  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Broken collarbone confirmed

    Ward fractured his collarbone during Thursday's practice and is out for at least the remainder of spring workouts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Ward suffered the injury while making a diving catch for a ball. He's broken his collarbone before in 2016 and has also broken each of his foot and forearm on two separate occasions throughout his career. The 49ers gave him a one-year deal worth $4.5 million with $3 million in guarantees this spring with hopes he could stay healthy, despite Ward having finished four of his first five seasons on injured reserve. It seems the team can still get a sizable return on its investment if Ward is only sidelined through spring workouts. It's not clear how long it took him to recover from the broken collarbone the first time around since he fractured it near the end of that year.

  • 49ers' Jimmie Ward: Feared to have broken collarbone

    The 49ers fear Ward broke his collarbone while diving for a catch during Thursday's practice, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Ward is headed for X-rays and a full evaluation. More information on his status should be available in the next day or so. If his collarbone is indeed broken, Ward -- under contract for only one year -- could be sidelined for a significant portion of the upcoming season. Ward has finished four of his first five seasons on injured reserve.

  • 49ers' Nick Bosa: Out until training camp

    Bosa was diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring strain that will likely sideline him until training camp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    A Grade 1 sprain is less severe than a Grade 2 or 3 hamstring strain. While this is a setback that isn't ideal for Bosa's rookie-year preparation, it's also far from the worst-case scenario for the 49ers and the No. 2 overall pick alike. With that said, the narrative could change if his absence lingers into training camp.

  • 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo: Cleared for 7-on-7 drills

    Garoppolo (knee) is doing 7-on-7 work at OTAs, putting him on pace for a return to 11-on-11s at the start of training camp, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Garoppolo plans to wear a brace over his surgically repaired left knee in 2019. He may not regain his usual mobility until late in the season or even the following year, but everything seems to be on track for Week 1, at which point he'll be 11.5 months removed from tearing his ACL. The 27-year-old quarterback is in his second full offseason under coach Kyle Shanahan, leading an offense that added running back Tevin Coleman and wide receivers Deebo Samuel, Jalen Hurd (knee) and Jordan Matthews.

  • 49ers' Malcolm Smith: Out for OTAs

    Smith hasn't been participating in the 49ers' OTAs this week due to an Achilles' injury, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    It's unclear when Smith picked up the injury, but it's apparently serious enough to hold him out of the early stages of offseason training. The 29-year-old saw action in 12 games for San Francisco last season, recording 35 tackles (22 solo). If healthy for training camp, Smith should be in contention for a starting role at linebacker.
