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.

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.

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

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
