49ers-Jets injury report: Todd Bowles’ team loaded with walking wounded

49ers-Jets injury report: Todd Bowles’ team loaded with walking wounded

We break down the Jets injury report with help from a Jets blogger. The New York Jets submitted their final injury report, and they are indeed quite the walking wounded. I spoke with Gang Green Nation writer David Wyatt to get his thoughts on the team’s injury report heading into Week 14. Here’s what David had to say, followed by the formal injury report. The Jets have a host of walking wounded this week. We already knew that Nick Mangold was being shut down for the year, but on Friday we learned that six players had already been ruled out. This includes OT Breno Giacomini who's been...

The San Francisco 49ers host the New York Jets on Sunday, and they face a run defense that has actually been pretty good. Football Outsiders ranks...

2017 NFL mock draft: We have 2 rounds of fury

The 49ers get a linebacker and a quarterback. Would these picks fit? The NFL kicked off Week 14 of the 2017 NFL season on Thursday night, and we are now eight days away from the first bowl game of the 2016-17 college postseason. That means mock drafts are picking up steam as the top of the draft order...

Jets explain why Colin Kaepernick isn’t the same QB

Some weekends, Colin Kaepernick looks like the dynamic dual-threat quarterback who nearly led the 49ers to a Super Bowl title four years ago. Last month, he threw for 398 yards against the Saints. Two weeks ago, he had 296 passing yards and three touchdowns, adding 113 rushing yards against the Dolphins. Then there are games...

The Curious Case Of Colin Kaepernick

The 3-8 New York Jets head to the 1-11 San Francisco 49'ers this week for what promised to be a game filled with quality and intrigue. OK, so maybe it'll be very low on quality and the only intrigue attached to this game revolves around the performance of Bryce Petty and which team will hurt its draft...
49ers RB Hyde eyes 1,000; Staley listed as doubtful

49ers RB Hyde eyes 1,000; Staley listed as doubtful

In training camp, running back Carlos Hyde outlined his individual goals for the 2016 season: stay healthy and rush for 1,500 yards. Hyde, who missed two games earlier this season with a shoulder injury, now hopes to play in the final four games and reach 1,000 yards for the first time in his injury plagued career. Hyde sent a congratulatory text this week to his predecessor Frank Gore, who passed Tony Dorsett and moved into eighth place on the NFL’s career rushing list Monday. Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Staley (hamstring) missed his second straight practice today and has been listed as...

Chip Kelly: Joe Staley day-to-day with hamstring injury

The 49ers might be shorthanded on the offensive line in Week 14, but we probably will not find out for certain until Sunday’s inactives announcement. The San Francisco 49ers had a full practice on Thursday, and offensive tackle Joe Staley did not participate due to a hamstring injury he suffered...

Live game updates: 49ers take on the Bears

The 49ers head to Soldier Field to take on the Bears on Sunday morning. Follow along here for live game updates, analysis and more.

WR Patton active; Lynch out; Jones stays in uniform

CHICAGO - Niners wide receiver Quinton Patton is inactive for today’s game against the Bears after he sustained a concussion in last week’s loss at Miami. Defensive tackle Quinton Dial (knee, neck) will play today after missing his only start of the season last week.

49ers @ Bears live blog

This is the live blog for the 49ers’ Week-13 road game against the Chicago Bears. I will update this frequently with information and analysis from my new apartment. 8:30 As I wrote in the previous blog, Colin Kaepernick will exercise the player option in his restructured contract to become a free agent after this season. I […]

Report: Colin Kaepernick will become a free agent after 2016

Colin Kaepernick restructured his contract earlier this season to give himself an out after 2016. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Kaepernick will exercise that out, or “player option,” and become a free agent. #49ers QB Colin Kaepernick will void his contract & become a free agent after 2016, sources say. But don’t rule out a […]

The 49ers’ biggest 2017 draft needs, ranked

The 49ers are careening down the stretch and instead of playoff position, this team is angling for draft position. With that in mind, we thought we would get an early jump on team needs. Here we go.

49ers motivated to end season on high note

CHICAGO — If the 49ers’ season was a family vacation, the luggage would be lost, the rental car would be wrecked and, borrowing from Clark Griswold’s unfortunate experience, the amusement park would be closed. Barring an avalanche of extravagant holiday bonuses, it’s doubtful the 49ers will look back on 2016 fondly. Perhaps their best chance to avoid that indignity will arrive Sunday when they visit the lowly Bears (2-9) in the NFL’s Draft Order Bowl. Some fans might hope their team tanks in such a situation, but Bears head coach John Fox dismissed the suggestion that his team...

In game 49ers should win, three questions they need to answer

I have just three questions this week for the 49ers, but they’re big questions. The only three that really matter. Question No. 1. Can San Francisco beat a less-talented team? I’d be absolutely shocked if the 49ers lose to the Bears Sunday in Chicago. Or anywhere, ever. Because as bad as the 1-10 Niners are, […]

For 49ers’ Christian Ponder, it’s mind over matter

ORLANDO — Seven years ago, when quarterback Christian Ponder was attending college 250 miles away in Tallahassee, he had a game in which everything came easy. Ponder, then a junior, completed 33 of 40 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns to rally Florida State to a 30-27 victory over North Carolina. On Tuesday, after the 49ers practiced at the University of Central Florida, Ponder acknowledged that he’s been light-years removed from the zone for the majority of his NFL career. Draft history is littered with busts at the NFL’s most vital, pressure-filled and hard-to-evaluate...

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. […]
