49ers injury news: Joe Staley will ‘most likely’ return vs. Cardinals, says Kyle Shanahan

Oct 24, 2019 at 4:47 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said this week there is an "outside chance" that starting left tackle Joe Staley (fractured fibula suffered during Week 2) could play on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Although, the team's Thursday game against the Arizona Cardinals on October 31 — Halloween night — is more likely.

That's why Staley is getting some limited practice work this week. There won't be much of an opportunity to ease back onto the practice field on a short week after Sunday's game.

Shanahan joined KNBR on Thursday and provided a few injury updates, saying that wide receiver Deebo Samuel is likely to be on the field against the Panthers.

"Joe, we're still holding out hope," Shanahan added on the "Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks" show, "but I would say it's an outside chance for him. Hopefully, we'll get him by Arizona. I'm not ruling him out (against the Panthers) yet, but most likely that will be Arizona.

"And then the rest of the guys that we're waiting on to come back (Ahkello Witherspoon, foot; Mike McGlinchey, knee; Kyle Juszczyk, knee), hopefully, we'll get them after the Thursday-night game when we get a little bit of a longer week, and we can get them here for that Seattle Monday-night game (on November 11)."

Earlier this week, on a segment of Game Theory, Cynthia Frelund gave her argument as for why the San Francisco 49ers will make the playoffs in 2021 after missing out in 2020. Frelund attributed their recent Super Bowl appearance as a factor in her decision as well as the multitude of injuries that affected the team last season. "They were in the Super Bowl just like five minutes ago and they had a whole bunch of injuries, but they get all those players back." Looking at the offensive side of the ball, Frelund highlighted star tight end George Kittle, who, according to Next Gen Stats, has averaged 8.0 yards after the catch per reception since 2018, which is the highest in the NFL given a minimum of 25 receptions.

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...
