  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Best season of career

    Ward wrapped up 77 tackles (51 solo) with six pass defenses, two interceptions and a touchdown across 16 games with the 49ers in 2021.

    Ward has always been a skilled free safety, but he managed to finally combine his strong play with a healthy regular season. Barring any drastic roster changes this offseason, the 30-year-old should enter the final year of his contract in San Francisco as the team's starting free safety in 2022.

    The 49ers activated Ward (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Lands on COVID list

    San Francisco placed Ward on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Ready to play Monday

    Ward (quadriceps) is active for Monday's game against the Rams.

    Ward missed last week's loss to the Cardinals and was questionable for Monday Night Football, but he's been cleared to take the field. The 30-year-old should reclaim his starting role at free safety for the 49ers.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Listed as questionable

    Ward (quadriceps) is questionable for Monday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Ward returned to practice in a limited capacity Friday and Saturday, but he'll still carry an injury designation for Week 10. If he's forced to miss a second straight game Monday, his absence would leave San Francisco very shorthanded in the secondary.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Misses practice

    Ward (quadriceps) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

    Ward has been nursing a quad strain he sustained in Week 8 versus the Bears. He was able to play through it in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, but his non-participation at Thursday's practice indicates his status still needs to be monitored going forward.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Will not play Sunday

    Ward (quadriceps) will not play Sunday against Arizona, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Ward picked up the injury Sunday against the Bears, but it was originally thought he might be able to play in Week 9. This is a big blow to a 49ers secondary that is already missing multiple pieces. Tavon Wilson will likely see a large increase in snaps while Ward is on the shelf.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Could play vs. Arizona

    Ward (quadriceps) has a small chance to return in time for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    Lombardi notes that San Francisco isn't optimistic about Ward's prospects of returning in time for Week 9, stating the more likely scenario is that he remains sidelined for 1-to-2 weeks. He picked up a Grade 1 quad strain in Sunday's matchup against Chicago.
