49ers Notebook: DeMeco Ryans’ defensive philosophy and Jimmie Ward, future podcaster?

We don’t tend to learn all that much from organized team activities. But we don’t learn nothing, if that makes sense. Wednesday provided the first chance to talk to newly-promoted defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans, the first look at quarterbacks not named Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance, and a single-day flash that seemed significant for a veteran receiver.

49ers' Jimmie Ward: Appears in 14 contests

Ward recorded 73 tackles (45 solo) and forced two fumbles across 14 games with the 49ers in 2020. The 14 games were the closest to a full season Ward has logged in a single year since 2015, and his 984 total snaps were a new career high. The versatile defensive back's newfound ability to stay on the field (17 starts over the last two years) has allowed him to finally showcase his skills, and he was rewarded with a three-year contract extension (through 2022) this past offseason. As a coverage safety in a zone-heavy defensive scheme -- which is likely to be featured again under new defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans -- Ward isn't going to post gaudy tackle totals or record many auxiliary stats (just two interceptions and three sacks in seven years as a pro), which limits his ceiling in IDP formats despite peaking in terms of real-football value.

49ers' Jimmie Ward: Clear of concussion for Week 17

Ward (concussion) does not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Seattle, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Ward sustained his concussion during a Week 15 loss to the Cowboys, and he was deemed unavailable last Sunday as San Francisco upset Arizona on the road. A trio of full practices from Ward this week indicated he was in line for his 14th start of the season against Seattle. Now, the 29-year-old's return remains imminent as San Francisco's secondary prepares for a matchup against Russell Wilson and a a strong Seattle passing attack.

49ers' Jimmie Ward: Practices without limitations

Ward (concussion) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. It's unclear if Ward has cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol. He's certainly on the right track for Sunday's game against the Seahawks after Wednesday's full practice. If the 29-year-old can, indeed, play, he'll return to a starting role at free safety. Ward will look to add to the career-high 69 tackles he's accumulated through 13 games.
