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.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic this week and was once again asked about the team's quarterback situation. Now, this was all before the buzz surrounding Deshaun Watson's disappointment in the Houston Texans and the potential trade talk that ensued. Hence, the focus was on the possibility that the 49ers might look to the first round of the draft to bolster the quarterback position. Kawakami, as part of the interview on his podcast, The TK Show, asked Lynch if the 49ers might consider using their top pick on one of the highly-touted incoming rookie signal-callers. "We certainly could," Lynch responded while

John Lynch doesn't see a need to restructure Jimmy Garoppolo's contract right now

By David Bonilla
Jan 10, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward with the assumption that this year's salary cap will be set at $175 million. It will probably be a bit higher, but general manager John Lynch would rather start with the floor. "Anything that we get (above $175 million), I think, is going to be a bonus and gravy, and will help us," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "But if it's 175, we'll make it work, and I think we can keep a lot of these players together. You can't keep everyone, but I think we can prioritize. We'll have a very good plan, and I feel really good about our team, moving forward." Of course, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's
