49ers-Jets Injury Report: Brandon Aiyuk practices while George Kittle, Ahkello Witherspoon don’t

Sep 16, 2020 at 3:35 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Tight end George Kittle did not practice after suffering a knee sprain during Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the earliest he would practice would be on Friday but also noted that his tight end could play on Sunday even if that doesn't happen.

Cornerback Richard Sherman on Wednesday landed on injured reserve. He will have to miss at least the next three games, making his potential return on October 11 against the Miami Dolphins, at the earliest.

It was revealed on Wednesday that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon is in the concussion protocol, an injury he sustained on Sunday. He also did not practice.

The good news is that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and center Ben Garland were full participants in practice, as neither appeared on Wednesday's injury list. That is a good indication that both might be available on Sunday. Shanahan had initially said both would be limited.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Jets, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Defensive backs Dontae Johnson, Emmanuel Moseley, Jimmie Ward did not practice. Moseley remains in the concussion protocol while Ward is dealing with a wrist injury. "We weren't concerned at all, just because it was just sore," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday of Ward's injury. "That's why we didn't talk about it. But today, it was sorer, and the fact that it was getting a little worse and not better, we just wanted to do some tests on it. I'm pretty optimistic about it. We're doing this more for precautionary reasons right now." The good news is that Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be making progress in his

49ers-Dolphins: Kyle Shanahan explains why it took so long to replace Brian Allen with Ahkello Witherspoon

Were you wondering what took so long for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to pull Brian Allen after it was clear the Miami Dolphins were targeting and embarrassing the cornerback early? Shanahan explained his reasoning after the 43-17 defeat that left the 49ers still winless at home. "Just because of how down we were (with the cornerback numbers) going into the game," Shanahan told reporters. "We got him off of practice squad this week with the injuries that we had. (Ken) Webster was his backup." Ahkello Witherspoon eventually replaced Allen, but much of the damage had already been done. "Ahkello, he tried to go this week," Shanahan continued, "but he was too tight to go throughout practice this week. Because of our low

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, the day after the team's 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Here is everything he had to say. 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. I realize players often side or err on the side of wanting to play, but
