Dee Ford hit the practice field with his San Francisco 49ers teammates today — the team's first practice of training camp. The veteran pass rusher didn't participate in team drills but did get some work during individual drills. Ford appeared in just one game last season before being sidelined for the remaining games due to neck and back problems.
