Ford injures hamstring | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Niners DE Dee Ford left Sunday's win over the Cardinals in the 2nd quarter with a hamstring injury. We'll see about his status heading into Sunday night's clash with the Packers. Ford has been up and down while dealing with various lower-body injuries all season, though. He's not much of an IDP factor this year.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that DE Dee Ford will miss at least a week of action because of tendinitis in his left knee, according to multiple reports. Shanahan said Ford has had a platelet-rich plasma treatment on the joint, which he expects to help the issue. "He could've toughed it out ... but we feel good about where Dee Ford's at, and we wanted to make sure we took care of that so he could be fresh going into the year," Shanahan said. We won't alter Ford's projections just yet but will keep an eye on his return from this.

The 49ers have agreed to send a 2020 second-round pick to the Chiefs for OLB Dee Ford, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. The Niners will also reportedly give him a 5-year, $87.5 million contract. Ford enjoyed a breakout 2018, tying for 7th in the league with 13 sacks and tying for 5th in total QB hits (29). The move should switch Ford to DE in the Niners' 4-3 base, which would add significant IDP value. Kansas City, meanwhile, has jettisoned the only 2 OLBs who played more than 41% of the defensive snaps last year. Breeland Speaks and Tanoh Kpassagnon are prime replacement candidates for Ford and Justin Houston. We'll see what else the Chiefs add this offseason.

Chiefs OLB Dee Ford left in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with a hamstring injury and was ruled out. We'll see about his status for Week 12 and beyond. Further time off for Ford would only make it easier to find snaps for OLB Justin Houston.

Auburn DE/OLB Dee Ford went to the Chiefs with the 23rd pick of the NFL draft.  Ford doesn't look like a rookie starter on a 3-4 D that still boasts OLB Tamba Hali and OLB Justin Houston.  But Hali has just 1 year left on his contract beyond this season (at $8.75 million total).  Houston's in the final year of his deal but has reportedly already begun extension talks with the team.  Ford carries long-term intrigue for IDP owners but doesn't look like he'll factor into the 2014 IDP rankings.
