Jim O’Neil says that CB Will Redmond will be placed on IR

Nov 8, 2016 at 10:41 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim O'Neil met with the media today and stated that he does not expect rookie CB Will Redmond to be activated to the team's 53-man roster. That means that he will revert back to the Injured Reserve list at 1 p.m. Pacific, ending his 2016 season without playing a single snap.

O'Neil was asked if he thought Redmond would be activated. "No, I don't," he answered. "I think that he will not be activated and he will not practice today."

He was then asked if Redmond would be placed on Injured Reserve. "Yeah, that's the plan," O'Neil answered.

The third-round draft pick participated late in the preseason with the 49ers but was placed on injured reserve prior to the start of the season. He took part during the team's offseason program but was limited.

Following the selection, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said that he was comfortable that Redmond will be ready in time for the team's training camp in late July. "He will be healthy," Baalke declared. "He will be ready to go. So that's a simple answer to a simple question."

Redmond suffered an ACL tear during a Mississippi State practice on October 22, 2015, continuing a troubling trend by Baalke of selecting injured players. However, when speaking to reporters following being drafted, Redmond stated, "I expect to play in 2016."

The failure of Redmond to play a snap this season just adds fuel to the massive amount of criticism toward the 49ers general manager, who fans want to be fired.

49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan says RB JaMycal Hasty broke his collarbone, provides other injury updates

San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter of today's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He later left for the locker room to be examined. The injury left the 49ers with Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter as the only available running backs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game and said that Hasty suffered a broken collarbone. That means he'll probably miss a significant amount of time and will likely become yet another 49ers player to land on injured reserve. Shanahan is hoping to get running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) back after the bye week. "I'm hoping they are," Shanahan said of their chances to return in time for the 49ers' Week 12

"He did have some close contacts," Shanahan said. "When we get them all, they'll be on the list, so you'll see that. I think with this being out bye week, we weren't in there anyways.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Tuesday that the San Francisco 49ers plan to put another waiver claim on Takkarist McKinley. The Atlanta Falcons waived the defensive end last week and he was claimed by the Cincinnati Bengals. The situation changed on Tuesday when the Bengals waived McKinley after the defender failed his physical, making him available again. "I was told today that Take failed his physical," Shanahan said, "and I know we put in a claim last time. I don't think that's until tomorrow at 1 (pm PT), but I know we plan on putting another claimer in." Last week, in addition to the Bengals and 49ers, the Cleveland Browns and Las Vegas Raiders
