Some question marks on the 49ers first injury report of Week 3

Some question marks on the 49ers first injury report of Week 3

The San Francisco 49ers released their first practice participation report of Week 3, and there are some notable names present and missing. As mentioned earlier, Malcolm Smith returned to practice and was not even included in the “full participant” list. That suggests he is 100 percent, and should be good to play this Sunday. Safety Jaquiski Tartt was a DNP after injuring his shoulder late in Sunday’s win over the Detroit Lions. Tartt dealt with the shoulder injury previously, so this will be something to monitor. The Thursday session will be key for him getting on the field this...

49ers secondary has two question marks heading into Week 2 vs. Chiefs

49ers secondary has two question marks heading into Week 2 vs. Chiefs

This is not ideal timing. The San Francisco 49ers travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3, and their secondary has question marks at precisely the wrong time.

The team will know more about Tartt later this week, but Shanahan said on Monday that if he can’t go, Jimmie Ward could end up as an option next to Adrian Colbert. Jimmie Ward is a backup at all of the defensive back positions. Antone Exum came...

Are the 49ers better, worse, or the same at safety from a year ago?

Are the 49ers better, worse, or the same at safety from a year ago?

They’ve definitely gotten cheaper. The San Francisco 49ers let a productive player walk in free agency this year. It wasn’t that Eric Reid did anything wrong, the 49ers were simply fortunate enough to have spent enough draft picks to find someone to stick in Jaquiski Tartt. When Adrian Colbert locked up the free safety position, the writing was on the wall and Reid’s services were not needed The 49ers have a great duo with Colbert and Tartt. Behind them after roster cuts, they had rookies D.J. Reed and Marcell Harris. Reed is transitioning to the role from cornerback in college and...

Is 49ers Kyle Shanahan done with injury-prone Jimmie Ward?

Injury-prone defensive back Jimmie Ward will finish the exhibition season on the sideline with a quadriceps issue but 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan defended him anyhow.
