49ers injury report, Week 13: Quinton Patton, Aaron Lynch are the only question marks

We break down the 49ers final injury report as they prepare to face the Chicago Bears. The San Francisco 49ers released their final injury report for Week 13, and aside from the lengthy injured reserve list, they are getting healthier. The team announced Quinton Patton and Aaron Lynch as questionable, while the rest of the roster did not appear on the final injury report. Patton suffered a concussion in Week 12, and has been working his way through the NFL’s concussion protocol. He sat out Tuesday and Wednesday practice, and has been limited in the non-contact jersey Thursday and Friday....

More 49ers Rumors & News

Chip Kelly says to take him “at face value.”

This is the transcript of Chip Kelly’s Week-13 Thursday press conference from Orlando, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department.   Where is WR Quinton Patton as far as the protocol goes? “I couldn’t tell you exactly where he is. I know he started to resume, I think, cardiovascular work. So, that’s kind of where he […]

Kelly’s protege also fields Oregon questions; Patton returns

Central Florida head coach Scott Frost, whose school is hosting the 49ers before they visit Chicago on Sunday, said he’s not in line to replace Mark Helfrich, who was fired Tuesday. Frost said he hadn’t been contacted by the school and wasn’t interested in leaving UCF after one season. The fact that Frost, 41, a rookie head coach, was being floated as a candidate suggests that he learned plenty under Kelly, his boss from 2009-12 at Oregon. Frost was a standout quarterback at Nebraska who played five seasons in the NFL as a defensive back. The 49ers, who have spent the week...

Who is Chris Jones? For starters, 49ers DT is tough guy

ORLANDO - Nearly two years ago, in a practice leading up to Super Bowl XLIX, then-Patriots defensive tackle Chris Jones simultaneously felt a pop in his calf and his injured muscle contract. Jones gritted through 14 snaps in the Super Bowl with a torn calf muscle that required surgery, a diagnosis he learned of a week later when he had a second MRI. Jones, who was claimed off waivers by the 49ers on Nov. 8 and made his debut with an impressive start Sunday in a loss to Miami, has dealt with more pain since winning that hard-earned Super Bowl ring. On Sunday, he started for the 49ers in...

Chip Kelly: “I have not talked to anybody at Oregon except for Mark Helfrich.”

This is the transcript of Chip Kelly’s Week-13 Wednesday press conference from Orlando, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department.   What was your reaction when you heard of the move that Oregon made yesterday with former University of Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich? “I just felt bad for Mark. I love him like a brother. […]

Bust to keeper? 49ers’ McDonald making big plays in contract year

ORLANDO — Vance McDonald has played in 16 games, a full NFL season, since the 49ers traded Vernon Davis a year ago and made him their primary tight end. In his last 16 games, McDonald has 45 catches for 663 yards and seven touchdowns, which are decent figures. The 2013 second-round pick had struggled mightily to replace Delanie Walker, who finished his rookie contract in 2012 and signed with Tennessee, where he’s flourished. Not surprisingly, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke, whose shaky job security is heavily tied to the success of his draft picks, recently hailed McDonald’s...

49ers’ Chip Kelly says he’s not returning to Oregon

Today, less than 24 hours after Oregon fired head coach Mark Helfrich, the 49ers head coach responded “no” when asked if there was any chance he would be Oregon’s next head coach. Three weeks ago, Kelly offered the same sentiment when asked about leaving the NFL to return to college. Kelly is also close friends with Nike founder, Phil Knight, a massive Oregon donor, who attended the 49ers’ home game against Tampa Bay on Oct. 23. On Nov. 8, Kelly noted Knight also attended games when he was the Eagles head coach from 2013-15. “I haven’t talked to a college since I’ve been...

Tracing 49ers’ downfall to a fateful play in 2012 playoffs

Today we’re going to play the what-if game. First, some background: Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012. The day the 49ers beat the New Orleans Saints 36-32 in the NFC Divisional Round of the playoffs. One of the greatest days in 49ers franchise history, and one of the darkest days as well. Click here to read the […]

Colin Kaepernick: “I’m getting more and more comfortable in this offense.”

This is the transcript of Colin Kaepernick’s Week-13 press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department.   How are you enjoying the humidity? “I’m all about the humidity and heat. A little easier to get warmed up. A little easier to get going. Feels good out there.”   Yeah, that’s what TE Vance McDonald was […]

Kaepernick’s hot streak makes staying with 49ers more likely

ORLANDO - Colin Kaepernick didn’t vote in the presidential election and his approval levels probably didn’t rise after he recently spelled out his feelings on Fidel Castro.

Curtis Modkins on the 49ers’ offense: “We’re making good progress.”

This is the transcript of Curtis Modkins’ Week-13 press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department.   Opening comments: “Wow, this is a great setup, isn’t it? It’s unbelievable. I’ve been here before. This is a really great campus. If you guys get a chance, you should walk around and check it out. But, awful […]

Jim O’Neil on the 49ers’ D against Miami: “There were some definite positives.”

This is the transcript of Jim O’Neil’s Week-13 press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department.   Opening comments: “We’ve got a great setup down here. I think our operations staffs did a hell-of-a job kind of making the transition as easy as it could in the hotel. So, kudos to them. As far as […]

O’Neil addresses changes to 49ers’ improved run defense

ORLANDO - After allowing an NFL-record seven straight 100-yard rushers, the 49ers have held two of their past three opponents to under 100 yards on the ground. Today, defensive coordinator Jim O’Neil was asked if Baalke’s assessment was correct. O’Neil said changes had been made to assist an inside linebacker corps decimated by the loss of NaVorro Bowman and Ray-Ray Armstrong to season-ending injuries. Outside linebacker Eli Harold (toe), wide receiver Quinton Patton (concussion) and defensive lineman Ronald Blair (undisclosed) were not participating at the start of...

49ers GM Trent Baalke: ‘I feel bad for the fans’

Before the 49ers’ franchise-record 10th straight loss, a 31-24 setback at Miami on Sunday, Baalke went on KNBR with team broadcasters Ted Robinson and Tim Ryan and said ownership shouldn’t be faulted for the 1-10 season. Baalke, whose job security is in question, also backed CEO Jed York in a conversation with reporters before a loss in Arizona on Nov. 13. The 49ers’ biggest free-agent signings in the offseason were left guard Zane Beadles and reserve quarterback Thad Lewis. Baalke has invested heavily in defense in recent drafts, but the 49ers are on pace to allow 500 points, which...
