49ers fear Ziggy Ansah will land on injured reserve with torn biceps, K’Waun Williams to be examined

Oct 4, 2020 at 8:52 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after Sunday night's 25-20 loss against the Philadelphia Eagles at Levi's Stadium and provided some injury updates from the game. Recently signed pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah was ruled "out" at halftime with an arm injury. He was not on the sideline during the second half.

Shanahan informed reporters after the game that Ansah will likely land on injured reserve with a biceps injury. The coach said that early indications were that the defender suffered a biceps tear. Ansah will undergo an MRI tomorrow to confirm the severity of the injury.

San Francisco added Ansah after losing second-year pass rusher Nick Bosa to a torn ACL. The team's veteran pass rusher, Dee Ford, was placed on injured reserve on Saturday due to a back injury. There is no timetable for his return.

Cornerback K'Waun Williams left the game in the fourth quarter after a collision with an Eagles player. He limped off the field under his own power, left for the team's locker room, and was listed as "questionable" to return. Shanahan said Williams suffered a knee sprain and the team will examine him further tonight and take a look at the results tomorrow.

Jamar Taylor replaced Williams.

Cornerback Jason Verrett briefly left the game with a hand injury but quickly returned. Wide receiver Dante Pettis suffered a knee injury but also returned.

Shanahan also said he wasn't sure about quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's status for Week 5. The coach is hopeful Garoppolo will be available for Wednesday's practice.

Pro Football Focus released its latest mock draft, courtesy of analyst Ben Linsey. The San Francisco 49ers are highly anticipated to select a quarterback following their recent trade up to the No. 3 spot. They'll have their choice of some good options. With Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson nearly a lock to go No. 1 and No. 2, San Francisco can go with Justin Fields of Ohio State, Trey Lance of North Dakota State, or Mac Jones of Alabama. Linsey has San Francisco going with the player who has been the popular choice among 49ers fans—Fields. "Fields' game has been put under the



Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's



Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:



Breer: Don't buy the pre-draft hype; 49ers keeping QB evaluations 'close to the vest'

Mac Jones to the San Francisco 49ers is a done deal, right? That's what every analyst and evaluator would have you believe. Much of that originated from NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms, a close friend of head coach Kyle Shanahan, stating that he believes the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot to draft Jones. Shanahan debunked that last week. Not the idea that Jones might be the pick, but that Simms might have some insight into the team's plans. "Trust me, Chris talks about everything," Shanahan said. "Therefore, I haven't been able to talk to him in a couple of years. Anyone who you're friends with who speaks in the media, and people think you're friends with them, that means you're not allowed to tell them anything. That's why he doesn't even ask me stuff.
