49ers-Bills Injury Report: Jimmie Ward ruled out for third straight game

Oct 14, 2016 at 10:59 AM--


San Francisco 49ers CB Jimmie Ward has been ruled out for his third straight game. Look for Rashard Robinson to once again start in his place. Having played in 180 snaps this season, Robinson is the 49ers' highest-graded cornerback, per advanced statistics site Pro Football Focus. In fact, he is the team's highest-graded player period, not counting ILB NaVorro Bowman, who is out for the season with a torn Achilles.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area has reported that Ward could return after the bye week.

49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo ruled out for Sunday; George Kittle doubtful

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did not practice this week and has been ruled "out" for Sunday, which means fans will see rookie Trey Lance in his first career NFL start. Garoppolo suffered a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The hope was that he would take part in today's practice and test his right leg. That didn't happen. Tight end George Kittle also did not practice this week and is listed as "doubtful." He is also dealing with a calf injury. It's the same injury that kept him out of practice for most of last week. However, Kittle was able to play this past weekend. We'll have to wait to see if

Jimmie Ward felt it was a clean hit. It sounds like the NFL agrees. The San Francisco 49ers safety was not fined for his late-game hit on Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams last weekend. The officials, who may not have seen the brunt of the impact, did not penalize Ward in-game. The NFL didn't fine #49ers S Jimmie Ward for the hit that briefly knocked #Packers WR Davante Adams out of last Sunday night's game. It was reviewed,



Jimmie Ward reveals what impresses him about 49ers rookie Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward has gone against several rookie quarterbacks over his career, and he's done it from several positions on defense. He knows the difference between going against a rookie and a seasoned veteran. Coaches tend to keep things simple for younger players trying to transition to the pro level. That means a lot of plays are designed to get the football out of their hands quickly. Often, the game plan also involves playing it safe. "I don't know too many [young] quarterbacks that will go for a deep ball on third-and-one and third-and-two," Ward said Wednesday on 95.7 The Game's Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. "Most likely, they're going to play it safe and try to run some kind of quick-game route to get the



Jimmie Ward on 49ers rookie Deommodore Lenoir: 'He's going to be a great player in this league'

By David Bonilla

Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir may end up being one of the best value picks from the San Francisco 49ers' most recent draft class. He was a fifth-round draft pick, and the Niners tend to find gold in that round. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. D.J. Reed may not be on the team anymore but is proving to be a good player for the Seattle Seahawks. He was a 49ers fifth-round pick in 2018. In 2017, San Francisco drafted some little-known tight end out of Iowa named George Kittle. He's not bad either. Could Lenoir be the team's next fifth-round gem? The rookie's teammate, safety Jimmie Ward, joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. The discussion eventually led to Lenoir and the young defensive back's early dividends. The
