The Redskins’ young defensive backs are stepping up in relief of injured starters

The Redskins’ defense has been a pleasant surprise, and despite being hit by numerous injuries, the secondary has held up well and is playing better than it has in recent years. Washington was without star cornerback Josh Norman and starting strong safety Deshazor Everett in Sunday’s win over the 49ers; Bashaud Breeland also missed some time after being […]

Raiders, NaVorro Bowman agree to one-year deal

Give this to Raiders officials: They pounced on NaVorro Bowman before he could ever get out of the Bay Area. Oakland signed Bowman, the former 49ers linebacker, to a one-year contract Monday, according to multiple reports. Bowman agreed to a $3 million salary, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. Bowman, 29, fortifies a Raiders weakness at linebacker; they largely are unproven beyond veteran Bruce Irvin. Even if Bowman’s Achilles and knee injuries in recent years robbed him of speed, he still offers a strong presence against the run. Bowman...

McElhenny recalls Tittle, fellow member of 49ers’ ‘Million Dollar Backfield’

The last surviving member of the 49ers’ “Million Dollar Backfield” uses a cane, sleeps with a mask because of his emphysema and stopped playing golf about a decade ago after he fell and broke his hip. His knee surgery seven years ago, and his difficultly in rehab, explains why his left leg is far thinner than his right. And, before his most recent health issues, there was a battle with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a nerve condition that temporarily paralyzed his once-powerful legs and forced him to use a walker for a year. Hugh McElhenny says he can no...

Report: The 49ers are shopping Carlos Hyde

Surprise, surprise: The 49ers are trying to trade running back Carlos Hyde, according to Benjamin Allbright. In addition to releasing Navarro Bowman, Niners have received and made calls about RB Carlos Hyde. — Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) October 14, 2017 Trading Hyde is the right move, as I have written since June. He’s a poor fit in the 49ers’ outside-zone run game, he’s injury prone and he probably won’t be on...

Raiders could take a look at NaVorro Bowman

Shortly after the 49ers released linebacker NaVorro Bowman on Friday, Raiders punter Marquette King posted a simple tweet: two eyeballs and @NBowman53, his Twitter handle. So will King’s team cast its gaze toward Bowman? It makes sense, especially given Oakland’s shortcomings at linebacker. That wasn’t a strong position even before an ankle injury knocked rookie Marquel Lee out of Sunday’s game against the Chargers, and a knee injury left Cory James as questionable. Lee and James are both listed as starters on the depth chart,...

His time in SF soon could come to an end. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 13, 2017 This is the right move. Ray Ray Armstrong is better than NaVorro Bowman, and Reuben Foster is coming back from his ankle injury. Armstrong...

49ers’ Foster could return Sunday in limited role

Before rookie inside linebacker Reuben Foster met with reporters Thursday a member of the 49ers’ public relations staff pulled him aside, presumably to instruct him on how to handle questions about his ankle injury. Then, Foster addressed the crowd and used his colorful way with words when asked if he could return to action Sunday against Washington. “I hope the doctors officially clear me, but I don’t know,” Foster said. “Hopefully they see, you know, a child in me, like, ‘Want a candy?’ I want some candy. Let me have some candy.” ...

The 49ers have signed cornerback Leon Hall to fill the roster spot of corner Asa Jackson, who sustained a hamstring injury in Sunday’s overtime loss to the Colts and was placed on injured reserve. Hall, 32, is a 2007 first-round pick who has made 107 starts and grabbed 27 interceptions in his career.

49ers WR Goodwin’s latest concussion is fourth in less than 14 months

The concussion 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin sustained in an overtime loss to the Cardinals on Sunday was his fourth diagnosed concussion in less than 14 months and his fifth since 2014. Last year, Goodwin, 26, sustained three concussions in a two-month span in his final season with the Bills, the first during a training-camp practice on Aug. 23, 2016.

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tartt was hurting and termed him questionable to play, although Tartt didn’t miss a snap in a 12-9 loss at Seattle on Sunday.
