49ers' Dee Ford: Likely done for the year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that Ford (neck) is "unlikely to play this season," Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Shanahan said the same of fellow defensive end Ronald Blair (knee) and center Weston Richburg (knee). Ford's neck injury has kept him sidelined since Week 1, and given that his contract has a potential out after the 2020 season, it's possible that he doesn't suit up with the 49ers again.

49ers' Dee Ford: Expected to sit until close to bye
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (neck) isn't expected to return until sometime around San Francisco's Week 11 bye, per coach Kyle Shanahan, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The same is true for cornerback Richard Sherman (calf), who is also on IR. Ford can safely be ruled out of San Francisco's next three games, which occur in a 12-day span starting Sunday against New England, but a slightly faster than expected recovery could see him suit up against the Saints in Week 10.

49ers' Dee Ford: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed Ford (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford will miss at least three weeks as he recovers from a neck injury that has kept him out of the last two games. The 49ers are quite banged up on the defensive line, so expect Dion Jordan, Ezekiel Ansah and Dekoda Watson to continue taking on increased duties behind starters Arik Armstead and Kerry Hyder.

49ers' Dee Ford: Candidate for injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said he'll decide whether to put Ford (back) on injured reserve within the next couple days, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 29-year-old has missed the past two games with the back issues, and it appears he isn't particularly close to being game ready. Ford would be sidelined for at least three weeks if placed on injured reserve, and he's unlikely to play Week 4 even if the team opts not to make the move.

49ers' Dee Ford: Ruled out against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Giants, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers will have a new look at defensive end in Week 3 since Ford will miss a second straight game and Nick Bosa (torn ACL) has been ruled out for the year. Kerry Hyder is expected to start Sunday while Dion Jordan and Ezekiel Ansah rotate in.

49ers' Dee Ford: DNP to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) did not practice Wednesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ford's lack of participation in Wednesday's practice reinforces the notion that he's trending in the wrong direction for Week 3. If Ford is indeed unable to suit up against the Giants on Sunday, new teammates Ezekiel Ansah and Dekoda Watson will be in line to handle significant roles right off the bat.

49ers' Dee Ford: Unlikely to play Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) is expected to miss Sunday's game versus the Giants, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The injuries keep stacking up for the 49ers' defensive front, as both DE Nick Bosa and DT Solomon Thomas have been ruled out for the season with torn ACLs. Kerry Hyder is slated to start opposite Arik Armstead on the defensive line, and both newly acquired Ezekiel Ansah and Dekoda Watson will likely have roles.

49ers' Dee Ford: Dealing with back issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan clarified Ford's injury as a back issue Monday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 29-year-old sat out Sunday and was said to be dealing with neck spasms, but it's apparently more of a back injury. Ford's availability for Week 3 likely won't receive much clarity until the 49ers return to practice Wednesday, but if available he figures to be a significant factor in the pass rush with Nick Bosa (knee) and Solomon Thomas (knee) going down with potentially serious injuries.

49ers' Dee Ford: Unavailable against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Jets, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ford was unable to practice Thursday or Friday, and although he entered the weekend questionable, he's ultimately been deemed unfit to play. The 49ers' DE depth will take a hit, as Kerry Hyder -- who logged 33 snaps in Week 1 -- will be the primary backup to Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead on Sunday.

49ers' Dee Ford: Questionable for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (neck) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Ford will be a game-time call for the battle of the league's two most injury-riddled teams. The decorated pass rusher failed to get to Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray in Week 1, but Ford should find more success against an underwhelming Jets offensive line if he suits up.

49ers' Dee Ford: Status for Week 2 uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford had an MRI on Thursday after missing practice due to a stiff neck, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

General manager John Lynch said Friday on KNBR that Ford's status for Sunday's game against the Jets will be unclear until the 49ers receive word on his test results. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh previously downplayed the severity of Ford's issue, per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, but at this point the possibility of the veteran pass rusher being forced to miss time can't be ruled out.

49ers' Dee Ford: Nursing neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (neck) did not practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford was a new addition to Thursday's injury report, but Wagoner notes that defensive coordinator Robert Saleh downplayed the severity of his neck issue. The extent of Ford's participation in Friday's practice will serve as an indication of his chances of suiting up against the Jets on Sunday.

49ers' Dee Ford: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (calf) was active in Monday's team practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that he would be surprised if Ford wasn't able to play Week 1, and the early availability in the practice week confirms that sentiment. The veteran speed rusher was running on a flat tire down the stretch last year, but offseason surgery should help him come out of the gates strong. Ford possesses double-digit sack potential -- even as a situational pass rusher -- if he can stay on the field all season.

49ers' Dee Ford: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he would be surprised if Ford (calf) wasn't available for Week 1, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford tweaked his calf during practice last week but wasn't expected to be out very long. At this point, it's still safe to assume that Ford will be ready to rock when the season begins Sept. 13 against the Cardinals, barring any injury setbacks.

49ers' Dee Ford: Shouldn't be out long
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Kyle Shanahan relayed Ford dealt with calf irritation and is day-to-day, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford tweaked his calf during one-on-one pass-rushing drills Sunday, but it's good news that he should be back soon and ready for Week 1 at the very least. The seventh-year pro was hampered by quadriceps/hamstring injuries last season and still managed 6.5 sacks through 11 games.

49ers' Dee Ford: Exits practice early Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford tweaked his leg in Sunday's practice, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Lombardi speculated it was an ankle or calf injury, and if it's a serious injury, there should be more details soon. Ford battled a hamstring/quadriceps injury for nearly the entire 2019 season, but he still averaged 21 snaps per game over 11 contests. The 49ers' defensive front is banged up, however, as Nick Bosa (undisclosed), Arik Armstead (back) and D.J. Jones (concussion) are all on the mend.

49ers' Dee Ford: Healthy after knee procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford is fully healthy after undergoing "a pretty extensive cleanup" procedure on his knee shortly after Super Bowl LIV, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

The 29-year-old missed time down the stretch with hamstring and quadriceps injuries throughout the season -- though he played in all three playoff games -- and he also dealt with knee tendinitis that led to the surgery. Ford played in 11 games last year but was limited to 232 defensive snaps, but he still recorded 6.5 sacks. He could remain in a situational role in 2020 with Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead returning as the starting defensive ends, but Ford still figures to be more involved with a healthy start to the season.

49ers' Dee Ford: Injury limits debut with new club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford finished with 14 tackles (10 solo), 6.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over 11 games during the 2019 regular season.

Ford teamed up with rookie Nick Bosa and DeForest Buckner to create the league's best pass-rushing defensive line. The 28-year-old had his season stunted due to a hamstring injury that never fully healed even after his return during the playoffs. An offseason of rest should give Ford enough time to heal up for the 2020 campaign, but his IDP value is limited due to minuscule tackle totals as a situational -- albeit elite -- pass rusher.

49ers' Dee Ford: Limited again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Ford put together a trio of limited practices this week. He'll have nine more days to get as close to 100 percent health as possible ahead of the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, including three more chances to increase his practice activity.

January 23, 2020 06:08 PM
49ers' Dee Ford: Limited in Thursday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (quadriceps) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford has now logged back-to-back limited practices, though Wednesday's session was merely an estimate. The 28-year-old will have a week and a half to ramp up his activity ahead of the Super Bowl on Feb. 2. He's on track to play his usual role as a pass-rush specialist.
