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)."

In any interview with San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, a question or two about his quarterback eventually comes up. After all, the media has been quick to toss much of the blame for February's Super Bowl loss on Jimmy Garoppolo's shoulders. The offseason flirtation with the idea of potentially adding Tom Brady gave the media even more ammo in the assault on the 49ers' signal-caller. Chris Simms of NBC Sports got his close friend, Shanahan, to return to his Chris Simms Unbuttoned podcast, which is an interesting hour-long interview, if you have the time. Simms asked the 49ers coach what he will try to preach to Garoppolo

A Super Bowl contender could be getting even better this season. The San Francisco 49ers are receiving several reinforcements from last year's injury-depleted roster. 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. All #49ers would've taken physicals by SAT and no additional
