Some 49ers players’ COVID-19 test results coming in negative

Jun 22, 2020 at 10:06 AM--


One San Francisco 49ers player last week tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. That individual took part in player-organized workouts in the Nashville, Tennessee area with 15 teammates throughout the week. All were potentially exposed and required testing themselves.

Those tests are starting to come in. So far, they have returned negative, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.


Of course, the 49ers did not reveal which player tested positive. The group working out in Tennessee consisted of all four quarterbacks, most of the team's receivers, tight ends George Kittle and Charlie Woerner, and fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

The NFLPA has since advised against player-organized workouts, like the 49ers' in Tennessee. Videos and photos from those sessions at the Brentwood Academy show many 49ers players without face masks and, at times, failing to observe social distancing during the workouts.

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner said last week that the team's strong locker room would be an advantage while fending off COVID-19. "I think we have one of the best locker rooms, one of the best groups of men in the whole NFL in our building," Warner told reporters via a video conference call. "I feel like everybody understands the situation and is willing to make the sacrifices needed." Warner noted that he has no plans to babysit any of his teammates. The players should already know the necessity to stay safe when they exit the 49ers facility. Offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey was asked about the team's mentality when

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that running back Jeff Wilson Jr. has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins wide receiver Richie James Jr., who was placed on the list on Monday.

If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine

COVID-19 could alter 49ers' East Coast travel plans

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers received a gift from NFL schedule makers when their two East Coast road games — against the New York Jets and Giants — were scheduled in during back-to-back weeks in September. The team planned to make a 10-day trip out of it, avoiding a rigorous back-and-forth travel plan from coast to coast, much as it did last year between road matchups against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Cincinnati Bengals to open the season. "Just being on the West Coast, and the time change, how it is a little tough for your body to adjust to those 10 a.m. (Pacific time, 1:00 p.m. Eastern) kickoffs if you're not used to it," head coach Kyle Shanahan explained last
