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.

The 49ers cut things fairly short when it came to post-practice media sessions on Saturday, but that doesn't mean there weren't any items of interest to pass along. Quarterback Trey Lance and rookie wide receiver Danny Gray were the only players to speak to reporters after practice on Saturday, and each of them talked about a number of topics. Lance spoke about what he's seen from a number of veterans and young players on offense, while Gray discussed where he is in his development since being selected by the 49ers in Round 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft. And there was another rookie on Saturday who put on a memorable show at practice, albeit in a unique way. Here's a rundown of what was discussed Saturday afternoon. * Welcome back



John Lynch on Jimmy Garoppolo trade: 49ers will 'stay patient through this one'

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters via a conference call on Tuesday. He did so from his office at the team facility, noting that he could see quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on the practice field from his window. "I'm watching him throw right now, and he looks pretty good," Lynch said. The general manager confirmed that Garoppolo is cleared to practice. However, both sides have "mutually" agreed that the best thing right now is to have the quarterback work on the side. Garoppolo doesn't have any restrictions, though. "Jimmy's doing a really good job, kind of building his stamina in the throwing program that was prescribed all along, and working out really strongly and aggressively," Lynch



Rapoport: 49ers' talent can carry Trey Lance through 'up and down' season

The San Francisco 49ers are off today. The team returns to the practice field tomorrow. Anyone that follows the team even somewhat closely knows that second-year quarterback Trey Lance has had an up and down training camp. That was to be expected. This offseason is his first taking the majority of the quarterback snaps. Plus, Lance is going against what many expect to be one of this season's top defenses and has had starters in and out of the offense while doing so. NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport joined the PatMcAfee Show and shared what he's heard about and witnessed from last year's No. 3 overall pick. While none of it is new information, Rapoport still discussed Lance's "up and down" training camp. McAfee hilariously expressed shock as if the report



Why George Kittle loves going against Jimmie Ward; 49ers safety forecasts 'Pick City'

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice and started the conversation by praising a defensive teammate—Jimmie Ward. Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
