49ers’ Matt Breida may ‘only miss a week or two’ after aggravating ankle sprain, per report

Nov 13, 2019 at 11:03 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Tuesday that running back Matt Breida is day-to-day after he aggravated his ankle again on Monday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

"Day-to-day," the coach said, not "week-to-week," which would indicate there is a chance Breida is available on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, however, reported this morning that Breida could miss a week or two after aggravating the ankle sprain, and is seeking a second opinion. It's an injury that put the running back's status into question during the 49ers' and Cardinals' first meeting in Week 9.


Breida, the 49ers' leading rusher, has 542 yards on 109 carries with a rushing touchdown through nine games and five starts this season. He also has 16 receptions for 110 yards and a receiving touchdown.

Shanahan provided injury updates on several players, including Joe Staley, Emmanuel Sanders, George Kittle, and Robbie Gould, during a Tuesday conference call.

The 49ers' first practice of the week is scheduled for today at 2:10 p.m. PT. That's when we will learn if Breida is healthy enough to at least get a little bit of work in as the team prepares for the Cardinals.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch jumped on KNBR this morning and discussed several topics. Among them was an injury update on second-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who he believes may miss games early on during the upcoming season. Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot during a player-organized practice in June while in Tennessee. "Deebo was really working," Lynch said on the Murph and Mac show. "That's the wonderful thing we've learned about this kid ... He's a worker. He wants to be great at football, and that sure showed in his first year. But I think it's even showed more on his desire to be great. "He was working tremendous when our players were down in Nashville doing some workouts that Jimmy (Garoppolo)

The San Francisco 49ers sound like they really want to take some of the pressure off of their hopefully-soon-to-be-extended All-Pro tight end, George Kittle. Head coach Kyle Shanahan could also be hoping to draw up some plays that utilize two tight ends at once on the football field. "In addition to inking Kittle to a bigger contract, the team's plan at tight end this offseason involved finding an accomplished backup who could relieve Kittle for stretches of a game," wrote Matt Barrows of The Athletic. "He missed two starts

Nick Bosa is pretty special. The San Francisco 49ers pass rusher was so impressive during his rookie campaign that he was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. He hopes to be even better in 2020. "My expectations are always high," Bosa told reporters in May. "I set my goals really high, and I've been achieving them. So, I'm just going to keep setting them high, and just keep working my butt off. I know the work that I'm putting in now is going to show up, and I think I'm going to be a much-smarter player next year. "I'm just going to know how to approach my opponents much better, and I'm not going to waste rushes. I'm not going to make silly
