49ers rookie LB Donavin Newsom suffers concussion in scary collision

San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Donavin Newsom suffered a concussion during Tuesday’s practice but the team says he didn’t sustain any cervical spinal fractures.

He was taken from the practice field in an ambulance Tuesday after taking a hit to the head and neck.

The team said he was taken to Stanford Medical Center.

“After evaluation,Authentic Barry Sanders Jersey, doctors determined Newsom has no cervical spine fractures, but did suffer a concussion,Womens Ziggy Ansah Jersey,” the 49ers said. “Newsom remains at Stanford Medical Center under observation.”

Coach Kyle Shanahan said earlier in the day that Newsom had feeling in his arms and legs and his eyes were open as he was put on a stretcher and taken to a hospital. Newsom lay motionless on the field for nearly five minutes after colliding with safety Chanceller James while trying to break up a pass during a two-minute drill.

Newsom joined the 49ers in May as an undrafted free agent from Missouri.

San Francisco 49ers 2017 Season Preview

It’s hard to believe that as recently as three years ago the Oakland Raiders were a laughing stock and the San Francisco 49ers a serious Super Bowl contender behind a highly promising quarterback somehow available in the second round.

and the 49ers are a laughing stock.,Things have almost exactly reversed in the Bay Area. Now the Raiders are a serious Super Bowl contender behind a highly promising quarterback somehow available in the second round

is this the year things start looking up at Levi’s Stadium?,Womens Matthew Stafford Jersey,But with overwhelming change at the top

The San Francisco 49ers had just about as bad a 2016 season as you can imagine.

They were inept enough to lose 13 consecutive games. Chip Kelly proved that whatever inspiration he had in 2013 had long since vanished. People were talking about their quarterback, allowing 165.9 yards per game (in an era of constant pass-heavy football!) at a horrific 4.8 YPC and conceding more rushing touchdowns on the road (16) than 22 teams did in their entire season despite using two consecutive first-round picks on 3-4 defensive ends. The case against Chip in the NFL can’t be made much more simply than that., but mostly because Colin Kaepernick was a lightning rod for political debate in a polarised America during a dispiriting Presidential election campaign. Their defense were historically awful against the run

they were gifted the top pick in the draft when the Cleveland Browns contrived to beat the then-San Diego Chargers… and promptly returned it to sender when they failed to lose to a Los Angeles Rams team whose only incentive to win was reducing the draft value of the pick they handed the Titans for Jared Goff.,As if that weren’t bad enough

Personnel changes

both signed to unfathomable six-year contracts. Either they’re getting serious job security from unpopular owner Jed York,Fortunately,Authentic Derek Wolfe Jersey, Kelly and GM Trent Baalke were replaced by Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch, or he has more money than he knows what to do with. Given that they took a player-turned-analyst with zero front office experience to be GM,Authentic Justin Simmons Jersey, one suspects the latter.

Not that Lynch got off to a bad start. Even a neophyte GM can fleece the incompetent Chicago Bears these days, coaxing them into a trade they didn’t need to make for a quarterback they didn’t need to take while Lynch gleefully took the extra picks to pair with Solomon Thomas,Womens Barry Sanders Jersey, who lit up the back end of the 2016 college football season. Look for him and those previous two first-rounders – Oregon duo Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner – to combine one way or another to create havoc in a new even-front D. Further manipulation of their picks led to further defensive help with a trade up to get Reuben Foster at the back end of the first; Foster would have been long gone but for character and injury concerns,Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey, as his play at middle linebacker was pivotal to the historically great Alabama D of the last two years.

Shanahan is now also armed with two players he’s worked with before to make the passing offense slightly less bad – Brian Hoyer at QB, and signed a fullback to a contract worth $21m over four years, Pierre Garcon at WR. The team also picked up Olympic long jumper Marquise Goodwin based on the theoretical possibility that Hoyer might actually throw a deep ball once in a while, when that fullback is Kyle Juszczyk, because that’s how cap-strapped this hollowed-out team isn’t. Besides, you can expect him to be essentially a TE who happens to line up in the backfield.

On the defense, veteran additions include nose tackle Earl Mitchell and edge rusher Elvis Dumervil. The latter is probably taking “veteran” too far,Womens Derek Wolfe Jersey, as he’s 33 and in sharp decline,Womens Justin Simmons Jersey,Authentic Ziggy Ansah Jersey, but at least he’ll provide some leadership.
