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.

Gritty Jimmy's Leadership Steers 49ers Through Disaster

Sure, it was just the Jets, but it meant everything. The 49ers' best player, DE Nick Bosa, had just been carted off the field and the 49ers were staring down a season completely unraveling before their eyes. A hobbled Jimmy Garoppolo knew the 49ers needed him badly. The Jets had gotten away with a cheap shot on Garoppolo earlier in Sunday's game, diving at his knee, which might have caused 10 flags to fly if he were Drew Bress or Tom Brady. The answer from Garoppolo would be resilience, as he led the 49ers down the field on a 14-play 67-yard drive capped off with a touchdown pass to TE Jordan Reed. It was a much needed message from the franchise quarterback to his team: the 49ers aren't going to fold. The limp was painfully present. With so many stars out, you

There's probably a number of people who never expected to see New York Jets running back Frank Gore still going strong in the NFL at age 37, but his former teammate Jimmie Ward isn't one of them. Ward is one of three current 49ers players who were on the roster when Gore was last with the team in 2014, with long snapper Kyle Nelson and cornerback Dontae Johnson being the others. Gore was a model of consistency back then, having rushed for over 1,000 yards in eight of nine seasons going back to 2006, and had just wrapped up a season of 1,106 yards and four touchdowns when he and the 49ers didn't come to terms on a new contract after the 2014 season. Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so

Several San Francisco 49ers complained about the playing surface at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The team suffered numerous injuries, including season-ending ACL injuries to two defensive linemen — Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. San Francisco will likely be without its starting quarterback and top two running backs on Sunday when the team returns to MetLife Stadium to play the New York Giants. Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a high-ankle sprain, and Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman suffered knee injuries this past weekend on the playing surface. Representatives from the NFL, NFLPA, MetLife Stadium, Giants, New York Jets, and an independent field inspector all conducted another review of the playing surface on Wednesday, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport.
