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.

On Tuesday, things got snippy between San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and linebacker Fred Warner. The two were involved in scuffles during practice, forcing head coach Kyle Shanahan to pause the session and address his team. "It's hot today, so tempers flaring today," Aiyuk said after practice. "But it's football. Football season's here. ... The defense came out here with a great intensity the last couple of days, so we've got to wake the offense up one way or another." Aside from the heated on-field interactions with one of the league's best linebackers, Aiyuk has impressed his defensive teammates during training camp. One defender went as far as

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans spoke with reporters after Wednesday's practice. His unit is tasked with making sure second-year quarterback Trey Lance gets all the training camp looks necessary to prepare for the regular season. Ryans may coach the defensive stars on the 49ers roster, but that doesn't mean he doesn't interact with Lance. The coach shared what those brief conversations are like. "For me and my interactions with Trey, I just always try to encourage him," Ryans told the media. "I think he's been doing a great job. Anytime in passing with him, it's always just a word of encouragement to keep going because I think he is really doing a great job of really taking hold of our offense, leading those guys.

Why George Kittle loves going against Jimmie Ward; 49ers safety forecasts 'Pick City'

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice and started the conversation by praising a defensive teammate—Jimmie Ward. Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against
