Lynch: Ford came in with neck stiffness; his status is uncertain for Sunday

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch hopped on KNBR’s Murph & Mac show to discuss some injury updates as well as some performances from Week 1. The big concern remains Dee Ford, who Lynch said, “came in with neck stiffness, and we sent him for imaging. We are waiting to hear those results this morning.” Lynch is unsure about Ford’s status for Sunday’s game against the Jets. That’s....not great. The 49ers dealt with Ford’s injuries last season, and that affected players like Nick Bosa. With no Ford on the field Sunday, it’ll allow the Jets to double team Bosa and force someone else to beat them.
