Kyle Shanahan says Marquise Goodwin remains excused from the 49ers

Nov 28, 2018 at 1:23 PM--

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is going through a difficult time right now. The details of the personal matter which forced him to miss Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain unknown. For now, he remains excused from the team.

Goodwin was on the plane with his teammates when the 49ers traveled to Tampa, Florida last Friday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan excused Goodwin so he could return to the Bay Area to deal with the personal matter.

It is unknown when Goodwin will rejoin his teammates, who will practice for the first time this week at 1:25 p.m. PT on Wednesday.

"He's not in," Shanahan told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area asked the head coach if there was anything more he could say about the situation.

"No, nothing," Shanahan responded. "Same stuff. He's been excused. He just needs more time."

Shanahan told reporters on Monday that he wasn't sure if Goodwin would be back at all this week as the 49ers prepare for Sunday's road game against the Seattle Seahawks.

"It's a family matter, as you guys know, something personal," Shanahan told reporters after the Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. "He definitely wasn't in trouble (for leaving) because he's going through a serious situation. Our prayers are with him."

Former NFL offensive lineman turned sports broadcaster and analyst Ross Tucker doesn't "believe for a second" that the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks will enter Week 1 of the 2022 season with one of their current quarterbacks as the starter. Instead, he feels both teams will make a move to prevent that from happening. I don't believe for a second that the Panthers & Seahawks are going into Week 1 with their current QBs on the roster.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) May 16,

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I

Deebo Samuel is once again following his team, the San Francisco 49ers, on Instagram. That's significant considering the drama that ensued when the dynamic wide receiver stopped following the team, removed his profile picture, and all other 49ers-related content from his profile on the social media platform (h/t @OurSf49ers_). Deebo Samuel is once again following the #49ers on Instagram.

The 49ers are content with Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like
