Kyle Shanahan discusses rookie Brandon Aiyuk’s potential workload in 49ers-Cardinals game

Sep 11, 2020 at 3:07 PM--


Second-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been ruled out of the San Francisco 49ers' Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. He did not practice this week and has not received any on-field work since suffering a Jones fracture in June.

Rookie wideout Brandon Aiyuk did return to practice this week and was listed as "questionable" on the team's official injury report on Friday.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after Friday's practice and was asked about his process in determining Aiyuk's potential role and workload on Sunday — assuming he plays — after missing time with a hamstring injury.

"My process is different with each individual," Shanahan said. "It kind of depends on how I feel about the individual, and what they can handle, what they can do with the limited reps. One good thing is we usually don't let guys come back and put them in practice until they've had a few healthy days before that. So it means he's going in the right direction."

Shanahan noted during a KNBR interview Friday morning that Aiyuk's status would be a game-day decision.

"Right now, I feel he could get through it," Shanahan said Friday afternoon. "We've just got to decide what that risk is. That will be something that you constantly talk to the trainers about, but it's also, at this point, something we've got to keep talking to Brandon about. But we'll make sure we do what's best for him."

As for Samuel, Shanahan said the 49ers believed he had a good chance to play this week. It just didn't work out.

"It didn't go the way we hoped, but it still will be day to day going on this next week," Shanahan added. "... We'll see how next week goes."

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Why did CB Brian Allen get the start and more to the point is why did it take so long to pull him from the game after four series? "Just because of how down we were going into the game. We got him off of practice squad this week because of the injuries we had. [CB Ken] Webster was his backup. [CB] Ahkello [Witherspoon], he tried to go this week, but he was too tight to go throughout practice all week, but because of our low numbers, we still dressed him for emergency. So, we were trying to hold out, see how

Kyle Shanahan discusses the possibility of the 49ers trading for roster help

As the trade deadline approached last year, the San Francisco 49ers were engaged in trade talks with the Denver Broncos to acquire wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders. The Niners saw him as a player who could help them win a championship, and the team nearly did that but fell just short in Super Bowl LIV. Could general manager John Lynch and the 49ers make a similar move this season? This year's trade deadline is on November 3. "John and his group, they're always looking into all possibilities on that stuff," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared with reporters on Monday. "I mean, they're watching film on the whole league day in and day out. And they're always on the phone and stuff, whether it's John or other guys, some of the scouts, or whoever. They're always having a

Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. Opening comments: "All right guys, injuries. [LB] Kwon Alexander, didn't have it last night, but he has a possible high ankle sprain. We don't know the severity of it yet. We'll find out more on that by Wednesday. [DL] D.J. Jones, eye. I expect him back at practice Wednesday. Go ahead." This question comes in light of a couple of the decisions as far as who to start and who not to start yesterday.
