Jimmie Ward says he will play against Buccaneers

Oct 19, 2016 at 1:21 PM--


Today, San Francisco 49ers CB Jimmie Ward stated that he would be available for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His status has been said to be week-to-week and Ward has missed three games since suffering a quadriceps strain during the second quarter of the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.


That's good news for the 49ers who may be without rookie standout Rashard Robinson, who suffered a concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. He is in the league's mandatory concussion protocol this week.

Ward has been limited in practice this week. Ward informed the media that he has been working at both cornerback and nickel this week in preparation for Tampa Bay.

With Jimmy Garoppolo mostly out of the picture in San Francisco, Trey Lance has been making progress towards becoming the leader the 49ers need him to be at quarterback, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports and the NFL Network. Schrager was a guest on The Pat McAfee Show Wednesday and gave his thoughts on the current situation surrounding Garoppolo and Lance. While the 49ers (and perhaps other interested teams) wait for Garoppolo to start throwing again following his offseason shoulder surgery, Schrager says Lance has been winning over his teammates with how he has adjusted to his expected starting role. "(Garoppolo) has not been with the team," Schrager said. "He has been, for the
