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)."

Will Jimmy Garoppolo return to the 49ers? 'I think we've spoken clearly to that,' says John Lynch

General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan sat down to speak with reporters (virtually, of course) on Monday and discussed the future of the San Francisco 49ers. The two expect quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to be part of that future. "Yes, I want Jimmy back as (part of) our core," Shanahan said. "Good thing he's not a free agent. ... Of course I want our starting quarterback back and all our other starting players too." The two were asked about Garoppolo because the quarterback position is slated to be this offseason's top 49ers-related storyline, just as it was last offseason leading to free agency. Lynch and Shanahan backed Garoppolo as the starting quarterback next season, as they have repeatedly done each time they are asked about

Kyle Juszczyk emotional while discussing his future, wants to return to 49ers

Kyle Juszczyk hopes to return to the San Francisco 49ers next season. Like so many of his teammates, he is scheduled to become a free agent. The fullback knows the situation, though. The team is pressed up against a salary cap that is expected to fall in 2021. That means some tough decisions are to be made, and Juszczyk is already by far the highest-paid fullback in the league. He is also the best and a key component in the 49ers' rushing attack. Juszczyk spoke with reporters on Monday via Zoom and was noticeably emotional while discussing his NFL future. "To be honest with you, it's just kind of a sense of (being) unsure," Juszczyk said of his NFL future. "I'm not totally sure what's ahead for me. I don't want it to be a sense of finality. Honestly, it's just
