49ers’ Shanahan ‘feels confident’ Foster will make return

49ers’ Shanahan ‘feels confident’ Foster will make return

Here’s one reason to anticipate an 0-6 team’s seventh game: Reuben Foster is expected to return to the winless 49ers on Sunday. Foster, the dynamic rookie inside linebacker who was injured after he played 11 snaps in the season opener, is on track to return against the Cowboys at Levi’s Stadium. “He’s not 100 percent ready to go, but I feel very optimistic about it,” Kyle Shanahan said. “He had another good practice today. As long as there’s not any setbacks here over the next 48 hours or whatever it is, I feel pretty confident.” ...

Broncos sign WR Tim Patrick to practice squad

Broncos sign WR Tim Patrick to practice squad

The Broncos signed wide receiver Tim Patrick to their 10-man practice squad Friday, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis. To make room for Patrick, the team will likely part ways with receiver River Cracraft, who suffered an injury, according to Klis. Patrick (6-5, 210 pounds) signed with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Utah earlier this year but failed to make their final roster. During his three seasons at Utah, Patrick hauled in 61 receptions for 888 yards and five touchdowns. All five of those touchdowns came in 2016, as did 45 receptions and 711 receiving yards. Denver has...

49ers: Self-deprecating Jed York on his ‘bad coaching hires and decisions’

When asked Thursday if the 49ers had sponsors who were upset about players who have protested during the national anthem, CEO Jed York was surprisingly funny and self-deprecating. “We certainly heard some of that from people,” York said on KNBR. “But I’ll say in full honesty our bottom line has been hurt much more by bad coaching hires and decisions by me than anything that has happened here (with protests).” It was a surprisingly raw admission from York, who has employed four head coaches while the 49ers have lost 35 of their last 43 games dating...

49ers’ Jed York discusses progressive views; Kaepernick’s collusion case

Last year, Jed York publicly supported his protesting quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, and matched his $1 million donation to underserved communities. This season, the 49ers CEO had perhaps the most strongly worded statement in response to President Trump’s inflammatory comments about protesting NFL players, and said 49ers players would not be forced to stand during the national anthem. York’s stance is in opposition to many of his peers. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, for example, has threatened to bench players who don’t stand for the anthem.
