9ers having their usual hard luck with injuries and we haven't even started yet. Dang I hope they are just getting them over with early this year.

Coming at you
9ers having their usual hard luck with injuries and we haven't even started yet. Dang I hope they are just getting them over with early this year.
Ward can't stay healthy, just a fact of life. Can't for the life figure out why they resigned him. Even when healthy, he's an average safety at best. They need to sign Tre Boston ASAP.

Not worried about Bosa. Just a strain and they are being cautious at this point in the season.

time for a Memorial day update:
1) Rookie Lb Ryan Connelly of the Giants is impressing and may get a shot to start at one of the ILB positions in Giants 3-4 defense
2) Fantasy concern may not be warranted in S.F. - With McKinnon still recovering from last year's knee, Brieda with pectoral tear and Mostert still having ankle issues - Coleman could make a push to take many carries early and be a lead back
3) Greatest line ever - Vic Fangio HC of Denver on Noah Fant - "He’s got tools, but you know I can go into Home Depot and walk out with a bunch of nice tools and I’m not a carpenter." Love this quote!

Uh oh - Nick Foles Qb Jac - will miss OTA's for a while - stated it is for personal reasons, no time table for his return - and HC stated prayers and thoughts to him and his family - that sounds like a potential health issue with a family member? Just speculation on my part

And a very basic way of explaining it, his wife contracted the pneumonia virus in her blood and it spread to their unborn child. The child lost its life in a miscarriage over the weekend.

So basically the Jaguars are giving him as much time as he needs to be at home with his wife
