49ers injury news: Kyle Shanahan would be ‘very surprised’ if Nick Bosa and Dee Ford weren’t available for Week 1

Sep 2, 2020 at 1:05 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom on Wednesday and shared some positive news on the injury front. He expects two of his pass rushers — Nick Bosa (leg) and Dee Ford (calf) — to be ready for Week 1.

"They're not coming back today, but no, I'm not concerned," Shanahan said. "I'd be very surprised if they're not ready to go for Week 1."

Shanahan didn't have any updates on the team's other injured players — names like George Kittle (hamstring), Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring), Dre Greenlaw (concussion), Ross Dwelley (foot), and Ben Garland (ankle).

"No updates. They're all about in the same situation," Shanahan said. "I think Kittle might do a little bit today, but we're still taking care of him."

Shanahan did note that he remains hopeful that Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel (foot) will be ready for Week 1.

"We're hoping to get both of those guys back next week," Shanahan noted before adding that there will be some catch-up work for both receivers after they can get back on the practice field.

Said Shanahan: "We're counting on those guys to be out there, but what's been good is the opportunities they've opened up for everyone else. We've had some other guys step it up. Regardless of who we have up next week, I feel we're going to have guys going in there who know what to do, and guys who give us a chance to win."

Kyle Shanahan: Wide receivers weren't the problem in 49ers loss

By Kirk Larrabee

There's plenty of blame to go around for the 49ers' 24-20 season-opening loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't about to single out his few healthy wide receivers as being part of the problem. Granted, it didn't help the 49ers' cause on Sunday that they were down to three healthy receivers by the time the game ended due to Deebo Samuel (foot) and Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) being sidelined and Richie James (hamstring) exiting the game early. But, while Shanahan wasn't happy with how the offense performed as a whole, in particular its failure to convert more than two of its 13 opportunities on third and fourth downs, he felt the team's remaining receivers -- Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor, and Dante Pettis -- did a solid job under the
