49ers’ Kwon Alexander undergoing surgery to repair biceps injury

Feb 14, 2020 at 12:08 PM--


It turns out that a pectoral injury wasn't the only thing San Francisco 49ers linebacker Kwon Alexander played through during this past NFL postseason. He is undergoing surgery on Friday to repair a biceps injury that he played through during the playoffs and Super Bowl LIV, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.


As Rapoport states, Alexander is expected to fully recover in time for the 2020 season. The report of the biceps injury is new.

The star linebacker suffered a torn pectoral muscle during a Week 9 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The injury landed Alexander on injured reserve on November 5, and he wasn't expected to play again during the 2019 season.

Alexander returned for the playoffs, and the 49ers' Super Bowl run. He appeared in all three postseason games and recorded two tackles and a pass defensed in those matchups.

Alexander finished the regular season with 34 tackles, 0.5 sacks, four passes defensed, an interception, and a forced fumble through eight starts. He is preparing to enter his sixth NFL season and second with San Francisco.

The linebacker restructured his contract in November, following his injury, saving the 49ers over $8 million in salary-cap space this year.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Jimmy Garoppolo would be a full participant in practice on Wednesday, indicating that the plan is for the quarterback to start on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. At least, that remains the hope. "He's ready to go out there and go today," Shanahan said. "He's still coming back from it, but I expect him to have a full practice, and I'll evaluate him out there." The coach added that he felt Garoppolo practiced well last week, and the team was confident in his health, leading to Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. "I think that's why he was able to get through most of the game, and probably could have continued to get through most of the game," Shanahan added, "but I

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 6 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was a full participant in practice for the third consecutive day and will start on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams.

Kwon Alexander suffered a 'possible' high-ankle sprain; Shanahan not counting on Richard Sherman for 49ers-Rams

Kwon Alexander could be the latest San Francisco 49ers player sidelined. On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the linebacker suffered a "possible" high-ankle sprain on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. That doesn't necessarily mean injured reserve just yet, though, as the injury's severity hasn't been determined. Alexander played 66 of the 67 total snaps on defense against the Dolphins. "We could be wrong, but right now, they told me that they believe it's a high-ankle sprain," Shanahan told reporters. "They're not sure of the severity of it. It could be a minor one, for whatever that means. If it's automatic high-ankle sprain, I'd be talking about IR and stuff right now. But they told me to hold on that because they think it possibly could be a
