49ers-Chiefs Injury Report: Marquise Goodwin, Jaquiski Tartt questionable for Sunday

Sep 21, 2018 at 1:04 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan expects his two starting cornerbacks, Richard Sherman and Ahkello Witherspoon, to be ready to go. Sherman missed Thursday's practice with what was listed as a heel injury.

"Sherm, I expect him to be out there," Shanahan said Friday morning during a KNBR interview. "He didn't practice yesterday. He's had some wear and tear on his heel and everything like that that he's been through. We're taking it smart with him."

Witherspoon played through an ankle injury during last weekend's win over the Detroit Lions. He was also listed with a hip injury in this week's practice reports.

"He hasn't been 100 percent," Shanahan said. "We talked about that last week. Hopefully, he'll be 100 percent by game day."

Shanahan added: "They'll be ready to go on Sunday. They'll be up to a big challenge because, like I said, how fast [the Chiefs] can run and how good their players are. But our guys will be ready to go, and I think we'll get after them on Sunday."

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (quadricep) will be a game-time decision and Shanahan puts the chances of him playing on Sunday at about 50 percent.

"It's tough to break down on it, especially as a receiver, to make cuts," Shanahan said. "He's not there yet. Hopefully, he'll be there by Sunday, but that will be a 50/50 situation."

Safety Jaquiski Tartt, who injured his shoulder against the Lions, is questionable to play on Sunday.

Linebacker Malcolm Smith (hamstring) has been practicing all week and could see some work at one of the middle linebacker spots. Shanahan has not tipped his hand on who his two starters will be at those positions. Reuben Foster will undoubtedly be one of the starters as he returns from a two-game suspension. Rookie linebacker Fred Warner has been impressive in his two starts with Foster and Smith out.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Chiefs. Also included are Friday's practice participation reports, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Fans weren't sure if Jaquiski Tartt would play this season. The San Francisco 49ers safety dealt with a toe injury during training camp, and his future seemed uncertain. Tartt wasn't even sure when he would return to the field. "For me, I was thinking ... Man, I probably won't be back until game five, game six," Tartt told reporters after Friday's practice. Tartt was ready to go for Week 1. "The training staff did a great job, coaches did a great job of attacking the problem with my toe," the safety continued. "For me, it was more of a spiritual thing as well, just keeping faith that I'll be back in time." There were several potential game-changing plays during the 49ers' Week 2 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. One might

49ers-Packers: Elijah Mitchell's injury 'a little worse' than thought but he could play Sunday, says Kyle Shanahan

Before today's practice, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters and shared several injury updates. First, he confirmed that defensive lineman Kevin Givens (ankle) and running back JaMycal Hasty (ankle), who the coach previously said would be out "a while," will both head to injured reserve. Running back Elijah Mitchell was also injured during the team's Week 2 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Shanahan initially hoped his shoulder injury was just a stinger but told reporters today that it was a bit worse without revealing the specifics of the injury. "Elijah Mitchell has a shoulder, will not practice," Shanahan said. "... A little worse than a stinger, so that's why he can't go today. He's got a chance at Sunday." Defensive
