  • 49ers’ secondary could be shorthanded vs. Chiefs

    The 49ers' secondary may not be at full strength against one of the strongest passing attacks it will face this season. On Saturday, the 49ers promoted safety Tyvis Powell from the practice squad, which could be a sign starting strong safety Jaquiski Tartt won't be available when they visit the Chiefs on Sunday. The 49ers released linebacker Terence Garvin to make room for Powell on the roster. Tartt (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday after missing the previous two sessions and is...

  • Who’s fastest? 49ers’ Goodwin cleverly answers when asked about Hill

    In the discussion about the NFL's fastest player, two wide receivers, the 49ers' Marquise Goodwin and Chiefs' Tyreek Hill, are certainly in the conversation. On Wednesday, however, Goodwin declined to enter the discussion when asked if he was faster than Hill. Well, sort of. In response, Goodwin pulled up the sleeve on his left arm and pointed to his tattoo of Olympic rings. It was a reference to the fact he'd competed in the long jump in the 2012 Olympics and, perhaps, it was a suggestion that...

  • Will the just-right Jimmy Garoppolo show up for 49ers in Week 3?

    In Week 1, he was too reckless. In Week 2, he was too cautious. The question for Week 3: When will Jimmy Garoppolo be as glorious as he was last year? Perceptions change rapidly in the NFL. And that fact is neatly illustrated this week with the 49ers and Garoppolo visiting the Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes. Less than two week ago, when Garoppolo had a 7-0 record, there were jokes about him never losing a start in his career. But that crack about unsustainable perfection is so five minutes ago:...

  • 49ers have a CB question with Mahomes next up

    As quarterback Matthew Stafford was furiously trying to rally the Lions from a 17-point, fourth-quarter deficit Sunday, the 49ers made a defensive change in hopes of stopping his momentum. They inserted cornerback Jimmie Ward for starter Ahkello Witherspoon, who played just 12 of the final 15 defensive snaps. "That was crunch time," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday after a 30-27 win over Detroit. "Going against a real good offense there. Stafford's got a great chance to get back in the game...

  • Report: Patriots, not 49ers, to make trade for Josh Gordon

    After making a call about Josh Gordon, the 49ers won’t be making a trade for the Browns wide receiver. Instead it appears the Patriots will swing a deal for Gordon, 27, according to the NFL Network, which reported the transaction has yet to be finalized. On Sunday, general manager John Lynch said the 49ers had contacted the Browns and were doing their homework on Gordon, who has played in just 11 of 65 games since 2013 largely due to NFL suspensions for drug violations. In 2014, his lone season...

  • 49ers TE Kittle on Lions defenders: ‘I think they had a crush on me’

    The penalty flag Lions safety Quandre Diggs drew for holding 49ers tight end George Kittle in the fourth quarter Sunday received all the attention, but Kittle said it was hardly an isolated incident. Kittle colorfully explained Detroit's defenders were handsy with him all afternoon. "They liked me," he said. "I think they had a crush on me." Indeed, Kittle's modest stat line - two catches for 22 yards - didn't reflect the impact he made by drawing penalties. With just over two minutes left, of...
