The San Francisco 49ers opened up their third week of training camp with a few changes to the lineup due to injuries. It was the team’s seventh day in pads with the same level of intensity as week two. The session was a little shorter than the open practice on Saturday, leaving out one-on-one drills.
Here are your top plays of the day:
Carlos Hyde powering through
Hyde has been very solid through training camp and continued to show his dominance in the run game even at the beginning of practice. On the third snap of the day he had a healthy run past the defensive line for a 15 yard gain. Later in practice he ran through to the secondary before being “tackled.”
Quinton Dial with a sack
Dial has been quietly working away at camp in a system that some question will suit his skill set. He proved it can work getting a sack on C.J. Beathard facing OL Darrell Williams Jr.
Aaron Lynch returned to practice with a bang
After a few days off for the birth of his second child, Lynch returned without missing a beat. He tipped a pass thrown by Matt Barkley at the line of scrimmage and then swatted down a Beathard pass towards the end of practice.
Matt Barkley to DeAndre Carter
Barkley always seems to bounce back with a great play after a not so great one. Barkley caught Carter on the run on a crossing route. Ray-Ray Armstrong was on tight coverage.
Dontae Johnson with a pick six
Johnson who is competing to be the starting corner opposite of Rashard Robinson continued making a case for himself with a pick six off a Hoyer pass that was tipped by DeForest Buckner.
Lorenzo Jerome makes some noise
The hardest hits of practice were delivered by Jerome. He caught Raheem Mostert with a hit that dislodged the ball from the running back’s hands. Unfortunately for him, ball went out of bounds so it did not cause a turnover for the defense. He also delivered another hit that stood up running back Matt Breida after only gaining a few yards.
Chanceller James with a PBU
Like Jerome, James has had a great camp, getting an opportunity to show what he can do as a result of injuries. He had a great PBU of a Barkley pass in 7-on-7s
The 49ers return to practice tomorrow at their usual time of 10:15 a.m. PT. They will also practice Wednesday before taking Thursday off as a travel day, ending the week with the game in Kansas City on Friday night.
