No news is good news for several 49ers returning from injuries

Aug 2, 2020 at 2:57 PM--

A Super Bowl contender could be getting even better this season. The San Francisco 49ers are receiving several reinforcements from last year's injury-depleted roster.

Players entered the team's facilities this weekend after each underwent two COVID-19 tests and took part in physicals on Saturday. Sunday's lack of announcements bodes well for several players who missed all or part of last season. That is good news as the 49ers prepare to start training camp.

Running back Jerick McKinnon is returning from an ACL injury sustained before the start of the 2018 season. He had a setback last year during training camp and again landed on injured reserve. McKinnon has yet to make his 49ers regular-season debut.

Wide receiver Jalen Hurd missed his rookie season due to a back injury after appearing in one preseason game.

Wide receiver Trent Taylor is working his way back from a foot injury.

Cornerback Jason Verrett once again landed on injured reserve after a setback returning from a torn Achilles tendon.

D.J. Jones should provide a boost for the defensive line as he returns from the high-ankle sprain suffered in December.

Swing tackle Shon Coleman suffered a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle during the preseason.

Cornerback Tim Harris missed the season with a groin injury, also suffered during the preseason.
