Observations from the 49ers First Padded Practice of Training Camp

Tuesday marked the 49ers first padded practice of training camp which, as expected, came with its share of high intensity plays. There were a number of moments that favored both the offense and defense, which quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo noted during his media availability on Tuesday.

Here are several observations from the session, as well as some updates from 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan.

  • The play of the day was a deep bomb from Trey Lance to Trent Sherfield during full-team work. Lance broke out of the pocket and hit Sherfield in stride for a 50-yard touchdown.
  • Defensive linemen Javon Kinlaw and Jordan Willis both notched run stops behind the line of scrimmage during the 49ers first series of 11-on-11 work.
  • Dee Ford made his second appearance in full-team drills on Tuesday and notched at least one sack and also chased Lance out of the pocket in another play during his limited reps.
  • Shanahan gave updates on the status of linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair, who left yesterday's practice with an apparent knee injury.
