49ers injury news: WR Jalen Hurd unlikely to play vs. Buccaneers, says Kyle Shanahan

Sep 4, 2019 at 1:01 PM--

There was some hope that San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Jalen Hurd might play on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't sound too confident about Hurd's status while speaking with reporters before Wednesday's practice.

Hurd has been dealing with back issues since the 49ers' second game of the preseason, an August 19 matchup against the Denver Broncos. He did not play in the team's final two exhibition games. He did not practice on Monday. Hurd will not practice on Wednesday, either. Players had Tuesday off.

"Most likely not going to play this week," Shanahan said during his Wednesday press conference. "Haven't ruled him out yet but if I had to say something today, he's doubtful."

Shanahan doesn't believe the injury is a long-term issue and is more a week-to-week situation. It isn't, however, the day-to-day issue it was once believed to be.

As for Wednesday's practice, defensive end Nick Bosa (ankle) will be limited. He returned to practice on Monday along with cornerback Jason Verrett (ankle), who will also be limited. The hope is that both will be available for Sunday's game.

Wide receiver Dante Pettis (groin), center Weston Richburg (knee), and cornerback K'Waun Williams (knee) will also be limited.

In addition to Hurd, not practicing are wide receiver Trent Taylor (foot) and tackle Joe Staley, who is receiving a veteran-day off.

The list is a top 25 ranking, and two players represent the San Francisco 49ers. The first — 26-year-old offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill — comes in at No. 10. The

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

Players entered the team's facilities this weekend after each underwent two COVID-19 tests and took part in physicals on Saturday. Sunday's lack of announcements bodes well for several players who missed all or part of last season. That is good news as the 49ers prepare to start training camp.
