49ers’ Trent Taylor feeling healthy, getting back to his ‘squirrely ways’

Jun 3, 2020 at 9:48 AM--

Wide receiver Trent Taylor is among the San Francisco 49ers' reinforcements who are expected to give the offense a boost during the upcoming season. He — along with Jalen Hurd — spent most of last season on injured reserve and didn't appear in a single game during the team's Super Bowl campaign.

Taylor dealt with a foot injury that he suffered during an August practice. That came after feeling limited as he recovered from back surgery in 2018.

The receiver has been catching passes from his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, and is feeling great while doing so. That is good news for the 49ers passing game as the team endeavors to return to the Super Bowl following a disheartening defeat in the big game in February.

"I'm getting back to my squirrely ways," Taylor recently told Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

Taylor has been part of a group of receivers that includes Hurd, Kendrick Bourne, and others catching passes from Garoppolo in the Bay Area.

Taylor, who is entering his fourth NFL season, and his position teammates aren't just out there molding their bodies and keeping them in football shape. They are molding their football minds during the throwing sessions.

"There's a lot of talking," Taylor said, "learning from the quarterback's perspective and the receiver's perspective. So I think it's real beneficial for us."

Taylor caught 69 receptions for 645 yards with three touchdowns in his first two seasons with the team. Most of that came during his rookie campaign in 2017 when he hauled in 43 passes for 430 yards with two trips into the end zone.

Taylor expects to be ready to go for the start of training camp, assuming it begins as it usually does at the end of July. The receiver is back to doing all of the things he is used to doing during the offseason.

"I don't know if you would say that I'm ready to go out and play a football game," Taylor added. "I mean, I could if I had to. But mainly, I'm just steadily getting back to normal right now. It feels good. My foot's able to run routes and make cuts right now. So I'm real happy to be back doing that."

Trent Williams received a video from his head coach on Sunday after the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. It was the block he had on linebacker Jordan Hicks during the game. "Wow, it's good to have you back," Kyle Shanahan said in the message that included the highlight. That block went viral on Sunday, and rightfully so. Williams absolutely obliterated the defender on the play, which featured tight end George Kittle on an end-around run. Here's some cleaner video of that viral clip of Trent Williams killing a man in broad daylight.

The San Francisco 49ers already lost pass rusher Nick Bosa for the season due to a torn ACL. It doesn't sound like the defense will be getting one of its other pass rushers, Dee Ford, back this week. A back injury kept him sidelined during Week 2, and he is expected to miss this weekend's game against the New York Giants, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. After further evaluation, #49ers DE Dee Ford is expected to

There wasn't a whole lot of good to take away from the San Francisco 49ers' 24-20 defeat against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon, and fans may not be ready to look at that game yet. Images of quarterback Kyler Murray evading 49ers defenders or wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins torching defensive backs may still be fresh in your minds. But how about just one memorable play? And maybe not the one you would first expect. No, it's not running back Raheem Mostert reaching a speed of nearly 23 MPH in a 76-yard touchdown run. It's a block by new 49ers left tackle Trent Williams, who absolutely obliterated Cardinals linebacker Jordan Hicks on an end-around run
