49ers guard Mike Person day-to-day with foot strain, says John Lynch

Aug 17, 2019 at 8:09 AM--

San Francisco 49ers fans received a bit of a scare when reports circulated that starting right guard Mike Person was seen after Friday's joint practice with the Denver Broncos getting around on crutches and wearing an orthopedic boot over his left foot.

The situation seemed less dire when Matt Barrows of The Athletic, who initially noticed Person's condition, later reported that the injury might not have been as serious as it first appeared.

That was confirmed by general manager John Lynch on Saturday morning, who said Person suffered a foot strain and is day-to-day.

Person started a career-high 16 games for the 49ers last season after joining the team on May 9, 2018. It was the start of his second stint with San Francisco, which made Person a seventh-round draft pick out of Montana State in 2011. He spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, and two stints with the Indianapolis Colts before re-joining the 49ers.

The 49ers signed Person, who was scheduled to become a free agent, to a three-year deal on March 3, 2019.

Lynch provided an update on another injured guard, Joshua Garnett. The plan for the offensive lineman is to ease him back into practice next week but with a cast over his hand to protect his injured finger.

Lynch said Dee Ford will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. The status of the team's other pass rusher, rookie Nick Bosa, is yet to be determined.

Lynch said the team remains cautiously optimistic about the return of running back Jerick McKinnon, which mirrors what the general manager said on Friday and can be read about here.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and the team's contract negotiators continue to work diligently to come to an agreement with tight end George Kittle's agent, Jack Bechta, on an extension. Fans were probably hoping that would have been finalized by now, with training camp well underway. The situation isn't something that head coach Kyle Shanahan has to be too concerned with, for now. He remains focused on preparing his players for an unprecedented and unpredictable 2020 season, set to be played amid a pandemic. Shanahan's focus is on football and not contract negotiations. That's the job of Lynch and his staff. Still, Shanahan knows how important Kittle is to the 49ers. He's a special player who the coach considers to be the best

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch jumped on KNBR this morning and discussed several topics. Among them was an injury update on second-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who he believes may miss games early on during the upcoming season. Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot during a player-organized practice in June while in Tennessee. "Deebo was really working," Lynch said on the Murph and Mac show. "That's the wonderful thing we've learned about this kid ... He's a worker. He wants to be great at football, and that sure showed in his first year. But I think it's even showed more on his desire to be great. "He was working tremendous when our players were down in Nashville doing some workouts that Jimmy (Garoppolo)

It was reported in June that the San Francisco 49ers signed head coach Kyle Shanahan to a contract extension, keeping him with the team through the 2025 season. That led to questions about why the team didn't do the same for general manager John Lynch at the time. The two, after all, joined the 49ers at the same time with matching six-year contracts. Lynch may be getting a new deal soon. That's what he indicated Tuesday morning during an interview on KNBR. RELATED: John Lynch says George Kittle will report to training camp, won't put a
