Aug. 25 Practice Notes

Aug 25, 2015 at 2:30 PM--


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

Daniel Brown, The Mercury News:

After a tune-up at their home facility Tuesday, the 49ers boarded a plane for Denver, where they will share a practice field with the Broncos for a few days.

Inside linebacker Michael Wilhoite (muscle strain) was reinstated to the active roster and jumped right in with the first-team defense. He expects to play Saturday, although his playing time will hinge on how he feels throughout the week.

Nose tackle Glenn Dorsey (muscle strain) suited up but did not practice.


Chris Biderman, Niners Digest:

At practice Tuesday, hours before the team departed for Denver for two joint practices with the Broncos before Saturday's exhibition, rookie seventh-round pick Ian Silberman was inserted at right guard with the first team.

After missing all of 2014 with a stress fracture in his foot, second-year cornerback Kenneth Acker moved into the first team during Tuesday's practice on the right side opposite Tramaine Brock.

Inside linebacker Michael Wilhoite returned to the practice field for the first time since the start of camp and worked entirely with the first team, replacing Nick Moody alongside NaVorro Bowman.


Grant Cohn, The Press Democrat:

Kendall Hunter: Led all members of the first-team offense with five touches during team drills. One of Hunter's touches was a catch on a screen play, and another was an eight-yard touchdown run on a stretch-zone run to the left.

Michael Wilhoite: Played every snap at inside linebacker next to NaVorro Bowman with the first-team defense, even though Wilhoite missed the first three weeks of training camp with a muscle strain and today was his first day back.

Torrey Smith: Left the practice field early and did not participate during team drills – he participated only during individual drills.

George Kittle could play vs. Jets even if he doesn't practice, says 49ers' Kyle Shanahan

A San Francisco 49ers player rarely suits up for a game without practicing during the days leading up to that game. George Kittle is a rare tight end, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Kittle wouldn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. The tight end may not practice until Friday, and even that is not a certainty. That doesn't mean the New York Jets won't have to game plan for him, though. "Kittle, he's battling," Shanahan told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "We thought it would be alright. He woke up the next day a little sore. He fully expects to be there Sunday, like he always does. Just like he always plays through the game when it happens." Kittle suffered a knee sprain on a hit from safety Budda Baker during Sunday's loss to

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Neither tight end George Kittle (knee) nor cornerback Jason Verrett (hamstring) practiced. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said this week that he hopes Kittle can practice on Friday, but even if he can't, that doesn't necessarily rule him out for Sunday's game. Defensive end Dee Ford also did not practice. The injury report notes that it was due to a neck injury. The pass rusher was a full participant on Wednesday. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) returned to practice, albeit in a blue no-contact jersey. He is in the concussion protocol. The 49ers will be without starter Richard Sherman for the next

The San Francisco 49ers have updated pass rusher Dee Ford's status for Sunday's game against the New York Jets and ruled him "out" with a neck injury. The team had listed him on Friday as "questionable" before the downgrade. The 49ers also announced that offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu has been promoted from the practice squad. Ben Garland (ankle) is expected to return and start at center after missing Week 1 but Grasu can serve as his backup. Ford was a full participant during practice on Wednesday but later complained of some neck stiffness, general manager John Lynch said on KNBR Friday morning. The defender didn't practice on Thursday and underwent tests. Ford played last weekend and had three tackles against the Arizona Cardinals. San Francisco
