Wide receiver DeAndre Smelter will not participate in the 49ers’ practices this week against the Denver Broncos, coach Chip Kelly indicated on Monday.

Smelter, a fourth-round draft pick in 2015, sat out his entire rookie season after sustaining a torn ACL in his final season at Georgia Tech. He battled a hamstring issue during the 49ers’ offseason program this spring, further setting back his development.

Smelter was held out of Sunday’s exhibition opener against the Houston Texans due to an undisclosed condition after missing the past several days of practices. And his return to the practice field appears does not appear to be imminent.
