Jimmie Ward week-to-week with quad strain

Sep 27, 2016 at 10:31 AM--


San Francisco 49ers CB Jimmie Ward suffered a quadriceps strain during the team's loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. He is week-to-week. According to 49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil, who will replace Ward will be determined by which player looks better in practice this week.

Ward went down in the second quarter of the game. It was a non-contact injury that saw Ward grabbing his right leg. He walked off of the field with the assistance of two trainers and was replaced by Keith Reaser.

Ward has been the 49ers' top rated cornerback this season per advanced statistics site Pro Football Focus. He was also the 49ers' highest rated defensive back, which includes safeties, last season.

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

Jimmie Ward is glad the San Francisco 49ers aren't moving him around from position to position anymore. While he always tried to be a team player, he felt the most comfortable at safety, and that's where he's at now. "I've been playing [safety] since high school," Ward said on Wednesday during a conversation with Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky on 95.7 The Game. "I ended up figuring out I could play nickel once I got to college, and I guess coaches just, how my body type (is), and how fluent my hips are, they wanted to make me into a corner. But I was real passionate about safety because I just liked the physicality part of just being a safety." The 49ers re-signed Ward to a three-year, $28.5 million deal this offseason.
