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 attempts to explain Arik Armstead's drop in production

Some subscribe to the idea that you shouldn't hand a big payday to a player whose outlier season falls during a contract year. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead's career-best season came last year when he led the San Francisco 49ers with 10 sacks. The production came during his fifth-year option, and the 49ers rewarded the defender this offseason with a five-year, $85 million deal. Armstead had a lot of help along the defensive line last season. He had rookie phenom Nick Bosa and veteran Dee Ford (at times) causing havoc on the edges. He had DeForest Buckner plugging up the middle. It truly was one of the best defensive lines the Niner Faithful had seen in a long while. And

Kyle Shanahan expects rookie receiver Jauan Jennings to return this season

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Jauan Jennings landed on the practice squad injured reserve list on October 24. Nothing was really said of his injury, though. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about his 23-year-old receiver and revealed that the rookie is dealing with a hamstring injury. Shanahan doesn't expect Jennings to remain out for the remainder season, though. The coach hopes his young receiver can return soon and maybe even contribute, if needed. "I'm hoping [he returns]," Shanahan told reporters. "We think (he's) about three weeks away. It was tough because he was doing really good in practice and definitely would have ended up helping us this year. But he pulled his hamstring really bad, as bad as anyone we've had this

Kyle Shanahan discusses the ups and downs of the 49ers' injury-plagued season

"Injury-plagued" probably doesn't begin to describe what the San Francisco 49ers have gone through this season. Injury-ravaged? Snake-bitten? Cursed? Whatever you want to call it, head coach Kyle Shanahan knows it is unprecedented. Just look at the different sets of offensive weapons he's had available from week to week this season. It's a challenge to find consecutive games during which San Francisco has enjoyed consistency on the depth chart. That has made it difficult for the 49ers to maintain chemistry and build upon any momentum. "I thought we had that going a little bit at the Rams week into the New England week," Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "That was about three weeks in a row where we got Deebo
