49ers injury news: WR J.J. Nelson expected to miss a month, says Kyle Shanahan

Aug 28, 2020 at 9:43 AM--

Add wide receiver J.J. Nelson (knee) to the San Francisco 49ers' growing list of injuries. At that position group alone, the Niners are without Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, Richie James, and Jalen Hurd.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes to have Samuel and Aiyuk back for Week 1. James will miss some time, and Hurd's season is over.

Shanahan revealed the latest injury during a KNBR interview on Friday morning.

"J.J. Nelson has come in and done a real good job," Shanahan said on the Murph & Mac show while discussing the receivers. "He's been banged up the last two days. We just got some injury stuff on him yesterday, so he's probably going to be out here for the next month, so you lose another (receiver)."

San Francisco added Nelson earlier this month. The Arizona Cardinals made the receiver a fifth-round selection out of UAB in 2015. He spent last season with the Oakland Raiders, where he caught four passes for 36 yards and a score.

Nelson has compiled 85 receptions for 1,475 yards with 11 touchdowns in his five NFL seasons.

After further evaluation, #49ers DE Dee Ford is expected to

Fans were awaiting word on the status of San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, who appeared to suffer a leg injury before halftime during Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle ended up playing in the second half but was held without a catch after his injury. It sounds like Kittle, at least in his mind, plans to play in Sunday's road game against the New York Jets as the 49ers try to get into the win column. "Good to go," Kittle texted Mike Silver of NFL Network. "On to New York!" That's some positive news, assuming the 49ers medical and coaching staffs feel the same way. Fans probably remember that Kittle suffered

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday afternoon that running back Tevin Coleman suffered a knee sprain but didn't go into too much detail surrounding his status. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Coleman is expected to miss "multiple weeks." Shanahan already confirmed that running back Raheem Mostert (MCL sprain) would likely be ruled out for this weekend's game against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. That means the team could enter Week 3 without both of its top two running backs on the depth
