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."

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.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and provided some good news regarding George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end will return to practice after sustaining an MCL sprain during Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals and missing this past weekend's matchup against the New York Jets. He is, however, expected to be limited. Kittle's status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants will be dependent on how he looks during practices this week. Shanahan also noted that running back Tevin Coleman's knee sprain is more severe than Raheem Mostert's knee injury.

The San Francisco 49ers were the lone NFC West squad that failed to win its 2020 opener. Kyle Shanahan's team lost 24-20 to the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. Earlier on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Atlanta Falcons 38-25. Later, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-17 in the first game at SoFi Stadium — albeit without fans to watch. That means the 49ers start their 2020 season, which the team was so eager to begin as it attempts to make amends from February's Super Bowl loss, in last place within the NFC West.
