49ers' DeForest Buckner: Expected back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buckner (ankle) is expected to be a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The team's concerns that Buckner could be sidelined for an extended period of time seemingly took a backseat Wednesday once it was clear Buckner would be returning to practice. His return hints that he'll be available for the season opener.

49ers' Jimmie Ward: Expected back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is expected to return to practice as a limited participant Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan indicated that Ward will come off the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday and practice, albeit in a limited fashion. The team has not decided whether Ward will play in Sunday's preseason tilt with Minnesota, but things appear to be trending upward.

49ers' Eli Harold: Could start this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harold could usurp Ahmad Brooks on the depth chart at starting left outside linebacker this season, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Brooks has been lining up with the first-unit on defense and appears to be the better fit to begin the season as a starter, but Harold's upside and club control that extends past 2017 has kept him in the mix to start. The 2015 third-round pick has contributed just 51 combined tackles in his first two season as a pro while proving to be an injury liability (including a concussion earlier this preseason). Whichever linebacker is officially named the starter this season will see a slight bump in IDP value.

49ers' Ahmad Brooks: Competing for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooks has been lining up at left outside linebacker with the first-team defense this preseason, but he isn't a lock to start over Eli Harold as the 49ers look to the future, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

The 33-year-old's track record of success and versatility make him the best fit to start in San Francisco's new 4-3 defense, but the final decision on the left outside linebacker job may not necessarily come down to performance. Harold represents a younger and cheaper option compared to Brooks and his expiring six-year contract. If the veteran holds onto the starting job, he could potentially surpass last year's mark of 53 tackles while serving as a more-traditional linebacker.

49ers' Jimmie Ward: Expected to return to action soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (hamstring) is expected to return to practice within the next week, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Ward will go through a workout Monday and Tuesday with the hopes of returning to practice Wednesday. Given the team's optimism, it's likely that Ward will be 100 percent for the season opener where he's expected to be a key cog for the 49ers' defense this year.
