49ers may only have four receivers available vs. Saints due to injuries

Dec 6, 2019 at 12:36 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers may be down two receivers when the team kicks off on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. That's because two wideouts, Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis, are listed as "questionable" to play.

Goodwin was active this past weekend against the Baltimore Ravens after being inactive during Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. He never stepped on the field for an offensive snap in Baltimore, however.

Goodwin is listed on the team's practice report with knee and foot injuries.

"He's had some wear and tear, some chronic stuff," head coach Kyle Shanahan said of Goodwin on Friday, "and then it just flamed up enough that we had to list it today. So when we do that, it's questionable."

Pettis, meanwhile, was inactive against the Ravens after suffering a knee sprain during a practice in the week leading to the game. Shanahan didn't sound too optimistic that Pettis might be available on Sunday.

"We mainly just did walk-through today, so he was able to go through walk-through," Shanahan said of Pettis, "so that was good. It gives him a chance to hopefully be able to go next week."

Shanahan was asked if he would go with just four receivers if Pettis and Goodwin cannot play.

"Yeah, we'd have to. Yep," the coach responded.

Goodwin has just 12 receptions for 186 yards with a touchdown through nine games this season. Pettis hasn't fared any better. He has hauled in 11 passes for 109 yards with two touchdowns through 11 games.

The 49ers' remaining receivers on the roster are Emmanuel Sanders, Deebo Samuel, Kendrick Bourne, and Richie James.

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

Two writers for The Athletic, Matt Barrows and David Lombardi, recently took a shot at predicting the San Francisco 49ers' 53-man roster. That's not an easy task, given the unusual circumstances surrounding the offseason. NFL players haven't even practiced together in an official capacity. Although, that will happen soon, thanks to a recent agreement between the league and the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). Training camps will begin next week, once players undergo two separate COVID-19 tests. The first couple of weeks will focus on strength and conditioning and walk-throughs. Players will finally put on helmets on the 18th day and then pads on the

A Super Bowl contender could be getting even better this season. The San Francisco 49ers are receiving several reinforcements from last year's injury-depleted roster. Players entered the team's facilities this weekend after each underwent two COVID-19 tests and took part in physicals on Saturday. Sunday's lack of announcements bodes well for several players who missed all or part of last season. That is good news as the 49ers prepare to start training camp. All #49ers would've taken physicals by SAT and no additional
