Jimmie Ward: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Ward (foot) has been placed on season-ending injured reserve, ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ward, the 30th overall pick in May's draft, mostly worked as a slot cornerback in the 49ers' nickel defense, though he's sometimes listed as a safety. He finishes his rookie season with just 20 tackles (19 solo) and two passes defensed, but he mostly held up well in a difficult role. It will be interesting to see how the 49ers use Ward next season, assuming he makes a full recovery. For the rest of this season, Tramaine Brock and Dontae Johnson are the leading candidates to take on expanded roles.

Ward suffered a quadriceps injury during Monday night's game against the Rams, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Ward was forced to exit Monday's game and did not return following his injury. At the moment, the severity of his calf ailment is unclear, although his absence resulted in Perrish Cox filling the 49ers' nickel cornerback slot Monday, leading to fellow rookie Dontae Johnson claiming Cox's original outside corner position. Johnson finished the game with four tackles (three solo) and a 20-yard interception return for a touchdown. Should Ward miss time, Johnson would figure to assume an expanded role, as Tramaine Brock (toe) continues to be sidelined.
Ward (head) played on 45-of-60 defensive snaps Sunday, recording three tackles in the loss to Chicago.

Ward (head) did not suffer a concussion against Dallas last week and will not have to go through the NFL's concussion protocol prior to Sunday's game against the Bears, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It was initially reported that Ward suffered a concussion against the Cowboys last Sunday, but a statement issued by his agent confirmed that he did not. Both starting corners Tramaine Brock (ankle) and Chris Culliver (concussion) sustained injuries last week, so Ward's role could be expanded if either is forced to miss Sunday's game against the Bears.

2014

Ward was the 49ers' first round pick in 2014, and he figures to line up in three-safety sets and also as a nickel cornerback. While he is undersized (5-10), Ward provides excellent agility and closing speed. He is still recovering from foot surgery this off-season, but he should be ready by the time training camp begins.
