Notes: Goode Fined 10K; Injury Update
The league fined linebacker Najee Goode $10,000 for his hit to the head of Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien Sunday.
Goode, filling in for the injured Mychal Kendricks, was whistled for roughing the passer in the fourth quarter after his hands came in contact with Tolzien’s helmet.
“I can’t afford it,” said Goode, who is making $480,ooo this season, joking: “I’m going to make DeMeco [Ryans] pay for it.”
Goode says he plans on appealing the fine, though the evidence may be stacked against him.
Kendricks (knee), Jason Peters (quad), Earl Wolff (knee) and Jake Knott (hamstring) all sat out of Wednesday’s practice.
Wolff is expected to miss multiple games. Chip Kelly addressed the status of Peters and Kendricks.
“They’re both day to day,” said Kelly. “They’re not full go. We’ll see how the week goes along. We’re hopeful.”
Bradley Fletcher (pec), Brent Celek (hip) and Michael Vick (hamstring) were limited.
Bradley is in the same boat as [Peters and Kendricks],” said Kelly. “He ran around a little bit yesterday. We’ll see what he can do and can’t do. He’s practiced for the last couple of days. It’s just what can he get from a strength standpoint up top. He can run and his legs are fine. Patrick Chung [shoulder] is full.”
Trent Cole [illness], Riley Cooper [knee] and Cedric Thornton [knee] were all listed as full participants.
