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.

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.

49ers' Dee Ford: Limited on estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (quadriceps/hamstring) was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated injury report, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford managed to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against Green Bay, so there's reason to suspect that his limitations are mostly precautionary. Assuming he avoids a setback in the next two weeks, the 28-year-old can be considered on track to play his usual role as a pass-rush specialist in the Super Bowl.

49ers' Dee Ford: Clear of injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (quadriceps/hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's NFC Championship Game against Green Bay.

Ford began the week not practicing due to the quadriceps and hamstring injuries, but he was able to progress to full participation Friday and avoid the questionable tag. The 28-year-old had a sack last week against the Vikings in his first game action since Week 14 and should serve in his usual role as a pass-rush specialist this weekend.

49ers' Dee Ford: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ford didn't practice Wednesday, so Thursday's limited session represents a tangible step in the right direction. He'll have one more opportunity to practice fully Friday and enter the NFC Championship Game against Green Bay without an injury designation.

49ers' Dee Ford: Not practicing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) isn't participating in Wednesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said that the situation surrounding Ford's hamstring injury hasn't changed at all. Given that the veteran defensive end was able to suit up for the divisional-round win over Minnesota, he appears on track to play in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers. Ford will have two more opportunities to practice in some capacity before the 49ers decide whether he'll carry a designation into the contest.

49ers' Dee Ford: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) is available for Saturday's matchup with the Vikings, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford was limited at practice throughout the week, but he will give it a go. As a result, the 49ers' stellar defensive line will be at full strength.

49ers' Dee Ford: Questionable for divisional round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's NFC divisional-round contest against the Vikings, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford kicked off the week with back-to-back limited practices, so his questionable tag doesn't come as much of a surprise. The 28-year-old appears to have a fair shot at suiting up against Minnesota on Saturday, in which case he'll likely play a rotational role at defensive end.

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

Ford (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ford is practicing in a limited fashion for a second straight day, keeping him on track for Saturday's game against the Vikings. Coach Kyle Shanahan previously expressed optimism about the 28-year-old's availability for this weekend, and there's been no indication he's suffered any setbacks. Ford appears to be trending in the right direction, but he could fully avoid an injury designation if he's able to practice without limitations Thursday.

49ers' Dee Ford: Limited during Tuesday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Ford missed the last three regular-season games, and he's had an extra week to recover since the 49ers secured a bye. Coach Kyle Shanahan has expressed optimism that Ford will be able to play in Saturday's divisional-round matchup versus the Vikings, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports reports. If Ford can elevate to full participation, it'll clear all doubts about his status, but he seems to be on the right track regardless.

49ers' Dee Ford: Coach hopeful for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed that he's optimistic Ford (quadriceps/hamstring) will be ready for the divisional playoff round Jan. 11, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford has dealt with a quadriceps injury for almost the entire year, and he's missed five of the last six games. The team hopes a bye week in playoffs will be enough to get him back into the fold. Ford hasn't played more than 27 defensive snaps in a game since Week 1, so his playing time will likely be limited if he's able to return.

49ers' Dee Ford: Won't face Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Seahawks, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ford is not practicing Thursday, putting him on track to miss a third straight contest due to his lingering hamstring injury. The 28-year-old is targeting a return to the field for the 49ers' first postseason contest.

December 25, 2019 04:56 PM
49ers' Dee Ford: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford has missed two consecutive games with a hamstring injury. He'll probably need to return to the field Thursday or Friday in order to have any chance of playing in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

December 20, 2019 03:28 PM
49ers' Dee Ford: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (quadriceps) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford was unable to practice this week and will therefore miss what is essentially a fifth consecutive game with the injury. The 28-year-old will likely need to get some practice in next week in order to suit up against Seattle in Week 17.

49ers' Dee Ford: Sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) is not participating in the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford appears on track to miss his third straight practice, but he did manage to participate in drills off to the side Thursday, according to Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News. It's looking likely that the veteran defensive end will forced to miss a second consecutive contest, in which case Solomon Thomas would likely see another uptick in snaps.

49ers' Dee Ford: Unfit to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ford missed consecutive practices, and it's increasingly unlikely he's ready to go by Saturday's game against the Rams. When Ford's in the lineup, he's a disruptive threat with 6.5 sacks over 11 games despite averaging just 21 defensive snaps per contest. During Ford's absence, Solomon Thomas was afforded an increase in usage and figures to retain the role if Ford can't go again.

49ers' Dee Ford: Does not practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (hamstring) was unable to practice Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

The 49ers merely held a walk-through Tuesday, but it's not a good sign that Ford is still sidelined. He'll most likely need to get on the practice field in at least a limited capacity this week in order to suit up against the Rams.

December 13, 2019 11:28 PM
49ers' Dee Ford: Won't play against Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Ford was unable to practice this week and will miss his third game out of the last four. Solomon Thomas played 33 snaps after Ford left Week 14's contest against the Saints and will likely continue to be the primary replacement for the 28-year-old.
