49ers’ Pierre Garçon headed to injured reserve; Cassius Marsh in the concussion protocol

Dec 10, 2018 at 4:22 PM--

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Pierre Garçon will be headed to injured reserve this week and undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed to reporters on Monday.

Garçon did not play during Sunday's victory against the Denver Broncos. It was his fourth-straight missed game and his fifth in six games.

"We've waited on Pierre for a bit," Shanahan said. "It was going very positive for a while. That's why we felt real good about it. But, came back from that Bye week and it had gotten worse.

"We tried our hardest last week. He went out and went full-go Wednesday, it swelled up on him, caused him a lot of pain.

"After having that same thing through almost most of the year, especially it was the week before the Green Bay game that it really started coming, it was just lingering too long where P knew he had to get something done, a scope. So, we had to shut him down."

The 49ers signed Garçon to a five-year deal on March 9, 2017. San Francisco has a potential out on his contract after the season.

Garçon ends the season with 24 receptions for 286 yards with one touchdown through eight games.

Shanahan said defensive end Cassius Marsh is in the concussion protocol. Cornerbacks Ahkello Witherspoon (ankle) and Tarvarius Moore (shoulder) are day-to-day as the team prepares for its second bout against the Seattle Seahawks.

The 49ers will re-check running back Matt Breida (ankle), safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder), cornerback K'Waun Williams (knee), and linebackers Mark Nzeocha (groin) and Malcolm Smith (Achilles) on Wednesday before the team's first practice of the week.

The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves on Tuesday. Running back Jeff Wilson Jr. and wide receiver Richie James Jr. have been activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list. That means the team no longer has any players on the list. James, however, is being moved to the active/non-football-injury list due to the broken wrist he suffered in June. The 49ers waived safety D.J. Reed with an injury designation. He will revert to NFI reserve once he clears waivers. Reed suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June and will miss the season. "That's a tough one for us," general manager John Lynch told reporters on Monday.

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team added wide receiver Richie James Jr. to its reserve/COVID-19 list. The list is reserved for those testing positive for the virus or being quarantined after close contact with an infected person. One can speculate that it might be the latter, as Matt Barrows of The Athletic reported earlier today that no players from the 49ers' initial reporting group had tested positive. James becomes the first 49ers player to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Per agreed upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on the player's medical status other than referring to roster status. Clubs may not disclose
