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.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters after the team's 24-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I know you guys were confident that you'd be able to bounce back, but being able to actually go out and do it, what do you think you learned about yourselves over the last week and coming away with the win tonight? "It was really just about coming into this game, you could feel in the locker room throughout the entire week, it was a different mindset that everyone had. The last couple of weeks before this, no one liked that feeling. It wasn't who we are as a team and I think this week it just kind of

49ers succeed in cooling down red-hot Rams DL Aaron Donald

By Kirk Larrabee

Facing Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald is always a formidable test for the 49ers -- one they haven't always succeeded in passing. But in the latest chapter of the 49ers vs. Aaron Donald, the 49ers proved to be up to the task. The two-time defensive player of the year Donald has absolutely wrecked the 49ers at times in the past, with perhaps his most memorable performance coming in a 39-10 win in 2018 when he had nine tackles, four sacks, six tackles for loss, and one fumble recovery. Donald had a similar impact in his team's 30-10 win over Washington last week, another game in which he had four sacks. Donald came into Sunday's game against the 49ers with a league-leading 7.5 sacks, while the Rams as a team were tied for the league
