49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Buckner doesn’t practice, Kerley limited

Oct 4, 2016 at 2:56 PM--


For the second day in a row, San Francisco 49ers DE DeForest Buckner (foot) didn't practice. He was injured during the 49ers' 24-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

"He's day-to-day right now and we're still optimistic for Thursday for him," 49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil said today regarding Buckner. However, Buckner is still in a walking boot which casts doubt on his availability for Thursday.

Also injured against the Cowboys, WR Jeremy Kerley (ankle) returned to practice today after sitting out yesterday's walkthrough. Kerley was acquired via a trade with the Detroit Lions on August 28 and leads the team in receiving with 18 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown. The next closest 49ers player isn't even a receiver. TE Garrett Celek is second on the team in receiving with 10 catches for 131 yards.

CB Jimmie Ward continues to miss practice after suffering a quad injury against during Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks. He is reportedly week-to-week.

Of course, the 49ers suffered a devastating loss on Sunday when ILB NaVorro Bowman, the clear leader on defense, went down with a non-contact injury against the Cowboys. An MRI on Monday confirmed what many feared – that the Pro Bowl and All-Pro inside linebacker suffered an Achilles tear and will miss the remainder of the season.

The 49ers have a short week as they prepare to face the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium.

49ers DL Maurice Hurst has likely season-ending injury; DL Hassan Ridgeway to miss time

The 49ers took two more hits on the defensive line Friday, with defensive tackle Maurice Hurst suffering what is likely to be a season-ending injury and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway sustaining a quad injury that could cost him a couple weeks of practice. News of both injuries was announced by head coach Kyle Shanahan ahead of Saturday's practice session. Hurst tore his biceps in practice while trying to tackle a runner, according to a tweet from David Lombardi of The Athletic, and will require surgery. Ridgeway took a mild quad strain that may result in him being sidelined for a couple of weeks. Hurst, 27, is in his second season with the 49ers but was limited to just



Kyle Shanahan on why Thursday was a 'real good' practice despite interceptions, and how picky 49ers are about Jimmy Garoppolo's destination

Trey Lance didn't exactly have a great stat line during Thursday's training camp session for the San Francisco 49ers, but head coach Kyle Shanahan says Lance was correct when he said Thursday's practice was better than Wednesday's despite multiple interceptions by the team's quarterbacks. Lance threw one of those interceptions and completed seven of 15 passes throughout the practice, while backups Nate Sudfeld and Brock Purdy threw three combined picks, according to 49ers beat reporter Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. But afterwards, Lance told reporters he was encouraged with



Trey Lance anxious to see how 49ers respond to second 'sloppy' practice

The San Francisco 49ers offense hopes to clean things up after two consecutive underwhelming practices. The team kicked off training camp this week, holding three practices so far. You could interpret the last two sessions as good outings for the defense, but with all eyes on second-year quarterback Trey Lance, the narrative will constantly shift towards the offense. Lance doesn't seem too concerned, though, even after his second straight day that included throwing an interception. He was 3-of-10 during Friday's team drills. "There's always going to be ups and downs," Lance told Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports HQ after Friday's practice. "I'm kind of more worried, at this point, about how we respond. I thought it was a little bit sloppy today, for sure, on my end,



49ers LB Fred Warner explains why being irritating at practice is a good thing

By Kirk Larrabee

Fred Warner has been getting on the nerves of some of his 49ers teammates recently, but it's all being done in preparation for what's to come during the regular season. Warner was singled out earlier this week by wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk as being "irritating" during practice. Warner told Aiyuk in the locker room ahead of practice that he was going to be talking some smack that day, but he still seemed to get under Aiyuk's skin a little bit. "He told me what type of time it is in the locker room earlier today, so I can't be mad at him," Aiyuk said. "We're all competitors. That defense is the best defense in the National Football League, so that's
