The 49ers needed some good news on injuries after three members of their junior high school went down within two weeks of each other. However, one of those players returned to training on Wednesday when the 49ers opened their joint sessions against the Vikings in Minnesota.
Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, defensive lineman Arik Armstead and wide receiver Danny Gray all got back into action for the 49ers on Wednesday after each missing some time.
Moseley suffered a minor hamstring injury that was not expected to keep him out for long. He only participated in individual exercises as he worked his way back into action.
Armstead is returning from an MCL sprain he contracted early in camp. Head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated on Saturday that Armstead could have trained before Wednesday, but the team wanted to postpone him until the joint training sessions in Minnesota. He also only participated in individual exercises.
Gray only missed time with some back and hip pain after the team’s preseason opener. He made a big splash Wednesday with a long touchdown in seven-on-seven drills.
Not everything is perfect on the health front for San Francisco yet. Cornerback Charvarius Ward and running back Elijah Mitchell are still out with hamstring injuries, as is free safety Jimmie Ward. However, they are moving in the right direction with less than a month until the regular season opener.
