The San Francisco 49ers completed their mandatory minicamp on Thursday, and that means the offseason workout program has officially come to a close. We heard from a lot of players, and we heard about a lot of performances throughout the three days of minicamp, as well as the three open days of OTAs. However, the most important piece of information to take away is that the team seemed to avoid any major, devastating injuries.
The team suffered some injuries, but at this point, knock on wood, we have not heard of any potential season-ending injuries. Instead, it is strains, and bumps and bruises. We'll have plenty more analysis of the current crop of injured players over the offseason, but for now I thought we’d take a quick look at the injury report in June. I did not include Carlos Hyde, who has been a full participant throughout the offseason workout program following 2015 foot surgery. I also did not include Antoine Bethea, who has also been a full participant following a torn pectoral muscle last season.
Workout program injuries
WR DeAndre Smelter: Pulled hamstring during final week of OTAs that cost him the mandatory minicamp. (per Eric Branch)
CB Dontae Johnson: Leg injury in final OTA last week. Limped off the field with some assistance, sat out all three minicamp practices. Beat writers repeatedly stating it does not appear serious.
OT Trent Brown: Injured either knee or lower leg on Thursday working on sled drills. Sat out team drills.
CB Chris Davis: Suffered ankle or lower leg injury on Thursday. Appeared able to walk it off and did not have a limp after practice.
OLB Ahmad Brooks: Suffered unknown injury at some point this offseason. Was primarily doing rehab work, but last couple weeks was getting in some individual drills as well.
DT DeForest Buckner: Completed practice sessions, but Cam Inman said he was dealing with some left shoulder pain over the final 20 minutes.
Pre-workout program injuries
DT Glenn Dorsey: Wearing a knee brace and going through the rehab process to recover from his November ACL tear. Cam Inman said he “might” be fully cleared at beginning of training camp.
DT Ian Williams: Wearing a walking boot and going through the rehab process to recover from his offseason ankle surgeries. He has focused entirely on his rehab, and remains a question mark to be ready for the start of the season.
S L.J. McCray: Suffered torn ACL last year in early November. He was back on the field practicing with the third team defense in OTAs. That bodes well for his return.
CB Will Redmond: All indications are that he focused on rehab during minicamp and really since he joined the team. He tore his ACL last year in late October. Both Redmond and general manager Trent Baalke think he'll be ready for training camp.
