SANTA CLARA — Free safety Jimmie Ward’s availability for the 49ers’ season opener is suddenly in jeopardy because of a hamstring injury.

Ward got hurt in Monday’s hour-long practice that consisted of just 20 full-team snaps, the lightest session of training camp but also one that followed a day off.
