Hamstring injury could send San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward to IR to open season.

San Francisco 49ers are supposed to live longer without free assurance than before Jimmy Ward.

Ward suffered a severe hamstring injury on 14 August by coach Kyle Shanahan, and although the Niners admitted he would miss some time, it could cost Ward the first month of the season.

Niners general manager John Lynch said on Thursday at the pregame show of the pre-season finale against the Houston Texans that Ward is likely to land on injured reserve to start the season that will cost him the first four games.

This allows us to do what Lynch said on Amazon’s broadcast. He’s a defense that plays like a defense but also covers like a corner. He is often our best cover man so it is a big loss.

The Niners checked veteran prosperity Tashaun Gipson on Monday to grow the significance and challenge with Ward Out. Deontay Johnson, who is entering his ninth NFL season, has gone from corner to corner in camp and is taking a long look at free safety after returning from a recent rib injury.

Tarvarius Moore and George Odom have also been receiving photos of Ward’s location since the injury.

According to league rules, if the 49ers want Ward to land with the option of returning to injured reserve, they cannot make that move until the initial 53-man roster is cut.

That means the Niners will have to take wards on the 53-man roster by 4 p.m. ET may place him in injured reserve on Wednesday. If he had done this earlier he would have missed out on the whole season.
