DENVER (AP) — Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock suffered a jammed right thumb Monday night in a preseason game against San Francisco.
The second-round pick said his X-rays were negative...
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The Chicago Bears weren't about to let a late hit on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky go unanswered, and Richard Sherman wasn't going to let the Bears retaliate against San Francisco teammate Marcell Harris without a fight.
When the melee ended following Harris' late hit in Sunday's 14-9 win for the Bears over the 49ers, three players were ejected and neither team was happy.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — It took Marcell Harris longer than he hoped to make an impact in the San Francisco 49ers' secondary.
The rookie is making up for lost time now.
Harris' development at strong safety is one of the encouraging late-season storylines for the 49ers (4-10), who shoot for their third consecutive victory Sunday when they host the Chicago Bears.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Defensive back Antone Exum Jr. and offensive lineman Matt Tobin have signed one-year contracts with the San Francisco 49ers.
The team also announced Monday that safety Marcell Harris and running back Jerick McKinnon were placed on the season-ending injured reserve list. McKinnon tore the ACL in his right knee on the final play of practice Saturday, a big blow after he signed a four-year, $30 million contract in free agency.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead has been sidelined by a hamstring injury.
The 49ers announced Tuesday that Armstead is week-to-week because of the injury. The team also said tight end Cole Hikutini will miss practice this week with a groin injury and right guard Joshua Garnett is day to day with a knee injury.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers signed sixth-round safety Marcell Harris to a four-year deal.
The deal announced Monday means the Niners have six of their nine draft picks already signed.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Marcell Harris, the Florida safety who tore his right Achilles tendon in late July and missed all of last season, is forgoing his final year of eligibility and entering the NFL draft.
Harris announced the decision Thursday on Instagram, saying he "became strong mentally and gained different perspectives of the game that I may have never seen" while sitting out.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — When coach Jim McElwain took over at Florida, he inherited one of the Southeastern Conference's stingiest defenses.
The unit got even better during McElwain's first two seasons in Gainesville. The Gators finished eighth in yards allowed in 2015 and fifth last year, no question the main reason they played for back-to-back conference championships.
Keeping the defense at that level could be Florida's biggest challenge heading into this season.
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida senior safety Marcell Harris will miss the season after tearing his right Achilles tendon during conditioning drills, a significant setback for a defense already replacing seven starters.
Harris sustained the season-ending injury while running with teammates on Wednesday.
