Tomsula on Jarryd Hayne: “He continues to work his tail off and get better”

Dec 30, 2015 at 11:04 AM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula spoke to the media today. On the injury front, he stated that LB NaVorro Bowman, LB Michael Wilhoite, DL Quinton Dial, RB Shaun Draughn, and C Marcus Martin would have today off from practice. LT Joe Staley is sick and will miss practice as well. S Jaquiski Tartt will be limited today. He is dealing with a knee injury and the team will see where he is at today.

When asked about concussions, and how they seem to be taking longer to recover from than in previous years, Tomsula pointed out that the league has a concussion protocol now, which dictates what steps and goals must be met in order for a player to return.

Tomsula was asked about the offensive line and started that Trent Brown performed well in his first career start. He thought that he had a good first half and in the second half, there were still some things that they would like to work on. "Overall, I felt he represented himself well," said Tomsula. "We have a vet there that is trying to help him through it," referring to Erik Pears.

He continued to talk about Pears, saying that the intention when he was signed was to have him play guard, where he has filled in when needed. However, he has been playing tackle because that is where theta needed him to move. According to Tomsula, Pears said, "That's where you need me? That's where I go." Tomsula added, "That's the kind of guy he is."

When asked about pass protection issues with the new guys playing in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions, Tomsula praised running backs coach Tom Rathman and his ability to get guys ready. "Learning all of that in a week is a hefty task," he said.

When asked about RB Jarryd Hayne specifically, Tomsula said, "He continues to work his tail off and get better ... He knows the assignments. Would I tell you that it is completely natural to him yet? No."

RB Mike Davis will get more reps with the first team in practice this week. He underwent surgery on his broken hand in early November.

Once again, Tomsula was asked about his future with the team and stated that the team only focuses on the week at hand. "We just talk about the week and where we're going. Our conversation haven't changed a bit … It's been the same all year," he said.

Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula has guided the Rhein Fire to a European League of Football championship. The 49ers named Tomsula their head coach in 2015 after the firing of Jim Harbaugh. His tenure lasted just one season as San Francisco went 5-11 that season. Chip Kelly replaced Tomsula in 2016, who also lasted just one season. Kyle Shanahan has been the 49ers head coach since 2017. Tomsula went on to serve as the defensive line coach for Washington (2017-19) and the Dallas Cowboys (2020) before being named the new Rhein Fire head coach last year. It was a reunion with the team he coached in 2006, when the Rhein Fire were a part of NFL Europe. Tomsula guided his European team to a 7-5 record last year. This year, he went 12-0

49ers demolish Giants in Week 3 victory: Key takeaways

By Marc Adams

It's hard to think of the New York Giants without some painful postseason memories. And that's why it's always so sweet to beat them soundly. And the San Francisco 49ers did just that on Thursday night, winning 30-12, and improving to 3-0 on the season. Although the score was relatively close at halftime, it wasn't as close statistically. And by the end of the game, it was even more lopsided—on the scoreboard and on the stat sheet. When you have more YAC (yards after the catch/contact) than the other team has total yards, you've thoroughly beaten your opponent. The Giants had 150 yards of total
