The 49ers lost CB Emmanuel Moseley in the 2nd half of Sunday's win over the Panthers to a left knee injury that they fear is an ACL tear, according to Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area. We'll watch for confirmation today. San Francisco also watched S Jimmie Ward break his left hand in his 1st game back of the year (thanks to a hamstring injury). It's not clear yet whether he'll miss further time.

The 49ers plan to place S Jimmie Ward on short-term IR, and he's expected to miss at least 4 games. GM John Lynch announced the plan Thursday night, for a hamstring injury that HC Kyle Shanahan had previously deemed "significant."

Niners S Jimmie Ward is dealing with a hamstring injury. According to ESPN's Nick Wagoner, HC Kyle Shanahan called it "worse than others" and said Ward is in danger of missing Week 1. It's not a big storyline for IDP purposes, but Ward has a place in deep leagues. His absence would be a slight knock on the team defense as well.

Niners S Jimmie Ward (quad) is active for tonight's game against the Rams. He returns after missing Week 9 with the injury.

Niners S Jimmie Ward (quad) is active for today's game against the Seahawks. He'll take his position back from Tarvarius Moore and carries upside against pass-heavy Seattle.

The 49ers have deemed S Jaquiski Tartt (groin) and LB Kwon Alexander (ankle) doubtful for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. That should keep S Marcell Harris and LB Dre Greenlaw in full-time roles and in play for IDP lineups. S Jimmie Ward (quad) is questionable after missing last week's game. If Ward can't go, then Tarvarius Moore would get another start. We'll check his status Sunday.

Niners S Jaquiski Tartt (groin) and S Jimmie Ward (quad) remained out of practice Wednesday after missing Sunday's win over the Patriots. Tarvarius Moore and Marcell Harris started in their places against New England and tied for the team lead with 5 solo tackles. Each would be in play for IDP use against a pass-heavy Seattle team this week if Tartt and Ward sit again. Moore is the Ward replacement and Harris for Tartt, though their in-game roles have been fairly interchangeable. Elsewhere on the defense, LB Kwon Alexander (high-ankle sprain) remained out of practice Wednesday. His absence would keep Dre Greenlaw in a full-time role.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the 49ers have agreed to a 3-year, $28.5 million deal with S Jimmie Ward. The 28-year-old -- until mid-July -- is coming off the healthiest and strongest season among his 1st 6 in the league. In addition to staying on the field, Ward also settled in to a higher percentage of safety snaps than he played in 2018. Ward combines that role with some valuable slot-corner exposure to present IDP upside beyond last year's mediocre production.

Niners DE Dee Ford is active for tonight's game against the Browns. He made it onto the field for just 1 limited practice this week while dealing with a quad injury and has been hampered by multiple issues all season. S Jimmie Ward is also active for the 1st time this season. We'll see whether he takes the FS job back from Tarvarius Moore.

Niners DE Nick Bosa, DE Dee Ford and S Jaquiski Tartt are active for today's game against the Steelers. All entered the day questionable and are low-level IDP options at best. Ford, in particular, has been struggling through his return from a preseason knee sprain and should not be in fantasy football lineups. DB Jimmie Ward, meanwhile, is inactive once again. That keeps Tarvarius Moore in play for deep IDP leagues.

49ers safeties Jaquiski Tartt (neck) and Jimmie Ward (hamstring) are both active for tonight's game against the Rams. Both were reportedly expected to start but entered the day officially questionable. If you're looking to use 1 in your IDP lineup, opt for Tartt. The injury situations obviously add risk to both, though.

The 49ers expect to start Jaquiski Tartt (neck) and Jimmie Ward (hamstring) at safety Thursday night against the Rams, according to Pro Football Talk. Both players were limited on the Tuesday and Wednesday injury reports and carry questionable tags into the contest. Tartt would play strong in place of Eric Reid, who's reportedly expected to miss a few games with his sprained PCL. Ward would man the free spot. We'll confirm their game statuses Thursday evening.

49ers S Jimmie Ward (hamstring) is active and will make his season debut today against the Seahawks. He sat out the opener with the injury. Ward will carry upside at full strength, but it's too soon to trust him in IDP lineups -- especially in a negative matchup for DB scoring. His return casts doubt on Jaquiski Tartt's usability in IDP lineups as well.

Niners DB Jimmie Ward is out for today's game against the Panthers, as expected. He entered the weekend doubtful with a hamstring injury. Ward will make for a risky IDP option until he gets through a game healthy.

Niners S Jimmie Ward suffered a hamstring injury Thursday in the team's conditioning test and has been placed on the PUP, according to CSN Bay Area. HC Kyle Shanahan said they don't believe the injury is serious but that they want to "be smart" about when to return him to the field. The team is reportedly viewing Ward's injury as a "week to week" situation. Jaquiski Tartt will fill in while Ward is out.

11:55pm EST 12/18/16

Niners CB Jimmie Ward left Sunday's game early with a shoulder injury and did not return. We'll check on his status for Week 16 heading into a Saturday afternoon meeting with the Rams.

49ers CB Jimmie Ward (concussion) is active for today's game against the Dolphins and ready to use as you normally would. OLB Aaron Lynch (ankle) is inactive after entering the day questionable.

CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports that 49ers CB Jimmie Ward is "week to week" with a quad strain. Maiocco reports that Ward will likely be re-evaluated after San Francisco's Thursday night game in Week 5. You can go ahead and dump Ward for an available option in most IDP formats.

The 49ers picked Norther Illinois S Jimmie Ward in the 1st round of the NFL draft.  NFL Network's Mike Mayock called Ward a "natural centerfielder" who's not afraid to come down in the box.  "He answered the bell every game in college," Mayock added.  Ward should be able to beat out veteran free-agent addition Antoine Bethea to start next to S Eric Reid, last year's 1st-rounder.  Ward looks like a better IDP bet by virtue of his in-the-box play.
