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.

Rapoport: Kyle Shanahan says 49ers are 'definitely considering' Mac Jones but isn't tipping hand

First off, let's make it clear that it would be irresponsible for the San Francisco 49ers to deny anything when it comes to guesswork surrounding their 2021 NFL Draft intentions. Yes, they own the No. 3 overall pick, but that doesn't mean they want everyone to know what they plan to do. Everyone expects quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson to go one and two in the draft ... but it's the NFL Draft. Nothing is a certainty. A national narrative has been created that indicates the favorite to land with San Francisco is former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones. Maybe that will be the case. Maybe not. The team could also select Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to



Justin Fields to throw again for NFL teams on April 14; 49ers expected to attend

Much was said of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch's absences from Ohio State's pro day last week. Instead of traveling to Columbus to watch quarterback Justin Fields, a candidate to be drafted with the team's No. 3 overall pick, the duo was in Tuscaloosa for Alabama's pro day, watching Mac Jones. Why Jones over Fields? "[Just] talking with Fields' agent [David Mulugheta] and everything, we'll get another one from him too," Shanahan explained last week, per Kirk Larrabee. "So we'll be able to see him. That kind of made it an easy decision." According to Fields' agent, that next opportunity will come on

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold his second pro day workout on Wednesday, April 14. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to be in attendance. Both missed the former Buckeye quarterback's first pro day to attend Mac Jones' workout in Tuscaloosa. Shanahan and Lynch will have an opportunity to see quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in person too. He will hold a second pro day on Monday, April 19 — 10 days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. North Dakota St. QB Trey Lance has now scheduled his second pro day for April 19, or 10 days before



As expected, pre-draft buzz starts trending toward Justin Fields-to-49ers

Probably much to the delight of most of The Faithful, the pre-draft buzz surrounding former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields landing with the San Francisco 49ers appears to be trending upwards. Of course, this wasn't unexpected. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were in Columbus yesterday with a handful of other teams to watch Fields throw. San Francisco owns the No. 3 overall pick. LOT of buzz connecting Fields to 3/SF in last 24 hours.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) April 15,
