49ers guard Joshua Garnett expected to miss three weeks after surgery on finger, says Kyle Shanahan

Aug 1, 2019 at 12:15 PM--


Joshua Garnett is expected to miss the next three weeks after having surgery on his finger, head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Thursday. The San Francisco 49ers guard dislocated the finger during Saturday's first practice of training camp. The team thought it had the situation rectified, but Garnett re-injured the finger on Sunday and was forced to leave practice once again.

"Josh had a good OTAs," Shanahan told reporters. "He was in great shape. He's been working hard. He just had another unfortunate thing, with his finger. There was nothing he could have done about it. He tried to come out and practice with it but it kept popping out. That was going to continue to happen so we had to make the decision to get surgery."

Garnett is entering the final year of his four-year rookie contract. The 49ers opted against picking up his fifth-year option.

Garnett started 11 games during his rookie year in 2016 but then missed all of 2017 after landing on injured reserve with a knee injury just before the start of the season. He played in just 59 offensive snaps last season.

Kyle Shanahan still expects 49ers to trade Jimmy Garoppolo but it's 'not a guarantee'

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters for the first time since the draft. He stepped up to the podium after Tuesday's practice, the second of organized team activities. Of course, there was no shortage of reporters trying to pry quarterback information from the head coach, who did his best to limit his responses to such questions. That's likely because Shanahan knows how big of an offseason storyline the quarterback situation has become. Most expect second-year quarterback Trey Lance to be the starter, replacing veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. The 49ers hoped to trade Garoppolo by now, but the quarterback undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 halted any trade talks. Shanahan has suggested that the 49ers would be willing to hold onto

Kyle Shanahan wasn't eager to share an injury report on Tuesday after the San Francisco 49ers concluded their second practice of organized team activities. He had a list of injuries in front of him in case anyone asked about specific players. However, the coach didn't unnecessarily volunteer any information because he doesn't have to right now. That didn't stop reporters from asking about specific players based on their lack of participation during Tuesday's practice. Those questions led to Shanahan providing several updates.

Does the coach believe the relationship between player and team can be mended? "Yeah, of course I do," Shanahan responded. "I felt that last time I talked to you guys, at draft time. I feel the same, if not stronger." Has there been
