Shanahan on Marquise Goodwin: ‘I’d be surprised if he wasn’t ready to go on Sunday’

Oct 6, 2017 at 1:48 PM--

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin suffered a concussion against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, which limited what the offense could do in matchups against the defense. It was Goodwin's fourth concussion in fewer than 14 months. The receiver has been in the concussion protocol this week, which limited what he can do in practice until he was cleared by the medical staff.

"We've had him in a blue jersey so he's had no contact all week," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said during a KNBR interview Friday morning. "I think he's got to pass his contact test today and then he'll be good to go."

Following Friday's practice, Shanahan gave another update on Goodwin's progress, indicating that the receiver is likely to play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. Goodwin was listed as questionable on the team's Friday injury report.

"He's been good," Shanahan said. "He's gone all week so I'd be surprised if he wasn't ready to go on Sunday."

Like Goodwin, running back Matt Breida was also in a no-contact blue jersey this week but not because of a concussion. He was dealing with an ankle injury.

"We kept a blue jersey on him all week just to keep the contact off of him," Shanahan said. "You never know, dealing with an ankle. But he had it taped up well and made it through the week and I expect it not to be a problem on Sunday."

Shanahan also offered some clarification on what he said during Friday morning's KNBR interview when the 49ers head coach gave the impression that rookie linebacker Reuben Foster might be able to play in next weekend's game against the Washington Redskins. Shanahan was asked if that timeline was realistic.

"I don't know if the game is," Shanahan said on Friday afternoon. "I think our goal is to, realistically, try to get him out to practice on Wednesday and then we're going to kind of play it from there. Same thing with [Eric] Reid. They're both kind of in the same boat. They definitely weren't ready to practice this week. We're anticipating they'll be ready to go on Wednesday. Then it will be a day-to-day thing to see if they have a chance in that game."

Javon Hargrave ready to kick in doors with 49ers

Javon Hargrave earned a 91.1 overall Pro Football Focus grade against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game. It was his second-highest grade of the season (91.5, Week 18 vs. Giants). His 92.9 pass-rush grade was also his second-highest of the season (93.1, Week 10 vs. Commanders). The Philadelphia Eagles recorded 20 total pressures that afternoon. Five came via Hargrave, tying Haason Reddick's five for the game lead. Hargrave's season pass-rush grade of 91.1 (regular season and playoffs) was surpassed by only two interior defensive linemen—Dexter Lawrence and Chris Jones—and it wasn't even the Eagles defensive tackle's best career pass-rush grade. That came a season earlier in 2021 when he earned a 91.6 mark, the pinnacle of steadily improving

The San Francisco 49ers have been known as a team that has built throughout the draft in the Kyle Shanahan era, which has led to seasoned success throughout the head coach's tenure, with the organization reaching the NFC Championship Game three times over the past four seasons.

With the NFL Draft approaching next month, and the 49ers having another integral draft for their future success, let's revisit the five biggest draft mistakes of the Shanahan-Lynch era thus far.

49ers considered trading Mike McGlinchey last year

By David Bonilla

Mike McGlinchey received a life-changing payday, signing a five-year, $87.5 million deal with the Denver Broncos. The offensive tackle has known for a while that he would not return to the San Francisco 49ers, the only NFL team he has played for and the one that made him the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear to McGlinchey that he was likely playing his final months for the team. There was too much money invested in other spots, and the 49ers knew they couldn't compete with other interested teams. Behind the scenes, Lynch and Shanahan kept McGlinchey in the loop of what the team was thinking, and everything pointed to the tackle playing elsewhere in 2023 … maybe even

Brock Purdy can begin throwing again sometime in June. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is expected to be ready to hit the field—practice or in-game—sometime in September. Purdy is recovering from surgery to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow, an injury sustained in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He hasn't been seen since the surgery, with his last public appearance taking place In Arizona, during the week leading to the Super Bowl. One fan spotted Purdy, though, getting a photo with the 49ers quarterback (h/t TheSFNiners). As expected, Purdy is wearing a massive brace on his throwing arm,
