Transcript: Kyle Shanahan discusses injuries to Nick Bosa, Jimmie Ward, Jalen Hurd, Trent Taylor, Tevin Coleman as 49ers prepare for Bengals

Sep 13, 2019 at 12:03 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters from Youngstown, Ohio on Friday as the team prepares for its Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Here is everything he had to say.

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff.

Opening comments:

"[RB] Tevin Coleman's out, [WR Jalen] Hurd is out, [WR Trent] Taylor's out and [DL Nick] Bosa and [DB] Jimmie Ward are questionable."

CB Jason Verrett?

"No, he's healthy, he's good."

What were you able to see from Bosa on the practice field just today?

"We went all walk-through today. So, I'll watch individuals full-speed but I didn't see that live, I'll watch it on tape when we get back to the hotel and seven-on-seven was the only live period. He looked good walking through everything. So, we'll talk to him, see how he looked in the individual and make a decision probably Sunday morning."

Did the fact that you guys practiced on turf this week have any influence on how much he practiced, what day he practiced, that sort of thing?

"No. You could ask him, but I think we're always a little more careful when you are on turf, doing it three days in a row especially with ankle stuff. We are more careful with that, but I think it would have been that same way regardless."

The game is also on artificial turf. Will that factor into his snap count and how much he plays?

"No, that won't affect it on game day."

Did Jimmie Ward progress as the week went on, just in terms of what he was able to do?

"Yeah, but he's still very limited today. That will be a game-time decision, that's why he's questionable."

How's the pain as far you know?

"You can ask him. I haven't asked him yet today, but I'm sure he's in a little."

Do you expect to promote RB Jeff Wilson Jr. tomorrow?

"I'm not sure."

In terms of if Verrett's up, he would be able to play special teams as well? He'd have to play special team too, most likely?

"I hope so. Everyone we'd get up, we'd like to be getting in somehow. That'd be a factor definitely."

You said you worked more being locked down at the hotel. Does the team seem like its more recharged staying here?

"I think we'll see here over the next 48 hours. I think I was saying this the other day, I at least talked to the team about it, I think we were real exhausted yesterday morning and now to me is where you reap these benefits. We've been on the East Coast long enough. We should be totally used to our body clocks with the time and now these next two days just sleeping as much as possible, drinking as much water because we know how humid it's going to be Sunday and I feel when it comes Sunday, we'll be able to be a lot more energized than we would have been if we went back home and flew out today."

Have you started reaping the benefits specifically?
I have not, but Friday is when I start. Friday's my weekend. So, once I'm done with you guys and we get there, I will be in the hotel room for a while relaxing."

Do you think yesterday was sort of the low point and then you start rebuilding it back up the next day?

"That's how I felt yesterday. That's how most people felt and that's what people explained to me based off of science and it does make sense so we'll see."

Head of player health and performance Ben Peterson had the heat tents going into the Tampa game. Were there any Ben Peterson wisdom mathematical stuff this week?

"Did he tell you to use his name? [Laughter] I don't know, you'd have to ask him. I haven't seen any saunas around out there."

Anything different this week aside from the fact you're staying in Ohio? Did you do anything body clock-wise that's different?

"No, body clock has been the same, that's why he stayed out here. We haven't done as much with the heat stuff and everything because it has been humid out here so we've kind of got that in practice which has been nice. But no, I think we're getting used to it."

Is the plan for Taylor and Hurd to get them back after the Bye?

"That's the plan. I hope so. I hope there's a chance next week, but that's really the goal."

Is Coleman on that list too?

"Yes, I kind of see all three of them in the same boat."

Football Outsiders has once again taken a look at the best young players in the league who don't have a lot of playing time. The feature for ESPN casts aside first-round picks and other top prospects, and instead focuses on those who didn't receive a lot of fanfare. "This is a list of players who have a strong chance to make an impact in the NFL despite their lack of draft stock and the fact they weren't immediate NFL starters," wrote Rivers McCown. 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

Joey Bosa suggests 49ers should start saving money for Nick Bosa's future contract

Joey Bosa and the Los Angeles Chargers came to terms on a five-year extension worth up to $135 million. The deal includes $102 million in guaranteed money. That's a new record for a defensive player, surpassing Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns. Bosa's $27 million average annual salary makes him football's highest-paid defender, according to Spotrac. Bosa is excited and grateful to have the deal done. The defender doesn't, however, expect the record amount to stand for very long. Instead, he believes it has merely helped reset the market in the right direction. Bosa even hinted that maybe the San Francisco 49ers should start saving up for a few years down the road

#PayGeorgeKittle The hashtag has taken on a life of its own on social media. San Francisco 49ers fans want to see their favorite team finally lock up popular All-Pro tight end George Kittle to a long-term contract. Agreeing on an extension remains a priority to the 49ers, even as the team shifts its focus toward training camp. Although, recent reports state that the two sides aren't "particularly close" on finalizing anything. Kittle reported to the 49ers' Santa Clara facility on Tuesday, though, for his first of two COVID-19 tests. The second will occur today. Should both come back negative, he will be allowed into the building as early as this
