49ers’ D.J. Jones may have season-ending injury, Kentavius Street could be activated, says Kyle Shanahan

Dec 11, 2019 at 12:03 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers defensive line keeps taking hits. The unit might be without defensive lineman D.J. Jones for the remainder of the season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Wednesday that defensive tackle D.J. Jones will not practice because of an ankle injury, and the setback could be significant enough where the defender might be finished for the year.

Jones' injury took place during Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints. The team is awaiting the results of further testing.

Shanahan didn't sound too optimistic about Jones' status and said the loss could prompt the 49ers to activate defensive lineman Kentavius Street from injured reserve.

"We've got Sheldon (Day), who can do it," Shanahan added, "we've got Solomon (Thomas), who can do it, all the guys on the inside, who can do it, (Arik) Armstead, [DeForest Buckner]."

The other players who will sit out Wednesday's practice are defensive end Dee Ford (hamstring), safety Jaquiski Tartt (ribs), defensive lineman Jullian Taylor (elbow), and cornerback Richard Sherman (hamstring) and K'Waun Williams (concussion).

Levin T. Black is an unsung podcast hero. Carefully striking a balance between obsessed analytics nerd and the wise elder statesman at the bar. His insights, humor, and wit are one-third of the very best 49ers podcast out there — the 49ers Webzone "No Huddle Podcast" (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google PlayMusic). I don't say this because I write for the Webzone myself. Long before I volunteered to write here, I would search for a good 49ers podcasts to listen to. It would take quite some time before I found the No Huddle Podcast. At that time, Levin T. Black was yet to join the crew, but it didn't take long to get hooked by host Zain Naqvi's commentary on the best franchise in sports. When Levin T. Black joined the

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

By Bret Rumbeck

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old
