Niners DE Dee Ford is expected to miss his 2nd straight game Sunday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The injury was listed as a neck issue for Week 2, which Ford missed. Pelissero reports it as a back injury that needs to "settle down" and "may take some time." Ford has spent a lot of time dealing with various ailments since joining the 49ers last offseason. He's fine to dump in most IDP redraft leagues until this current injury "settles." The injuries to both him and DE Nick Bosa leaves room for new 49er Ezekiel Ansah and DE Kerry Hyder to see plenty of snaps.
The 49ers have ruled DE Dee Ford (neck) out for Sunday's game against the Jets. We'll see about his status heading into Week 3.
Niners DE Dee Ford is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He missed the final 2 days of practice this week with a neck injury, making Ford an iffy bet for IDP lineups even if he's active.

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.
