49ers’ Kyle Juszczyk and Mike McGlinchey expect to play vs. Seahawks

Nov 11, 2019 at 1:16 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers expect to have starting right tackle Mike McGlinchey and fullback Kyle Juszczyk back in the lineup for tonight's game against the Seattle Seahawks. It sounds like both of those players assume that to be the case, according to their social media posts today.

McGlinchey is "back at it," he says, and Juszczyk is "back at work."

That's a significant boost for the undefeated 49ers, who are headed into a crucial division matchup and will likely be without Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle.

McGlinchey, a second-year starter, has missed time since suffering a knee injury during Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns. He was listed as "questionable" to play against the Seahawks.

McGlinchey started each game of his NFL career before that Week-5 injury.

Juszczyk started practicing last week after suffering an MCL sprain during Week 5. He too was listed as "questionable" entering tonight's game.

Juszczyk, a seven-year veteran, entered the league as a fourth-round draft pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2013 and joined San Francisco in 2017. He has carried the football one time for six yards while adding six receptions for 76 yards through four starts this season, and his blocking ability is an important part of the team's run game.

Kyle Juszczyk once again ranked NFL's biggest outlier contract in 2020

Kyle Juszczyk is entering the final year of his four-year, $21 million deal. That is a lot of money for a fullback. Of course, few play-callers value the position as much as San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. Bill Barnwell of ESPN once again ranked the NFL's biggest outlier contracts in 2020, and for the fourth year in a row, Juszczyk's deal comes in at No. 1. The deal is a whopping 132 percent above the position average. That's a significant gap. "The gap between him and the rest of the pack has fallen after the (Derek) Watt and (C.J.) Ham contracts were signed, but there's still a huge space

Fred Warner, Kwon Alexander, 49ers linebackers 'hitting on all cylinders,' expect to be faster, smoother

Fred Warner loves what he's seen from the 49ers linebackers early in training camp. The San Francisco 49ers are looking to be better in all facets this season. Offensively, the team looks to build on its No. 2 ranked rushing attack and No. 13 ranked passing attack. On the other side of the football, it seeks to improve upon its No. 17 run defense and even its top-ranked pass defense. The 49ers are hoping it will be enough to achieve their goal, returning to the Super Bowl and, this time, winning it. While this offseason has been the polar opposite of typical, the team is returning most of its starters. That continuity will be an advantage since NFL teams were unable to take part in team-organized practices or workouts this offseason due to the

Seahawks' Acquisition of Jamal Adams Isn't a Checkmate to Kyle Shanahan and 49ers

By Levin T. Black
Jul 27, 2020

The Seattle Seahawks' trade for safety Jamal Adams gives the San Francisco 49ers' division rival one of the players best suited to defend an offense that features running backs and tight ends in the passing game. The San Francisco 49ers have perhaps the league's top offensive mind in head coach Kyle Shanahan while the Seahawks have a defensive guru for a head coach in Pete Carroll. When the 49ers have the ball the two go toe-to-toe on play calls in a manner that can only be compared to a game of chess. Shanahan calls passing plays designed to get tight end George Kittle or one of the bevy of players who line up in the backfield open as much as any coach in the NFL. Just fewer than 50 percent of the 49ers' passing yards in 2019 went to a back or tight
