Richard Sherman is healthy and on a roll

Richard Sherman is healthy and on a roll

It’s safe to say he’ll be back in 2019. The past three weeks has seen San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman settling into a groove in the secondary. A calf injury slowed him down early in the season, and cost him a sizable chunk of Week 3, and then all of Week 4 and Week 7. However, in the three weeks since Week 7, the only defensive snaps he did not play were ten snaps late in the 49ers blowout win over the Raiders. This is of particular note because that stretch included the short-week turnaround from a Week 8 Sunday matchup against Arizona to a Week 9 Thursday matchup...

Ahkello Witherspoon draws criticism from Kyle Shanahan, Richard Sherman

Ahkello Witherspoon draws criticism from Kyle Shanahan, Richard Sherman

The 49ers’ second-year cornerback spoke with the media after Monday’s game, reacting to his battle with Odell Beckham Jr. and comments from Shanahan and Sherman. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon had the unenviable task of covering star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on some of Monday night’s game-defining plays in the San Francisco 49ers’ 27-23 loss to the New York Giants. Late In the third-quarter, the Giants down 20-10, quarterback Eli Manning targeted Beckham along the sideline with Witherspoon in tow. The ball was just slightly overthrown, bouncing off the tip of the receivers’...

49ers are behind Mullens

49ers are behind Mullens

Doesn’t look like there’s much of a controversy with this decision. The San Francisco 49ers have been preparing for the New York Giants on a Monday Night Football contest, but they are still talking about Nick Mullens’ near-record setting performance last Thursday to start his career. Cornerback Richard Sherman had some kind words to say on Monday from his Officialize page about how Mullens would be trying to dice them up at practice and just how hard the quarterback practiced in general. Wide receiver Pierre Garçon also chimed in from his Officialize page on about how Mullens’...

49ers promote Mabin from practice squad, sign McFadden to practice squad

49ers promote Mabin from practice squad, sign McFadden to practice squad

The 49ers are adding some secondary depth after Emmanuel Moseley’s season-ending injury. The San Francisco 49ers announced a pair of roster moves on Thursday. The team promoted cornerback Greg Mabin from the practice squad and signed cornerback Tarvarus McFadden to the practice squad. Mabin replaces Emmanuel Moseley, who was placed on injured reserve after injuring himself on a special teams in his 2018 debut with the team. Richard Sherman and Ahkello Witherspoon appear set to start once again in Week 10, so Mabin is likely going to be primarily a special teams player. The 49ers signed...

Ahkello Witherspoon will see plenty of Odell Beckham Jr. on Monday

Ahkello Witherspoon will see plenty of Odell Beckham Jr. on Monday

The San Francisco 49ers face a bad New York Giants team this coming Monday, but the Giants should put up a lot more of a fight than we saw from the Oakland Raiders last week. Eli Manning is running on fumes, but Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham, Jr., and Sterling Shepard will provide a stiff challenge to a 49ers defense that has shown signs of life, but is still inconsistent. The 49ers have settled into Ahkello Witherspoon starting opposite Richard Sherman. Witherspoon struggled and was benched for a spell, but has started three straight games and looked fairly solid in them. And now...

Kyle Shanahan’s leadership earns praise from Richard Sherman

Kyle Shanahan’s leadership earns praise from Richard Sherman

Coach Kyle Shanahan drew praise from veteran Richard Sherman after the 49ers’ 34-3 win over the Raiders. Kyle Shanahan is no stranger to adversity. His tenure with the 49ers began with nine straight losses before winning six of the last seven games thanks in large part to the acquisition of now franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The 2018 season, following Garoppolo’s season-ending torn ACL suffered in Week 3, has felt a lot like the start of 2017. Backup C.J. Beathard lost all five of his starts after taking over for Garoppolo and is now 1-9 under center for the 49ers. It wasn’t...

Trent Taylor inactive as an apparent healthy scratch, Richard Sherman active for Week 9

Trent Taylor inactive as an apparent healthy scratch, Richard Sherman active for Week 9

The 49ers will have their full offensive line and some key veterans. The San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders announced their Week 9 inactives, and the team will have some notable veterans available. Cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Pierre Garçon will both be active for Thursday Night Football. Second year wide receiver Trent Taylor will be inactive. He has dealt with a back injury this year, but was not on the injury report this week. That would suggest he is a healthy scratch. He has struggled to get going this season, so it will be interesting to see what Kyle Shanahan...

49ers roster moves suggest top of the cornerback depth chart is fine

49ers roster moves suggest top of the cornerback depth chart is fine

This bodes well for Richard Sherman in Week 9. The San Francisco 49ers made a pair of roster moves on Tuesday, releasing wide receiver Victor Bolden and cornerback Greg Mabin. They did not sign two players to add to the roster, but the expectation is they activate outside linebacker Dekoda Watson from the injured reserve list and rookie Marcell Harris from the NFI list. They have both been on the lists since the end of the preseason and are eligible to return this week. The decision to releasee Mabin offers a hint at the cornerback depth chart heading into Thursday Night Football against...

The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals released their Week 8 inactives, and as expected, cornerback Richard Sherman and running back Matt Breida are both active. Center Weston Richburg is inactive due to a knee injury. Breida was questionable after missing practice Wednesday and Thursday. Sunday morning reports suggest he will play in a limited role. This could mean more work for Raheem Mostert. Sherman got in limited work on Wednesday and Friday, and sat out Thursday’s practice. He will start at one cornerback position, with Jimmie Ward and Ahkello Witherspoon getting work at the...

Richard Sherman, Matt Breida expected to play vs. Cardinals in Week 8

The 49ers running back is expected to play at less than 100 percent. The San Francisco 49ers face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 8, and they are expected to have a couple key players available. Cornerback Richard Sherman and running back Matt Breida are both expected to play after being listed as questionable this week, according to Adam Schefter and reporter Ian Rapoport. Breida did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, and was limited on Friday. He is not expected to be 100 percent, and Schefter said he is expected to be limited on Sunday. That likely means Raheem Mostert will have a busy...
