Tomsula gives updates on injuries following win in Chicago

Dec 7, 2015 at 12:06 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula spoke to the media on Monday and gave some updates on a number of injuries the team had during Sunday's 26-20 overtime road victory over the Chicago Bears.

LB Aaron Lynch and TE Vance McDonald suffered concussions and are in the concussion protocol this week. DE Quinton Dial collided with Lynch in the third quarter, causing his injury. Earlier in the game, Dial collided with LB NaVorro Bowman in the second quarter. He was also checked for a possible concussion, but was cleared to play and returned in the second half. Tomsula said that Bowman is fine. A knee from a Bears defensive player collided with the back of McDonald's helmet during the second quarter, causing his concussion.

LB Michael Wilhoite, who has been nursing an ankle injury and may have injured it on Sunday, is getting an MRI today. TE Garrett Celek, who was injured against the Arizona Cardinals, is meeting with doctors today to see where he is at with his high ankle sprain.

Tomsula spoke a little about RB Carlos Hyde, who is attempting to recover from a stress fracture in his left foot, saying that he did not know if he would play again this year. "I know Carlos would like to try and play," Tomsula said.

Tomsula praised QB Blaine Gabbert's performance in Chicago, saying, "We're really excited where he's at and where he's headed." He spoke of some things that the team has improved on over the course of the season. Tomsula said that offensively, things like players understanding routes and the play along the offensive line have improved. Defensively, scheme and how the players fit together has improved as well.

He even mentioned P Bradley Pinion, saying, "That was the best game that he's played this year."

Sunday's lack of announcements bodes well for several players who missed all or part of last season. That is good news as the 49ers prepare to start training camp. All #49ers would've taken physicals by SAT and no additional

More experienced 49ers hungrier than ever to win the Super Bowl, says Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman knows what it's like to win a Super Bowl. He also knows what it's like to lose a Super Bowl. The cornerback knew that before joining the San Francisco 49ers and relived the experience in February. Sherman feels there are valuable lessons to be learned in a Super Bowl loss, though, especially for a young and less-experienced team. He remembers a playoff loss to the Atlanta Falcons while with Seattle, and how it made his Seahawks hungrier than ever. "The next year, it was like the season couldn't start fast enough, and it couldn't go by fast enough," Sherman said during an Instagram interview with Pro Football Focus. "Everybody in our way was just simply that — they were in our way." Sherman sees the same thing with these 49ers

While the Seattle Seahawks closed the gap a bit on the San Francisco 49ers with the trade for safety Jamal Adams, the Super Bowl runner-ups remain the favorite to repeat as NFC West champions. Bleacher Report may not see it that way, though. The site asked five of its NFL writers to pick each division's winners, and the NFC West wasn't the landslide victory for the 49ers that you might expect. In fact, three of the five writers went with the Seahawks, including longtime 49ers fan Matt Miller. Only Gary Davenport and Brad Gagnon picked San Francisco to repeat as division champions while Miller, Tyler Dunne, and Brent Sobleski each
