49ers-Jets: Watch rookie Brandon Aiyuk steal first NFL catch

Sep 20, 2020 at 10:56 AM--


San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk made his first NFL catch on Sunday against the New York Jets. It was an eight-yard gain on a pass from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Aiyuk stole the reception from Kendrick Bourne, though, as he stepped in front of his teammate to haul in the pass.


Aiyuk, a first-round pick in April, is making his NFL debut after missing Week 1 as he continued recovering from a hamstring injury.

The 49ers currently lead the Jets 14-3 at MetLife Stadium but are without several key players, including tight end George Kittle on offense and cornerback Richard Sherman on defense. The team also watched defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas get carted off in the first quarter.

San Francisco entered the game as 7-point favorites.

Several returning players took part in the session as the team prepares to host the Miami Dolphins this weekend at Levi's Stadium. "I can't tell you how nice it was today to have [Jimmy Garoppolo and Raheem Mostert], especially, in the huddle with us," Juszczyk told Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky on 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. "Shoot, I got in the huddle today, I had George (Kittle) on my right, I had Deebo (Samuel) on my left, Jimmy and Raheem

First, it's important to note that San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw doesn't typically provide lengthy answers to questions. It's just not his style. However, he did have a longer-than-usual response on Thursday when asked to identify a teammate who has been most helpful during his transition from the college game to the pros. That player is sixth-year defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who has taken on a mentorship role with the first-year defender. "I've been leaning on Arik a lot," Kinlaw said. "Just love getting some feedback from him. Just love watching film with him, and I've been watching film with him.
