I’m not sure why Jimmie Ward was fined for this hit

I’m not sure why Jimmie Ward was fined for this hit

Watch the play and tell me what’s up. The close of the practice week means we start to find out who is getting fined for the previous week’s action. Even though the 49ers played on Thursday Night Football last week, it still took some time to learn that Jimmie Ward has been fined for his hit on Robert Woods. Matt Maiocco is reporting Ward was fined $24,309 for his hit on Woods. Ward was penalized for unnecessary roughness, and based on the NFL’s fine schedule, maybe it was for impermissible use of the helmet? Here is a look at the hit. The $24,309 fine amount under...

First shall be first: 49ers sign CB Williams to three-year extension

The first player signed by the 49ers’ new regime has become the first player to receive a contract extension. On Friday, the 49ers signed nickel cornerback K’Waun Williams to a three-year extension through 2020. The 49ers began their offseason overhaul by signing Williams on Feb. 22, 16 days after head coach Kyle Shanahan was hired. Williams, 26, has assumed the slot corner role previously held by Jimmie Ward, who was moved to free safety in the offseason. In three games, he has 14 tackles and two pass breakups. Williams is in his first...

What was Jimmie Ward supposed to do for this hit on Robert Woods?

What was Jimmie Ward supposed to do for this hit on Robert Woods?

He leaned down, and then Woods did as well. I don’t know what else Ward could do. The San Francisco 49ers gave up a touchdown to the Los Angeles Rams at the end of the first half, and it was preceded by an unnecessary roughness penalty on free safety Jimmie Ward. The Rams had a 1st and 10 at the 49ers 17. Jared Goff found Robert Woods over the middle, and just after Woods caught the ball, Ward came in with a huge hit. Given how the NFL is claiming they want to protect player safety, it was not entirely surprising they called Ward for the penalty. In the bang-bang moment of this hit, it...

Safeties Tartt, Ward active for 49ers vs. Rams

Safeties Tartt, Ward active for 49ers vs. Rams

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward are active for the San Francisco 49ers despite being listed as questionable on the injury report.
Tartt gets start at strong safety as Eric Reid (knee) tops 49ers inactives

Tartt gets start at strong safety as Eric Reid (knee) tops 49ers inactives

SANTA CLARA — As expected, strong safety Eric Reid (knee) headlined the list of 49ers inactives Thursday night against the Los Angeles Rams. With Reid out, the 49ers will move Jaquiski Tartt to strong safety and Jimmie Ward to free safety. That duo will be counted on to contain Rams deep-threat receivers Gerald Everett, Cooper […]

49ers’ Tartt, Ward will start at safety

The 49ers’ safety situation isn’t as dire as it appeared it might be earlier in the week. Strong safety Jaquiski Tartt, who was questionable with a neck injury, will start tonight against the Rams in place of Eric Reid, who is expected to miss multiple games with a knee injury. On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tartt was hurting and termed him questionable to play, although Tartt did play every defensive snap in a 12-9 loss at Seattle on Sunday. In addition, safety Jimmie Ward (hamstring), who was also questionable, will make his first start of the...

49ers-Rams inactives: Jaquiski Tartt active, will start next to Jimmie Ward

49ers-Rams inactives: Jaquiski Tartt active, will start next to Jimmie Ward

The 49ers and Rams released their list of inactive players for Week 3 Thursday Night Football. The San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams announced their inactives for Week 3, and safety Jaquiski Tartt is active. The 49ers safety dealt with a neck injury this week and was listed as questionable. He will start at strong safety next to Jimmie Ward, with Eric Reid inactive due to his knee injury. Eli Harold is also active after being a late addition to the injury report this week. If he had been inactive, we might have seen Pita Taumoepenu make his NFL debut. Instead, he is inactive, and...

Richard Sherman rips NFL injury reports as simply for setting gambling odds

Richard Sherman rips NFL injury reports as simply for setting gambling odds

I do love when Richard Sherman preaches on NFL hypocrisy. The San Francisco 49ers released their Week 3 injury report Wednesday afternoon, announcing Eric Reid and Reuben Foster would be out for Thursday Night Football. The announcement was not surprising given their respective knee and ankle injuries. The list also included Eli Harold, George Kittle, Jaquiski Tartt, and Jimmie Ward as questionable. We know with near certainty that Kittle and Ward will play. Tartt is very likely to play, and I’m not entirely sure what’s up with Harold. The injury report is viewed as a general...

49ers depth chart 2017: Who will be inactive vs. Rams in Week 3?

49ers depth chart 2017: Who will be inactive vs. Rams in Week 3?

The 49ers are set to play the Rams on “Thursday Night Football.” Who will be inactive for San Francisco? The San Francisco 49ers have a short week to take part in the farcical act known as Thursday Night Football. I like having football to watch in the middle of the week, but it’s a terrible system for the players, coaches and everyone involved in the actual playing of football. But it’s going to happen either way, and the Los Angeles Rams are coming to town. Against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2, the 49ers had defensive end Aaron Lynch and safety Jimmie Ward active, a change from...

49ers-Rams Madden 18 simulation

Let’s see how the 49ers do in video game land Raise your hand if you thought the 49ers were going to be in that game against the Seattle Seahawks until the 4th quarter. Ok. Now those of you who did are either incredibly optimistic where you may need help or terrible liars. Either way, I like you, and I like that you’re back to see what predictions Madden will make this week. Last week the 49ers were predicted to go down 33-5. There were a few differences made apparent when the game started: Jimmie Ward actually played (I eliminated him on a judgment call) and the 49ers O-line didn’t...
