49ers rookie safety Brown to miss Week 17 vs. Commanders

 

The 49ers will likely turn to veteran safety Logan Ryan, who the team signed Dec. 5 after starter Talanoa Hufanga was lost for the season with a torn ACL. Ryan is in his 11th NFL season and will make his 122nd career start and first with the 49ers. He previously started games for New England, Tennessee, New York Giants and Tampa Bay.

Five 49ers to watch in pivotal Week 17 matchup vs. Commanders

“Starter Javon Hargrave is struggling with a hamstring injury, so the 49ers were fortunate to add another key player on the defensive line. Joseph-Day had three sacks, 11 quarterback hits and 31 tackles in 14 games with the Chargers. He can expect to break into the rotation right away and could end up being one of their most-used defensive linemen in the postseason.

49ers’ Charvarius Ward adding big plays to cornerback repertoire

“When Wilks, who has expertise in the secondary, arrived this offseason, he found Ward, who has the nickname “Mooney,” already a starter. But Wilks believed there was more to open.” “When he first came here, he always told me, ‘Moon, you’re a bad MF guy,”’ Ward said.

“Just that confidence in me and believing in me. I just want to pay him back for believing in me.” Ward’s touchdown was a great example of how Wilks helped out. In Saturday’s pregame, the Niners made the exact play that led to the sixth pick.

That would put Ward in a Cover 3 zone, but his accountability rules required him to pass Arizona tight end Trey McBride as he ran farther across the field. When McBride set up the zone, Ward knew exactly what play it was, jumped in front of the pass and raced to 20.6 mph for the score.

49ers mailbag: What’s behind the missed tackles? What’s Brock Purdy saying pre-snap?

– He’s had two shutouts in his career so far, while the 49ers have the opposite. This suggests that the learning curve is difficult. Still, Bosa noted that Joseph-Day’s strength — his speed — makes him a good fit for the 49ers’ aggressive style of play. Day ran his 40-yard dash in 4.97 seconds in 2018 and had a 1.68-second 10-yard dash, both impressive for a 300-pound inside linebacker.

 

Wilks voices confidence in veteran 49ers DBs Verrett, Ryan

 

“Logan did a great job,” Wilks told reporters. “I was excited when we got him. I knew at one point he was going to do a great job helping us. His leadership and I talked to Fred [Warner] yesterday about him leaving the field and I said, ‘Did you know. and see Logan?'” He says, “Yeah, man, he’s talking.

And that’s great. A sign of safety. His communication skills, especially when you have a new guy, and he steps up and does those things.” So I like his presence. He has skin on the wall, as I call it. He’s been around the league for a while, played in a few Super Bowls, so he understands how much we are at this time of year.

Foerster reveals 49ers’ surprising emergency O-line plan

“Watch out. Charlie [Woerner] should come in,” offensive line coach Chris Foerster told reporters Thursday. “We should do it in a hurry.” Had Woerner entered, it wouldn’t have been the first time Foerster and Williams had seen their team’s crisis offensive line strain.

 

“And it’s kind of funny, I told Trent [Williams] this morning, because they only recently went to eight offensive linemen,” Foerster explained. – When I got to the NFL, we always had eight, but then special teams and everything else took over. So we went to seven – everything suddenly became seven. “So, you had seven, and very rarely — probably three times in 25, 30 years — did you have to go to a different position on the offensive line. I think that might have been our last game in 2014, my last. game with Trent.

In Washington, I think [tight end] Logan Paulson played a series or two for us at left tackle because we missed, we lost Trent, we lost. Tom Compton, we lost another guy. And so we had to put in Logan the last series or two. “So, yeah, there’s eight linemen and you lose three guys and you lose a quarter and you lose another guy, you’ve got to go and work hard. So it’s tough, but everyone’s back to work. And I don’t know what everyone’s injury status is this week, but I think we have enough guys coming back.”
