1 post in this topic

suffered a wrist injury in the second quarter of the 49ers Week 8 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He finished out the game , but is currently struggling to hold a football, so he is sitting out the team’s Tuesday walkthrough. Kyle Shanahan said Beathard is likely a game day decision.Beathard met with the media after Shanahan and said he is hopeful he can play on Thursday. He said he “kinda messed up” his thumb and wrist, but neither is broken.If Beathard cannot play on Thursday, backup Nick Mullens would get the start and Tom Savage would serve as his backup. Mullens has been active but not played each of the past five weeks since Jimmy Garoppolo went down with his torn ACL. He spent all last season on the practice squad , which gives him a little over a year and a half learning Kyle Shanahan’s system.Shanahan said that if Savage ever had to enter the game in place of Mullens, the playbook would be pared down significantly. The 49ers first signed Savage on October 16th. He was released that same week, but then brought back when Adrian Colbert went on injured reserve. So basically, he has two weeks of playbook study under his belt.All that being said Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey , I expect Beathard to play on Thursday. We’ll find out for sure with the wrist injury, but it would be slightly surprising to me if he did not play. That’s not to say I don’t want to see Mullens out there. Given the state of the season, the masochist in me wants to see it. The 49ers placed defensive back Jimmie Ward on injured reserve.For the second consecutive season, a broken forearm has ended his season. Ward’s rookie contract expires at the end of the season 49ers Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , making him a free agent in March.The 49ers claimed defensive back Godwin Igwebuike off waivers from the Buccaneers.The Bucs waived Igwebuike after he spent two weeks on the 53-player roster. He played 12 snaps on special teams two weeks ago against the Giants before Tampa Bay listed him among its inactives Sunday. Igwebuike, an undrafted free agent from Northwestern, spent the first 10 weeks on Tampa Bay鈥檚 practice squad.The 49ers also promoted linebacker James Onwualu to the active roster from the practice squad. They did not need another corresponding move after cutting linebacker Reuben Foster on Monday.Onwualu originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2017, signing with the Chargers. He appeared in nine games and made nine special teams tackles last season with the Chargers.Los Angeles waived him Aug. 26 49ers Mike Person Jersey , and he joined the 49ers’ practice squad on Nov. 19.
