The 49ers thought they had a handle on the situation by having Ford undergo platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections during training camp. The problem resurfaced during the team's Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ford played just 16 snaps during San Francisco's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.

It sounds like Ford is preparing to just play through the discomfort this season, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

"[My knee] will never be 100 percent," Ford told The Athletic before the regular-season opener earlier this month. "It's enough. It's enough. I wouldn't step on the field if I wasn't ready."

The 49ers surrendered a 2020 second-round draft pick on March 12 to acquire Ford from the Kansas City Chiefs, and then quickly signed him to a new five-year deal. He has two sacks and a forced fumble through three games this season.

Ford, who is in his sixth NFL season, recorded career-highs of 13 sacks, 55 combined tackles, and seven forced fumbles last year with the Chiefs.
