49ers’ Kyle Shanahan doesn’t expect Jalen Hurd to practice this week, as initially hoped

Nov 12, 2019 at 3:04 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week that Jalen Hurd had "a chance" to practice this week. He didn't sound as optimistic about his rookie wide receiver's chances during a conference call on Tuesday.

Hurd landed on injured reserve on October 3 due to a back injury. He has not played in a regular-season game.

"I'm still hoping for him to (practice), but we evaluate that at the end of each week, and based off of what I saw from him at the end of last week, I'm not expecting him this week," Shanahan said. "We'll see how he comes in here tomorrow, but he didn't meet enough requirements last week to start him for practicing, so I'm not expecting him now."

NFL teams can activate two players off injured reserve per season so long as they landed there after the 53-man roster cutdown on August 31. Players on injured reserve are eligible to return after eight weeks but can start practicing two weeks before then.

If activated, Hurd, 6-foot-4, would be the 49ers' tallest active receiver but also the least experienced.

Kyle Shanahan spoke with the voice of the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Papa, during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week. The head coach was asked what he sees from his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who isn't worried about recovering from an ACL injury this offseason. "I think Jimmy had an unbelievable year last year," Shanahan said. "When you look at him statistically, just percentages and stuff of what he did, he's extremely accurate, kept us in some very good situations, and won a few games for us, too. He had a number of games where he had to come out huge on some 3rd-and-longs, some last-minute drives, and make some big plays that won us some games." Shanahan noted Garoppolo's improvement from last offseason, to the start of the regular

A bearded Kyle Shanahan spoke with the voice of the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Papa, during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week. The head coach discussed the positives and negatives of a strange offseason, which has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As far as the teaching aspect of the offseason goes, Shanahan is proud of what his team has been able to accomplish. "Being able to do all this stuff in the classroom by doing it on these conference calls, that's been great," Shanahan said. "I mean, it's actually been more work than we would normally get in an offseason because usually, you get guys coming in the building, you've got to travel between meeting rooms, they're worrying about lifting, running, doing things like

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, like his players and staff, is itching to get back to football. As good as the 2019 season was, it ended on a sour note. A heartbreaking note, to be more accurate. The 49ers are motivated to climb back up that mountain and finish what they couldn't last season. This offseason has thrown its share of obstacles at the 49ers, though. A global pandemic has changed the way NFL teams conduct their offseason programs. Players haven't even been allowed into NFL facilities. They won't be until training camp next month, at the earliest. OTAs and minicamps have been replaced with Zoom video conferences and dissecting every detail of every play of the offense. Still, no one has been able to see how any of the
