  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Plays well with new club

    Ward finished the 2022 regular season with 87 tackles (59 solo) and an interception across 17 games.

    Ward had a successful first season with his new club after leaving Kansas City last offseason to serve as San Francisco's top corner. The 26-year-old finished with a career-high 87 combined tackles, but he did suffer lapses in coverage at times. Ward will enter the second year of his three-year contract with the 49ers in 2023, likely serving as the team's top corner once again.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Active Saturday

    Ward (concussion) has been cleared to play in Saturday's game against the Commanders, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Ward is returning from concussion protocol after getting hurt Week 15. He should take on his full workload assuming any setbacks are avoided. If that does happen, the likes of Deommodore Lenoir, Samuel Womack and Ambry Thomas would be candidates to fill in at cornerback.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Could play in Week 16

    Ward (concussion) is considered questionable to play Saturday against the Commanders, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Ward sustained a concussion during San Francisco's Week 15 win over Seattle on Thursday Night Football, and he was limited in each practice during Week 16 prep. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan also said Thursday that the cornerback is in the "last steps" of the concussion protocol, so official word on his availability will likely come when the team announces its inactives/actives 90 minutes prior to Saturday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff. If Ward is sidelined, then San Francisco could be left with three available cornerbacks between Deommodore Lenoir, Samuel Womack and Ambry Thomas (ankle), the latter of whom is also considered questionable to play.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Lands in concussion protocol

    Ward suffered a concussion during Thursday's 21-13 win over Seahawks, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Ward was formally cleared to return to Thursday's contest after being evaluated for a head injury, but he remained on the sideline with his helmet off and has since been diagnosed with a concussion. The starting cornerback will have extra time to clear protocols before the 49ers return to action on Christmas Eve against the Commanders, but if he's forced to miss any time, Janoris Jenkins and Ambry Thomas (ankle) could emerge as starting candidates opposite Deommodore Lenoir.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Suffers head injury

    Ward exited Thursday's 21-13 win over the Seahawks due to a head injury, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Ward exited the game while being evaluated for a concussion. He was formally cleared to return but remained on the sideline with his helmet in his hand. While it's positive he avoided a concussion diagnosis, Ward's practice status will be worth monitoring heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Commanders.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Leading tackler on MNF

    Ward recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) during Monday's 38-10 victory versus the Cardinals.

    Ward logged 10 stops for the second time this season during this wire-to-wire win for San Francisco. The 26-year-old did see a slight dip in his usual playing time (85 percent of defensive snaps) after he was temporarily forced out with a groin injury in the first half. Ward has served as the most consistent member of the 49ers' secondary through his first 10 games with the team, recording 56 tackles (40 solo), nine passes defended and one interception, and he should continue to play a prominent role against the Saints' limited passing offense Week 12.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Back in action

    Ward (groin) has returned to Monday's game against the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Ward exited the game early in the first quarter, but he's feeling well enough to get back on the field. His return is good news for the 49ers secondary.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Returns Monday night

    Ward (groin) returned during the first half of Monday's game against the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Ward was able to come back in after exiting with a groin injury in the first quarter. The 26-year-old recorded 46 tackles, nine passes defended and an interception over the first nine games of the season, and he should step back in opposite starting cornerback Deommodore Lenoir for the remainder of this contest.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Leaves with injury

    Ward has exited Monday's game against the Cardinals with a groin injury.

    Ward suffered the injury in the first quarter and is questionable to return. If he is unable to get back in the game, it'll certainly be a blow to the 49er secondary. Ambry Thomas and Samuel Womack will be candidates for an uptick in snaps while Ward is out.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Leads team in stops Sunday

    Ward recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 44-23 loss to the Chiefs.

    Ward not only lead his team with 10 stops Sunday against Kansas City, but he also tied his previous career-high that he set in Week 15 versus the Chargers a year ago. The 26-year-old cornerback played all but one defensive snap in Week 7 against the Chiefs, and he'll look to build off this strong performance when the team is hosted by the Rams on Sunday.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Will play Sunday

    Ward (groin) is active Sunday against the Chiefs.

    Ward was unable to practice Wednesday or Thursday after suffering the injury in Week 6 against Atlanta. His ability to suit up Sunday against the Chiefs will be a boon to the 49ers secondary, as they take on Kansas City's dangerous passing attack.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Questionable for Sunday

    Ward (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Ward injured his groin last Sunday against Atlanta and began this week by missing practice Wednesday and Thursday before logging a limited session Friday. That gives him a chance to play Sunday, which would be a big boost to a San Francisco secondary that will be faced with the daunting task of slowing down Patrick Mahomes and the rest of Kansas City's potent passing attack. Ward played his first four NFL campaigns with the Chiefs before joining the 49ers prior to this season.

  • 49ers' Charvarius Ward: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Ward (groin) was a non-participant during the 49ers' practice Wednesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    Ward sustained a groin injury during Sunday's loss to the Falcons that sidelined him for the remainder of this contest. Now, unless he can increase his activity during practice Thursday or Friday, it appears this issue may keep him sidelined Week 7. Ward played almost every defensive snap for San Francisco over the first five games of the season, and, with fellow starter Emmanuel Moseley (knee) out for the season, the 49ers will need as many healthy cornerbacks as possible for Sunday's game against the Chiefs' potent passing offense.
