media who place at least part of the blame for the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback injuries on the shoulders of the head coach. It's a fascinating read. Silver argues that the quarterback woes have more to do with poor luck than Shanahan unnecessarily putting his signal-callers in harm's way. Whether or not you want to accept Silver's stand on the situation is up to you. The topic has created much debate among the fanbase, but it is a discussion for another day. One thing was made clear this week. Jimmy Garoppolo, the



Emotional Fred Warner on 49ers' DeMeco Ryans: "He's the reason I'm the player I am today"

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers players looked like they were saying farewell to DeMeco Ryans after the team's 31-7 defeat in the NFC Championship Game. The defensive coordinator is a top candidate for head-coaching jobs. After Sunday's game, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Ryans is expected to become the Houston Texans' next coach, assuming this week's second interview goes well. The fact that Ryans may have coached the 49ers defense for the last time finally hit players in the locker room at Lincoln Financial Field after their season ended. "I hadn't thought about it up to this point because obviously you think you're going to win it all," linebacker Fred
