49ers placing Richard Sherman on short-term injured reserve due to calf strain

Sep 16, 2020 at 8:44 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are placing cornerback Richard Sherman on short-term injured reserve, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. That means missing at least the next three games.

While Garafolo didn't have the specifics of the injury, merely noting that it was a "leg issue," his colleague, Ian Rapoport later reported that Sherman suffered a calf strain, which requires "a few weeks of rest and rehab."


Head coach Kyle Shanahan last spoke with reporters on Monday and did not include Sherman in his injury updates following Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. We'll likely receive some more clarification this afternoon when Shanahan next speaks with reporters.

RELATED 49ers CB Ahkello Witherspoon is in the concussion protocol

The injury leaves Emmanuel Moseley and Ahkello Witherspoon as the likely starting cornerbacks over the next three games. It is unknown if Jason Verrett is healthy enough to return to the field. He has been dealing with a hamstring injury and was among the 49ers' inactive players during Week 1.

The earliest Sherman can return is October 11 against the Miami Dolphins at Levi's Stadium.

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team has placed Deebo Samuel on injured reserve. The move will force the second-year wide receiver to miss at least three games under the NFL's new injured-reserve rules, meaning the earliest he would be available is for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan had hoped that the receiver would be available for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but the 49ers never cleared Samuel to practice this week. Shanahan was asked on Friday why San Francisco had not yet placed Samuel on injured reserve. "Because we believed he had a good chance to play this week," Shanahan
