49ers’ Kyle Shanahan expects Mohamed Sanu to be suited up and ready to help vs. Jets, if needed

Sep 17, 2020 at 6:22 PM--


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mohammed Sanu, barring any complications, should join his new teammates tomorrow and practice with them for the first time since signing a one-year deal earlier this week.

Tomorrow's practice will just be a walk-through. Typically, missing each full practice in the days preceding a game would reduce a player's chances of playing — especially a new player. Sanu, however, is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, having played within it during his time with the Atlanta Falcons.

That, combined with the injury concerns at the position, could mean fans get to see Sanu out on the field against the New York Jets.

Shanahan joined KNBR on Thursday and was asked if Sanu might play on Sunday.

"Yeah, it is possible," Shanahan responded on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He's been here on Zoom meetings. He's not allowed in our building until tomorrow. Tomorrow is just a walk-through, but we're hoping to get five receivers up, and he's on our roster, so he'd be our guy right now.

"As long as he can come in — we get to talk to him tomorrow — I expect him to dress and at least be out there to help us out if need be."

Sanu has caught 403 passes for 4,507 yards with 26 touchdowns through his eight NFL seasons. He registered 59 receptions for 520 yards with two touchdowns through 15 games between the Falcons and New England Patriots last season.

You can listen to the entire conversation with Shanahan below.

Jerry Rice feels Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't ready, expects C.J. Beathard to start for 49ers-Rams

Jimmy Garoppolo didn't sound overly confident that he would start on Sunday night when the San Francisco 49ers host the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium. The Niners still seek their first home win of the season, and Garoppolo didn't play particularly well (OK, it was really bad) during this past weekend's embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Garoppolo had missed two games while recovering from a high-ankle sprain and didn't look completely healthy as he went 7-of-17 for 77 yards with two interceptions and a passer rating of 15.7. "I really haven't thought that far ahead," Garoppolo responded when asked about his chances of playing in Week 6. "I guess we'll

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo has looked good in practice, is expected to help 49ers vs. Rams

Head coach Kyle Shanahan sounds confident that Jimmy Garoppolo's next outing will be better than his last. Hindered by his ankle injury, the quarterback was pulled after two quarters this past Sunday in the Niners' embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. "Jimmy threw it good in warmups. He threw it good on the Thursday and Friday of practice (last week)," Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "But when you do have a high-ankle sprain, that [can] come back in a game. And he got sacked a few times before that, and he started to throw it a little bit differently. You could tell it was affecting him a little bit. That's why I do think it affected a number of his throws after that. "And the way the game was going, and when I could

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

By David Bonilla

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
