49ers’ injury list is lengthy; team could be down nine starters vs. Giants

Sep 23, 2020 at 7:00 AM--

The 2020 season has not started as the San Francisco 49ers hoped. It was supposed to be a "Legendary Revenge Tour" with the defending NFC champions making amends for February's Super Bowl defeat, climbing back to the top, and walking away with a championship.

Maybe that still happens. But the 49ers will need to get back some of the players from their growing injury list.

The defensive line, which is vital to the defense's success, has already taken a significant hit with the losses of two former first-round picks in Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. Both saw their seasons end during Week 2 after suffering torn ACLs.

Here is an updated list of the 49ers' current injury situation.

Player Pos Injury Status
Tavon Austin WR Knee IR, out for season
Ronald Blair DE Torn ACL (2019) PUP through Week 6
Nick Bosa DE Torn ACL Out for season
Tevin Coleman RB Knee sprain Out multiple weeks
Dee Ford DE Back Unknown
Jimmy Garoppolo QB High-ankle sprain Week-to-week
Dre Greenlaw LB Thigh contusion Unknown
Tim Harris* CB Calf IR through Week 4
Jalen Hurd WR Torn ACL IR, out for season
Richie James Jr. WR Hamstring strain IR through Week 4
D.J. Jones DT Ankle Unknown
George Kittle TE MCL sprain, bone bruise Week-to-week
Raheem Mostert RB MCL sprain Week-to-week
Weston Richburg C Torn patellar (2019) PUP through Week 6
Deebo Samuel WR Jones fracture IR through Week 3
Richard Sherman CB Calf strain IR through Week 4
Jullian Taylor DL Torn ACL (2019) PUP through Week 6
Solomon Thomas DL Torn ACL Out for season
Chris Thompson** WR Unknown IR, out for season
Jason Verrett CB Hamstring strain day-to-day
* Practice squad player
** Waived with an injury designation, reverted to IR

We'll get a better picture of some players' statuses from the official practice participation and injury report released later today.

The 49ers haven't ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's availability for Week 3. Although, all signs point to Nick Mullens making his ninth career start. The team will also likely be without its two top running backs in Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman, which will mean increased roles for Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson Jr.

Several of the 49ers' injuries occurred during Week 2's matchup against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. The 49ers return to that venue on Sunday to play the New York Giants and could be without nine starters thanks to this past weekend's injuries.

Giants reportedly naming a GM today; 49ers assistant GM Adam Peters a finalist

The New York Giants have been a whirlwind of a franchise, last making the playoffs in 2016, and going 22-59 during that time span. In addition, they've churned through three head coaches in that time period with Bob McAdoo, Pat Shurmur, and Joe Judge, while keeping GM Dave Gettleman, who's struggled to identify top-tier talent in the draft, and has made questionable free agent decisions, which is why Judge was fired this offseason, and Gettleman "retired", just like Tom Coughlin a few years back. San Francisco 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters, whose identified talent consistently over the past few years in the draft, is a finalist for New York's GM opening, having completed a second interview yesterday afternoon. The Giants reportedly are
