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.

How owning a 1st-round pick impacts (or doesn't) the 49ers' draft strategy

By David Bonilla
Feb 29

Barring any unforeseen changes between now and the end of April, the San Francisco 49ers will be making a first-round selection in the draft for the first time since 2021. The team's last two first-round picks were part of the deal used to move up and select quarterback Trey Lance three years ago. With Lance now a member of the Dallas Cowboys and Brock Purdy inked in as the 49ers' starter for the foreseeable future, the team is in a different position heading into this year's draft. They expect to own 11 selections, including the No. 31 overall pick. General manager John Lynch and his staff are currently in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine. They are evaluating prospects and strategizing for the upcoming draft, including what to do with their first-round

Why John Lynch doesn't expect 49ers' continued DC search to impact draft evaluations

By David Bonilla

Many anticipated that the San Francisco 49ers would have a new defensive coordinator in place this week as the team delves into studying draft prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. That didn't happen, and head coach Kyle Shanahan continues to seek a replacement for Steve Wilks, who was dismissed after the 49ers' Super Bowl 58 defeat. Shanahan recently confirmed two interviews—one with former Los Angeles Chargers head coach Brandon Staley and the other with 49ers defensive passing game specialist Nick Sorensen. Additional interviews are scheduled for this week. The continued search means that

John Lynch discusses how Dre Greenlaw's injury impacts 49ers plan at linebacker

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers defense was smothering the Kansas City Chiefs offense in Super Bowl LVIII. Chiefs star QB Patrick Mahomes was struggling, and tight end Travis Kelce was visibly frustrated, even appearing to push head coach Andy Reid on the sideline. It looked as if the 49ers might finally win that elusive sixth Super Bowl. And then it happened. While running back onto the field, linebacker Dre Greenlaw slipped and tore his Achilles. And while one can argue whether or not that injury cost the 49ers the Super Bowl, it certainly had a major impact, as Kelce, now mostly being guarded by Oren Burks, became a major player in Kansas City's victory. Greenlaw's injury, without question, hurt the 49ers bid to win Super Bowl LVIII. But how will the injury affect the

With Brock Purdy's injury now behind him, 49ers GM John Lynch says QB can focus on "areas of improvement rather than just getting well"

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy had a remarkable 2023 season. It was his first full season as the starter, and Purdy did not disappoint, passing for 4,280 yards and 31 touchdowns. He also led the league in passer rating at 113.0. And Purdy became the 49ers' first Pro Bowl QB since Jeff Garcia was selected in 2002. Matt Maiocco, of NBC Sports Bay Area, recently sat down with 49ers GM John Lynch, for the latest episode of 49ers Talk. They talked about the season Purdy had, and how different this offseason is compared to last offseason, when Purdy was coming off a torn UCL suffered in the NFC Championship Game. There was plenty of speculation as to whether or not Purdy would play
