Aug. 21 Practice Notes

Aug 21, 2015 at 2:27 PM--


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

Grant Cohn, The Press Democrat:

Aaron Lynch: Chased down and tag-sacked backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert on a play-action bootleg pass to the offense's right. Lynch seems in shape for the first time this offseason.

Rookie quarterback Dylan Thompson faked a handoff to his left, rolled back to his right and spotted wide receiver Nigel King open downfield ... Before Thompson threw the pass Tartt started accelerating toward King, and when the ball arrived Tartt swatted it to the ground.

Colin Kaepernick: Completed six of seven pass attempts including a 50-yard touchdown pass down the right sideline to Vernon Davis, who was being covered by cornerback Marcus Cromartie, who stopped running around the 25-yard line.


Cam Inman, The Mercury News:

Cornerback Keith Reaser finished an encouraging week of practice by remaining on the first-string unit, ahead of Shareece Wright.

Jarryd Hayne's ball-catching skills again were among the practice highlights. Hayne raced down the right sideline and grabbed a 25-yard pass from fellow rookie Dylan Thompson, splitting the deep coverage of Mylan Hicks and L.J. McCray.

Chuck Jacobs had the catch of the day, diving into the end zone and securing a pass from Dylan Thompson against Hicks' coverage.

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

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



49ers OTAs: Videos of Trey Lance, others from Tuesday's practice

The San Francisco 49ers kicked off organized team activities (OTAs) this week. Monday's session was closed to the media. However, reporters had an opportunity to observe Tuesday's session and get their first offseason glance at quarterback Trey Lance on the practice field. While there are several 49ers-related offseason storylines, the most prominent ones have been the quarterback situation and the drama surrounding wide receiver Deebo Samuel. Samuel is not in attendance after requesting to be traded, so there isn't anything new to report on that front. As for the quarterback storyline, most expect Lance to be the 49ers' starter in 2022, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo, who has remained on the roster much longer than anticipated. Of course, that is primarily

This may not be as headline-worthy as it would have been had someone said it toward the middle or end of training camp. After all, the San Francisco 49ers just started organized team activities (OTAs) this week, wrapping up their third practice on Thursday. One reporter, Pro Football Focus' Doug Kyed, is hearing that the last session was second-year quarterback Trey Lance's best. "Lance has impressed people within the organization so far this spring, and the team feels he's already shown progress early in organized team activities," Kyed recently wrote for Pro Football Focus. "Thursday was believed to be his best practice
