Dee Ford expected to miss 49ers-Giants with back injury, no timetable for his return

Sep 22, 2020 at 12:24 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers already lost pass rusher Nick Bosa for the season due to a torn ACL. It doesn't sound like the defense will be getting one of its other pass rushers, Dee Ford, back this week.

A back injury kept him sidelined during Week 2, and he is expected to miss this weekend's game against the New York Giants, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.


General manager John Lynch said that Ford started complaining of some neck stiffness last week, leading to tests to determine the extent of the injury. He was ruled out for Week 2's contest against the New York Jets.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan later reported that tests showed Ford is dealing with a back injury. The team has not revealed the severity of the injury, however.

"Any time it's the back, that is an issue," Shanahan said on Monday.

The 49ers in 2019 signed Ford to a five-year deal worth $85 million after surrendering a second-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for the defender. He fought through discomfort during his first season with San Francisco as he dealt with knee and hamstring injuries.

Ford racked up 6.5 regular-season sacks through 11 games and two starts and added another in the playoffs while dealing with injuries last season.

49ers' Ronald Blair had a setback, PUP players expected to miss more time, says Kyle Shanahan

Don't expect the San Francisco 49ers to get defensive linemen Ronald Blair and Jullian Taylor, or center Weston Richburg, anytime soon. Kyle Shanahan revealed on Friday that Blair suffered a setback with his recovery from the ACL injury he sustained last season. That will push back his return. "Ronald Blair did have a setback," Shanahan said. "Had to redo some things to his knee, some stuff that they messed up in it. He is doing a lot better from that but that's why he's going to be a couple of weeks longer than expected." All three, in fact, aren't expected to return until sometime between Weeks 10 and 12 now. While they will each be eligible to return from physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) sooner, Shanahan says they won't be healthy enough to do so until

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that running back Raheem Mostert suffered a high-ankle sprain on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. "We'll see how it progresses," Shanahan said. "Most likely IR (for Mostert)." Mostert will have company. Center Ben Garland left Sunday's game with a calf strain and will be "out for a while," according to Shanahan. He will "most likely" land on injured reserve later this week too. Shanahan said Hroniss Grasu would replace Garland until center Weston Richburg can return (see below). Shanahan also provided the following injury updates. Safety Jaquiski Tartt suffered a groin strain. The 49ers will learn more this week about the severity of the

49ers scratching their heads on offense after back-to-back losses

After putting up over 30 points in each of their two road wins against the New York Jets in Week 2 and the New York Giants in Week 3, the San Francisco 49ers are suddenly looking for answers on offense after back-to-back home losses to the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins. The 49ers put up over 400 yards and found the end zone three times in their 25-20 Week 4 loss to the Eagles but also turned the ball over three times while allowing five sacks. They took more steps in the wrong direction in Sunday's 43-17 loss to the Dolphins, putting up just 259 yards of offense while once again allowing five sacks while giving up three turnovers. Injuries have undoubtedly been part of the problem on offense, where every position has had at least one key player miss
