49ers’ Ronald Blair had a setback, PUP players expected to miss more time, says Kyle Shanahan

Oct 16, 2020 at 1:53 PM--


Don't expect the San Francisco 49ers to get defensive linemen Ronald Blair and Jullian Taylor, or center Weston Richburg, anytime soon. Kyle Shanahan revealed on Friday that Blair suffered a setback with his recovery from the ACL injury he sustained last season. That will push back his return.

"Ronald Blair did have a setback," Shanahan said. "Had to redo some things to his knee, some stuff that they messed up in it. He is doing a lot better from that, but that's why he's going to be a couple of weeks longer than expected."

In fact, all three aren't expected to return until sometime between Weeks 10 and 12 now. While they will each be eligible to return from physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) sooner, Shanahan says they won't be healthy enough to do so until later. All three players will remain on PUP for now.

Taylor is also returning from an ACL injury, while Richburg is attempting to come back from a torn patellar tendon. All three landed on injured reserve last season.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan says parting with Jimmy Garoppolo would be hard now that a rookie QB is on the way

When the question arose during 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch's predraft press conference of whether or not quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would still be on the 49ers roster at the end of this week, Shanahan at first gave a very unusual and cryptic answer. Shanahan and Lynch were asked directly early in Monday's press conference if they could guarantee Garoppolo would remain with the team through Sunday, given the fact they intend to draft his eventual replacement with the third overall pick in this week's NFL Draft. Shanahan answered in the negative -- in his own, unique way. "I can't guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday, so I can't guarantee who will be on our roster on Sunday," Shanahan said. "So that goes for



49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says league trends don't guide his quarterback preference

Are the 49ers looking to follow in the footsteps of the rest of the league and add a multidimensional quarterback like Patrick Mahomes or Josh Allen to their roster? Not necessarily, based on what 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday. With the 49ers set to add a quarterback with the third overall pick in this week's NFL Draft and a contrast in styles expected to be available to them in perceived pocket passer Mac Jones along with higher-athleticism candidates in Trey Lance and Justin Fields, there's been some discussion in the past over whether or not the 49ers will choose to follow league trends and emphasize athleticism in their selection. Shanahan addressed that topic during the 49ers' predraft press conference on Monday, saying he doesn't let any single style or



Kyle Shanahan says 49ers rookie Trey Lance is 'capable of doing everything,' isn't concerned by inexperience

New San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance had just 17 collegiate starts for the North Dakota State Bison. His last game was on October 3, 2020, in a non-conference win over Central Arkansas. Lance wasn't overwhelmingly spectacular in the game, but it followed an impressive 2019 campaign that saw the young quarterback throw for 2,786 yards with 28 touchdowns and no interceptions. Lance was the 49ers' pick at No. 3 overall on Thursday night. He's been San Francisco's pick for a while now, certainly since the team made the trade on March 26 to move up nine spots from No. 12 overall. Head coach Kyle Shanahan grew excited about the idea of adding a dynamic weapon like Lance, and that excitement only grew over the month leading to his selection. Some are concerned
