Dee Ford, Matt Breida, other injured 49ers have ‘a chance’ to play vs. Ravens, says Kyle Shanahan

Nov 25, 2019 at 2:22 PM--


Defensive end Dee Ford did not play against the Green Bay Packers during Sunday night's 37-8 win by the San Francisco 49ers. You might not have necessarily noticed because the defensive front looked as dominant as it has all season.

Still, the 49ers would like to get the impactful pass rusher back onto the football field.

Ford is dealing with a hamstring injury suffered during Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about the veteran's chances of playing on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.

"I think he's very similar to the other guys in that group," Shanahan responded and then looked over a list of injured players he had with him. "I mean, Robbie (Gould), (Matt) Breida, and (Joe) Staley, I think they've all got a chance to go this week, but it's still — just throwing a number out there — it's still going to be 50/50.

"Usually, when you have a hamstring (injury), it usually takes a couple of weeks, and I think it will be two weeks on Sunday. So he's definitely got a chance."

Kicker Robbie Gould is dealing with a right quadricep injury suffered during practice after the 49ers' Week 9 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Running back Matt Breida aggravated his ankle during Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks while tackle Joe Staley had surgery following that game to repair a fractured finger.

Yes, they play different positions and will be asked to do different things this season. Still, veteran pass rusher Dee Ford sees similarities between incoming rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and pass rusher Nick Bosa, who was a rookie last year. Ford was asked about Kinlaw during a video conference call on Thursday. "Everything that you want to see in a rookie — he wants to be a sponge, he wants to soak everything up, and he wants to learn," Ford said. "He reminds me of Bosa when he came in. He didn't say too much. When you're a first-round draft pick ... you can be a little entitled. That's not him. That's not (in) his DNA. "He fits in well with the guys. When you come here, John (Lynch) and Kyle (Shanahan), they get specific players, so

The deal makes the All-Pro the highest-paid tight end in football history. Pass rusher Dee Ford spoke with reporters on Thursday via a video conference call.

"I do remember that game," Ford responded. "Me, him, and Joe (Staley) talked a lot, my last year in Kansas City, in between the plays. It was a very fun game. "Kittle is Kittle, man. He's a beast. Of course we planned for him, and he still
