49ers’ Emmanuel Moseley visited specialist; Kyle Shanahan hopes to get him back this week

Oct 11, 2020 at 4:47 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have a compromised defensive backfield. That was evident during the team's 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Richard Sherman and Emmanuel Moseley opened the season as the starting cornerbacks. Sherman hasn't played since Week 1, but head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes he can begin practicing this week.

Moseley has missed the last two games as he continues to recover from a concussion he suffered during Week 3. Moseley recently saw a specialist, and Shanahan sounded optimistic about the cornerback's return.

"He did see a specialist. I think we got had some pretty good news on that," Shanahan said after the game. "We're still waiting. I don't have anything confirmed yet, but I'm really hoping we can get him back this week.

"I know if E-Man's able to at all, he will, so hopefully we'll hear some good news in the next couple of days and get him back in practice."

The 49ers started Sunday's game with Jason Verrett and Brian Allen as the outside cornerbacks. Ahkello Witherspoon eventually replaced Allen, but only after the Dolphins targeted him early and jumped to a significant lead.

Allen was among two players activated from the practice squad on Saturday. The other was wide receiver Kevin White.

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick finished the day 22-of-28 for 350 yards and three touchdowns.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 13 contest against the Buffalo Bills. They are practicing in Glendale, Arizona for the foreseeable future after being forced to move out of Santa Clara County due to local restrictions, which now prohibit contact sports. The team will host Monday night's "home game" at State Farm Stadium. Deebo Samuel did not practice. Although, head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that the team is being cautious with the second-year receiver. Sunday was his first game back since injuring his hamstring on October 25, and Samuel was a little sore this week. Also not practicing is cornerback K'Waun Williams, who Shanahan said is not

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Richard Sherman potentially playing safety: "I wouldn't put anything past him"

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman has indicated that he plans to play until he is about 35 years old. That means maybe three more years. At least, that was the plan a couple of years ago. "I think 35 is probably my cutoff," Sherman said in his first season with the 49ers. "They'd have a hard time getting me out of the bed at 35 to go play." Would Sherman consider a move to safety before then, if necessary? He's spoken to Charles Woodson, who successfully did so during his career, about the idea. "At some point, everybody makes the transition to safety if you're smart enough to play that game," Sherman said. "I'll probably do that in

49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Nick Mullens: 'He gives us a chance to win, but we've got to play better around him'

Quarterback Nick Mullens hasn't been thrown into the best situation. He has taken over an injury-ravaged San Francisco 49ers roster that is just now starting to get some of its key players back. Yet, it remains far from full-strength. With Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined with a high-ankle sprain until at least Week 15, it's Mullens at the helm of the 49ers offense for now. He has completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 1,390 yards with six touchdowns through six games and four starts this season. The quarterback has also thrown six interceptions and posted a passer rating of over 90.0 just twice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan can't deny that Mullens has been up and down this season. Not all of it is his fault, though. The quarterback has been dealt a difficult hand. In one
