  • 49ers' Dee Ford: Not progressing well, may be cut

    49ers general manager John Lynch said Monday that he doesn't have "a lot of hope" that Ford (back) will be able to contribute on the field during the 2022 campaign, Nick Wagoner of reports.

    Ford suffered a back injury in October last season and didn't progress the way San Francisco would've hoped before he was eventually shut down in mid-December. Wagoner relays that this continues to be the case, and it's gotten to the point that the 49ers don't believe a return in 2022 is possible. The team already restructured Ford's contract to open enough space for them to start the new league year, but by releasing the veteran pass rusher after June 1, the team could save an extra $1.12 million, per David Lombardi of The Athletic. Ford has made 18 appearances across three seasons with the 49ers, totaling 22 tackles, 9.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.

  • 49ers' Dee Ford: Won't return in 2021

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that Ford (back) won't return in 2021, Nick Wagoner of reports.

    Ford had been sidelined since late October, and he didn't show significant progress in his recovery from a back injury recently. The 30-year-old appeared in six games during the 2021 campaign and totaled five tackles (three solo), three sacks and a forced fumble.

  • 49ers' Dee Ford: Not showing signifcant progress

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he would be surprised if Ford (back) is back this season, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    The 49ers must decide whether to activate Ford from injured reserve by Wednesday or allow him to spend the rest of the season sidelined, the latter which appears likely based on Shanahan's comments. If he is indeed done for the year, then Ford will finish the 2021 campaign with three sacks in six games.

  • 49ers' Dee Ford: Not ready for game action

    Ford (back) was not activated from injured reserve prior to Sunday's matchup against the Vikings, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Ford was designated to return from injured reserve Thursday, which allows him to practice with the team. However, he's not yet ready for game action, so his next chance to take the field will be Week 13 against Seattle. Whenever he suits up next, it will be his first time being active since Week 7.
