  • 49ers' Trey Sermon: Puts in another limited practice

    Sermon (concussion) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    For a second straight session, Sermon had a cap on his reps as he wore a blue non-contact jersey due to the concussion he sustained this past Sunday in Philadelphia, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic. Sermon will have to complete the NFL's protocol for head injuries to make himself available Week 3 against the Packers, but he appears to be the best bet of the 49ers' regular running backs to be active Sunday. With Raheem Mostert (knee) on IR, JaMycal Hasty out several weeks due to a high ankle sprain, and Elijah Mitchell working his way through a shoulder stinger, Sermon may be in line for his first career start this weekend. Sermon and the other three aside, San Francisco has emergency options lined up in Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick -- both are on the active roster -- while Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson are candidates to be elevated from the practice squad.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Another DNP on Thursday

    Mitchell (shoulder) didn't practice Thursday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Mitchell has yet to get on the field this week due to a shoulder injury suffered Week 2. Coach Kyle Shanahan called the issue "a little worse than a stinger," but the running back still "has a chance to go Sunday" versus the Packers, per David Lombardi of The Athletic. It stands to wonder if Mitchell will need to practice in some capacity Friday to do so, but the 49ers are prepared to roll out a reconfigured backfield with Raheem Mostert (knee) on injured reserve and JaMycal Hasty out for multiple games due to a high ankle sprain. Fellow rookie RB Trey Sermon (concussion) has put together back-to-back limited sessions and seems like the best bet of the regulars to play in Week 3. That quartet aside, Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick are the healthy options on the active roster, while Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson reside on the practice squad.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Not seen Thursday

    Mitchell (shoulder) wasn't present at the start of Thursday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    After getting banged up Week 2 at Philadelphia, Mitchell was diagnosed with what coach Kyle Shanahan called a shoulder injury that's "a little worse than a stinger," per David Lombardi of The Athletic. There's still a chance Mitchell gets cleared to play Sunday night against the Packers, as does Trey Sermon, who is in the concussion protocol but was limited Wednesday. Elsewhere in the backfield, Raheem Mostert had season-ending knee surgery after Week 1, and JaMycal Hasty is slated to miss multiple games with a high-ankle sprain, leaving Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick as the only healthy RBs on the active roster. Meanwhile, Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson are stashed on the 49ers' practice squad as potential elevations.

  • 49ers' Josh Norman: Practices fully Wednesday

    Norman (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Norman was considered day-to-day after picking up the injury during Sunday's win over the Eagles, but his quick return to practice indicates it's not a serious concern. The 33-year-old played 96 percent of the defensives snaps in his season debut, but he could have a reduced role Sunday against the Packers if Emmanuel Moseley (knee) is cleared to take the field.

  • 49ers' Emmanuel Moseley: Limited participant Wednesday

    Mosely (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Moseley has missed the first two games of the season but has now put in two straight limited practices after participating at Friday's session. The 25-year-old should be able to make his season debut this weekend if able to advance to full participation Thursday or Friday.

  • 49ers' Trey Sermon: Officially limited Wednesday

    Sermon (concussion) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Sermon came out of Week 2 with a concussion, but head coach Kyle Shanahan noted Wednesday that the rookie third-round pick was "trending in a good direction" as he practiced in a blue non-contact jersey, per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. The 49ers already have one running back out for the season [Raheem Mostert (knee)] and another dealing with a high-ankle sprain (JaMycal Hasty). Meanwhile, fellow rookie sixth-rounder Elijah Mitchell is tending to a shoulder injury that Shanahan described as "worse than a stinger," according to David Lombardi of The Athletic. Sermon will need to pass all five phases of the protocol for head injuries to suit up Sunday night against the Packers, but with so many unknowns in San Francisco's backfield it's unclear how the snaps and carries will break down at the position. Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick are the only other backs on the 49ers' active roster, while Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson are candidates to be elevated from the practice squad.

  • 49ers' Trey Sermon: Likely to be limited Wednesday

    Sermon (concussion) is in line to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Sermon was dinged on the helmet during his first potential carry as a pro this past Sunday -- the play was nullified by an Eagles penalty -- suffering a concussion in the process. Head coach Kyle Shanahan relayed to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com on Wednesday that Sermon is "trending in a good direction," but the rookie third-round selection will don a blue non-contact jersey to begin Week 3 prep. Meanwhile, Raheem Mostert is out for the season following knee surgery, Elijah Mitchell's Week 2 shoulder injury is considered worse than a stinger, and JaMycal Hasty is expected to miss multiple weeks with a high-ankle sprain. Beyond that quartet, Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick are the only other backs on the 49ers' active roster, while Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson are on the practice squad.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Not practicing Wednesday

    Mitchell (shoulder) won't take part in practice Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Mitchell was forced out of the 49ers' Week 2 win at Philadelphia with a shoulder concern, but he returned when fellow rookie running back Trey Sermon suffered a concussion. In the interim, tests have revealed that Mitchell's injury is "a little worse than a stinger," but he "has a chance to go Sunday" against the Packers, head coach Kyle Shanahan told David Lombardi of The Athletic. As the 49ers backfield currently stands, Raheem Mostert (knee) is on injured reserve, JaMycal Hasty has a high-ankle sprain that's slated to sideline him for multiple games, and Sermon is progressing through the concussion protocol, seemingly making him the healthiest of the four. Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick are the only other backs on the active roster, while Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson are candidates to be elevated from the practice squad.

  • 49ers' Fred Warner: Makes seven stops

    Warner made seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 17-11 win over the Eagles.

    Warner is now up to 18 tackles through two games, and he's considered a high-end IDP option at linebacker after producing at least 118 stops in each of his first three campaigns. The Packers are up next in Week 3.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Tacks on two sacks

    Bosa posted three tackles (two solo), two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's 17-11 win over the Eagles.

    Bosa has shown no ill effects from the torn ACL he sustained in Week 2 of the 2020 season, as he has recorded three sacks through two games. The 49ers will host a Week 3 matchup against the Packers, who are still without All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari.
