#1 San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard m von panxing18 01.07.2019 07:44

issed practice with an injured right wrist that could keep him out of Thursday night's game against the Oakland Raiders."His wrist hurts Ben Gedeon Jersey ," coach Kyle Shanahan said. "He's struggling today to hold a ball. So, we'll see how he is tomorrow."Beathard got hurt in the second quarter of a loss on Sunday at Arizona when he hit his hand on a helmet. He stayed in the game and finished 14 for 28 for 190 yards and a touchdown, falling to 1-9 in his career as a starter, including losses in all five starts this season."I definitely felt it during the game," Beathard said. "I felt it when it happened. But, I think with adrenaline going, I don't think it was affecting the way I was throwing the ball."Shanahan said he believed Beathard would be able to play if the game this week were on Sunday but doesn't know if he'll be ready on the short week for the 49ers (1-7). Beathard remained hopeful he'll be able to go, otherwise the Niners will turn to untested Nick Mullens.Mullens joined the 49ers as an undrafted free agent last year after breaking all of Brett Favre's records in college at Southern Mississippi. He earned himself a practice squad spot.Mullens played well in the preseason this year and got promoted to the active roster following a season-ending knee injury to starter Jimmy Garoppolo in September."Nick comes in there, moves the chains, competes hard, made some plays with his legs and his arm," Shanahan said. "Guys believe in him and he's as competitive and confident as a guy I've been around. If he needs to play this week, he'll be on it."Mullens has not taken an NFL snap and has worked mostly with the scout team in practice.Mullens won't get much practice time this week either if he plays, with the Niners holding only a walkthrough on Tuesday and then a light practice Wednesday before playing the game."That's the challenge of being a backup, you don't get a lot of reps but you have to keep mentally sharp throughout the week," Mullens said. "You have to play the game in your head before it actually plays out. That's kind of what I've done each week."The only other quarterback on the roster is Tom Savage, who is still learning the offense after being signed earlier this month.The 49ers are dealing with several injuries during this short week with backup strong safety Antone Exum already ruled out for the game with a concussion.Starter Jaquiski Tartt also could miss the game with a shoulder injury and linebacker Reuben Foster also missed practice with a hamstring injury. Several other players were limited, including running back Matt Breida (ankle), CB Richard Sherman (calf Jaleel Johnson Jersey , heel), T Joe Staley (ankle), C Weston Richburg (knee), WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee), RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) and G Mike Person (ankle).San Francisco made two roster moves Tuesday by waiving receiver Victor Bolden Jr. and defensive back Greg Mabin, who started at cornerback two weeks ago against the Rams. Those moves clear roster spots if the 49ers decide to activate strong safety Marcell Harris and linebacker Dekoda Watson from injured reserve. Pick a spot, any spot"After toying with the idea of putting kicker as the #1 need for the Minnesota Vikings going into the 2019 NFL Draft, I decided that I didn’t want to deal with the impending riot and put offensive line up at the top of the list instead. Normally we could break this down into tackle and guard, but with the state of the Vikings’ offensive line I think that we can lump the whole group together. This team needs to draft someone to bolster the offensive line early on, and they probably need to draft multiple players to that end.Current Vikings offensive linemen: Riley Reiff (starter), Danny Isidora (starter. . .I guess), Pat Elflein (starter), Josh Kline (starter), Brian O’Neill (starter), Adam Bisnowaty, Aviante Collins, Dakota Dozier, Cornelius Edison Pat Elflein Jersey , Rashod Hill, Brett Jones, Storm NortonThe biggest hole on the offensive line is, currently, at left guard, and I think we all understand that. What we don’t know is how the Vikings intend to fix it. Do they draft a player to plug into the left guard spot, or do they draft someone at tackle or center and shift either Reiff or Elflein into the left guard position? Frankly, I don’t want Reiff to move. . .I don’t particularly want Elflein to move, either, but of the two I’d be more comfortable with Elflein moving over than Reiff. That just my thought process.As far as the backups? They can all fight it out. I’d like to see Jones get a bit more of an opportunity than he got in 2018, but other than that I’m not really all that attached to any of the other potential backups for this team on the offensive line.Who could the Vikings look at and when. If you’ve been following the Mock Draft Database this offseason. . .and shame on you if you haven’t been. . .you know all the big names that most of us are dreaming of hearing Roger Goodell say on Thursday night. I don’t think that Jonah Williams or Jawaan Taylor is going to make it to #18, but there are a ton of other players that the Vikings should be looking at in the first round. If they want to go the tackle route, they should be in the right spot to get their hands on Andre Dillard, by far the best pass blocking tackle in this class. If they want a center, they should be in prime territory for Garrett Bradbury, who would appear to be an ideal fit in the new scheme the Vikings want to run. If they want someone they can just mold at the guard spot, they can look to Cody Ford or Chris Lindstrom or Dalton Risner.The talent on the offensive line is going to be there when the Vikings pick at #18. They might. . .I repeat, might. . .even be able to trade back a bit and still get a Day 1 starter. It’s simply a matter of whether or not Rick Spielman wants to pull the trigger on an offensive lineman in the first round for the first time since 2012.Should the Vikings elect to pass on an offensive lineman in Round 1, they almost certainly have to address the position in Round 2. If that’s the case Dalvin Cook Jersey , you’re probably looking at players like Elgton Jenkins or Eric McCoy among interior linemen, or perhaps even “not that” Michael Jordan. They could also look to someone like Kaleb McGary at tackle, though he’s not someone that I think could immediately start at left tackle. Unless the plan is to. . .deep breath. . .play McGary at right tackle while moving Brian O’Neill to left tackle and Reiff to left guard. If the Vikings wait much longer than that to address the position, you’re pretty much into “developmental” territory at the tackle position, but there’s still some talent there to develop. Tytus Howard out of Alabama State comes to mind, as does Max Scharping of Northern Illinois.The later rounds could still produce some interior prospects with the ability to play early on. I’d be looking for someone like Nate Davis out of Charlotte in the 4th-5th round range, or someone like Oklahoma’s Dru Samia or Alex Bars from Notre Dame a little later on. Even if the Vikings do address the offensive line early, adding someone like Samia or Bars later on certainly wouldn’t hurt.But, as we’ve been screaming for months, this is undoubtedly the #1 need for the Vikings going into the draft. They need to address it early, and in a perfect world they address it often, too. Wherever or however they choose to address it, this offensive line needs talent across the board, and the Vikings now have the opportunity to add it.Get it done, Mr. Spielman.
