Draft Scout Jimmie Ward News
09/22/14 - S Jimmie Ward was beaten by WR John Brown for Arizona's go-ahead touchdown in Sunday's loss to Arizona. It was the fourth touchdown allowed by the nickelback in the last two games.
09/18/14 - S Jimmie Ward can expect more help in his matchups with Arizona WR Larry Fitzgerald this week, 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday. Fangio noted that Ward was working at a distinct height disadvantage against Chicago standout Brandon Marshall last week, and labeled the three touchdowns Ward allowed to the Bears slot receiver a learning experience. It appears the 49ers have learned a little something as well. Fangio said it's unlikely Ward will be left in single coverage on Fitzgerald this week as often as he was with Marshall last week.
09/15/14 - FS Jimmie Ward was beaten by a much taller Bears WR Brandon Marshall on all three of his touchdown catches Sunday night. Marshall stands 6-foor-5; Ward is just 5-11. Ward was serving as the 49ers' nickel back, covering the slot receiver, on all three of those occasions.
09/14/14 - FS Jimmie Ward was beaten by Brandon Marshall on two of the Chicago receiver's three touchdown catches. Ward was serving as the 49ers' nickel back, covering the slot receiver, on both occasions.
09/11/14 - S Jimmie Ward did not suffer a concussion in the Dallas game. Rather, he was merely examined late in the win for a possible concussion by the 49ers' medical crew after getting his helmet knocked off. He was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and is expected to serve as the team's nickel back Sunday against Chicago.
