Shanahan: Trade status of 49ers WR Dante Pettis remains unchanged after injuries

Oct 25, 2020 at 5:06 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers may be down a couple of receivers in the near future due to injury, but that doesn't necessarily mean the team will pass up on a good trade offer for wide receiver Dante Pettis if one comes its way before the upcoming NFL trade deadline.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel sustained a hamstring injury in Sunday's 33-6 win over the New England Patriots, while wide receiver Richie James came down with an ankle injury. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game that the exact severity of each injury and whether or not either player would miss time was unknown. When asked about the status of Pettis, however, Shanahan made it clear the team would continue to listen to any offers that came its way -- even if the odds of anything happening are unlikely.

"I don't think it was real likely before. I don't think anything changes," Shanahan said of Pettis. "That's stuff everyone talks about, especially with the deadline coming up. I'm not sure -- I think it's one week or ten days or something. That's always a big time around now. I know Dante got mentioned a few days ago. We'll see if anything comes up that can help our team, but if it doesn't, I know Dante can help our team being on it too. So, we'll look into those injuries tomorrow and keep laying out all trade possibilities until the deadline's over."

Reports first surfaced last week that the 49ers may be interested in moving Pettis, who hasn't had a major role over the past two seasons after catching 27 passes for 467 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie in 2018. Shanahan confirmed to reporters on Friday that the team has made and taken calls on Pettis, whom the 49ers traded up to obtain in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

"Nothing is imminent," Shanahan said Friday. "Dante's a part of our team, and there's a good chance he could still stay a part of our team. If he does, when his number's needed, and he gets his opportunity, I plan on him being ready."

This year's NFL trade deadline falls on Tuesday, November 3, at 4 p.m. Eastern Time.

Maybe Jimmy Garoppolo will be the San Francisco 49ers quarterback next season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Tuesday that he expects that to be the case. "I expect Jimmy to be our starter next year," Shanahan told reporters. "I mean, I expect him to come play with us this year (after he recovers from his ankle injury). We have six games left. We are not out of the playoffs yet. I've been on a team that was 3-6 going into a bye week that ended up winning their division. "I think we have guys on this team capable of finishing this the right way. We've got to do it one game at a time, and I hope Jimmy can come back and be a part of that. But to think that we've
