49ers’ Richard Sherman, Jaquiski Tartt won’t play vs. Falcons, says Kyle Shanahan

Dec 12, 2019 at 5:37 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers defense will be missing key contributors this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR on Thursday, and in addition to revealing that defensive tackle D.J. Jones is headed to injured reserve, said the defense would also be without two starting defensive backs, Richard Sherman and Jaquiski Tartt.

Sherman is dealing with a Grade 2 hamstring strain suffered during Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints. It's an injury that typically requires weeks of recovery. Sherman told reporters on Thursday that he doesn't expect to be sidelined that long.

"I could play this week if we had to have it, but they're just being precautious," Sherman said, "and it will give me another week to heal. ... The coaching staff says I can't go, then I can't go, but I expect to be able to go the following game."

Tartt was inactive against the Saints after suffering a rib injury the week before in Baltimore. His injury is more of a pain tolerance issue, at this point, and the safety will get another week to recover.

"Hopefully, we can get him going next week," Shanahan said on the "Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks" show. "It's still going to be tight."

Shanahan provided an update on another defensive back, K'Waun Williams, saying he remains in the concussion protocol.

"We'll see how he comes in tomorrow," he added.

Could the 49ers Move Richard Sherman From Cornerback to Safety?

Richard Sherman was one of the most hated opponents in 49ers history. Currently, Richard Sherman is one of the most beloved members of the 49ers roster. So much has changed since the loudmouth, superstar cornerback took a dinner meeting with Kyle Shanahan a little over two years ago. Back then, the 49ers were coming off of a 6-10 season, ending the year with a 5-game winning streak led by newly acquired QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Expectations were high, the 49ers were a media darling and Jimmy Garoppolo was heralded as the next great QB. The addition of Richard Sherman shocked the football world and set the bar even higher for the once great franchise. Two years later, the 49ers are coming off of a heartbreaking Super Bowl loss. Although he faltered in the final moments of Super

Trent Williams athletic enough to play 3-technique, says 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

There is no doubt that Trent Williams is among the most athletic offensive linemen in the NFL. The tackle joined the San Francisco 49ers via a trade in April and will replace another athletic offensive lineman in recently retired Joe Staley. It's not often that a team can lose a player like Staley and gain one like Williams. The 49ers offensive line shouldn't miss a beat during the transition, and some might argue that it may have improved with the switch. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was in Washington when the team drafted Williams and is excited to bring him to the Bay Area. Shanahan knows a good NFL tackle when he sees one. "I've been so fortunate, just in the places I've been, to be with some of the best tackles in the league," Shanahan told Greg

After more criticism, Florio says 49ers' Kyle Shanahan has a 'very good chance' to be the next Bill Belichick

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is very committed to his stance on San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's parting words from an interview for this past week's State of the Francisco event. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan said. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right now, is we've got to get right back to that moment. We've got to get right back to that fourth quarter, and get to have a lead, and we've got to finish the job." It's that last part that irked Florio and was the focus of two video discussions, one with Chris Simms, and the
