Torrey Smith writes blog post remembering his brother

Sep 23, 2015 at 9:30 AM--


Three years ago, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver, then with the Baltimore Ravens, lost his brother to a car crash. Yesterday, he wrote a blog post reflecting on his brother Chris' death and the days that followed.

While Smith dealt with the death of a loved one, the media was focused on whether or not the talented receiver would play in the Ravens' then upcoming game against the New England Patriots. Smith did play and had 127 receiving yards and two touchdowns in a dramatic 31-30 win over the Patriots.

"I didn't want to hurt my team by trying to play and not being physically or mentally ready. After much thought and support from my family, I decided to play. That game was very emotional for me," said Smith in his post.

San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter of today's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He later left for the locker room to be examined. The injury left the 49ers with Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter as the only available running backs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game and said that Hasty suffered a broken collarbone. That means he'll probably miss a significant amount of time and will likely become yet another 49ers player to land on injured reserve. Shanahan is hoping to get running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) back after the bye week. "I'm hoping they are," Shanahan said of their chances to return in time for the 49ers' Week 12

Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo will be the San Francisco 49ers quarterback next season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday that he expects that to be the case. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan told reporters. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division. "I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do it one game at a time, and I hope Jimmy can come back and be a part of that. But to think that we've
