Top 49ers News
49ers' Raheem Mostert: Back at practice
Mostert (concussion) is practicing Saturday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Mostert wasn't expected to participate in the team's preseason contest Monday against the Broncos, but the 27-year-old's practice status could change things around, particularly considering Jerick McKinnon also remains a question mark with a sore knee. The 49ers will likely be cautious with Mostert considering his expected role on special teams and as a third-down specialist, so it's safe to assume his preseason game-time status will likely come closer to Monday's 8:00 PM EST start time....

49ers' Mike Person: Sports walking boot
Person was spotted using crutches with his left foot in a walking boot Friday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Person appears to have suffered an injury to his left foot during Friday's joint practice against the Broncos. The severity of the veteran guard's injury remains undisclosed. With Joshua Garnett (finger) also managing an injury, Christian DiLauro could see reps with the first team.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Tarvarius Moore: Still competing for starting spot
Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said Thursday that Moore still has a shot at being the starting free safety even with the return of Jimmie Ward (collarbone), Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Since moving to free safety back in May, Moore has apparently been impressing the 49ers coaching staff. Ward was thought of as a shoe-in to be the team's starting free safety despite the injury, but his time away has allowed for Moore's emergence. He'll spend the final weeks of the preseason in what appears to be a legitimate competition with Ward.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Jimmie Ward: Has to compete for starting job
Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said Friday that Ward (collarbone) will have to compete for the starting free safety job with Tarvarius Moore upon his return, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Ward is slowly making his way back from a fractured collarbone, as he began participating in individual drills this week. 49ers' coaches appear to like what they have been seeing out of Moore in the meantime, however, so whenever Ward is a full go again, he will have plenty of work cut out for him before the start of the regular season....

49ers' Raheem Mostert: Remains out with concussion
Mostert (concussion) isn't at practice Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
After suffering a concussion in the preseason opener, Mostert isn't likely to play in Monday's exhibition against the Cowboys. A path to snaps on offense may have opened up with the recent news suggesting Jerick McKinnon (knee) may not be ready for Week 1. Of course, the 49ers still have Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida at the top of their depth chart, so Mostert's biggest impact may come on special teams.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Trent Taylor: Recovering from Jones fracture
Taylor (foot) is using crutches and a walking boot after undergoing surgery for a Jones fracture, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Earlier reports labeled the injury as a broken pinky toe, with the recovery timeline estimated at 4-to-6 weeks. The updated diagnosis involves a longer rehab process, and there's also an elevated risk for complications after Taylor returns to practice and games. Greg Olsen struggled with the same injury the past two seasons, while Julio Jones is one of the better-known success stories, though even he has dealt with on-and-off foot problems since having his initial surgery in 2013....

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo: Struggles through awful practice
Garoppolo was intercepted on five consecutive snaps Wednesday at practice, Grant Cohn of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports.
Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area notes that Garoppolo rebounded at the end of practice with some nice throws in the red zone and two-minute drill. Coach Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too worried about the ugly day for his starting quarterback, noting that Garoppolo will have plenty of time to work out of his slump before Week 1. This isn't the first report of the 27-year-old struggling at training camp, but all will be forgotten if he handles himself well in preseason appearances. It isn't yet clear if Garoppolo will get the start in Monday's exhibition against Denver.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Levine Toilolo: Dealing with shoulder injury
Toilolo has not practiced the past three days while he nurses shoulder soreness, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Kyle Shanahan would go on to say Wednesday that Toilolo likely won't practice the rest of the week ahead of Monday's preseason game against Denver. It's unclear how he picked up the injury, but it could have just developed from the regular wear and tear of training camp. If the 28-year-old misses Monday's game, Kaden Smith could be in line for an increased workload.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Dre Greenlaw: Nursing stinger
Greenlaw was limited to just individual drills during Wednesday's practice as he nurses a stinger, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
It's unclear how he picked up the injury, but the team is likely giving him a chance to recover following the first preseason game. The Arkansas product was selected in the fifth-round during April's draft, and is looking to secure not only a roster spot, but a prominent role in the defense. Expect the team to continue to update Greenlaw's status as his health progresses.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Joe Staley: No practice Wednesday
Staley did not practice Wednesday due to pectoral soreness, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Staley was previously limited in June minicamp due to a pectoral injury, so the 49ers are likely to take a cautious approach to his continued recovery. The veteran left tackle is primed for a starting role with the 49ers when healthy.... See More ... See Less
49ers' C.J. Beathard: Practices Wednesday
Beathard (thumb) participated in Wednesday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Beathard suffered a thumb injury during Saturday's game against the Cowboys, the severity of which kept him sidelined during Tuesday's practice. The third-year quarterback managed to return Wednesday, and will resume competing for the No. 2 quarterback role with Nick Mullens.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Nick Bosa: Light participation Wednesday
Bosa (ankle) participated in light conditioning drills Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Bosa is managing an ankle sprain suffered during practice last week. The No. 2 overall pick has now shed his walking boot and appears to have resumed a light practice workload, but remains ruled out for the preseason. If Bosa is able to keep taking steps in the right direction, it's possible that he could play Week 1.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Jimmie Ward: Making progress
Ward (collarbone) participated in individual drills during Wednesday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Ward donned full pads for the first time in training camp Wednesday while wearing a non-contact jersey, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. The veteran safety is working his way back from a fractured collarbone and is expected to start in San Francisco's secondary when fully healthy.... See More ... See Less
49ers' George Kittle: Day-to-day with calf tightness
Kittle is viewed as day-to-day with calf tightness, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Kittle wasn't able to practice Tuesday, and his absence will extend at least another day. So far, there's been nothing to suggest that his calf issue is anything major, but it could impact his chances of suiting up for Monday's preseason game against the Broncos.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Sam Young: Lands in San Francisco
Young signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday.
Young played a depth role with the Dolphins in 2018, and has also spent time with the Bills, Jaguars and Cowboys in his career. The nine-year veteran will work to earn a reserve role in San Francisco.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Jeff Wilson: Returns to practice
Wilson (calf) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Wilson suffered a calf injury early in camp, and his return to the field falls in line with the initial one- to two-week timetable. Expect the 23-year-old to get plenty of looks this preseason as he attempts to wiggle his way onto the 53-man roster of a team with plenty of talented backs ahead of him on the depth chart....

49ers' Malcolm Smith: Returns from injury
Smith (hamstring) returned to practice Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Smith missed the 49ers' first preseason contest but he could suit up for their second exhibition game against the Broncos on Monday. The oft-injured linebacker will compete for the starting outside linebacker job with rookie Dre Greenlaw this preseason.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Arik Armstead: Returns to practice
Armstead (calf) returned to practice in full Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Armstead missed the 49ers' first preseason contest but he appears on track to make his 2019 debut against the Broncos on Monday. The 25-year-old is currently competing with Solomon Thomas for an early down role after the team acquired two outside threats in Dee Ford and Nick Bosa this past offseason.... See More ... See Less
49ers' Deebo Samuel: Leaves practice Tuesday
Samuel exited Tuesday's practice early for personal reasons, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It remains to be seen how long Samuel will remain away from the team. Jordan Matthews and Jalen Hurd stand to see increased reps as long as Samuel's absence lasts. The rookie second-round pick is competing for a starting role on the outside in San Francisco's wideout corps.... See More ... See Less
49ers' C.J. Beathard: Battling thumb injury
Beathard did not practice Tuesday after suffering a thumb injury during Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Beathard had a solid outing Saturday, throwing for 141 yards, a touchdown and an interception, but he appears to have emerged with an injury. As of now, Beathard is unable to comfortably grip a football and will not be able to practice until he can.... See More ... See Less
