Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday he's keeping his "fingers crossed" that Ford (neck) will be ready for the start of training camp in late July, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

The 30-year-old came out of last year's season opener with a neck injury and missed the rest of the year, but he's apparently made significant progress in his recovery in the months since. According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, Ford has been working out at the team facility since February, but he'll be away from the team this week during OTAs while visiting a back specialist.
