Tomsula: ‘We’re all going through a storm together’

Nov 2, 2015 at 11:58 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula spoke to the media today, giving injury updates and speaking about the team's current situation.

At the time of the press conference, there was no update on the MRI results for RB Reggie Bush. It is feared by many that Bush may have a torn ACL after slipping on the sideline concrete and the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. He was seen using crutches in the locker room following the 49ers' 27-6 loss.

There is no update yet on RB Mike Davis. He is getting an MRI on his hand, which is feared to be broken. TE Garrett Celek is going through the concussion protocol this week.

When asked if Colin Kaepernick was the starting quarterback, Tomsula said, "We are evaluating everything right now." However, he stated repeatedly that he will not speak on the Kaepernick situation or personnel in general. "Colin didn't play good enough and neither did the team. The San Francisco 49ers did not play good enough," said Tomsula.

Earlier today, it was reported that RB Ben Tate would work out for the team tomorrow. Again, since this involved personnel, Tomsula would not speak about any workouts.

When asked how the players are in the locker room, he said, "I think the locker room is good. I think it is very good." Tomsula went on to say, "We're all going through a storm together."

During the offseason, the team repeatedly stated that they are not in a rebuilding mode. Tomsula said "I'm not into the labels. I'm not into any of that" when asked if that belief has changed. He also stated that he is still comfortable with his coordinators and coaching staff.

A full transcript, audio, and video will be available later today.

The 49ers are preparing for a home game on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

Jimmie Ward on 49ers rookie Deommodore Lenoir: 'He's going to be a great player in this league'

Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir may end up being one of the best value picks from the San Francisco 49ers' most recent draft class. He was a fifth-round draft pick, and the Niners tend to find gold in that round. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. D.J. Reed may not be on the team anymore but is proving to be a good player for the Seattle Seahawks. He was a 49ers fifth-round pick in 2018. In 2017, San Francisco drafted some little-known tight end out of Iowa named George Kittle. He's not bad either. Could Lenoir be the team's next fifth-round gem? The rookie's teammate, safety Jimmie Ward, joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. The discussion eventually led to Lenoir and the young defensive back's early dividends. The



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Trey Lance: 'He will give us a chance to win a lot going forward'

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters this afternoon, nearly 24 hours after his team suffered its third consecutive loss of the season. There was a lot of bad from the trip to State Farm Stadium to play the Arizona Cardinals. However, there was also some good. The game was rookie Trey Lance's first NFL start. The 21-year-old quarterback had his ups and downs, but it was an opportunity for growth. Lance was playing because the 49ers' regular starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, is dealing with a calf injury. "I was proud of him," Shanahan said of Lance via a conference call. "I thought he went into a tough environment versus a real good team. I thought he did a lot of real good things. He threw a bad pick on that first drive, but I thought he



49ers-Seahawks: Shanahan considered all options at placekicker after Robbie Gould injury, suggests team may try out kickers this week

By Kirk Larrabee

The San Francisco 49ers found themselves in an unexpected and unwanted special teams conundrum during a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday when a pregame groin injury to kicker Robbie Gould left them trying to decide between using punter Mitch Wishnowsky on field goals and extra points or not using a kicker in scoring opportunities at all. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game that he gave some consideration to leaving the offense on the field during situations that would normally require a placekicker. But Wishnowsky wound up getting the nod, although his results were mixed enough that head coach Kyle Shanahan kept his options open as the game went along. Wishnowsky connected on his first point after attempt, which came after a
