49ers-Giants Injury Report: George Kittle limited, Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t practice; no Barkley or Shepard for NY

Sep 23, 2020 at 12:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The 49ers lost defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the season. Both suffered ACL injuries in a span of three plays against the New York Jets.

The good news is that tight end George Kittle returned to practice on Wednesday after missing Week 2 with a sprained MCL and bone bruise, per ESPN. He was limited, though.

San Francisco is unlikely to have its two top running backs — Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman — on Sunday. Mostert's MCL sprain isn't expected to lead to an extended absence, but head coach Kyle Shanahan said Coleman could miss four weeks and is a candidate for short-term injured reserve.

The 49ers could also be without quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who on Sunday suffered a high-ankle sprain. Although, his availability hasn't been completely ruled out. Garoppolo did not practice on Wednesday.

Defensive end Dee Ford (back) also did not practice and is expected to miss Week 3.

"When you're dealing with a back injury, you really don't know the timetable," Shanahan said. "I know he's gotten some medicine this week that we're hoping helps, but that's a wait-and-see approach. So each day, you're looking at him to see how it goes."

Cornerback Jason Verrett returned to practice for the first time since sustaining a hamstring injury during training camp.

The Giants will be without running back Saquon Barkley and wide receiver Sterling Shepard on Sunday. They lost the former for the season to a torn ACL and the latter is dealing with a turf toe injury. Shanahan will see a familiar face in the Giants backfield on Sunday. New York signed Devonta Freeman to replace Barkley. Shanahan was Freeman's offensive coordinator for two seasons in Atlanta.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Giants, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 7 contest against the New England Patriots on Sunday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The big news out of Wednesday's practice was the return of tackle Trent Williams, who missed practice on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury this past weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. Tests this week showed no extensive damage, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Safety Jaquiski Tartt remains sidelined with a groin injury. Also worth noting is that two players on injured reserve, tight end Jordan Reed (knee) and cornerback K'Waun Williams (knee), looked as though

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 6 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Jimmy Garoppolo was a full participant in practice after his injured ankle hindered him during Sunday's loss to the Miami Dolphins, leading to the quarterback being benched at halftime. Head coach Kyle Shanahan remains hopeful that Garoppolo can start this weekend and be more effective against the Rams defense. "If he has a good week of practice, and it looks like he gives us the best chance to win, then I won't hesitate," Shanahan said before practice. "If it looks like it hurts in the game, and it's prohibiting him, then we'll do what we did again." Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is working his way back

49ers-Patriots: Bill Belichick says George Kittle 'doesn't have any weak points,' opts not to discuss Jimmy Garoppolo trade again

By David Bonilla
Oct 19, 2020

Jimmy Garoppolo played his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with the New England Patriots under coach Bill Belichick. The Patriots traded him to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Garoppolo became the starter for the 49ers, signed a five-year contract during the ensuing offseason, and last season led the team to a Super Bowl appearance. Belichick, while speaking with 49ers reporters via a conference call on Monday, was asked what he's seen from Garoppolo's development since the trade. "Well, we haven't played him since then," Belichick responded. "I haven't really studied him, but we'll take a close look. But I mean, it just looks like about what I thought it would like. I mean, he's a quality player. The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you
