There is more fallout after another injury-plagued season: The 49ers have fired head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson, who had spent the past 13 seasons with the organization. Last week, the 49ers parted ways with head strength and condition coach Ray Wright, who was hired in 2017. The 49ers placed 19 players on injured reserve this season, which matched the 10th most in the NFL. In 2017, they placed 22 players on IR, which was the sixth most in the league. "Following a thorough evaluation, we have determined that now is the right time for a reboot in the structure and protocols of our health and performance areas," general manager John Lynch said.
