49ers’ Richard Sherman misses practices with heel injury

49ers’ Richard Sherman misses practices with heel injury

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who has had surgeries on both Achilles tendons in the past 10 months, missed practice Thursday with a heel injury after he wasn’t listed on the injury report the previous day. Sherman, 30, tore his right Achilles in November. In the offseason, he had another procedure to remove bone spurs from his left Achilles. Sherman, who played in one preseason game due to a hamstring injury, has played all 148 defensive snaps in the season’s first two games and has allowed just one reception. Before practice, Sherman met with the media and did not mention his heel injury,...

Why not trade for Josh Gordon? 49ers’ John Lynch explains

Why not trade for Josh Gordon? 49ers’ John Lynch explains

General manager John Lynch indicated Josh Gordon’s extensive off-the-field issues were the reason the 49ers didn’t pursue a trade for the wide receiver more aggressively. On Monday, the Browns traded Gordon, 27, and 2019 seventh-round pick to the Patriots for a 2019 fifth-round pick. On Sunday, Lynch had said the 49ers called the Browns about Gordon and were doing their homework on him. Of course, much of the background work involved speaking with head coach Kyle Shanahan, who was the Browns offensive coordinator in 2014. Cleveland’s staff that season also included 49ers special team...

Jets-Browns game thread to kick off Week 3

Jets-Browns game thread to kick off Week 3

It’s time for some Week 3 football! The Cleveland Browns host the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football to get the third week of the season underway. The game kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT on NFL Network, with Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth, and Erin Andres and Kristina Pink on the sideline. The Browns are a field goal favorite, marking their first time as a home favorite since they beat the 49ers back in 2015. Led by Johnny Manziel, they won and covered in that game. Tonight’s game seems like a do-or-die time for the 0-1-1 Browns. They seem close to making something happen, but...

SANTA CLARA — Reuben Foster finished his two-game suspension like “a true fan” watching on his home television, and that meant cringing, hollering and cheering the 1-1 start.

49ers looking at three options if Jaquiski Tartt is unable to play in Week 3

The 49ers have two practices remaining to see how Tartt and others get going. The San Francisco 49ers secondary has some question marks, and while we don’t have final answers, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh offered up some insight into the team’s approach. Strong safety Jaquiski Tartt has been dealing with a shoulder injury that limited him in practice last week. He aggravated the injury in the fourth quarter against the Lions, and is now missing practice in advance of the Chiefs game. He sat out Wednesday practice, and his status is uncertain for Sunday. Defensive coordinator...

49ers fan confidence impacted more by ugly win than optimistic loss

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. 49ers fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse. It is no surprise 49ers fans are mostly confident.

The game that almost got away

Let’s take a look at some of the key plays from the 49ers home opener A few choice quotes came out of the San Francisco 49ers 30-27 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 2. Those from Richard Sherman resonated with me more than the others. “A win’s a win, but it feels like a loss to me,” Sherman said. He went on to add, “I think it’s a good lesson for a young team that we needed. It’s a humbling lesson. Thank goodness we got the win out of it, but there’s a lot of good tape, a lot of good learning from this.” Thank goodness we got the win. There’s several reasons why. The...

Golden Nuggets: Witherspoon and Goodwin Limited, Tartt Did Not Practice

A daily compilation of 49ers news from around the net. Thursday, September 20th, 2018 edition. Good morning folks, and a happy Thursday to you. Although the NFL has been pushing “Thursday games are good!” in their commercials this year, they’ve scheduled what should be marketed as the Toilet Bowl, in a game between the New York Jets and the Cleveland Browns. Last year, these two teams were among the worst in the league, as the Jets finished with the 6th overall pick, and the Browns cemented their place in history with a 0-win season. Luckily for both, they seem to be improved, but...

D.J. Reed, Mike McGlinchey were tops among 49ers rookies in Week 2

It’s a process, but things are moving in a positive direction. The San Francisco 49ers are getting ready for Week 3 vs. the Kansas City Chiefs, but before that arrives, I wanted to take a look back at what the team’s rookies did in Week 2. The 49ers are a young team looking to build out from their 2017 and 2018 draft classes. Today, we’re back to take a look at the 2018 rookie class. Rookie of the day: DB/KR D.J. Reed Other rookies played more significant roles, but Reed gets credit for his 90-yard kickoff return. He had a touchdown, but his facemask penalty at the 11-yard line...
