49ers injury news: Ronald Blair, Weston Richburg, Jullian Taylor start 2020 season on PUP list

Sep 5, 2020 at 3:27 PM--


Three San Francisco 49ers players will start the season on the reserve/physically-unable-to-perform list. They are as follows:


These players will be unable to play or practice with the team for the first six weeks of the season.

Blair suffered an ACL injury during Week 10 last season. Richburg sustained a torn patellar tendon during Week 14. Taylor suffered an ACL injury ahead of Week 17.

While Richburg and Taylor were not expected to be ready for the start of the season, head coach Kyle Shanahan had expressed hope that Blair would return by Week 1.

"Love Ronald Blair," Shanahan said on August 28. "Expect to have him back, definitely this year. That hasn't changed. I'm hoping for Week 1. We'll probably get some more clarity on that, probably over the next week, because I want to make sure to give him a practice before he would come out there. But we're getting close to being able to make a decision on that."

49ers' Ronald Blair had a setback, PUP players expected to miss more time, says Kyle Shanahan

Don't expect the San Francisco 49ers to get defensive linemen Ronald Blair and Jullian Taylor, or center Weston Richburg, anytime soon. Kyle Shanahan revealed on Friday that Blair suffered a setback with his recovery from the ACL injury he sustained last season. That will push back his return. "Ronald Blair did have a setback," Shanahan said. "Had to redo some things to his knee, some stuff that they messed up in it. He is doing a lot better from that but that's why he's going to be a couple of weeks longer than expected." All three, in fact, aren't expected to return until sometime between Weeks 10 and 12 now. While they will each be eligible to return from physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) sooner, Shanahan says they won't be healthy enough to do so until

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that running back Raheem Mostert suffered a high-ankle sprain on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. "We'll see how it progresses," Shanahan said. "Most likely IR (for Mostert)." Mostert will have company. Center Ben Garland left Sunday's game with a calf strain and will be "out for a while," according to Shanahan. He will "most likely" land on injured reserve later this week too. Shanahan said Hroniss Grasu would replace Garland until center Weston Richburg can return (see below). Shanahan also provided the following injury updates. Safety Jaquiski Tartt suffered a groin strain. The 49ers will learn more this week about the severity of the

Kyle Shanahan still has confidence in Trent Taylor, explains reduced opportunities

By David Bonilla
Oct 26, 2020

Trent Taylor was a training camp star for the San Francisco 49ers in August. That hasn't carried over into the regular season for the fourth-year wide receiver. Taylor has just six receptions for 45 yards through seven games this season. He's hauled in just one reception for eight yards since Week 3. Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today and was asked about Taylor's reduced production. The coach explained that the team still has faith in the receiver, but other factors have produced fewer opportunities. Shanahan made it clear, though, that Taylor is not dealing with an injury, as was the case over the last two seasons. "Yeah, Trent is healthy," Shanahan said. "I definitely could find more ways to [get him more involved in the offense]. I've got a
